Here are answers to come of our most popular questions about our service and innovative way to buy the windows and doors homeowners and builders want.
How does buying from Dorsia Work?
It's this simple:
The doors and windows you want, available direct.
Dorsia takes the headache away from homeowners and their builders having to buy from the conventional retail route.
We've access to all the top brands of doors and windows as well as the styles and looks popular with todays property professionals and home improvers.

Can builders fit doors and windows.
A good builder does know how to install windows and doors. Or, they're already working with knowledgeable installers that can.
The Dorsia way of getting the doors and windows you want, ensures homeowners get the best prices direct and their builders install.
And even if you're unsure, we're here to help and can even put you in touch with tradespeople to fit your new glazing and still saving you money.
What about the survey, window and door firms tell me is essential?
Don't be fooled by the retail route insisting you need a survey. You don't.
First of all, most good builders are very familiar with measuring apertures for new windows and doors. They're equally proficient in measuring existing openings for replacement doors and windows.
Therefore, in most cases you'll find most builders more than happy to measure up.
We also provide you or your builder with detailed information for measuring and surveying. We can also advise where you may need extra help. Examples include whether additional trims are required, cill sizes, trickle vent requirements and other useful information.
How do my doors and windows arrive on site?
Dorsia products come ready or with everything you need for a fast installation.
Subject to the product and sizes, you'll find most products fully fabricated, assembled and ready to fit. We even take care of the essential items - each of these is cut to size and ready to fit into the product. Cills, beads and add-on pieces are a good example.
Larger products such as sliding or bifolding doors come with the door panels assembled. Usually these require assembly of the frame. Again, most builders know how to do this and we also have comprehensive instructions and guides.
For the small extras and ancillaries you'll find most builders have these or we can supply them too. Examples include glazing packers, silicones and other miscellaneous items.
How do I get a quote?
No more waiting for prices. We know builders want instant prices and homeowners want to have an idea of cost.
This is why we've put together a comprehensive price list with product information, finally giving builders and homeowners instant prices. No confusion, clear and easy to understand.
Most of our standard products are in our price list and catalogue.
In this you'll find sizes, colours, standard specifications and prices. Our catalogue covers virtually all customer requirements, but we can also quote fast on special order items when you get in touch.
What about special colours or made-to-order doors and windows?
We've partnered with the UK's best manufacturers giving you more colour choices.
Our price list shows our most popular colours available, but it's also easy to get a quote on a special colour fast. Just get in touch and we'll give you a price.
And because we know every job is bespoke we've made pricing simple based on most available sizes, from the smallest up the the largest.
So whether you need a large sliding or bifolding door, or the latest steel-look patio doors, prices are just as fast.
How do I understand more about your brands?
Our brands are carefully chosen meeting the four key criteria for for your project.
We know not every project has a big budget. This is why we've also included brands at the more affordable price point, but with great quality, features and specifications.
For those customers wanting better engineering and aesthetics, we've also got some of the best possible brands such as Cortizo, Schuco and Reynaers.
We're confident we have the products you importantly want for their look and feel and at a price you'll love.
Certain products are all about how they look. Here too we make it easy for builders or homeowners to easily understand the differences.
Bifolding doors come to you in a choice of brands based on the all-important mullion sightline. So we've got four different bifolds from the slimmest to the classically styled.
Sliding doors today are all about the sightline of the middle mullions. Again we've given you amazing choice. Seven different bifolds give you the widest possible choice of patio door options. From the slimmest on the market at just 20mm thick, right up to general contemporary sliding doors.
3. Popularity and Desirability.
Trends come and go and it's no different with buying windows and doors.
Every one of our windows and doors promises the look you want.
Our bifolding doors provide the biggest choice and catering for virtually any design or door or new extension.

Front doors give you the latest contemporary looks.
And of course, the sought-after steel-look, Scandi, Hygge and industrial look is on-trend for both outside and inside the property. We've got the best brands here too.
4. Colour options
Most people know aluminium comes in a great range of colours. Dorsia goes even better.
For those wanting even more style to their glazing, we've got metallic and textured finishes.
For projects needing a more traditional window there's even aluminium in the latest woodgrain finishes.
Giving homeowners and builders better products
