As homeowners ourselves, we understand how crucial trust factors are to those of you contemplating a home improvement in the not so distant future. At the end of the day, your home is one of your most valuable assets, so you need to be 100% sure that it’s in safe hands before beginning anything.
Thanks to the internet, nowadays you have an abundance of information at your disposal. But what are the top trust signals you should be looking out for? Carry on reading to find out.
Home improvement product guarantees
The first thing you need to find out is whether the glazing company has effective deposit protection, warranties, guarantee insurance and Alternative Dispute Resolution cover in place. These are incredibly important, as they will protect you in the rare case of a disagreement or if the company ceases trading before the guarantee has expired.
As full members of The Glass and Glazing Federation (GGF), Stormclad home improvements are fully covered for every eventuality, including:
- Deposit protection
- Transferable warranties
- Alternative Dispute Resolution services
- GGFi warranty insurance

Marie Milne – 3 weeks ago – ✰ ✰ ✰ ✰ ✰
“Wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Stormclad, the service was excellent. From the initial sales rep, Denis, to Ben the installation technician. Ben was very polite, tidy hard-working, and hoovered up after he’d finished, and did a cracking job. The quality off the window is very good too, to say they were the cheapest quote we had…well worth the money 😊“
