Good Quality with 10 year guarantee

The sales talk can take hours.

I don't like the way double glazing is sold, and have no time to listen to salesmen trying desparately to earn their commission. I bought a window for my lounge 10 years ago from this company and had no problems at all, so they were the obvious choice when I wanted the rest of the windows...

We have been thinking for a while about getting new double glazing just at the front of our house. As luck would have it someone from Zenith knocked on the door saying they were looking for "show homes" in the area - homes they put double glazing in basically at cost price and in return they use...

“A window experience”

published 28/04/2004

exellent product good installation

expensive, iffy salesman

Our experience with Zenith windows began as many do with a canvasser ringing the doorbell. Now it must be said that we did indeed need new windows as our old wooden framed windows were well past their sell by date and if the wind was in the right direction the curtains would blow gently in the...

Good Quality product

Everything else.

I read with interest some of the comments on the forum regarding this company. We thought originally that we had just had a bad experience but obviously we are not the only ones ! We had doors and windows fitted last year and are quite pleased with the overall look, but take a closer look and not...

“Taken to court”

Good quality product and generally good service.

My wife and I were recently taken to court by Zenith because we held back part of our payment for a window they measured incorrectly. We won the case, and I'm not posting this review to complain about them - merely to warn potential customers about the discrepancy that caused us to end up in...

“TOTAL CON”

published 23/08/2005

NONE

Dishonesty from start, lies and pushy salesmen

We called Zenith Staybrite for a conservatory quote which was supposed to be "NO obligation" according to Zenith's own words. Unfortunately, the real experience has demonstrated otherwise. First of all, the salesman arrived half an hour late with no apology or explanation. He then spent about 15...

High pressure sales technique

Staybrite knocked on my door and started trying to pull my already double glazed windows to bits. I stopped them short and invited them to give us a quote for roofline and doors only, so they arranged an appointment. Before the appointment(s) they telephoned and gave OH a full sales pitch over...

“Want to buy Zenith ?”

Nice looking windows etc.

Really bad sales pitch, before during and after. ...

I'm a fairly recent customer of this company, and I have to agree with all those comments above and below regarding 2 points. First that the product is of a reasonable quality although can be very expensive, but second, that the customer experience and after-sales support is less than desirable...

A guy from Zenith Staybrite knocked at the door and offered me a free quote to replace the facia's on my house, valid for 2 years. I agreed a 7pm appointment (because a salesman was just around the corner in the next street) after which he left. I then logged onto the internet and found Ciao by...

high price, terrible sales pitch

I was looking for a roofing contractor to install a synthetic rubber EPDM (ethylene polypropylene diene monomer) membrane on my porch and garage roofs. This material works really well on flat roofs. A Google search picked up Zenith Staybright so I called them and asked for a quote. What a mistake...

Here's our story. The example window shown to us was of good quality and looked more finished off than others we had seen, although the handle was loose but that was apparently because he had caught it whilst getting it out of the boot of his Porsche which wasn't his, a friend had lent it to him...
