A Day in the life of a Sheerwater Glass Installer

Stef, one of our very talented installers, has been working at Sheerwater Glass for nearly 5 years. We headed out to a site today to catch a few minutes of his time to learn more about his job.

How long have you been fitting windows for?

20 years! I trained on a Carpentry and Joinery course, then worked alongside qualified fitters to gain experience before being let out on my own.

Prior to working at Sheerwater Glass, I worked for a few local window firms, but I love working here!

What skills do you require to be an installer?

A good ‘eye for level’, be able to think a few steps ahead of the job and communicate well with customers.

What is a typical day?

We get to the yard early to load up the van, then usually manage to fit 5 windows and maybe a door, depending on how hard the originals are to get out.

Do you have a favourite job?

I enjoy fitting warm roofs. They’re good fun and it’s something a little bit different to what we’re used to doing.

What do you enjoy most about your job?

Definitely the satisfaction of seeing the happy customers when the job is finished.

How do you spend your time when you’re not working?

If I get a chance I enjoy swimming, cycling or having a drink with my mates. Otherwise, I’m entertaining the kids! 

And lastly, what is your favourite food and drink?

A Vindaloo, or in the summer months I enjoy a nice salad, washed down with a glass of red wine!

Our customers say

“Used the Sheerwater team to replace a couple of Velux windows in our converted loft. Really first class experience, great communication throughout, super professional and the installation was the best we've had in terms of fit and finish and (lack of) damage to surrounding areas. Will use again!”Tim Loake
