"Overall an excellent job - Knowledgeable and Helpful. Very mindful of not only doing a good job but aware that our ongoing renovations meant taking extra care.
All the team were extremely competent and considerate.

Neil from Hessian Cole was helpful before we even gave Hessian Cole the job.He understood what we needed to replace and explained the various options.
He was up front and honest about the (then) Velux manufacturing backlog - as our chosen Velux windows were of the "conservation" type.

There was a few months delay, due to Velux manufacturing timescales, but were kept updated.

When the installation date was confirmed, Hessian Cole continued to update us, and the Velux units installed on the agreed dates.

Follow-up has been good as we wanted to know if we could purchase some telescopic handles to make opening the high mounted units easier.

Our home is undergoing complete renovations. Of all the trades who have worked on our property Hessian Cole were amongst the best.

Professional, tidy and installed on-time, and in budget.

I have no issue recommending them."

Replacement of VELUX roof window in first-floor bathroom

"Neil and his team did a great job replacing our old bathroom roof window, completing the work in a very professional, timely, tidy and friendly manner, despite extremely hot weather this summer. We are very pleased with the new window. The bathroom seems much lighter and airier now.

Ordering with Neil's company was very straightforward. Following the instructions on his website, we sent all necessary information and photos to him by email. Neil got back to us promptly and after a couple of clarifications, we placed the order. Lead time was about 6 weeks. Within a few days after installation, Neil also supplied the warranties and the CERTASS certificate. Overall, everything was done very efficiently and professionally. We are very satisfied with the work.

Replacement of two old Velux windows with two new ones.
 
Cost: £2635
 

"My wife and I are very pleased with the work done for us by HessianCole. We were initially given good advice on the most suitable product; the installers arrived punctually when they said they would; they worked efficiently, completing the work in about three and a half hours; the standard of their workmanship appears to be good; they were tidy; and they were very friendly. The only fault we would find -- and this is relatively minor -- is that, during initial communications, we needed to chase up emails on two occasions. We would have no hesitation in using HessianCole again, and we would happily recommend them to others needing to install Velux products."

Customer Review
 
We had a Velux Cabrio window/balcony installed to replace an existing Velux window in our loft, and Velux window installed above our staircase.
 
Cost: £6197
 

"Neil and the team were excellent and professional throughout the process from the beginning at the site visit through to the installation. They were polite, courteous, and explained each step of the Velux install along the way.
Neil was able to explain the different options we had for the Velux windows for our house, and provided an accurate quotation for the works.
The quality of the installation and fit out is also fantastic.
As Neil and his team are highly in demand, the only criticism I would have is that communication from Neil was sporadic until the Velux window arrived at his warehouse. This is understandable however as their schedule is very busy.
Overall I would highly recommend Hessian Cole for any Velux installation."

Cost: £2845
 

"It was easy to get an initial quote with prices for options, but took a while Ö. to get the quote firmed up with the chosen options.

Once weíd agreed the price Neil got on and ordered the windows without a deposit and as soon as they were received by him, a date arranged

The 3 very professional guys turned up at the anticipated time and got straight on with the job. clearly knew what they were doing and completed the job swiftly (in a few hours) and left the site very clean and tidy.

Iím very happy with the service and quality of installation

removed and replaced 3 Velux windows
 
Cost: £3000
 

"Neil and team replaced our old velux windows, we chose them because they were recommended by our architect. He is a very busy man, and supply issues being what they are, it did take a little while to get hold of him. However, it was worth the wait, whole job done in a very professional manner, exactly as described. We had other work being carried out at the same time and Neil and the team were really flexible, which was extremely helpful.

Replace an existing Velux

"The Job was created on Velux's own site. Velux supplied the windows to Hessian Cole as their authorised installer in my area. All documentation invoicing etc was handled by Velux.

From the outset Hessian Cole communicated well and kept me updated re supply progress. They arranged an installation day to suit us almost immediately after they had received the window.

They arrived on the alloted day at the time agreed. Dust sheets were laid everywhere and they were very careful with the decoration around the window. They were finished in a few hours and throughout they were chearful, communicative and demonstrated the new Velux.

I would definitely recommend them to anyone."
