“Everything went according to plan, from quotation to fitting and I am very happy with the whole installation.”
Mr Smith, The Park, June 2007
We would like to thank you and your team for the kind and continued attention shown in the installation of windows and doors in our home. We are extremely satisfied with the professionalism shown by all of your team at Acorn Windows and the excellence and quality of the product installed. In fact several passers-by have made enquiries as to who installed them and we have had no hesitation in passing on your contact details
As you may have realised during installation, we have a large old house which hitherto has tended to be on the ‘cool’ side even when the central heating is on. However, since the installation we have noticed a considerable change in warmth in our home, so not only are they aesthetically pleasing they’re also helping to keep us warm in the coming winter months!
We have pleasure in enclosing a cheque in full settlement and thank you all once again for a great job well done!
Jim & Karen Kennedy, Sherwood, Nottingham
It is just over 2 weeks since our windows were fitted and we would like to write and thank all of you at Acorn for such a good job. The windows, doors and soffits etc. are a perfect fit and were installed very professionally and quickly by Paul and his assistant, Paul. Of course, your original measurements and Steve’s more precise ones were definitely contributory to this excellent job and we will have no hesitation in asking Acorn to install the windows at the back of the house - next year, if all goes to plan - and we would be very pleased if both Pauls could be assigned to this job.
They were polite, considerate and worked hard and we would recommend you to anyone needing new windows and doors. Thank you to Alan Highet for the 10 Year Guarantee Certificate and for sending us the Independent Warranty forms which we will post tomorrow. We hope we won’t have to make use of the guarantee but it is reassuring to have, should any problem arise.
Once again, many thanks to all of you at Acorn for our beautiful new windows which are a great improvement on the previous wooden frames, both from the security and aesthetic angle. We hope that Paul is getting over his operation - please pass on our best wishes to him for a speedy recovery. We look forward to contacting you with a view to having the back windows and soffits replaced some time next year.
With best wishes, Lauretta & Paul Hobson
Having just had a conservatory supplied and fitted by your company, I am writing to express my delight in the manner in which the contract was carried out. The information provided at the enquiry stage was more than adequate, the quotation was immediate and concise, the sell was not ‘hard’, the surveyor was most pleasant and informative.
You installation team arrived on time, as promised, and carried out their works in a clean, efficient and helpful way, clearing up all mess as they progressed.
I have been involved in the building industry for almost 40 years, designing and constructing units in value up to several million pounds, and your team would stand equal or better than any I have come across in that time.
Thank you for a most pleasant service and experience.
M.G.Upton, Wollaton Park, Nottingham
Thank you for installing our conservatory. Please find enclosed our payment in full. We are impressed with the quality of the work carried out, and with the friendliness of your staff. We would not hesitate to recommend Acorn Windows in the future.
Thank you, yours sincerely,
Mr & Mrs Simons - Borrowdale Drive, Long Eaton
Dear Mr Hibbert,
Now that the replacement of our soffits and facias, also the construction of our new conservatory, is complete I feel it only right that I should write and thank you for the excellent projects. My wife and I are very pleased with everything you have done for us.
Most importantly, all your employees were courteous, friendly (especially when plied with copious amounts of tea/coffee) and cooperative. Being a retired engineer with some knowledge of the building industry, I feel happy to say that the quality of all their work easily meets my very high standards and that it was a pleasure having them working for me.
Tony Wardle - Brookview Drive, Keyworth
I am extremely pleased with the work carried out last week; your fitters in particular deserve special praise for moving furniture, taking down and replacing the curtains and cleaning up after themselves. I was pleasantly surprised at how little disruption there was and delighted with the end result; many thanks.
I would have no hesitation in recommending your company and excellent standard of customer care.
Mary Brittain - South Road, Westbridgford
Dear Mr James Hibbert,
Thank you very much for the new window which was installed on Thursday 15th April. I am highly satisfied with it. I found the workman kind and courteous, they executed the job as quietly as they could under the circumstances; they were thorough in cleaning up and removing all the debris. I would have no hesitation in recommending Acorn Windows to anyone. Your workforce are a credit to your firm. Please extend my thanks to the two gentlemen who came to do the work.
Again many thanks, yours sincerely,
Mrs Sheila Monk - Marie Gardens, Hucknall
I have been meaning to write to you for some time to congratulate you and your team of professionals for the excellent installation of Windows and Doors made at my property.
As an Engineer and a Perfectionist I pay very close attention to both quality and detail and from my initial meeting with you right the way through to the final commissioning of the Windows and Doors the job was nothing more than excellent.
It is unusual in this day and age to come across a company that is not pressurising, offers a first rate quality product but more importantly, at a price that is realistically affordable to almost anyone.
Your staff are a total credit to your company from your Showroom Management right the way through to your Installation Engineers which, I might add are real craftsmen. There was also a need to replace a damaged Door Handle owing to a manufacturing fault and I was most impressed that your Service Engineer Terry Stewart, was prepared to come out and replace it on a Sunday afternoon to fit around my busy working schedule.
As you know I am also Chairman of a Business Association in Nottingham that represents over 2000 businesses which results in approximate audience of 80,000 people. My organisations principal objective is to promote local business to business networking and I shall have absolutely no hesitation whatsoever in recommending your company to members.
Please would you be so kind as to pass on my comments to your staff and I look forward to discussing the practicability of another project I have for your Company based in Central Nottingham.

It is now some 3 months since Acorn finished work (conservatory, windows and facias) at our house, and we both feel that we should write to let you know how pleased we are with the finished product.
The time since completion to now has enabled us the opportunity both to enjoy and inspect fully the end result. We are particularly delighted with the conservatory which is exactly what we were hoping for and which has given us a whole new aspect from house to garden.
Although late in the day a special note of appreciation should be given to Alvyn and Mike for their application to work, their curteousy and the fact that they were meticulous in cleaning up all debris once they had finished for the day.
The most difficult part for us was trying to decide upon a company which would provide us with a good quality product, at a reasonable price. We are pleased that we finally decided to have the work carried out by Acorn.
Frank and Anne Snayde - Lime Close,
Radcliffe on Trent
To all the Staff at Acorn Window’s,
I would like to say a big Thankyou for all the help with the daunting task of choosing New windows. We are very pleased with the finished results especially the Bow Window’ It has made the lounge seem much wider. I was very pleased with the fitters Steve and Drew, it was a pleasure to have them working here. I would also like to thank Malcolm and Jeff for their help, and all the backroom staff whom we never see. l’ve enclosed a photo which I have taken and you can use it if you would like to display it in the office.

Summerwood Lane, Clifton
Dear Mr. Hibbert,
I have recently had a conservatory supplied and fitted by your firm and am writing to say how delighted I have been with the service provided by your staff. On visiting your showroom I was dealt with in a most professional manner. Mr. Highet and Nigel kept me fully informed at all times and were most helpful. I was not pressurised and felt able to contact Acorn with the slightest query. The conservatory was started and finished on the pre-arranged dates and I was most impressed by your workforce - all in all an excellent service. I feel that Bert and Dave should have a special mention as they represented your firm admirably.
Thank you again for a wonderful service. I will certainly recommend you to my friends.
C. Murray - Crawford Close, Wollaton
What a start to a New Year, to be able to write a laudatory letter to a Nottingham company in appreciation of a job well done!
Through the dedicated efforts of your team, my beautiful new conservatory was completed in time for Christmas, enabling me to host Christmas Day within the newest part of my home for a dozen guests. Their glowing compliments simply echoed my own personal feelings of gratitude and complete satisfaction for an outstanding project within an unusual setting.
My one hundred and fifty year old stone barn certainly proved a difficult backdrop on which to add a Victorian P-shaped conservatory, but the Acorn Windows team rose to the challenge and surpassed my highest expectations.
The result is truly fabulous!
All members of the team deserve a mention for their contribution, from Alan who drew up the original design and Tony who made subtle but significant improvements to the plans, to Pete and Steve who managed to work within the extremely difficult constraints of non-aligned stone walls to complete the base perfectly and go on to build the mini walls with irregular sized Ancaster stone. Glynn and Dave proved their outstanding craftsmanship during the erection of the conservatory framework - again working within the constraints of extremely irregular stonework on all sides - and accomplishing a superb finish. The input by Paul and Matt who painstakingly installed the electrics (stone walls do not make the easiest of settings for wall lights) and Gary who laid the underfloor heating and ceramic tiles perfectly, simply rounded off the highest professional quality of work from all concerned. What a team! Please pass on my sincere gratitude and compliments to each and every one of them.
If I can be of help in the future by showing potential clients the standard of workmanship attained by the Acorn team, please do not hesitate to contact me. In the meantime, I enclose my cheque in final payment for the work carried out, and wish everyone at Acorn Windows a very successful (and busy!) New Year. Many thanks to you too, James, for overseeing the whole project.
Yours very sincerely,
Paddy Pearce (Mrs) - Grantham Road, Bottesford
