Every now and again we will introduce a member of our team and expand on the team profiles we already have. Today, it’s Gerald’s turn.

Name: Gerald Bull

Position: Managing Director

Role: Manager, Surveyor, Fitter, Builder

A builder by trade, Gerald always bought his windows from well-established Cosyhomes. After 28 years, the business was about to close its shutters for good after John – the previous owner – decided to retire. What a loss this would have been to Chessington? Gerald stepped in and took over in 2005 and Cosyhomes has continued to thrive since.

An installer of windows and doors for 35 years, Gerald is an expert in the trade. Customers appreciate his personal and passionate approach, as well as his willingness to find a way – nothing is ever too much trouble!

Gerald enjoys Coastal weekends with his wife (accompanied by a glass of wine or two) – when he can pull himself away from work that is…

At Cosyhomes one of the ways we give our customers vision and help them look at changing their windows or doors is to suggest looking at what their neighbours have done. Their call may have come into us because we have completed an installation for somebody down their street in any case. Most of our work comes through word of mouth, recommendation and people seeing us in action. By seeing what other houses have chosen, gives a good indication of what yours will turn out like. You can also see what to avoid – what doesn’t suit or look good. This is particularly the case when looking at how to split the window or whether to chose lead or Georgian bars. At the same time Cosyhomes has a wealth of knowledge and experience to be able to advise on what will be aesthetically pleasing to your style of house, your size of window. We have been doing this many years and seen every eventuality.

Now, Gerald can even look at a window and measure it without a measuring tape. Not for ordering purposes, of course – that would be amazing, and slightly risky too! He also knows windows and the profile we use inside out. He has a cross section of the window and all the measurements that you could possibly think of stored inside his head. Our customers rave about how helpful he is, and his expertise. But he is only doing his job, albeit with a passion, and doing it to the best of his ability – pretty perfectly we’re reliably informed.

We don’t have a team of sales people on expensive commission. With us you get somebody who has actually fitted a window – thousands of them in fact! And that’s why when we send our surveyor, you get the real deal. Not someone in a posh suit with the gift of the gab offering you ridiculous discounts or blatant gimmicks to sign up now. Our way is to advise on what best suits your house at the same time as tailoring it to your needs and your budget. OK, we’ll admit it – we’re not very good at up-selling. If you don’t need to have those extra casements, we’ll tell you. If it would look better without the expensive lead work, we’ll tell you. If you can get away with changing glass alone, we’ll tell you. Cosyhomes are only interested in doing good honest work; a high quality job at a fair and competitive price.

So if you’re thinking about getting a quote, instead of talking to those sales reps take out the middle-man and deal direct. Get in touch with Cosyhomes and arrange an appointment for Gerald to pop round a take a look. We won’t camp round your house for hours or bombard you with sales calls. It’s in our interest, and yours, to keep things simple and hassle free.
