“Very bad service”

Written on: 16/03/2016

Having for the last 3 years argued with Force 8 have had to call in independent builders to rectify a mistake Force 8 have made when installing a new window. They failed to put in a cavity tray and when doing the brick work decided to use foam!!!! On the internal and external brickwork. They also failed to actually put bricks into position leaving a 15 inch gap of no insulation. To sit in a room and look at rust coming through the internal brickwork is very disillusioning. The CEO has also… Read Full Review

As this website doesn't vet any comments or commenters one could easily assume you are a competitor just trying to put people off buying from Force 8

“No Customer Service !”

Written on: 30/10/2015 by ipThorpe201 (1 review written)

I purchased a Black on white Composite door in a white frame & cill in May 2014. Approx. 1 year later my customer called saying the 'Sheen' or Gloss of the black had faded and turned a little dull. I took photos and sent these to Force8. The ONLY Customer service man as far as i can ascertain ! I had to continuously email and send further emails without reply, then tried to call him, but mostly couldn't get hold of him. This was on going for months ( its now October ! ). They finally sent out… Read Full Review

“Excellent!”

Written on: 01/10/2015 by Faulknerrw177 (1 review written)

I had all my 7 windows replaced by Force 8 over 18 years ago -the whole installation went very smoothly and the end result was fantastic - windows that still look as good today as when they were first installed! I have had so many comments on them over the years and never hesitate to recommend them. I recently went back to Force 8 when I decided to get composite front and back doors. Again I am totally delighted with the result - the wood-grain effect looks very smart and the ordering and… Read Full Review

“At your own peril”

Written on: 08/08/2015

Arrogant "salesman" arrived and promised all that I wanted. When Force 8 arrived to fit the (I now consider) overpriced door, they had the wrong glass in it, they fitted a sill that I specifically stated I did not want, I was told I could have a 10mm sill instead I now have a 35mm sill, the door was fitted poorly and with a very low quality euro cylinder. In the glossy brochure they mention how importantly they take security, what a lie. I had to buy another cylinder (lock), a decent one for… Read Full Review

“I am a trader and their service is Great”

Written on: 04/06/2015 by HarryMcBride (1 review written)

Seems there are some comments on here that don't seem to be justified at all. I have been working with Force 8 for over 20 years and they have always been great with me. They have always honoured the 10 year guarantees with their products and usually no quibbles. So, for someone like "windowfitter" to come on here and just talk rubbish, seems very petty and below the belt, I definitely would want to work with someone like him. I actually brought it to the attention of the Force8 team last… Read Full Review

“Avoid at all costs”

Written on: 16/03/2015 by windowfitter (1 review written)

I am a trade installer and have never traded with a company as bad as Force 8. I have purchased 6 doors in total and there has been problems every time from scratches to wrong glass fitted to holes in outer frame that have been filled with stelmax gap sealer to door sashes not fitting the outer frame on arch shapes doors. When contacting them they just shrug it off and pass the buck. I have tried to give them the chance to put things right but my latest door arrived late as usual then it had to… Read Full Review

“Poor service”

Written on: 09/10/2014 by Barnes3 (1 review written)

I received a phone call informing me that the fitter would be late attending as he had to finish a another job. By the afternoon nobody had arrived so I contacted Force 8 to complain. I was then informed that the fitter was to far away from my home to attend that day but he would be with me early the following day. He did arrive the following day to assess the job but then told me his colleague had not turned up for work and therefore could not start the installation. A very poor service… Read Full Review

“Great job and great staff!”

Written on: 10/09/2014 by AlexandraArranz (1 review written)

I am a first time buyer and never purchased windows and doors before. I was dubious about Force 8 after reading one of the comments on here but I decided to obtain a quote nonetheless. The sales person came to see me and he was really nice, not pushy at all; he gave me time to think about the quote. It happened Force 8's quote was the better value out of the 3 so I ordered a full set of windows and a front composite door with them. I don't generally write reviews but I have decided to on… Read Full Review

“Great Job”

Written on: 01/09/2014 by Mary-R (1 review written)

Force8 Doors and Windows. Great service, good value for money and also cleaned up afterwards! I Couldn't fault anything they did. Quotes through to install were all done quickly and efficiently - a good variety of frosted window options too. We had a problem with one of the handles which arrived in white rather than chrome, they changed it straight away without any queries..Force8...... We would not think twice about recommending them, definitely worth getting Force8 and their team in to do… Read Full Review

I had a front door off Force 8 a while ago, and was that please we then had a back door. From the salesman that came round ( and NOT pushy unlike some ! ) to the finest details on the fitting and trimmings of the doors. my mother in law then bought a front door. we have been that pleased we have just ordered a full replacement conservatory, and anyone who would like to see our products and more than welcome ANYTIME just see the sales manager. 10 out of 10 all round… Read Full Review

“Check with Stockport Trading Standards before buying”

Written on: 26/07/2014 by Kamari20 (1 review written)

The horror stories on this site about Force 8 pretty much resemble mine. I had to take them to court to get my money back for a shoddy composite door they supplied. They tried every delaying tactic in the book to avoid taking responsibility for selling me substandard goods. It took 4 years and cost my insurance company £7.5k. Luckily, I had 'legal' on my contents insurance and, therefore, it only cost me £25 in total. I spoke to Stockport Trading Standards about my dealings with Force 8, and… Read Full Review

Written on: 08/08/2014

There are also some atrocious ones. The other double glazing companies don't appear to have the polarised comments that Force 8 do. All you have to do is ring Stockport Trading Standards. They are the ones that have to deal with all the complaints regarding Force 8 and, being Trading Standards, are completely independent.

I have used Force 8 on two separate occasions for windows & doors & both times I have received a very professional service, fitters turned up on time & did a great job & I am delighted with my new doors! I just do not recognise the company described by " Kamari20" I have even recommended to friends & they too are very happy - as far as i'm concerned Force 8 is a great local company!

“Very Very Pleased with the service”

Written on: 01/07/2014 by RomeoSpencer (1 review written)

We Had all our windows and back door replaced a good few years ago from normal to Upvc. And the quality is still the same as it was when it was just installed. The People who gave us the quote were very nice and really helpfull so we could exactly get what we want! The price was really good specially with the warranty and service that they offer. They did all the fitting in no time. What i also appreciated is that afterwards there was no mess for us to clean up. I would really recommand them… Read Full Review

“Very happy with everything”

Written on: 13/06/2014 by MaryGardener (1 review written)

We did what most people do these days and searched over the internet for a local composite doors manufacturer and finally settled for Force8. We made our choice initially based on the fact that they had a showroom locally, a good website and they were friendly when we called them up to book a survey. They turned up when they said they would. They were very professional and not pushy. Their product looked very good and although they were not the cheapest we felt most comfortable with them… Read Full Review

“5 Star Customer Service - Highly Recommended”

Written on: 03/06/2014 by andrewpuddlesworth (1 review written)

I just stumbled across this website and had to write a comment about the great customer service department. We bought from Force 8 because they were local to us in Hazel Grove, Stockport. So we could go round to the show room and pick the styles and colours we wanted. Once we had decided and ordered our arched front door with side panels we were kept informed by the customer services of the progress. After a couple of days we had a change of heart and decide to change the layout which the… Read Full Review

“Brilliant Service and Long lasting quality”

Written on: 24/05/2014 by ReneSheridan (1 review written)

I was just surfing through the internet and came across this review page for Force8 and thought I would share the great experience I had with this company. All too many times people just use these pages to complain and I thought I would express how happy we were with the whole dealings we had with them. We had all our doors and windows replaced 12 years ago by Force8 and when we sold up earlier this year to come to Germany everything still looked like brand new! In fact I think having such… Read Full Review

“Excellent Service - Recommended”

Written on: 23/05/2014 by Elizabeth1976 (1 review written)

We have just had our doors and windows replaced by Force 8 and we are so glad we did. Their installers were very clean and polite and completed the work in no time. We chose Force 8 after much investigations and deliberation and we went round to their show room to look at the quality after being recommended by a close friend. We had an arched door, which was built specially for our home as the opening was not standard. The arch and frame came in one piece without joints, which made for a… Read Full Review

“Great new roof”

Written on: 21/05/2014 by Darius278 (1 review written)

We used Force8 some 18years ago when we had our old windows replaced with new Upvc windows and doors.They did a very good job and the windows are still perfect so we thought we would consider them to replace the polycarbonate plastic roof on our Upvc conservatory (which a national company did and not to a very good standard 9 years ago) We asked Force8 plus 2 other local companies to quote for the job.The surveyor from Force8 came round and new exactly what he was talking about and also showed… Read Full Review

“Wonderful Service”

Written on: 21/05/2014 by teganfudge (1 review written)

We have used Force8 on two occasions. The first to supply a new front door and surrounding frame and secondly to supply window frames at the back of the house. From ordering the door and windows through to the fitting the staff were really helpful. The fitters worked exceptionally hard and quickly and when the job was finished they tidied everything away and then wiped all the windows and frames down. The job was faultless and we are exceptionally pleased with the company's service, we have… Read Full Review
