Anglian has been selling double-glazed windows and doors for more than 50 years. It's a well-established and recognisable company. But does that mean Anglian is any good?
We've asked 3,467 double glazing customers about their experiences with well-known brands, including Anglian, Everest and Safestyle, to see how they compare to each other, and with independent or local double glazing firms.
Our independent survey results show that there's a big difference between the double glazing companies. In fact, the first and last-placed companies are nearly 30 percentage points apart.
Anglian customers most commonly chose it because it had a good reputation, sold particular windows or doors they liked or offered a discount. Our unique research reveals how they felt it lived up to their expectations.
The table below shows how Anglian performed across a range of important criteria when buying double glazing and having it installed.
We asked Anglian's customers to rate 15 factors, covering sales, purchase, installation, after-sales and how well the product lasted. These include staff knowledge, the quality of products and installation, clarity of documents - such as the contract - and value for money.
Sales and purchase
How well the double glazing lasted
Our customer scores give a good overall idea of what people think of the brand. They are calculated by combining how satisfied people are with a brand and whether they would recommend it.
Our star ratings enable us to dig deeper into what elements of the sales and installation process are working, and failing, for each of the companies in our survey.
You can use this information, based on the experiences of actual double glazing customers, to help you pick the best double glazing company for your home.
We also ask the customers we survey for comments on the firm they used. These comments reveal exactly what they think about their experience of buying double glazing from that particular firm.
