    "John Gilberston and Fisher Windows Wellington have been terrible to deal with. We've had new windows and a door that were installed by Fisher Windows Wellington and leaked. John refused to rectify the problem and after consulting with other builders and Altus, we ended up at the Disputes Tribunal. We were awarded costs to have the windows replaced to address the weathertight issues. Would not recommend anyone to use Fisher Windows Wellington. If you've had windows installed by this company you may want to get them checked. Hopeless to deal with, poor service - avoid at all costs."

    "Crazy bad experience with this totally unprofessional company. John, was not only terrible at measuring and communication but then turned psycho/crazy to the point where ‘I didn’t want to push him’. End results, we didn’t end up with windows we’d paid deposit for, and renovation had to proceed with old windows. ****ed off now, cause that’s how it’s staying. "

    "I found this company to deal with originally friendly, but John does not follow through with details nor was he honest when he realised he made mistakes with measuring windows. Plans provided he did not follow through and once error arises, he tried to blame the builder. He had hoped I would not remember the important phone call he had made to me, confirming he knew the correct size, but he did not follow through with updating his order system and try to lied about it afterwards. I hope no one else experience the nightmare I had gone through with this firm although I heard through the grapevine this happens quite often with this company especially with John doing the measure and with limited knowledge on window installation. The trouble is I should have listen to those office's rumours about this company and now I experience it first hand. Faulty workmanship and faulty glass are still ongoing issues with leaks in large bay windows through poor silicon adhesive. Again I would not recommend this company to anyone if they do not have enough integrity to getting the job right."

    "Found these guys difficult to rate.

    Sam from their customer service team and John the Manager were excellent and provided a quote faster than anyone else and responding to all of my concerns (which there were a lot of) right away. The were also willing to negotiate on price.

    Unfortunatly the builders they contract were not so great. I had made specific requests about the flashing for the door which did not get followed. This took 2 months and 4 phone calls to sort out. It ended with the Fisher Windows Manager having to have a word with their builder.

    Not sure on the quality of the product, after two days, two of the colonial bars dropped off. However they did repair this (the doors come with a 5 year warrenty) and have had no problems since.

    Its worth shopping round for window and door fittings. Some company\'s have showrooms where you can actually get to see what you are going to get.

    I went with aluminium joinery but if you are considering going for wooden, I found that \'wellhung joinery\' were even cheaper than any of the aluminium quotes I recieved.
