Replacement and upgrade of two Velux windows.
 
Cost: £2721
 

"Smashing service and good kit from Neil and his team. It's good to find a builder/fitter who is happy to use email, was thorough and helpful throughout and did what he promised. The kit is good, the fitting even on a blustery day was professional and tidy, both lads were thorough and helpful, and they left the place tidier than they found it. Working around the Covid issues and especially regarding the sourcing of kit, they were superb."

We needed two old windows replaced and the addition of a new Velux at the rear of the roof on our outbuilding. These needed inbuilt black out blinds.

"I found Neil through Google search and he was a joy to deal with from the start- clear quotation, friendly manner and nothing was a problem. He and Darren came when they said they would, covered everything in sheets, were very tidy and in 2 and a half days the job was done. Everything was super tidy (better than before if I'm honest!) and the windows have made such a difference to the light and warmth inside. I have no hesitation in recommending them, they were professional, reliable and very efficient. We changed details of what we wanted at the last moment (literally as they were installing) and they went with it and didn't try and push the price up or create difficulties. I have to say one of the nicest teams of tradesmen I've dealt with in a very long time. I couldn't fault them in any way."

Hessian Cole replaced 3 old Velux Windows with 3 new ones, each to our specification.
 
Cost: £2400
 

"Hessian Cole were brilliant from start to finish. One of the windows that I ordered was difficult to obtain but, at my request, they came out and fitted the other 2 first and then popped back a couple of weeks later with the 3rd. They were courteous, tidy and clean and you couldn't tell that they'd been afterwards. They laid sheets down from the front door to each window and made a neat finish around each apeture ready to paint. They even spotted that the builders had not fitted enough roof tiles around the original Velux windows when the house was built and fitted some from their stock! I would recommend these guys without a doubt.

Installation of one Velux window in bathroom and servicing 9 other Velux windows
 
Cost: £2929
 

"Neil Hessian was extremely knowledgeable on Velux windows and we had recently moved into a house with 9 Velux windows which had been installed 25 years ago. Neil gave real assurance that the original installation was still in good condition and recommended that they were all serviced, and we wanted blackout blinds fitted. I also wanted a new Velux window installed in the main bathroom which was done and made a huge difference.

I would highly recommend Neil for any Velux window installation or servicing as you will be in good hands. I will be contacting him again if I need any additional work or servicing.
Thank you so much."

Installation of a Velux window, two light tunnels and the retrofit of solar powered automatic window opening mechanisms to two Velux windows.

" Installation was clean, quick and efficient. Good communications with the two fitters throughout.
All questions were answered clearly and there was adequate written instructions for the equipment
installed. Great care was taken to protect furnishings and fittings and floor coverings ensured the house was kept clean and tidy whilst work was ongoing.The final clear up was meticulous and all waste was removed and disposed of off site. Both fitters were obviously very experienced Velux installers and the quality of their work was excellent. We we're very satisfied with the end result and would recommend this company to anyone installing Velux products in future.

Replaced two old and decayed velux windows in my attic.
 
Cost: £2022
 

"From the very first contact Neil was extremely helpful. I was asked to send photos of the windows I needed replacing and the surrounding roof tiles so Neil could give me an accurate price. He told me the various options and their price, and put me in touch with the velux website to obtain fabric samples for the blinds. He and his colleague arrived when they said they would, were deficient and unobtrusive in carrying out the work, and left my loft room cleaner and tidier than they found it! All in all an excellent service."

Neil and his team inserted a Velux into our roof - they did any outstanding job.
 
Cost: £2000
 

"The overall service was excellent - we had a few delays which were not of HessianColes making but mistakes made by the manufacturer (wrong type of window etc etc) which meant we had a delay but that was not a problem to us. The fitting of the window was all over and done with in about 7 hours / they were very neat and tidy / NO loud radios / all very cool calm and collected. We would whole-heartedly recommend Neil and his team"

Replacement of two Velux Windows

"Our 20 year Velux windows needed to be replaced, so Neil and Darren arrived on the 22.11.19 to replace them with solar powered upvc windows.

No on site visit before the installation, i forward all the information they required by photo, and text.
I thought this company must know their job if they didn't want to do an on site quote. (I was proven correct.

Their standard of work and the care for our home was exceptional, this standard should be what all trades should aspire to.

They put dust sheets down and vacuumed after installation.
I have worked with trades people during my career, this company is 5star.
We have asked for a quote for further work from them."

Installation of velux skylight

"Outstanding service from beginning to end. We had a preliminary visit with honest advice and then a very fair quote arrived soon after. There was no pressure whatsoever. I had various questions during the run up to the work, all of which were replied to helpfully.

The work was carried out at the time specified, with courtesy and minimal disruption. They did over and beyond what they needed and left the work area spotless."
