    B&Q PVC windows and doors - any good? 7th Oct 08 at 12:32 PM
    I need a new half-glazed back door, and a new window about 1m square, give or take.

    Having almost fallen off my chair at the prices Iíve found online, I was in B&Q and found the perfect-looking back door for about £150, and window for £80. The bloke who is making the new door and window openings can fit them, so no problem there.

    The question is Ė are they any good? Obviously I donít want something thatís a load of rubbish and completely insecure. However, given that weíll have to replace all of the windows in the house at some point in the next 5 years or so, they donít necessarily have to be the most durable windows/doors ever.

    All thoughts and advice gratefully Ė as always Ė received!



    Ps whilst Iím here Ė how can I turn a plain glass window into a frosted window, without replacing the glass? Iím thinking some kind of film or sprayÖ I canít stand the patterned obscured glass, but prefer the etched/frosted look, if that makes sense. Thanks!
