Keep Up-To-Date with News from Heath Windows and Doors Cardiff.

We are passionate about home improvements and particularly about windows and doors.

We see windows and doors as more than something that opens and closes to let you or the light in and out. We see them as extensions of your personality and an expression of the way that you like to live. We love getting to know our customers and the reasons why they choose particular windows and doors. Do you choose a brightly coloured door or will you fall back to a safe neutral position when you come to the final choice? Will you change from the existing colour and arrangement or will you make a radical change.

These journeys fascinate us and we are here to help make that journey exciting for you. A major purchase for your home should be exciting and give you pleasure for many years to come. Our news pages help to give you some insight to our personality and help you think more about the choices you make.

As always, if you have any questions, please get in touch.

However the prestigious door remains as an immaculately polished black door with an iron knocker in the shape of a lion’s head and a brass letter box. And let’s not forget the bold, white number 10.
