Frequently Asked Questions

Window Repair Cumbria fills a growing gap in the window and door industry. While there are many double glazing companies that are keen to sell and install new windows and doors, few are willing to do the remedial calls when parts fail, or undertake essential maintenance to prevent failure.

At Window Repair Cumbria you do not have to deal with a national call centre or salesmen, who are more interested in their commission than your products. You will speak with the engineer, who will investigate your repair, provide you with a quotation, source the required parts and carry out the repair. There are little overheads and you do not have to pay for expensive TV or newspaper marketing campaigns in your bill.

Below are answers to some of the most frequently asked questions about our company.

Our quotations are free and there is no obligation for you to order the work. It may be possible to give you an estimate when you call, but in most cases we need to inspect the problem before we can give you a quotation.


Our van is stocked with the most common replacement parts, and we are able to repair many problems on our first visit. However, if we need to order any parts, we will provide them for you as quickly as possible from our network of suppliers.

Our replacement glass units are manufactured in Cumbria, and where possible we will try to use local suppliers to support the economy in Cumbria.

VAT is due on all our work and parts. VAT is a legal requirement, and we also have to pay VAT on all replacement parts or glass units. We are a serious business who will not employ any tricks to avoid taxes.


Unless otherwise agreed upon quotation, full payment is required on completion of the work. Title or ownership of the goods will pass to the customer only after full payment has been received. We accept payment in cash or cheque.
