We were amazed at the quality and professionalism of Yarra Windows and Doors...
We got several quotes and chose Yarra Windows and Doors because of their product knowledge, their service and their obvious commitment to building customer relationships. Everything went exactly as promised and their follow-up was terrific. We have already recommended them to friends and family and will continue to do so. It is so wonderful to sit in a room without draughts and being able to turn the heating down as there is no longer warmth escaping. Brilliant job Paul and Michael and an absolute pleasure to have you in our home.

Yarra Windows were fantastic to deal with and I have an outstanding product.
My bedroom is on the train line and I wished for noise reduction.
Well the train is a complete non issue with the double glazed windows installed.
There was a few month wait on the product, but it was well worth the wait, for a fantastic product.
Michael from Yarra Windows, could not of been more helpful and pleasant to deal with throughout the entire process.
I am pleased to endorse Paul and Michael of Yarra Windows for the excellent work they do. I had nearly all my old timber frame windows replaced by the fabulous, German made, window units Yarra Windows import and install. What is remarkable is that the windows were fitted perfectly because the measurements first taken were accurate. As manufacture depends on accurate measurement, this cannot be rated highly enough because any error would be costly.
The workmanship of both Paul and Michael is excellent; they appeared when they said they would, were courteous at all times, worked fast, and did not leave a mess! Can’t ask for more than that! Highly recommended.

Paul's 36 years of industry experience in selling, measuring and installing double glazed windows in the UK and Victoria certainly showed with the professional approach he took at each step from selection of the product through to final installation.
Paul made very clear what product he was selling and why. Our bedroom faces a busy and noisy road and while the thermal insulation properties are important, the noise control was our main objective.
Paul's accurate measuring was critical as the product was fabricated in the UK using window extrusions made in Germany. There was no provision for adjusting on site for any error. Paul's understanding of the whole process ensured each unit arrived ready for installation.
The skills of both Paul and Michael in the installation phase were most impressive, both working quickly and cleaning up as they went. Remarkable attention was paid to every detail, ensuring not only that the windows and doors operated correctly but that all trims were fitted to deliver an aesthetically pleasing end result that now provides much more restful sleeping conditions. All objectives were achieved.
Top marks to Yarra Windows and Doors throughout the whole process.
We confidently recommend them to anyone wanting a top class job that solves a window problem.

We just had installed a big window in each of our three bedrooms by Yarra Windows and Doors. They are manufactured in Europe, and are very advanced, superior windows, being argon filled double glazed, with a high-tech PVC frame.
We are very satisfied by the service of the company. Our initial enquiry was answered promptly, and Paul came a long way to inspect our house and give information on the product. His quote was done quickly, and he maintained contact with estimates of the arrival time of the windows from Europe.
The installation was done at our convenience, and Paul and Michael arrived an hour before the estimated time, (just before 8 am) and they worked solidly until just after 5 pm, by which time the job was finished. There was a minimum of disruption, and all the elements of the old windows and frames were removed, leaving no mess for us.
The workmanship is very professional and skilled, and the windows look wonderful. I wondered if the frames might look like plastic, but they look like enameled metal, and are very stylish. The quality is obvious in the hinging and tight sealing, and the sashes open in a vertical plane as well as a casement manner. The blinds are neat and attractive, and ingenious in design and convenience.
We mainly wanted the windows for sound-proofing, which they achieve extremely well. Of course, they also provide thermal insulation to a high level. I do not hesitate to recommend these windows. While they are expensive, they are well worth any cost above that of usual new windows, and they will be durable for a life-time.
Paul and Michael have been efficient and amiable people to deal with, and the whole process has been a pleasure.

Thank you Michael & Paul, the wait was worth every moment. Albeit, we only installed a window and exterior door (doggy door included) at this stage, the rest of the house is scheduled into the budget. Having seen the quality of windows and doors throughout Europe, finding Yarra windows and doors fulfilled our desire to have high performance uPVC windows and doors of German engineering; design and quality, throughout our home. The measure was perfect, as both items, designed, made and shipped from Germany, fitted perfectly into the deteriorating frames of our 1920's home.
It is evident that both Michael and Paul are high quality builders, the measure, quote and installation were professionally executed, they arrived on time,worked with respect for our home, all debris was removed, and we were left with superior quality products, in approximately four hours.
Even the doggy door is an example of European engineering excellence.
Compare carefully when choosing these products, there are several cheaper versions "made in China" - no comparison - but cheaper!!!!
Kind regards, Trish (Hawthorn East)
We can not speak highly enough of Yarra Windows and Doors. Michael and Paul were timely, efficient and had a great work ethic and took real pride in their completed job - deservedly.
They were both highly professional and very pleasant. We are delighted with our new windows and have noticed a huge difference in both noise and temperature of rooms. Great value for money.

Michael and Paul,
It has been four months since you installed double-glazing in our home and I wanted to send you a note to let you know how much we are enjoying it.
It was a big decision to change over all the windows and doors in our 130-year-old period home. You were so respectful and talented at preserving the heritage features around the windows and provided such good solutions with the windows themselves and in maintaining the period feature glass where it existed. We were also amazed at how quickly you installed the windows - they all fit perfectly, there was minimal disruption and you were incredibly tidy!
You would never know that we made such a big change, but pleasingly our house valuation has increased due to the known benefits of double-glazing and your workmanship with our period home.
The noise has significantly reduced which was a really important factor given we are on a main road and tram line. Our house has felt much more insulated and this was validated with our recent bill which was nearly 30% cheaper than normal.
Another surprise bonus was that our house is now much cleaner! I didn’t realise how much dust and dirt was getting in through the doors and windows until you sealed it all.
Many thanks again and we will highly recommend you to others.

Hi Michael & Paul, thanks again
We live in East Malvern in a Victorian era brick home (built circa 1897). We love the heritage feeling of the house but not the rattling windows and drafts.
We did a lot of research and the team at Yarra Windows and Doors gave us great advice and we decided to have two doors and two windows replaced.
The doors, especially the front door (a 'Tenby' Solidor - black with brass fittings), and the 'horned' style casement windows match the heritage style of the original fixtures and look amazing. We are very happy with the final result. The team at Yarra Windows and Doors were professional, on time and very tidy - nothing was too much trouble.
Michael was a pleasure to deal with. No ‘sign-up now’ deals with false mark-ups then marked down. He provided the best advice to meet our needs.
His product is excellent and so was the service. On time, great craftsmanship and a great outcome. I would recommend Yarra Windows and Doors without hesitation.
Regards, Richard and Tim
We have been very pleased with Yarra windows. We met Paul nearly 4 years ago and was so impressed with his passion and professionalism.
The windows were worth the wait, and the installation occurred without a hitch. So impressed we invited them in to complete our second renovation.
On time and never any surprises. They have a respect for the people and property are passionate about their product and workmanship.

After a very unpleasant experience with a large and highly promoted UPVC double glazing company, it was a relief to deal with Michael and Paul of Yarra Windows and Doors.
Michael and Paul essentially rebuilt our old timber framed windows to accept UPVC double glazed units to retain the style and look of our home.
Yarra Windows also installed french doors and several other double glazed units to our home which have greatly reduced the noise intrusion of the main road traffic as
well reducing the cycling of our hydronic heating unit.
Paul and Michael's experience in the building trades is evidenced by the quality of their work and does not rely on sub contractors with questionable skills.
Thanks guys for a great result and we would recommend your company to all.

"We did a lot of research finding the right double glazing for our home.
We chose Yarra Windows and Doors as they offered a superior product at a reasonable price.
We were also very pleased with the level of service when we were choosing our windows, there was no pushy sales pitch and we had plenty of time to inspect examples in their showroom without feeling rushed into making a decision then and there. The windows are manufactured in Europe so it was no surprise that there was a little bit of a lag between placing our order and the finished product arriving, but once they were here the whole installation process was swift and efficient. We are so pleased with the results and would happily recommend Yarra Windows and Doors to anyone considering installing PVC double glazing."
Adam and Barnadi
We are grateful for your professionalism from initial contact through to completion of installation. In our initial meeting you provided extensive detail re your product and answered every query we had about your window range. After comparing your product with others on the market there was no doubt in our minds that we were going to purchase your German designed and manufactured windows.
You provided regular updates from the time of placing the order through to installation stage. The quality of the windows are second to none and we are absolutely thrilled that each and every window fitted perfectly and also looks much better than we initially expected.
A big thanks to both yourself and Paul for your professionalism and also cleanliness during the installation process. You both worked around our little boys (keeping them entertained many times) and completed the installation with nothing left for us to do afterwards, apart from enjoy the new windows.
Thanks again from a very, very happy customer.
