Arranging Your Installation

At GFD Homes we only supply leading brands, and it’s true that a quality product deserves a quality installation. We offer a streamlined supply only service that means you pay less for the best products on the market.

As we offer a supply-only service, you may be considering your options for installation of the products. Below are some of the most popular options that you may consider:

Hire Your Own Tradesman

Many renovations or new build projects will involve tradesmen anyway, such as builders, joiners or window installers. If you already have qualified tradesmen on hand then it makes sense for them to install your products, as they will already be on-site and will likely offer a competitive rate.

If you don’t have tradesmen already on the project, there are plenty of website that let you search for qualified installers in your area. Many of these sites even let you post the details, so that the installers who are interested will contact you. Here are a few to consider if you want to go down this route:

Self Installation

Many of our customers are DIY-savvy and may choose to install the products themselves. This is a great way to save money on install costs, and for some customers who are ‘DIY nuts’ they actually enjoy this part of the process!

We provide all official installation guides for our products, so we give you all the necessary information to carry out a successful installation. We advise you to be vigilant when taking the measurements, and carefully go through all installation guides before placing your order to ensure you are confident in your ability to install. Incorrect installation is the single biggest cause of product faults

We also advise caution on larger, more complex items such as bi-folds, sliding patios and roof lanterns. We recommend these products are installed by qualified professionals due to their size and complexity.

Supplier Recommended Installers

For some larger projects or more complex items, it may be advisable to seek advice from the supplier (us) or the manufacturer directly. If you have a project that you feel may need expert advice and counsel, please contact us and we can assist you with your options.

Final Thoughts

Whichever path you decide on with regards to your installation, always ensure that you are confident whoever is installing the goods is qualified and able. Manufacturing defects rarely cause our products to fail or operate incorrectly. In fact, incorrect installation accounts for over 80% of the customer service tickets we receive. Appropriate installation is imperative to the products working correctly for years to come.
