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 We have a triangle window on the end of the conservatory and this was originally made at the wrong angle so we had to wait 2 weeks for another one to be made, that was annoying but when it was put in and the roof on we were able to move on.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

    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 were very impressed with the initial consultation, the computer programme showed us what the new room would look like, and we could add glass in the roof where we wanted. We are pleased that we opted for the larger panes of glass as it now provides us a better view of the garden in particularly, the bird table. The new room is usable all year round, which it wasn’t before. The finish product is to a high-quality professional standard, it’s very modern in comparison to the old one. The project wasn’t completely smooth sailing, there were issues along the way, but they have always come back and sorted them out. A couple of people have been around to look at the finished job, we are very happy to recommend.

    I know that we made the right decision as the room is just like we saw in the brochures, it’s exactly what we wanted. This is a proper room and doesn’t suffer with the problems that the old conservatory did, it no longer gets too hot or too cold and it’s much quieter especially in the rain. When it has been cold outside the new radiant heaters have kicked into effect and taken the chill off the room. The fitters were great with an exceptional eye for detail. My only minor complaint would be I would have preferred more communication and to have been told officially when the work was complete.

    We adore our new space it makes the house brighter and lighter. We sit in it all the time. The guys that came to install it were fantastic and very professional. The product is well made, and we love the colour. The room is used more than any other in the house. Our only gripe was the office communication. Not quite good enough. They did not keep us in the picture as much as we would have liked. Hence 4 stars.

    We live in a very old house and needed a small back door leading out into the garden. The salesman that came was very helpful, we chose a full-length glass door. It is well made and the fitters that came were very knowable. The service from start to finish has been very good.

    Had 3 quotes 2 local and Realistic was recommended by a friend as she had used them in the past and was very pleased. They were not the cheapest but the least pushy. They also got me a great deal on the scaffolding as my flat is on the 3rd floor. We had a slight problem with one of the windows it had the opening on the wrong side, but it was changed over without any fuss. The fitters were very knowable and didn’t take long to fit all 3 windows. We had a length of lead flashing under the cill which had been put there by the previous owners and it looked ugly, so I asked if the fitters would remove it and make good. They did a fantastic job. We are thinking about patio doors next and I wouldn’t hesitate to use Realistic again.
