Windows and Swimming pool
« on: July 15, 2018, 02:05:00 PM »
Hi
We are currently preparing to renovate our old farmhouse and are shocked at the price of Windows in Italy ! Has anyone any recommendations in the Guardiagrele area of companies who are more reasonable ?
Also I believe that someone on here has a swimming pool business - does anyone have his details ?
Many thanks

The swimming pool business was linked to tandp on this forum but not heard from them for a while.

You could try contacting them via their website http://www.homeaway.co.uk/p1344678

A friend of mine shipped his windows from The Czech republic for half the price of here, if thatís any use! BEST OF LUCK

We had new windows and doors fitted a year after moving out here & thought the price was great for what we got; top quality windows, mozzie screens & shutters; made a big difference to heating in winter / keeping cool in the summer.

We used Ideal Fenster; PM me if you want any further info.
In Abruzzo since March 2013

I agree Scott, the cost of windows is very high, but, generally, they are bespoke and tailored to your exact specifications (i.e. hardwood, softwood, softwood with aluminium, aluminimum, with mozzie screens or without etc. etc.) unless you have your openings configured for off the shelf windows. We've used De Ninis in Vacri (not that far from Guardiagrele). Their website is http://www.deninisserramenti.com/. Best of luck.

A long time since Iíve read a post(s) on the subject of windows, but I seem to recall that many people imported windows from Germany and/or Scandinavia because of cost and quality issues here in Italy. Mind you judging by the cost one of our children paid in the UK recently it is not cheap for good quality windows there either.

I too found them expensive, but worth it. We actually got triple glazed, two french doors for terraces, one standard do and three windows. Screens on all so we can keep the breeze flowing and bugs out, and full shutters on the terrace doors which overlook the street. Total cost was about 8K EU, including the masonry work, which was fairly extensive. It made a big difference this last winter.
