The Glass and Glazing Federation has launched a new website to help consumers make informed decisions when choosing the right windows, doors and conservatories for their homes.
MyGlazing.com offers a resource where consumers can get independent up-to-date information, advice and inspiration to help improve their homes.
In addition to discussing the benefits of installing energy efficient glazing, MyGlazing offers an interactive energy efficiency calculator to help homeowners figure out how much they could save on energy bills by upgrading their windows and doors.
Nigel Rees, GGF Group Chief Executive commented: “It makes perfect sense for the GGF to introduce this online resource for homeowners.
For many years the Federation has run schemes and produced literature to help and guide consumers, this new site aims to promote our work and our Members’ professionalism when dealing with homeowners.”
MyGlazing also features advice on guarantees, choosing a reputable installer and how to ensure your project is secured via a free deposit protection scheme. Deposit protection scheme’s can safeguard up to 50% of contract value or £12,500.
The website also details how visitors can take advantage of a conciliation service offered to those who are unhappy with the work carried out on their property.
Brian Smith, GGF Director of Home Improvement commented: “With the GGF doing so much work with Members to protect and help homeowners, it is only appropriate to launch a dedicated website such as MyGlazing.com.
Not only will homeowners be able to find out how the GGF helps and protects them but they will also now have easy access to the best companies in the industry.”
Homeowners visiting the site will have access to a range of galleries showcasing examples of different styles of windows, doors, conservatories and other glass and glazing products and services.
Furthermore, its intuitive search function enables consumers to easily find a GGF Member company to supply and fit glass and glazing products.
James Lee, Head of GGF Group Marketing and Communications, said: “We felt it was important to communicate with homeowners on one consumer-friendly website.
MyGlazing.com aims to help consumers make the right choice for their home, so their selection and installation, be it for windows, doors, conservatories, or any other home improvement glass products, runs as smoothly as possible.”
Consumer facing GGF Members will be listed on the site’s directory and will feature their own profile page as well as being able to feature their promotions, news and case studies.
MyGlazing.com was previewed at the GGF Members Day 2015, on 1st September 2015 and launched on 3rd September 12.00pm.
