PRESTON COUPLE IN BIGWINDOWWIN


Barney and Carolyn Colley from Bretherton near Preston will be more comfortable thanks to their new, shiny, energy efficient windows. And they will also be nearly £7,000 better off than they thought they would be this Christmas after the firm that made the glass handed back a cheque for the cost!


The Colleys updated their home with windows and doors installed


by local firm The Window Men, using a special glass called Planitherm that is claimed to be the most energy efficient you can buy. The Colleys then filled in a leaflet that promised that one customer would win back the price of the whole installation and their name was drawn.


The prize is part of a national promotion organized by Yorkshire-


based Saint-Gobain Glass, makers of the Planitherm glass installed in the Colleys home. The company is running a big TV and press advertising campaign that is advising homeowners of the huge savings they can make by installing Planitherm glass in their replacement windows.


Merseyside-based PLANITHERM Installer member The Window Men run by pals Simon Jones and Brian Heyes installed 15 windows and 2 stable doors in the Colley’s home, and then prompted them to send off the completed competition form.


“Brian and I have about 50 years window fitting experience between


us,” Simon explained. “Both of us worked together for many years for a national company before setting up on our own in 2002. Homeowners have been entering the competition in their hundreds, in the hope that they will win back the value of their window installation. “I’m sure Mr and Mrs Colley forgot about the competition once the form was posted,” Simon said. “Yet they were delighted when I called them with the good news, although they tried to play it cool; I felt a bit like a gameshow host!”


Sustainable development is an issue that Saint-Gobain Glass takes


very seriously and sustainability runs through the veins of “The Window Men“. Simon explained that all windows that they replace are dismantled for recycling, and they have plans to expand the business into photovoltaics. “I’m a bit of an eco-warrior on the quiet,” Simon explained, “and being ‘green’ is good for our brand.”
