CHOOSING NEW WINDOWS & DOORS
HOW DO I GET A QUOTE?
If you are planning a New Build and have an Architect, they will be able to provide us with a copy of the drawings of your project, which can be sent to us via email or post.
Renovating Your Home
If you are renovating or refurbishing an existing house, either your Architect can provide us with drawings or we can liaise directly with your Builder, who should be able to give us details of your window and door sizes & designs, so we can give you a Quotation.
Replacing Your Windows & Doors
If you are looking for replacement windows & doors for your house and don’t have an Architect or Builder, then Carlson can arrange for a representative to visit your home, to survey your window & door designs & dimensions, to prepare a Quotation.
However, if you would like to speed up the process of obtaining a Quotation and don’t have drawings you could roughly measure the window & door sizes yourself and send us the details via email or post.
HOW SOON CAN I GET MY WINDOWS / DOORS?
We offer reliable window & door delivery for most of our product range. Our dependable lead times are made possible by our unique assembly process. This has been specifically designed to accelerate manufacturing time to ensure our delivery schedules are met.
In general, window & door deliveries take approx. 6-8 weeks from when Order Confirmation Sign-Off has been received by Carlson.
However, in the current climate with Covid-19, pent-up consumer demand and temporary Construction Industry closures, we unfortunately cannot guarantee these lead times. Therefore, we would ask you to discuss with us your delivery requirements, so that we can give you the latest up to date information.
What do I need to know about lead times?
The most important thing to understand about lead times is that an order can only go into production once you have signed off on all designs, details & dimensions. We want your order to be perfect!
Each window & door is custom made and our manufacturing facility needs every detail to be agreed before your order can be placed into production.
- Our Estimators provide comprehensive, clear and concise Quotations
- Our Quotation will include all manufacturing designs, details & dimensions, to include 1:20 scale drawings for each individual window & door. This ensures the correct interpretation and the smooth running of your project, at every stage
