We have just started our first job from an enquiry as a result of a recommendation we received on the East Dulwich Forum. The EDF allows the residents of SE22 & SE23 to share their experiences with local tradesmen and voice their opinions. It’s extremely popular and widely used for, aside from looking for and finding the best sash window refurbishment company, reporting lost cats and asking for opinions on what’s the best dishwasher on the market etc.
We refurbished the sash windows in a mid-terraced property just off The Lordship Lane in June of this year. The owners graciously put a recommendation on the forum and we immediately had several calls requesting a quote. Within a niche market such as ours we are very happy to receive such interest and it shows the power of a neighbourhood forum. I expect the opposite would occur if one were to receive a poor review (not that we’d know thankfully)
A few of the enquiries are still pending, but we already have a booking for January and received the go ahead to work on a property in the heart of Dulwich Village. We have just started this job and are to refurbish four sash and one Oriel window, which is like a mini bay window.
