Making the most of the sunshine

If you’re thinking of investing in a new conservatory to make the most of the autumn and winter sunshine White Windows not only supply and fit conservatories but you can have a Guardian warm roof that will provide you with the perfect temperature throughout the year.

With an attractive tiled roof that is fully insulated and sound-proofed you’ll have all the benefits of a downstairs extension, as well as having a light and airy conservatory. Guardian roofs are now officially White Windows’ number one product on new conservatory installations and many people are buying them as replacement roofs.

The company specialises in conservatories, windows, doors, roof lanterns, car ports and Guardian warm roofs and is proud to be recognised for its first class service. Rising from the demise of the former White Windows that ceased trading after 35 years, White Windows Limited was set up in 2013 and has gone from strength to strength in the past four years.

New co-owners Matthew Foreman, John Drakeford and Jill Salero were all involved in the original business and bring their considerable experience to the company, resulting in an excellent reputation for providing a quality product at a great price.

Since starting afresh the new team has doubled the amount of employed fitters and now has a fleet of four signwritten vans on the road, and a major increase in the products they offer. The company supplies and fits uPVC and aluminium windows, doors and conservatories in a range of colours and styles. Replacement windows range from standard casement windows, to flush sash windows and upvc vertical sliders and they also do fascias, gutters, soffits and cladding in a range of colours.

Roof products include polycarbonate, climate glass and, of course, the incredibly popular Guardian warm roofs, car ports, verandas and canopies.

The highs and lows of decorating

With an illustrious list of former clients including Alan Sugar, whose superyacht he decorated, Andy has decorated properties from the Champs Elysees and Osborne House to the public toilets off Ryde High Street. Andy even worked on ‘Stargroves’, a £15m mansion owned by Rod Stewart.

“I prefer older properties, and have worked on a lot of Grade II listed buildings,” said Andy, but I’ll consider the smallest job. It can always lead to something bigger. Quotations are free and I always turn up on time!”

Back on the Island, after five years away, Andy McDowall set up his decorating business in memory of his mother who passed away in January this year. Based in Newport, Andy can work Islandwide and always checks that customers are happy with his work.
