Ideal Window Solutions was formed in 1996 by Chris Palmer, and we've been supplying and installing quality uPVC, timber and aluminium double glazed windows, doors and conservatories ever since.
We became a Limited company!
Renowned building developing firm, Berkeley Homes, chooses IWS as their glazing partner for a new housing development.
The Double Glazing and Conservatory Scheme (DGCOS) began in 2010 to primarily protect consumers against cowboy builders, specifically for the glazing industry. DGCOS founding membership instils confidence that we are a reputable trader that adheres to strict ethical sales practices, whilst delivering quality workmanship and excellent customer service.
We gained a new showroom in prime location opposite a major car park and market in Chichester, perfect for all our local residents.
Reflecting the company’s ambitions for further growth, Thom Emerson came on board as a business partner in 2012. Thom had previously worked as Group Marketing Director at MASCO UK Window Group; the UK’s largest manufacturer of uPVC windows and doors. With our roots firmly set in the commercial and new-build sectors, this is the start of expanding our reputation within the domestic sectors.
2014 was a landmark year for the IWS team. Moving to a new Head Office in January 2014, the move was closely followed with the launch of our substantial Fareham showroom on May 31st. The Unity Building Fort Fareham is Hampshire’s largest indoor home improvement showroom of its kind and continues to wow our visitors.
We refurbished the showroom to showcase even more of our highly sought-after popular coloured products, bifold doors, and a products that also suit conservation areas like our vertical sliders.
Ideally located in thriving Fareham, historic Chichester and the south-coast city of Southampton, whether you have a firm idea in mind or you’re still not quite sure, our three extensive showrooms provide valuable inspiration that’s second to none. Open 6 days a week, 10am-5pm, an array of beautiful products, a welcoming atmosphere and a professional, friendly and knowledgeable team await your arrival!Book an appointment

A very polite and well-mannered chap done an excellent job leaving us very satisfied with his quality of work and tidiness he left the area in.
Fitter removed old door with care. Worked using dust sheets super neat and tidy. All debris taken away super pleased!
Apart from sending the wrong glass for the door I can't fault this installation. The error was soon rectified with little fuss. The fitter went just that extra mile to make everything perfect.
