In addition to the office-based staff, Velux have teams of professional sales people and service technicians based across the whole of the UK and Ireland.

Do you know how to check to see if you have a genuine Velux window? On your Velux window there is a code which will tell us exactly the size of blind you need. It starts with a  three-letter code beginning with a G or a V followed by another code. For example: GGL S05. If you discover you do not have a Velux – don’t worry. Blind Technique can make blinds for any window size plus we offer the other main skylight roof blind ranges for you to choose from.

As Autumn begins, why not take the time to check you have all the window dressings you need within your home so you can continue to enjoy using the space you have created for you and your family.

If you find you need new custom blinds or even refurbish existing ones, contact us today.
