Installation of nine Velux windows in kitchen/breakfast room in a Listed Building in a Conservation Area.
 
Cost: £7179
 

"In every respect this was an excellent experience ....

- Easy, prompt and very helpful communications to decide the scope of the works
- Despite Planning Permission decision date unpredictable, anticipated likely date and set aside the time
-Arrived when promised, tidied up every day to allow use of the area, maintained weatherproof roof throughout construction, ensured security maintained and gave useful advice.
- Completed the works on time and to a very high standard.

They clearly know what they are doing but above all make it a real pleasure to have the work done.

Installation of Velux window in bathroom
 
Cost: £1300
 

"Quote was given on provision of photos and measurements emailed to the Neil, and installation date was agreed. After this and until the installation date, it was extremely difficult to get hold of Neil via phone and email to arrange a visit to confirm the space was suitable for a Velux window (construction of roof above etc). When I did get a response and a visit date was agreed, they didn't turn up. This happened approx 5 times and was very frustrating. As the installation date neared, there was still no response from the company. They eventually came a few days before which meant a bit of a last minute rush choosing the finish/ ordering the window. However, they did go ahead with installation on the originally agreed date and the work was done to a high standard. The site was kept tidy, and they cleaned up well afterwards."

Fitting 2 14" sun pipes - one in pitched roof and one flat roof in bedroom corridor
 
Cost: £1476
 

"We had used Hessian Cole previously to fit sun pipes to our property in a bathroom and dining space and were pleased with the end result. We therefore decided to introduce more light into a very gloomy bedroom corridor by fitting 2 more Velux sun pipes and contacted Hessian Cole again to complete the work. The work was arranged in advance and Neil and Darren arrived on the due date. Although we had hoped to fit 2 sun pipes, there was some doubt about whether one would fit in the space. However, Neil was happy to order the pipe and bring it along just in case (he would have to return to supplier if it didn't fit which he was happy to do). As it turned out there were no problems and the 2nd pipe just fitted.

The work was completed in a single day with minimum fuss. Both Neil and Darren were friendly and courteous and there was minimum mess. The site was left clean and tidy when they finished.

We are delighted with the result. The 2 pipes have transformed the corridor. The only problem now is that we keep thinking we have left the lights on!!

Installation of a Velux window on kitchen roof top followed by ceiling insulation and replastering
 
Cost: £2202
 

"Neil and his team have done a fantastic job installing a velux window on the flat roof of our kitchen extension. The work was done quickly and to a very high standard. They were very friendly and very tidy as well. Competitive pricing and they provided us with some very good general advices too on other work we are planning to do in our house. I would very strongly recommend them to anyone having a Velux installed."

Customer Review
 
We had a Velux window fitted in our bathroom and two light tunnels installed in our hallway, which was very dark.
 
Cost: £3240
 

"We originally contacted another Velux installer who thought that we were too far away from their normal working area. They recommended HessianCole and we subsequently contacted Neil who came to do a quotation. The price was very competitive and cheaper than we thought that it was going to be, so we commissioned HessianCole to do the work.
Neild and Darren arrived on time and spent two days installing the Velux and two light tunnels. The work was done with minimal disruption and they tidied up after they had finished each day.
We are highly delighted with the effect of having so much more light in our bathroom and hallway, and would recommend HessianCole to anybody that is thinking of having similar work done. They are really nice, polite people to do business with and I can't fault the level of workmanship."

Two velux windows fitted into garage roof - sourcing of all equipment and materials. Advice and support on most appropriate sizing.

"Fantastic service from start to finish. Followed up promptly on a web enquiry and was very helpful. Provided advice on the best way to approach the task we were looking at. Provided totally transparent and fair pricing. This included options to upgrade which really helped us to tailor exactly what we wanted. It was then really easy to agree a date. No payment requests were made until we were happy with the work. Whilst on site urge team were very polite, worked quickly and kept everything immaculate. Really happy and could not recommend more. Thanks!"

Velux fitted with Solar power remote operation and blind. Works included plastering.
 
Cost: £1800
 

"First class service from start to finish. Job was completed efficiently and professionally. No mess and delighted with the finished product. More often that not we find tradesmen don't do what they say, make mess and take far too long. This was just not the case with Hessian Cole. Great job. They also did the plastering which other Velux fitters don't. Would highly recommend."
