Thanks to ‘Aluhome’ for first class (well Informed) advice with regard to the suitability of replacing our existing ... French doors with a Less obtrusive Aluminium framed Sliding Door system.What a difference! - the views into our garden now they are clear of window frame obstructions is delightful. This coupled with more natural light to the interior, is another bonus.The installation was carried out by fitters who clearly knew their trade and with the minimum of inconvenience to us.We are happy to report that the finished job from appearance, practicality and quality, exceeded our expectations.read more

Tim and his amazing team have been a godsend during our extension project. His advice and friendly chats together with... his highly experienced team of surveyors and fitters made the whole experience simple and hassle free. What he doesn’t know about his products isn’t worth knowing and we came away from the showroom feeling knowledgeable and that we’d made a great informed product choice. A big thank you to the whole team, and I promise once the garden's done and the kitchen's in we will update our photos which currently I’m almost embarrassed to upload as they don’t do the bifolds justice at all! We love them, the light is amazing, thanks again Tim & Team!read more

Based on our recent experiences, we are happy to recommend aluhome. During a visit to their office and display room Tim... was able to give a comprehensive description and assessment of all aspects of the door and windows we were thinking of installing (replacing 25 year old wood framed patio doors and windows). The timing of delivery and installation was as predicted. The cost was more competitive than similar offers. The installation team were on time, friendly, competent and efficient. And they left the patio area as clean as it was beforehand. And we are now very pleased with our new patio door&window. Best wishes, Rick and Moread more

We used AluHome to design and fit steel-look replacement french doors and windows at the back of our house in central... Stamford. Tim and the team at AluHome have been outstanding all the way through the process. They took time to understand our requirements and communication has been exceptional throughout. There were no delays, the doors look wonderful and the installation team were prompt, knowledgeable and paid a high level of attention of detail. There is no need to look elsewhere, we strongly recommend Tim and the team.read more

He invited us to the the showroom and gave us a thorough walk through of the products. The quality of the product is second to none. Aaron - in charge of fitting- worked closely with our builder in terms of planning and measuring as well as giving some on site advice and recommendations.The provision and installation was on time with no issues and very professional.The French Doors now form the focal point of our kitchen extension and have really made the project.We highly recommend Tim and Aluhome!read more

We visited Auhome to help choose doors for our new extension. We met Tim who was very helpful and extremely... knowledgeable and offered useful information to help me decide between sliders or bi folds. The showroom has a good choice of doors which again helped with our decision. I am delighted with the Sunflex sliders we chose, they completely make our room, great quality and fitted expertly by the team. Thank you Tim and all at Aluhome in Stamford. I would thoroughly recommend you.read more

A warm welcome at the showroom in Stamford which has a range of products on show. We were shown the options available... to us as we were looking to buy bifold doors. We were advised on what would suit us best and the various options available as regards colour, handle options etc. They were fitted very quickly and although we had a couple of issues they were dealt with quickly and efficiently by Tim. Very pleased with our doors and the service from Tim and his fitters. Would recommend.read more
