The demand for high quality pvc-u products produced a vehicle for our expansion programme. Our professional approach and quality installations, combined with our highly motivated team's have earned Falcon a reputation for the highest of installation standards.
Falcon Windows Ltd. has now developed into a group of businesses that professionally service the home improvement market, such as replacement glass, windows and doors, conservatories, supplied or installed, the delivery of polycarbonate sheeting, glazing bars and accessories, and we also have a double glazing maintenance side as well. We also have a fascia and Soffit division where we supply and install fascia, soffits, barge boards, cladding and guttering.
It has always been the view of Falcon Windows that the installation is only as good as the team that produces it, from initial sales, surveying and processing to final installation.
All installers have been personally selected by the Managing Director of Falcon Windows Ltd. They immediately start an internal training programme that gives them the specialist skills and knowledge required not only to carry out a first class installation but also cover all areas of customer service and satisfaction.
Our teams are not employed on a quantity performance basis. We create no incentive for our installers to rush any installations, so quality finishing is always attained.
The installation is always finished by a detailed inspection by the senior fitter who will only be satisfied with the highest level of workmanship.
Many companies make the fatal mistake of assuming that once the installation is complete the responsibility to the customer has ended.
At Falcon Windows Ltd this could not be further from the truth. We acknowledge and value the power of recommendation from our existing customers. As a satisfied customer we hope that you will be recommending our services to your family and friends. If we were to drop our standards regarding our after sales department we realise that the support of our customers would be lost.
This is the reason we have implemented a fully structured system to deal with after care calls:
Our relationships with our customers and suppliers are based on a philosophy of respect and joint benefit. We endeavour to build on what we do well and innovate the ever-changing market place along with our customers' requirements ensuring our customers are getting the best the less. We know we are not the cheapest but you can be rest assured we give you the customer Value for Money!
We respect the skills and experience of all our staff and value their contribution within our business. TEAM = "Together everybody achieves more" this is very true at Falcon
We recognise that having pride in their work and ultimately enjoying the challenges that each job brings derived from commitment to do the best job possible for our customers, our strong leadership here at Falcon and achieving equality finish ensuring customer satisfaction.
Our goal is to work together to train, reward and develop our staff in ways that acknowledge performance and individual abilities.
We also realise you need the right people to do the right job, having the right tools is essential but above all, making sure a proper survey of all items to be installed is vital. There is a saying ''proper prior planning prevents poor performance' none more so than in double glazing
We recognise that our activities must acknowledge our responsibilities for the well-being and stability of the environment. We aim to support green issues by promoting energy efficient products and recycling as much as possible to reduce waste.
Home is important. So is saving energy and keeping your bills down. And it all starts with choosing the most energy efficient home improvement products. Almost half of all the UK's carbon dioxide emissions come from our buildings and homes. Windows play a huge role in this. According to the Energy Saving Trust, more than 20% of the heat lost from an average home occurs through the windows. The heat lost contributes half a tonne of CO2 per home to the atmosphere and increases fuel bills.
Of course all standard double glazing offers a degree of energy efficiency by trapping air between two panes of glass and creating an insulating barrier. But recent technological advancements mean next generation double glazing can now cut your fuel bills, reduce noise and eliminate condensation.
Installing double glazing can cut your heating bills by £110 a year as well as 620 kilograms of CO2 - that's 3 double Decker buses full of CO2 each year. If everyone in the UK that could, installed double glazing, it would save £660 million and 4.5 million tonnes of CO2. If all 26.5 million homes in the UK were to install Energy Saving Recommended windows, we'd save a further 12.8 million tonnes of CO2 per annum, the equivalent to removing 840,000 cars off the road
We all know washing machines and freezers are energy rated, but did you know windows are too? They are energy rated by the British Fenestration Ratings Council on a scale of A-G. Windows achieving a rating of C and above are endorsed by the Energy Saving Trust's Energy Saving Recommended (ESR) scheme and carry the EST's swing tag logo.
Choose energy rated windows that are fitted with Super Spacer and you'll significantly reduce heat loss from your home. So you'll only replace your windows once, save money on your heating bills - and seriously reduce your carbon footprint for many years to come.
Standard windows use a highly conductive metal spacer bar to hold the two panes of glass apart, which sucks heat from inside to the outside. Super Spacer introduces no-metal warm edge technology to windows, helping to deliver windows of the highest and most energy efficient standards. Windows using Super Spacer achieve the highest Window Energy Ratings.
Super Spacer is 950 times less conductive than traditional aluminium spacers and, as most of the heat loss through a window occurs at the edge of the unit, standard metal spacer bars act as a thermal energy drain allowing heat to escape from your home. Super Spacer blocks the escape route.
There are many other benefits of installing windows with Super Spacer. It reduces condensation by up to 70% virtually eliminating the potential breeding ground for bacteria, mould and dust mites that can be harmful to people with respiratory diseases. Super Spacer also reduces noise transmission by up to 2dB which helps you keep your home an oasis of calm, away from the noise of the outside world.
Super Spacer is equally at home in PVC-U, timber or aluminium frames so you can have energy efficient windows whatever the style of property.
Super Spacer is a no-metal, pre-desiccated, structural foam spacer system. Its award winning, patented Thermal Set Spacer (TSS) technology gives the ultimate in high performance spacer systems. Since it was first introduced in 1989, Super Spacer has become the dominant force in thermally efficient spacer systems. Super Spacer has 100% memory and allows for expansion and contraction, a major cause of breakdown in conventional sealed units. It has been subjected to rigorous testing worldwide and is proven to withstand temperatures from -15 degrees to 125 degrees, well beyond any temperatures we experience in the UK.
We have been glaziers in Ipswich and Suffolk since 1984 , I (Eamon Sheppard) set up a small glazing company after being made redundant from a local joiners. I used to manufacture their sealed units and supplied and Installed sealed units to builders and self build properties in Suffolk and North Essex.
We slowly moved into the installation of UPVC frames and UPVC Windows in Hadleigh Westfield Bramford and Capel St Mary, some of the many villages and towns within Suffolk and we soon became known within our area
Nowadays we try to keep local within a 15 mile radius it if at all possible but periodically go beyond this radius.
When you are offering a 10 year warranty it's much more cost effective to keep local
