    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 We have a triangle window on the end of the conservatory and this was originally made at the wrong angle so we had to wait 2 weeks for another one to be made, that was annoying but when it was put in and the roof on we were able to move on.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.

    We brought from Realistic as we were impressed with the salesman, no hard sell. He knew what he was talking about. Also, Realistic arranged for us to visit another customer of theirs who had the same sort of roof we were looking at. That really did sell it to us. It was great to see what it would look all finished. We had the back wall plastered to match the roof which made the whole room look complete. We also had all the LED’s put-on dimmers plus wireless speakers in the roof. We are so pleased we have had it done now, it did take a bit longer than we expected, but the weather was awful at the time. The fitters worked hard all the time they were here, they were polite and respectful, a joy to have around. We have already recommended Realistic to friends and will continue to do so.

    We chose Realistic because they were local, and the price was competitive plus the product look good and sturdy. We chose grey on white windows with the same for the back door as we didn’t want it to be too dark inside, but we wanted a brightly coloured front door so yellow it was. We also had a roller shutter garage door. The guys that came to fit were very good at making sure that the carpets were always covered, and the mess was taken away daily. Everything we asked of them was carried out without complaint. The whole house looks great we are so pleased with the result. 5-star company.

    I found Realistic on the website, then looked at their website and had someone come out to give us a quote. We only wanted a roof at the beginning, but it was not much more to have new windows frames as well, so we did, and we are so pleased that we did as it all looks lovely and new. We went over to the showroom to have a look at how it would look when finished, that was good to get a picture of what we would be having. We did have to wait a bit due to the bad weather and they were running behind. Which couldn’t be helped, once it was started it didn’t take long to put up at all. The fitter worked really hard from as soon as they got here. It I had to find fault it would be that they left small bits on the grass after there clear up, which we found later. The new conservatory is so much quieter than before, I can’t even hear when it is raining, and it is warmer as well. We love to sit in there and watch the grandchildren playing in the garden.

    Both the builders and the installers are a credit to the company, they work hard and do good work. The builders were building the base on the hottest day of the year but they didn’t stop. Our neighbours who have seen it have said they have a bit of conservatory envy. We love the look of the room, it stands out and I often catch myself looking at it when I come back from walking the dog. We also had a door which we love, the colour especially, Paul and Kayden again did an excellent job especially scribing in the trim. Only real suggestion is we could have been better with communicating at times. More than happy to recommend Realistic 4/5. Very happy with the end result, as it’s excellent quality

    We wanted a tiled roof with a certain pitch and Realistic said they could do it and yes, they did. The whole room is over 9 meters long at the back of the house. Realistic were very accommodating during the build as we had to go away for a couple weeks right in the middle of the build, so everything was left securely and resumed the moment we got back. Everything we asked them to do, like put boards up over doors, clear the rubbish every day, look out for the cat was adhered to. The room was finished to a high standard, there was few bits I asked them to come and finish off which they did no problem at all. It is most used room in the house, everybody loves sitting out in it.

    We shopped around and everybody was offering a little something different with every quote but Realistic listened to what we wanted as it was a bit unusual. The conservatory had to sit over the fishpond, we wanted the fish to be able to come inside to be fed. New lintel in place the build could start. There arrived as planned with the new conservatory, we took one look and realized it was the wrong the colour, it did not match the windows of the house. We are avid environmentalists and could not see all that plastic being thrown away, so after some negotiation, compensation and compromise we went ahead, and we are so pleased that we did. The room is perfect, we love it. The fish come in and out all day long, I sit in there with dogs watching the birds and the glass roof makes it so much lighter in the kitchen. Everyone that comes to house comments on the room.
