“Review of Softview Conservatories, Colchester, Essex”

Written on: 29/01/2016 by GmsJms (1 review written)

Awful experience!! Deposit paid for replacement fascias, guttering and drainpipes at the beginning of October 2015 - they were eventually finished on 18th. January 20016. We have had, amongst many things; Work unable to start due to unsafe scaffolding. Work delayed due to scaffolding too close to the work area. Major problem! - work unable to continue due to power lines running to the house - missed by the surveyor. This was then left to us to sort out with the power company. Work delayed… Read Full Review

“great work by softview fitters ”

Written on: 28/01/2016 by shaunrock (1 review written)

The softview fitters did a first class job. They were both friendly and helpful and pointed out any problems they encountered and sorted them quickly and without fuss. They showed me how to use the windows and doors without me asking. Overall my builders and I were really impressed with the work and the quality of the windows and doors. would recommend Softview to anyone looking to have their windows updated… Read Full Review

“Loving my Orangery.......”

Written on: 12/01/2016 by KellyElaine (1 review written)

Just wanted to let you now how pleased I am with the orangerary that you guys installed for me at the end of last year. We absolutely love it – as do all of our friends and neighbours!!! It has made a massive difference to our house and the way we use it. I’d also like to take this opportunity to say how pleased I was with all of the workmen that came to site. It was a pleasure to have each and every one of them working at my home which is a very refreshing experience. Nothing was too… Read Full Review

“Regular customer”

Written on: 24/12/2015 by Lawrencer474 (1 review written)

Having had French doors and a new composite front door I was very confident of going to Softview when we wanted a bay window fitted. The showroom salesmen worked out what I needed from the photo I had of the front of the house and made some very informative recommendations. The installation date was given to me that day and the surveyor contacted us soon afterwards. He ensured that all the details and measurements were correct. He also sent us an email the same day with window layout change… Read Full Review

“Professional, Painless and Perfect”

Written on: 07/12/2015 by robbie2007 (1 review written)

The job was done on schedule and the installers worked like dervishes. I couldn't believe they fitted all the windows and front and back doors to my 4 bedroom detached house in just 3 days! They were very tidy and were careful not to break any of the tile work around the windows in the kitchen, bathrooms and cloakroom. A couple of the window handles didn't click smoothly in the vented window position, but Softview sent a senior guy around the very next day to make some minor adjustments, and… Read Full Review

“Rubish after sales service”

Written on: 25/09/2015 by Higginsqt33 (1 review written)

After twelve visits, many hours wasted and countless phone calls I have at last had a completely new frame and door fitted. The first door was fitted incorrectly but if I had not kept on phoning and insisting it was wrong and demanding my money back, I know nothing would have been sorted out. Bad after sales service. I have sent two letters to the MD in the last few weeks and they can't even be bothered to reply. If you are lucky enough for your fitting to go OK the first time, then great. But… Read Full Review

“End of terrace happiness”

Written on: 20/08/2015 by kazza19 (1 review written)

Great result, making the house look smart. Love driving up to the house now. As a customer service manager myself I think this company is spot on with their service and aftercare. My husband works nightshift, the workmen took that in to consideration at all times, keeping the noose to a minimum… Read Full Review

“2 faboulous front doors”

Written on: 27/07/2015 by parliament_retreat (1 review written)

A professional service that included a sales representative who measured up and discussed the possible options for my two doors. Within four weeks we had the doors installed. Both doors were exactly as expected, and the service in-house was tremendous. Would thoroughly recommend! The doors really have enhanced the front of the property and are excellent value for money. Thanks Softview… Read Full Review

“Would not recommend! ”

Written on: 22/06/2015 by avHanley380 (1 review written)

We used this company to install a front door and patio door. The quality of initial work was disgraceful and the quality of the products themselves have been poor. The front door faded then peeled within 5 years and the replacement door has just been one big headache! I am sick of phoning them to complain to be honest. I would not recommend this company and highly recommend you steer clear… Read Full Review

“Large corporate project”

Written on: 09/03/2015 by Janetp263 (1 review written)

We had very specific requirements for our large office/warehouse facility, in that the window frames and doors had to be an exact corporate colour, the window tints had to be matched to existing and some large areas of curtain walling were in need of replacement. Softview sent their surveyor to assess our requirements and dealt with all aspects of the supply, fitting and making good in a very experienced and professional manner. Their quotation was very competitive and we were very pleased… Read Full Review

“More than once”

Written on: 06/03/2015 by TheScoutLeader (1 review written)

I have had two complete projects completed by soft view/ Gavin mills over the last 20 years and all are still Ok on both of the properties, the second one is 10+ years and still going strong. We are still living there. The price was better than anywhere else I had been. We got what we paid for and more. The only thing that thay have been back for, is to adjust the door. So what can I say "Value for money, Great product, good service. Happy to recommend them to anyone… Read Full Review
