    "From the point of original contact, right through to the final adjustments, 1st Homes have been excellent. Their salesman was polite, friendly and never pushy or overbearing. The fitters arrived bang on time. They did a fantastic job, and left the place spotless. The office staff are attentive, and very quick to respond to queries. The windows and door we had installed really are fantastic. And the best part about it all, is the fact it’s a local company with no need to deal with call centres. You get to speak to a person every time. We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend 1st Homes to anyone looking to upgrade. We will definitely be using them again in the future."

    Trader reply: "Thank you Mr Crooke for the amazing review. We do our very best to meet every customers expectation of a quality installation from start to finish. Clearly we have done that with your installation. We appreciate you taking the time to share your experience."
