Frequently Asked Questions

What’s the Difference Between a Composite Door or a uPVC Door?

A Composite Door is a replacement for traditional timber doors, giving the appearance of traditional timber but created with modern materials to offer better quality. Unlike timber, you won’t be blighted by high-maintenance issues such as warping, peeling, cracking or twisting out of shape.
Our uPVC Door is made with our modern multi-chambered uPVC profile, giving you protection against weathering and security. Both are fitted with the latest security innovations to protect your home from modern burglary techniques.

Will Your Products Secure My Home?

Yes, they will. At SRJ Windows, we think security is very important when choosing either a window or door, which is why we fit the latest in secure technology within our customer’s homes. We offer products that themselves offer rigidity, giving a great level of security across the board. Your home will be well placed to cope with 21st-century burglary techniques.

I Don’t Want to Take Away the Character from My Property, How Can I Improve its Thermal Efficiency?

We appreciate that the cost of a new window can not always be the cheapest option, and if you have a period property, it may be difficult to replace the windows without taking away the character. That’s why we offer secondary glazing, a discreet internal window that goes alongside your existing single or double glazed window. This cost-effective solution provides insulation and soundproofing, making it ideal in conservation areas.

Do SRJ Replace Sash Windows on Older Homes?

Yes, we do. We have a few options on offer, with timber sash and case and uPVC sliding sash windows. If you have any old window or door, we can provide a replacement that can maintain the character of your property.

How Long Are My Products Guaranteed For?

All of our windows, doors, conservatories, sunrooms and entire product range are covered by our 10 year quality guarantee. In the unlikely event something goes wrong with your product in that time, you can have peace of mind knowing that SRJ are on hand to assist.

Will I Have to Spend Lots of My Time Maintaining My Double Glazing Products?

No, you won’t. Our double glazing range has been manufactured with the finest materials which should not suffer from any of the high-maintenance issues that have previously plagued old timber or steel products. Our double glazing won’t warp, bow, crack, twist, flake or rot out of shape. Instead, all you’ll need to do is just give them an occasional wipe with a damp cloth to maintain a good-as-new look.

How Do I Know if I Need a New Double Glazing Product?

This all depends on the age of the product and the quality of the workmanship. Signs can include misted units, warping, flaking, discolouring and more. You may also be struggling to open your product, the product may rattle, let in cold draughts and so on. Updating to a new profile ensures you’ll enjoy a more thermally efficient and secure home.

Can I Get Some Inspiration for My Project?

Yes, we are proud to promote our installations on our website through our project page.

How Do I Care For My Door?

Whether you have a composite or uPVC door, we recommend cleaning it weekly or at least monthly. We recommend using water and a neutral detergent or mild soap with a soft sponge or cloth.

External ironmongery will need to be cleaned regularly to avoid corrosion from the elements. Locks and moving parts will need to be oiled regularly, we recommend 2-4 times per year.

For the longevity of your door, please try to avoid using the following: abrasive cleaners, sponges or cloths, solvent based cleaners, water displacing spray, silicone spray or cleaning mechanically.
