With 40 years of experience and an excellent track record in terms of quality and customer service, Swish Windows & Doors is one of the UK’s manufacturing success stories.
Just like new windows, a beautiful new entranceway can have a significant effect on your Barnard Castle home, transforming its appearance and increasing its value – as well as enhancing its energy efficiency and security. Your front door is the first feature of your home that guests and visitors will see, so it’s always a good idea to make an outstanding first impression. For this reason there are a number of decisions to be made when choosing a replacement door.

It’s important that locks, handles and hinges – even frames and glazing – do their job and protect you and your family. All Swish windows and doors conform to PAS 24: 2012 which covers enhanced security performance requirements for doors and windows in Barnard Castle and in the UK. Look out for features like multi-point locking and egress hinges which allow a window to open to 90o for emergency escape.
You may want to consider products that have Secured By Design accreditation – this is an Association of Chief Police Officers’ initiative that aims to design out opportunities for crime in Barnard Castle and the rest of the UK. These products have extra security features built in and are available from some of our Swish Authorised Installers.

All of our window and door profiles are covered by a ten year guarantee against manufacturing defects. Your Barnard Castle installer will offer a guarantee on the installation. Make sure that this guarantee is “insurance-backed” and offered by a DTI approved insurer. This means that if the installer goes out of business – for any reason – you are still covered.
Most guarantees will cover defects in materials and workmanship, but always check the small print. If there is anything you’re not happy with, check it out before you sign on any dotted lines.
