Apropos Reviewsrequest a factory tour
We love hearing from our happy customers after we’ve packed up our installation team and left them to enjoy their new light filled glass space! Below is a selection of reviews apropos has received from just a few of our well satisfied clients:
Installation went so Well
“The apropos installation went so well, Andy and his team were great and it all ran smoothly. We are currently in week eight of a twelve week build and I now understand why sensible people move out when they are having a building project undertaken! Bob has been fabulous and I am so glad that you recommended him, Nigel and I have found him very easy to work with, very loud, but very committed to giving you what you want.”
Mrs Smart, Bedfordshire
Delighted with our New Room
“We are delighted with our new room in Idlewild. It is used every day as a study and recreational area. The triple aspect windows and doors look onto three beautiful views. The large glass panels in the roof create an even light throughout the space. The high ceiling is fine for my largest easel needed for big canvasses.
Now in Novemeber, we have had temperatures of 1 degrees but the underfloor heating has not yet been engaged as the room remains at a steady 20 degrees (c) and when the sun comes out, rises to 25 degrees (c).
Thank you to everyone who contributed to creating such a special space”
Peta and Hunter Devine
Quality of the Manufacture is Excellent
“We are delighted with our Apropos extension. The quality of the manufacture is excellent and it has improved our living space out of all recognition.
The customer backup from Apropos was great at all points in the process, from initial site visits, handling the planning application through to liaising with our builders prior to installation. The Apropos team who installed the structure were courteous and respectful and extremely quick.
We would recommend Apropos to anyone thinking of extending their homes.”
Jonathan and Lorena Evans-Jones
Hassle-Free From Start To Finish
“Our windows and doors were replaced with a quality product, which looks fantastic. Reliable and trustworthy staff, and hassle-free from start to finish.”
Juliet Thompson, Yorkshire
Thorough & Polite
“I meant to say how well Michael, Graham and your entire team have worked. A pleasure to have here. They worked very hard. They did that bit extra which you do not always see, but very much appreciate. Went that extra mile. I nice bunch of guys. Even when they had the glass damage they cleared up EVERY tiny shred of glass because of our dog. Very thorough and polite. A credit to your company. We now look forward to using your product in a few weeks time. If you are ever down this way please do call in to see us.”
Martin Masters, Winchester
Impressed By Aftercare Service
“I am really pleased with my conservatory and spend lots of time using it. I can’t thank you enough for the efforts made to get the structure up as fast as possible. I was also impressed with your aftercare service. My particular thanks must also go to Jack who did a fabulous job in helping me.”
Dr. J. Brockington, Durham
A ‘Crack’ Team of Installers
“Just a note to thank the team at Apropos for a stunning set of doors at the back of my little flat, and for the great service throughout.
I signed up almost immediately due to Brendan’s enthusiasm and vision. I signed up to the a vision Brendan had sold me and two weeks in, the financial package was in place with Barclays, but then I was diagnosed with cancer, and was facing surgery and radiotherapy over a few months. I just couldn’t then face the prospect of the large scheme, with party wall agreements and digging out involved, not to mention disruption and expense – and yet by that time I was past the date when the contract could be cancelled.
This is where Brendan’s ingenuity came into play. A smaller scheme was proposed, recosted, and accepted, and a refund agreed for the overspend that the original finance would have committed me to. From then on it all went like clockwork. The engineering drawings and the liaison with the engineers office, Lucy and Amanda were all great. And what can I say about Steve, and the “crack” team of installers? They like their tea, I can tell you that and the meaning of “crack” was discussed with great northern humour!
I love my new flat and would recommend Apropos to anyone.”
Hazel Faulkner, London
A First Rate Job
“The designer from Apropos interpreted our thoughts perfectly creating a structure that is simple and stunning at the same time. The interaction between our builder and Apropos was seamless and everything went like clockwork. A first rate job.”
Mrs Mountjoy, Cheshire
Exceptional Advice and Service
“Apropos provided exceptional advice and service throughout the project from initial design to completion of the glass structure. They worked with us to create an innovative modern extension that blends perfectly with our 17th century farmhouse”
Mr & Mrs James, North Yorkshire
A Stress-free House Transformation
“My wife and I had been looking for a smart glass/aluminium extension for some time when we discovered Apropos (thanks, Google). Right from the start, when we first met the Apropos designer, it became clear that Apropos is a professional, no-nonsense company that happens to be creating the most fantastic structures that have the potential to completely transform any existing building.
A complete Apropos design to installation package came with a fixed price tag that was almost too good to be true and, once we saw the design, we were sold. From then on, the house transformation process was managed by Apropos from planning application and site survey, to production of the customised structure, and its installation, leaving my wife and myself completely stress-free.
Particularly, the technical support and guidance that Apropos provided to our builder in preparation for the installation of the structure and its actual installation on site, were events worth highlighting. The technical expertise, experience, organisation, confidence, and professionalism of the Apropos engineers and technical staff were impressive and instilled us with a great deal of confidence. What I personally found really good was that the Apropos technical staff always displayed a can-do attitude and, interestingly, they were evidently proud of their company and the product they were delivering. True ambassadors.
And now my wife and I have been enjoying the most beautiful living space for the past nine months. Not a day goes by without us looking up at it in awe.”
Mr. Veulemans, Whalley Range, Manchester
Efficient, Sociable & Very Good
“It all looks very good [a bespoke dormer window] and having the sliding/folding window was definitely worth the additional cost. Your workmen were very efficient and sociable. They arrived at 8am and finished just as it was getting dark.”
Mr. Price, Somerset
Award Winning Relationship
“Having worked closely with the team at Apropos on previous projects it was an honour to be asked to share their stand at this year’s Grand Designs Live. The bespoke structures designed and created by Apropos represent the very highest quality, and we are very proud of our award-winning relationship with them.”
Tom Mulroy, Calderpeel Architects
“We made our initial inquiry in June. It is now the first week of November and we have our orangery complete with weeks to go before Christmas!
From the initial design/sales meeting, to construction, to finish, Apropos and their build team have done everything we have asked of them and in so much less time than we thought possible.
Our property is over 100 years old and our 6 x 3.5 metre orangery is a perfect addition. From the outside it complements the older structure with timeless design and from inside the classically styled roof lantern adds another dimension to our living space, with the modern folding glass doors flooding the house with light.
We have reconfigured our kitchen and dining room into one large open plan space with the orangery connecting to this at the rear. Although a separate project, Apropos have considered and often advised us on everything else we had planned and how best to coordinate its schedule with theirs.
We had a choice of using our own builders or theirs and I am glad we used theirs. Everyone has been polite, efficient, hard working and with a much needed sense of humour. Their care and attention to detail has been faultless as well as their skill and commitment to the project.
The Apropos products (roof lantern and doors) are top quality. They are not the cheapest in the market, but you are paying for a genuinely bespoke construction as well as the smallest possible frame system (and therefore largest glass area) you can buy; which really does make a big difference to the finished product. The Apropos orangery is not a run of the mill conservatory. It is a significant part of our internal and external architecture and certainly not a cheap ‘add-on’.
We would certainly recommend Apropos for their design, product, service and project management.”
Mr. & Mrs. Wright, Over, Cambridgeshire
“The engagement, project management and after care support with Apropos was extremely professional. The services and installation teams were excellent and of the highest standard. The construction/building company that worked with Apropos were second to none and the final product is of the highest standard.
The finished article is first class and I would highly recommend Apropos to anyone. I am a true believer of ‘you get what you pay for’ and if you want quality then Apropos win hands down!”
Mr. T. Alexander, Cheshire
They Were Wonderful
“The Apropos team have now finished the job. They were wonderful, not only did they fix the down pipe well but also moved the original to the other end of the guttering. This was such a help because it is all done now and I have a self-watering section at that end of the pipe which will do my rose bush a lot of good. I do hope you will pass on my message to the boss – they have earned a prize this week!”
Mrs. Woolhouse, Cambridge
Pleasing Alternative Design Ideas
“Brendan was very helpful in providing alternative design ideas. He clearly explains what is suitable for your particular requirements and is full of energy in explaining what design enhances your property. We are very pleased with Brendan’s final design and we now spend the majority of our time in our new living space which is extremely airy, light and seamless with the garden.”
Mr. & Mrs. McAllister, London N10
“We are very pleased with the roof for our extension. The fitting was trouble free and very efficient. We have found all the employees from Apropos extremely helpful throughout.”
Mr. & Mrs. T. Whelan, Bolton
Apropos Go The Extra Mile
“You made it all so easy – being on an island we are at the mercy of any company prepared to come here. All of your staff at all levels are a credit to your company. Thank you.”
Mr. J. Moore, Isle of Man
“Everyone was very professional and very nice. Wonderful experience.”
Oguz Family, Mayfair, London
Very Professional Company
“Could have gone for a much cheaper product but like the quality of Apropos having seen an installation at a local Farmhouse. Expensive but we believe worth it. Very professional company, good technical support and good staff.”
Mrs. Robin, Leicestershire
Hopes Fully Realised
“We had an ambitious plan for an extension over two storeys, using large glass areas to make the most of our stunning views over Saddleworth. Apropos have created structures fully realising our hopes.”
Dr. A. Dobson, Saddleworth
Delighted With Our New Conservatory
“We have been slowly and carefully updating a cottage to a high standard. What we felt it needed was a small conservatory that would double as a utility room. The space was there but it was awkward because of the irregularity of the old existing walls. apropos came up with the perfect solution. We now have a room that lets in all the early morning light and is just the place for a collection of plants and for concealing the boiler, the washing machine and the dryer. As an addition to the cottage it looks appropriately twenty-first century, rather than olde worlde.”
Our builder, a man of sound judgment who has been working for us for nineteen years, commented on the sturdiness and quality of the basic structure. We are delighted with the style of our new conservatory and the way that it functions.”
Mr. S. Carlton, Bristol
Superbly Engineered & Second To None
“The service we received from start to finish was second to none. We paid for the best and received the best. The structure is superbly engineered and unlike anything else we have seen or heard of.”
Mr. & Mrs. Bowker, West Yorkshire
Exceptional Service, Fantastic Windows
“I am writing to say how impressed we are with our Apropos French Windows. They look fantastic. Our whole experience has been of a professional customer orientated company from start to finish. The fitters worked hard and left the site in pristine condition. Thanks to all your staff for providing such an exceptional service.”
Mr. & Mrs. Axelby, Sheffield
