As the temperate begins to drop and the new Autumn season looms, it’s time to tuck your garden furniture away and bring the warmth inside. Now is the ideal time to place your order for new windows and doors for your 2022 home renovation projects or new builds?
It might seem odd to be thinking about a home improvement project for 2022 right now, but trust us, NOW is the time to book ahead.
It’s simple – demand is high! Lead times are increasing heading into autumn and winter.
Despite the challenges faced during the pandemic, a boom in home renovations and new window and door installations and manufacturing across 2020 and 2021 has also led to unprecedented demand at the supply end.
This past year, the glazing industry has been experiencing ever-increasing lead times.
The global shortfall of raw materials, coupled with a shortage of lorry drivers, has caused lead times for new windows and doors to change from weeks to months.
Sadly production & delivery times for new windows and doors have doubled, and in some cases, tripled of late.
Our company is not alone in this situation. Global supply chain delays are affecting all UK industries, and we have seen it across all of our supply chains. Whilst no one product has suffered more than any other throughout the year, we experiencing delays across all products.

The glazing industry is seeing huge demand right now, with suppliers unable to build up any stock reserve.
Here at Thames Valley Windows, our goal is to be totally transparent with new and existing customers. From the point of sale, we will advise of lead times based on that day’s information. We will not set expectations that we cannot deliver.
We work hard to communicate honestly and proactively with our customers and suppliers to overcome any delays when and where possible.
We have a very dedicated team determined to limit the external climate’s impact, but sadly, much of this is outside our control.
We will work with you and find the best glazing solution to fit your timeframe and complete your work in a timely, efficient and professional manner.
