The majority of our clients prefer a maintenance free material for their windows or conservatory frames.

After many months of preparation a new chapter in the history of Admiral will see the skills of its existing staff utilised in the creation of loft conversions throughout East Anglia. Steve Thorogood Admirals MD comments. “This diversification is a natural shift for the company as we already employ all of the skills required including structural engineers and partnering with local building control. There are very few professional organisations offering loft design and conversion work in the area and our reputation should ensure the success of the loft conversion operation”.
