    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.

      We are all pleased to hear that you are enjoying your new windows, as well as the door still. Thank you for taking the time to leave a review, and it is always a pleasure working for you.

    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 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 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.

    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.

    We had all of our doors and windows changed in January 2019. From start to finish the service we received from Realistic Home Improvements was excellent. Ryan was helpful, patient and provided us with plenty of choices to allow my wife and to come an informed decision concerning finish/look/style etc. The installation was planned and scheduled and the process of ordering and then installing went off without a hitch. The installation was carried out by Paul and Kadon, and their attitude and approach was outstanding. They worked well as a team and Paul’s attention to detail and finish is commendable. After inheriting draughty, poor quality, poorly fitted windows when we bought the house, it’s great to finally have windows that look great and are extremely well fitted. We took our time to decide on Realistic, but I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend the Realistic team to anyone. We have had a lot of great comments from neighbours and passers by and couldn’t be happier with the quality and finish of the doors and windows. A big thank you to all at Realistic, their after sales care has also been excellent.

    The fitters were very nice, we had total confidence in them, nothing was too much trouble. The products are good, and we have gained a much brighter room, and best still is that it no longer leaks. furthermore we are happy with the glazing design which Ryan advised us, the larger glass panels gives us unobstructed views of the garden. 5 star performance and will happily recommend to too others.

    We knew what type of roof we wanted and found only 2 people offering it in Plymouth. So, we had both people out to give quotes. One was a bit pushy telling us what we wanted and what would look good without us having our say. Ryan was not like that at all, he explained, listened, spend time with us drawing pictures on his computer. We then went over to Saltash to see the conservatories on display. That was great to visualize what ours would be like when finished. The fitters that came were good, very clean and worked well together. It didn’t seem to take very long to get it all up and looking good. The product is very well made, we love the grey colour it matches our windows. We use the new conservatory more than we use any other room in the house. It can be lovely and cool on hot summer days and toasty warm in the winter. We always eat out there when the grandchildren come. My husband loves to watch the birds. So so glad we had a conservatory fitted, wouldn’t be without it now.
