    We had a new composite door fitted yesterday. The whole process was simple from start to finish, there was no hard sell but instead help on choosing the right options for us. Even over Christmas the door arrived quickly and they came to fit it almost the next working day. The fitters were quick efficient and really pleasant to deal with and it was all done well before lunch!

      A big thank you to Mrs H. from just outside of Saltash, Cornwall for leaving us this 10 ⭐️ review on Checkatrade after we installed for her this stunning Chartwell Green, Apeer Doors cottage style composite door, which replaced a PVCu wrapped timber core door that had rotted out.

    "Due to an unfortunate incident my front door got damaged and dented. The insurance agreed to pay for a new door. Went to realistic home improvements in saltash, had a very quick response, quickly came out to do a quote and the door was ordered. To be honest, I’ve never had a new door before eso had no idea what I was ordering and what was good or not. The door arrived, WOW!!! it is beautiful and amazing quality. The locks and door handles are incredible quality and the latest secure technology when I researched it all later after I got it. I was very impressed how they made sure I had the best quality items on the door when to be honest they could’ve put anything as I would never have known!! So they are very trustworthy, very happy to help, great after service, beautiful door and the fitters were very very friendly and were very considerate of my son who has autism who was having his breakfast in the kitchen when it was being fitted. Would definitely recommend and would use again".

    Excellent work carried out by the Realistic team. Everything done as expected and the site left clean and tidy at completion of work. We would definitely use this company again.

    We thought renewing our ageing wooden lean to conservatory would be a daunting task, but not with Realistic! Ryan visited at the outset (he knows his stuff) and we agreed on an Ultraframe with rosewood finish and ultra grey slate solid roof. We agreed a price and were kept informed of progress. Surveyor Dave attended and produced detailed plans. We knew there would be a fair wait before work could commence. The build team of Chris and Matt who have been working together for the past twenty years arrived; demolished the existing conservatory, ready to build the new Ultraframe on the existing walls. They were brilliant, there speed and quality of work, tidiness and approachability was second to none. Plasterer Brian made an excellent job of the interior ceiling. Chris and Matt also fitted a sliding door to our rear porch and promptly carried out a bit of snagging to the conservatory We are extremely pleased with the finished article and cannot fault the whole work team, including Jen and Dean in the office.

    Ryan and Jen at Realistic Home Improvements were really attentive throughout our project and provided clear information, updates and advice throughout. The finished windows and patio doors, all of which are unique with floating mullions and astragal bars, look great and were installed without fuss. We will have more windows and doors to replace in the future and would have no hesitation to repeat our custom with Realistic Home Improvements. Lovely to get a nice review but we wouldn't get them if it wasn't for our installers.

    Really happy with my new back door, the design, fixtures and no fuss manner in which it was ordered and fitted. I am a returning customer and have recommended Realistic to a work colleague already.

      Thank you for the review and your continued support Andrew. I hope to see you again soon.

  7. We chose Realistic Home Improvements for our windows and doors as from the offset they were reliable, friendly and honest. Ryan visited to offer advice and Dave completed a survey, pointing out any issues that could occur and ensuring the products would meet our requirements. Tim, Graham, Matt and Chris all worked so hard on fitting - they were clean, tidy, respectful and friendly. First rate! We love the transformation of our home. Highly recommended!

    Ryan Barrett visited my property and produced all the CADS whilst he was there and it all looked amazing. Ryan was very honest and confident that the small area I had would work and make the perfect dining room/sun lounge area. He was true to his word as the area has made an amazing difference and have been able to place my existing dining furniture perfectly. When the works started in October, 22 the groundworks team were amazing (Ben and Graham) so hardworking and conscious about the level of upheaval. Then Chris and Matt took over with the build and again amazing and dedicated workers. There was great continuity and the Plasterer, Brian, his work was amazing too and great comments were made by my visiting friends. I’m more than pleased with the extra room as it has made so much difference having that extra space which feels so much bigger than I thought it was going to be. So a huge thank you to Ryan and all his team for being amazing perfectionists as anything less was not acceptable in their eyes and if there was an issue that arose there was always a solution. Thank you.

    Many we take the opportunity to thank Realistic for an amazing professional service replacing our damaged conservatory roof and also all the glass in our SMART system bifold doors as well as repairing the alignment on both sets of bifolds. Ryan believed he could repair the structure and our faith in him was evident when Realistic teams arrived on time and straight to task. They were highly professional, courteous, conscientious and caring. It was obvious they take pride in their work when repairing our structure making it better than previously installed. The two teams from Realistic were friendly, respectful and wanted to do a first class job. May we highlight Chris and Matthew were outstanding and could not do enough to ensure the replacement went smoothly. We were also taken back by their work ethic and ensured everything was clean and tidy. It is not often you get a first class service but we feel we have from Realistic. We cannot recommend Realistic enough!
