    Initially we were a bit worried that the room would be dark as we didn’t put any glass in the roof area, but it isn’t and we are now very glad that we didn’t. Having a solid roof has made a massive difference this summer as it never got too hot, it really is a proper room now and no longer a conservatory. We got a few quotes, some people frightened us as they just wanted to do a bodge job, where as Ryan filled us with confidence as he genuinely knew what he was talking about. The fitters were nice and did a good job. We have already recommend Realistic to other as we are so happy.

    Having completed my due diligence in obtaining 3 quotation I placed my order with Realistic, they were not the cheapest, in fact, if I remember correctly they were the most expensive but I felt their overall quality to be better, I liked Ryan’s straight forward approach, and the computer images really helped us see what the room could look like. Initially, I was looking to replace the polycarbonate roof only, but I am so pleased we replaced the lot, as we love it. The new room is in a different league to then original, with the glass roof proving to be much cooler over the summer period. Paul the installer was fantastic, I cannot speak highly enough of him as well as Dan the electrician. I can’t give 5* as there has been some remedial works that have had to take place after the installation, but then again they do come back to put things right.

    My advice to anyone thinking about replacing their glass roof to a solid one is to do it, it’s a no brainer. The room is probably used more than any other in the house, as it’s no longer too hot or too cold. Our only complaint is the plasterers had to come back and put right some of their work, but the rest is fine, we are definitely glad that we have had it done. Like most people we obtained 3 quotes, deciding on Realistic as the others didn’t fill us with much confidence, as well as my wife doing her online research and due diligence

    My experience with this company has been very good. Lock down prevented the job from starting in the Spring as planned, but Realistic took pains to keep me up to date with their situation, and once the work got under way, it proceeded apace. Two weeks from start to finish to re-roof a 48 sq m conservatory, as well as replacing two sets of bifold doors! Paul and Kayden, the installers, were helpful, friendly, constantly cheery chappies who undertook a tremendous amount of work on a daily basis, carried out to a high standard. The installation speed was further helped when three plasterers arrived and completed the boarding and skimming of the entire ceiling in a day. The grey tiled roof looks really authentic, down to a slightly ragged edge where it appears the rock has been split. People who see it assume it is traditional slate. Realistic deserve to go from strength to strength, and I unhesitatingly recommend them.

    If you are looking for quality home improvements with superb service then look no further, from day one when Ryan visited to measure up and give us a quote right the way through to the final installation of the new windows and roof by the fitting team we could not have asked for more. Even with the issues of COVID 19 once the lockdowns where relaxed the team worked around us all working from home, keeping everything tidy and clean – the photos do not do it justice we would be more than happy to recommend Realistic to anyone, you will not be disappointed!

    Just wanted to let you know how happy I am with my new windows. The insulation and noise reduction is incredible and I’m loving the increased light levels. The workmanship and care is fabulous and I’ve recommended your company to everyone who admires them. Last year you did the front door for me, this year the front windows. I’m saving now for the back windows.

    I called Ultra frame and they gave me Realistic name as the improved installers for our area. I looked them up and the rep came around. He was a nice chap no pressure selling, we had drawings, and the price was very competitive. We did not realize that the old poly carb roof blocked out so much light. This glass roof is so much better and being able to see the trees and sky is wonderful. The amount of light that now comes into the dining is amazing. Also, the heat from the conservatory travels all over the house. We are pleased that we chose to change the roof and pleased Realistic did it for us.

    We went online and chose 3 companies, I looked at all the reviews and had all 3 companies’ come out and see me. One I dismissed as he showed on interest in my design. Realistic designed exactly what I wanted, and we went ahead. I couldn’t find the design I wanted on the website because I wanted different to everybody else. It took longer than expected to finish as it rained constantly but the fitters were wonderful and worked through it. The builder got soaked most days, but the result is stunning, we love it. I wanted somewhere to sit and read and that’s what I got. It warm even when the sun is not shinning. We are looking at having more work on our property and I have already asked if Realistic will come and quote.

    We had researched what type of roof we wanted and Realistic came and priced it. Their quote was good. The fitters were great, it took 3 guys to lift the beams down the sides of the conservatory. Its very well made. We have a triangle window on the end of the conservatory and this was originally made at the wrong angle so we had to wait 2 weeks for another one to be made, that was annoying but when it was put in and the roof on we were able to move on. People comment on how well made this product is and how warm it is. We now use this space as a dinning room and it is great sitting out there at night with the LED’s on relaxing.

    We were very impressed with the CAD drawing that were produced for us. It was great to see what it would look like before we decided to go ahead. The roof looks superb. It is quieter, warmer and looks very smart. The guys that came to fit it were polite, very tidy and respected our home. We had an issue with the guttering just after it was finished, we called the office and the next day they sent 2 fitters over and they sorted the problem very quickly. We were very impressed. If we had known that you can buy glass that cleans itself and glass that is blue and keeps the heat in, we would have changed the roof sooner. We are looking forward to the summer and spending many evenings out there. We would use Realistic again without a shadow of a doubt and we would recommend them all day long. We now use the conservatory all the time were before it was too cold and never went in there.
