“Composite door colour fade”

Written on: 13/05/2021 by ChrisGislingham (1 review written)

The company who fitted my composite front door sourced it from Force8. After a number of years there appeared a horizontal faded band across the door. When contacted and eventually acknowledged they refused to inspect the door and said that their supplier would not honour the warranty stating I had stuck something to it. A quick examination from themselves would have shown that the colour had not been pulled off but faded from the inside. Communication with this company is awful. They ignore… Read Full Review

“Awful company to deal with!”

Written on: 02/03/2020 by Russellga408 (1 review written)

No, I wouldn't recommend this company. We bought a door off them, trade, in June 2019 and it is not fit for purpose, it leaks through the door panels and round the letter box, we have refitted it, at our expense, and re-plastered, makes no difference. We have sent photos. The paint wore off within weeks of fitting it. We had to reorder more paint which took weeks as they ignore your emails, eventually they sent us the wrong colour. We have asked for a new door, they are ignoring emails, and the… Read Full Review

Dbt07's Comment

Written on: 10/08/2021

Had similar problem and there is absolutely no customer service. Disgusting. Spent over 2k on a door and the whole frame needs repainting due to what looks like glue splodges all over it when the film was removed. Clearly a rushed job. Company refusing to replace. Will be taking it down a legal route and leaving as many reviews as possible online and on social media to ensure others don't make the same mistake of using this company. Hopefully if enough people do the same they might actually take some action to look after their customers in future.

“Never Again.”

Written on: 18/01/2019 by MireyaSelf (1 review written)

Purchased a 10yr g'tee woodgrain door just over 6 years ago. Spent the last 6 months trying to get a replacement after rosewood surface peeled away. Initially told would be replaced and forwarded photos and dimensions but despite numerous phone calls and a letter have had absolutely no response since. G'tee since reduced to 5 years so obviously a problem!!! Glossy brochures and claims mean nothing if not supported when something does go wrong so on your own head be it if you buy from Force8… Read Full Review

“Awful experience”

Written on: 28/03/2018 by Mohammedt400 (1 review written)

Having purchased a door from Force8 I can honestly say it has been the worst purchase experience i have ever encountered. They fail to resolve the issues we face to our satisfaction and today we have yet again been unable to enter our property due to a malfunctioning door. Today it has cost us £228 to have a locksmith be called out and replace our locks. Dreadful experience. Think very hard before approaching this company. … Read Full Review

“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
