Ford PVCu Windows

FAQ's

Are your windows & doors covered by a warranty?
Yes, we have a very comprehensive warranty. A full copy of our warranty is available from our office – please contact us if you have any further questions. Our PVCu frame work is covered for cracking, warping and discolouration for a period of 10 years. Our sealed units are covered from failure of the seal for a period of 10 years and our fittings (handles, locks and hinges ) are covered for a period of 2 years from date of initial use. Please bear in mind that our warranty has changed recently so please contact our Customer Care department if you do not have a copy of your warranty certificate.

Our warranty is subject to terms and conditions so please call our Customer Care team on 0114 261 7519 to discuss further.
What maintenance do my Ford Windows, doors and conservatories require?
Cleaning Glass and glazing: Warm soapy water or a quality glass cleaner is adequate to remove dirt from all variations of glass sealed units. To prevent scratching of the units, the use of a soft cloth is recommended.

Cleaning PVCu frames: A regular clean with a mild non-abrasive detergent solution will keep your frames in tip top condition. For stubborn dirt and marks, use a suitable cream cleaner. Never use abrasive/steam cleaners.

We have a range of cleaners available to purchase, please contact us about our range.
My French doors will not lock?
A simple adjustment is often all that is needed. New build property owners should contact their builder (if you are still covered by your builders warranty) to arrange for an engineer to visit if necessary.

If you are outside your warranty period then please contact us.
I have condensation on an outer pane of my sealed unit; does this mean it is defective?
No, condensation on an outer pane of a sealed unit is a gas or vapour changing into a liquid and is perfectly normal. Please contact us if you have any concerns. If the temperature of an object ( e.g metal, glass ) falls below what is known as the ‘Dew Point ’ temperature, water vapour from the atmosphere condenses into water droplets on its surface.

If you have any further questions, please contact us.
Can I have a cat flap/extractor fan fitted in my sealed unit?
Unfortunately we are unable to supply units that contain cat flaps or extractor fans.
