General FAQ’s

Q - I am interested in EEC Home Improvements services, how should I proceed?

A – Please complete our FREE appointment form here and a member of EEC Home Improvements will contact you. Alternatively you can call 0800 783 0277. Our advisors will provide you with information about the product you are interested in, answer any questions you may have and can arrange a FREE no obligation home survey and quotation.

Q - Do I need to own my property in order to have EEC Home Improvements work on my home?

A – For legal reasons, the owner of the property must authorise any alterations and home improvements to their property. Therefore if your property is rented or council, we would expect proof of consent from the property owner or the property owner must contact EEC Home Improvements direct.

Q - Are EEC Home Improvements Insurance backed?

A – Some products do include insurance backed guarantees. Our advisors can discuss this with you in more detail. All EEC’s home improvement work is covered by extensive public liability insurance so you can rest assured that you are in safe hands.

Q - Why do both partners have to be there for the home survey and quotation?

A – Home improvement decisions are really important. When we visit your home to provide a free written quote for home improvements work, you will need to decide things such as colours, styles, appearance, technical specifications and of course costs. This will allow EEC Home Improvements to provide an accurate quote that will be suitable for both partners, its best you are both involved (or a 3rd party if required) and you are both aware of any agreements before work begins.

Q - Can I receive a quote by email or over the phone?

A – In certain circumstances such as solar products we can provide a quotation over the phone. If you decide to go ahead with the quotation, we would also need to attend your property to make sure everything quoted was correct and the appropriate paperwork  will need to be signed. With most home improvement products they are individually tailored and we work out costs to your exact requirements, so to receive an accurate cost please contact us to arrange a home improvement visit.

Q - How long will my home visit last?

A – Our home improvement surveys suit individual requirements so the length can vary. The visit should last no longer than 2 hours.

Both parties need to sign the paperwork before work commences and all aspects of the work will be confirmed in writing. We also provide cancellation rights.

Solar FAQ’s

Q - Do Solar Panels only work on sunny days?

A – No. Solar Panels absorb sunlight even on cloudy days. So while they work most efficiently in the summer when we have more hours of sunlight, they will still work all year round.

Q - How much money will I save by installing Solar Panels?

A – It is impossible to give an estimated calculation without measuring the size of your roof, its pitch, orientation and location. Please visit our Solar PV page here to request a FREE appointment or contact one of our experienced Solar PV advisors on 0800 783 0277.
