Do not touch this firm with a barge pole! Materials doors, windows etc never delivered but charged for including bits of wood they took out of a skip, had to have most of their work redone.

Am I right in saying that Sese only do aluminium, and not pvc?
Fogama offer both.

Has anyone replaced wooden windows with double glazed pic or aluminium? Is it a big job? is it much work to cut out for the blinds?

If you get Sese (or whoever) out for a quote, he'll measure your apertures and quote for whatever type you want.  More work to cut out for external roller shutters because probably new lintels required. BUT, do you really need shutters ?

What sizes are the apertures? What's the wall made of and what're the current lintels made of?
And,crucially,do you diy at all?
If any of that is foreign to you find a trustworthy workman to do it. Beware cowboys with no lintels.
It happens.

Have had this done several times for clients and for my own windows. Price depends on quality. There are cheap windows available from Leroy Merlin etc. if you are into diy.

Personally I use a local company who make the windows to measure. I had anti-theft glass fitted so I could get rid of all the metal bars - 2 layers of glass with a plastic film between on the outside pane and the same on the inside. You can hit it with a hammer and the hammer will bounce off - believe me I tried it - impressive, 10 times in succession before one of the panes of glass cracked! But you won't find this in Leroy Merlin.

The 'unbreakable' glass is amazing and you do find yourself gingerly giving it a whack if you have a sample to go at before becoming a convert and giving it a good clobber to no effect.  However the next weak link is the locking system so make sure that is engineered to the required standard if you feel burglary will be a problem but don't want to fit metal bars.  If you are in a secluded part of the countryside it has been known for the thieves to simply attach the bars to their car and pull them clean out of their fixings!

Hi, I used Fogama in Jesus. Call Olivia 646789752 if you want to go and see their windows. Their industrial unit is just outside Roquetes, heading for Els Reguers, on the right hand side.

We used Fogama a fortnight ago to replace a door on our terrace Rita and I found no reason not to recommend them, although I remember seeing someone on the Forum doing just that.  Ecellent service from first talking to Olivia and then onwards.  Arrived on time and did a good job to our minds.
