Which? Trusted Trader
Which? have been testing products for the past 60 years, providing consumers with confidence in the purchases that they make. Now Which? are running a scheme to assess and endorse local tradesmen and tradeswomen called Which? Trusted Traders. The programme is designed to evaluate all aspects of the businesses to recognise good traders and help customers find reputable traders.
To achieve an endorsement from Which? businesses are thoroughly checked to ensure they offer the high standards of products, craftsmanship and service set by the scheme. The rigorous assessment begins with looking at the credit report, customer satisfaction and business procedures. If these initial assessments are successfully passed Which? will go on to conduct face to face interviews, an assessment of the quality of workmanship and installation and a feedback report.
We take great pride in the endorsement of the Which? Trusted Trader scheme having lived up to the stringent standards set. As a Which? Trusted Trader, you can have confidence in the products and service that we offer to all of our customers. Enjoy the peace of mind that comes with knowing that you’ve chosen a reputable company and if, in the unlikely event that something goes wrong, there is an independent Alternative Dispute Resolution service, Dispute Resolution Ombudsman, on hand to help.
The exceptional standards of our workmanship, products and service are reflected in our customer review rating of 5/5. This highlights the passion and dedication that we invest in every project.
Approved Ultra Installer
Our incredible conservatory roofs come from leading roof system manufacturer, Ultraframe, and we are part of the Ultra Installer Scheme. This scheme allows customers to quickly find approved installers for their cutting edge conservatory roofs. Abbey Windows is proud to have achieved the status of an Ultra Installer.
Ultraframe roofs provide outstanding durability, structural integrity, thermal performance, ventilation and style. The impeccably high standards of the Ultraframe conservatory roof system are echoed in the stringent criteria needed to become an official approved Ultra Installer.
The materials used by Ultraframe to produce their cutting edge conservatory roof systems are of the highest quality. Enabling homeowners to enjoy the many benefits provided by the ingenious design. That’s why only installers of a similar calibre can become a Ultra Installer.
Our Local Community
We’re committed to helping our local community in Reading in any way we can. That’s why in 2022 we were proud to start a fundraising drive to raise money for life-saving defibrillators for nearby schools and community centres. Our very own fundraising hero Layla ran one hundred miles in one month to raise enough for several defibrillators for local schools in and around Reading.
Layla had not long completed a similar challenge for the Young People vs Cancer Charity. After her successes then and inspired by the generosity of the local community, she was keen to do it all over again!
This type of equipment really can make all the difference when it comes to saving a life, so it’s imperative that there are as many as possible within easy reach. Our recent running challenge made all of us at Abbey Windows proud to make a real difference to the local community, and while we hope the defibrillators never need to be used, they might just save a life. Keep an eye out for any other campaigns that we’re ‘running’ in future!

Supporting British Products
Abbey are committed to British jobs with over 95% of the products we offer being made in Britain.
There are numerous Trade Associations that offer services, advice and varying degrees of governing to the Double Glazing Industry. These are the associations to which Abbey hold membership. Whilst there are other Associations, Abbey do not rate all as providing value for money or adequate consumer protection.
