James Lee, GGF Director of External Affairs, who started the site, comments: “ has been an incredible journey. Its creation came from GGF members who asked for a consumer-friendly website because they felt the GGF website was (and still is) a trade-focused website. So we set it up and followed a smart search engine optimisation strategy and clear digital marketing plan that included social media, national competitions and adding consumer-friendly features.” helps homeowners to calculate their fuel and money savings when replacing their windows and doors with its GGF Energy Savings Calculator.

The site is also home to the national completion Window with a View which boasts winning views from windows from high profile venues such as the Liverpool Museum of Art and Tower Bridge. 

The essence of the site though is its consumer advice with dozens of useful articles, hundreds of product images and over 300 company profiles. Advice for homeowners covers areas such as insurance, deposit protection, the legal issues around certification of replacement windows and doors, resolving disputes with companies, planning guidance and a very useful section Top Ten Tips before you buy.

James Lee concludes: “The site has many features, but one of its most useful is our fully searchable directory of over 300 consumer-facing companies. All are GGF Members and follow our approved Consumer Code of Practice, so consumers know that when they are using the directory, they will find the best installers in their area. Our plans for 2019 are three-fold, to increase the content on, get even more homeowners to the site and ultimately redirect them to GGF Member companies.”
