A tightly knit team: First Windows and Doors

Located at 7 Langstone Lane Papanui, First Windows and Doors Christchurch knows more than a thing or two about high-quality windows and doors.

Able to offer the full range of residential aluminium and uPVC joinery, including thermally broken options, this is the definitive go-to for countless consumers. The company also manufactures the Smartwood range, which is a timber/aluminium composite product. From the inside it looks just like traditional timber joinery, but with aluminium on the outside, you save all that sanding, painting and maintenance.
Within the tightly knit team, there are more than 450 years of collective experience in the industry. Customers are crucial to all businesses, but without good staff you’ll never keep those customers happy.

Staff culture is a massive priority for First Windows and Doors. From the shop floor through to management, there is a real family feel to the team. Everyone looks out for and supports each other in times of need, and the company offers ‘no questions asked’ counselling for all staff.Six employees have worked there more than ten years, one employee has for twenty, and four employees have worked there more than 25 years. This is a company that celebrates our modern multi-cultural society and the team reflects this.

First Windows and Doors is also very excited to welcome Tony Borlase as the new General Manager. With his skills and experience, Tony is set to lead First Windows and Doors into an exciting future.

First in its class: thirty years of delivering great quality means First Windows and Doors know a thing or two about customer satisfaction

A culture of loyalty is what drives locally owned First Windows and Doors Christchurch, a family owned company specialising in supplying aluminium windows and doors to residential new builds and renovations.

First Windows and Doors

Managing Director Simon Carrodus, says loyalty to customers, suppliers and staff has seen the company thrive on repeat business, serving some clients for more than twenty years.
Simon recently bought the company from his father and plans to continue the thirty-year tenets of doing the basics well: delivering on time and ensuring the windows fit. Although long known as ‘the builders’ choice’, the company is happy to deal directly with the public.
First Windows and Doors has all the thermally efficient options and is seeing the market share for these windows grow. Simon says ‘Klima’ uPVC windows are the best performing for thermal efficiency and the company has two different aluminium thermally broken options as well. There is also the unique Smartwood option – windows where the inside frame is wooden, with aluminium exterior – a popular choice for a classic home.
There are 22 staff on the floor and eight in the office, including three sales reps and a full-time site measurer offering free measure and quotes. Simon says, “We give such great personalised service that people are always surprised at how big we actually are”.
