Happy. Better than old windows.
I am happy because my previous windows were old. Happy with new ones. I ordered 3 windows and a door back in 2019. Today I am ordering another two from Jared.
Outstandingly engineered product. Company that delivered on everything it claim in terms of supply and installation
I was not intending to buy the product after receiving a cold call, but on seeing the product I thought it was something I hadn't seen other than in Europe. Having ordered it, I just found dealings with the company were clear and accountable. The installation went to schedule. The product and installation were outstanding. I ordered in May 2021 and they were installed yesterday. I was worried that I'd been absorbed by the influence of a really good salesman, but upon seeing the final product and installation it is outstanding. The delivery and...installation were top class. No regrets whatsoever. The installers were Geoff and Andrew. Aussie tradesman. They did an outstanding job cleaning up. Polished the windows. Clean up was perfect. Installation wasn't easy, but they problem solved a few issues. We have a non-standard home. I ordered 3 windows from Jared initially. I went with rosewood brown on the outside and white on the inside. You get what you pay for. Definitely worth it.
Professional across the board.
We ordered double glazed windows to replace our old windows after seeing Ecostar on google. I lived in London previously and wanted to go with Ecostar. We ordered just before the first lockdown in 2020. Our old windows were very thin and leaky. They were open even when they were shut. With our new window we haven't put a new blind up, which we love because we love looking at the window and the view. Previously we always needed to have the blinds shut for the cold. Not anymore. Thermally it has made a big difference. Before the curtains were...moving when the windows were shut, now it is air tight. Before there was lots of neighbors noise and road/train noise. At night you could definitely hear it and now you can't hear it at all. We had two installers. Installation was great. Can't fault. They were perfect. Cleaned up. Explained what they were doing. Looks wise it looks good. We were worried about the thickness of the frame, but it wasn't an issue. Today we are doing the lounge room, dining room, en suite, playroom and 3 bedrooms.
Windows are the Soul of the Home
All of us in the house are now happy that we have chosen professional company which respected their warranty obligations!
House is noticeably warmer in winter and much more cooler in the extra hot 40+ degrees days.
No wind goes any more through the house and noice reduction is exceptional!
Fantastic product and company to deal with.
I ordered a small number of new windows from Jared to get used to the process with Ecostar. I ordered in January 2021 and they were installed in July 2021. They look fantastic. Caused a problem actually because now I have to update other things in my house! I've already replaced my curtains. There is now no condensation on the inside any more, where previously there was. It has helped thermally. The installers were fantastic, they did an amazing job and also cleaned up after, which is rare in the trades. There were 2 installers. I am now looking at getting done the rest of the upstairs and some downstairs done.
Brilliant - Life Changing
Just found Ecostar very easy to deal with. Very good product. Awesome product.
Lots of good feedback from friends regarding the windows we have. Good job. Our old windows were bloody horrible Southern Star windows. Ugly, cheap, nasty aluminum windows from Geelong that were made in China. Our old ones were noisy in the wind. We tried everything to fix it. Shutters, silicone. Tried everything. We ordered two windows from Jared back in 2019 which has fixed it.
The installers were awesome. Easy to talk to. Explained every step they were do...ing. Cleaned up after themselves. I'll have them back again hopefully. The noise reduction has been good. The noise reduction has been 100%. We now have no noise. Thermally it has helped. Today we are ordering our back door.
As good as promised
We ordered 3 windows and 2 doors from Jared in June 2019, and they were installed in Oct/Nov. The installers were excellent. We were very pleased with them. There were three installers. They finished in a day or two. There was a scratch on one item, which they fixed. Also, on one door the latch was hard to close, which they came back and fixed. There was some water retention in the bottom of the sliding door, which they also came back and fixed. Very happy with the service. The style is nice. Good material. Quality excellent. They have thoug...ht through the design thoroughly. We have friends who come in and ask about them. People normally comment on how solid and good it is. The noise has reduced. The people outside can't hear noise that is happening inside. It is good that it is completely sealed all the way around. Generally happy with security. We feel more secure. It would be good if they could design it to come with a flyscreen. To day we are finishing off the rest of our house and ordering another 11 windows and two doors.
Excellent product for thermal efficency
We purchased our windows from Ecostar approximately five years ago. We wanted to improve thermal efficiency. The installation was seamless. It took 2 days to install 7 windows and doors. It was a pleasure to have the installers. They were very decent guys. Our gas bills are lower. It does a very good of keeping the heat in, in winter. There is very little temperature change throughout the house. Another bonus is that the glass is self cleaning. Security is good. Another thing I like is with the old metal frame windows, they were not the...rmally efficient, but with the plastic windows the profile is much more thermally efficient than the metal frames. Today we are ordering another 5 windows and a new front door from Jared. Another real benefit is that the windows are condensation free.
Very good product. Highly recommend.
We ordered windows in the family room and kitchen to begin with. 7 windows and doors to start about 4 or 5 years ago. The next order was a few years ago and we did the study, front bedroom, en suite and above the front door.
We wanted heating and cooling insulation and reducing noise at the front. It's been very good with the heating. Before the heater was on all the time, the thermostat wouldn't cut out. Now we set it to 18, it gets there and stops. Saving on gas! The noise reduction has helped a lot. We live on a main road and it has h...elped. The installers were very good. Both times they were good. Friendly. Cleaned up and took all the rubbish. The glass they installed was spotless. Very expensive. It hurt actually. However, the back window was massive. A wall of windows. It killed me, but that's okay. Today we are ordering at the hallway, dining room and laundry from Jared.
Quality product. Efficient and friendly staff. Efficient and through installation process and follow-up
I ordered a patio door, 2 dining room windows, large back window and two hall way windows about 5 years ago from Ecostar. The quality of the product is excellent. Follow up and ease of negotiating tweaks and things I might have wanted to change was very easy and staff were patient and accommodating. I wanted climate control and noise control. Very satisfied. You notice the level of noise reduction when you open a door. I like that I can have the music up loud and not worry. It feels like putting the windows and doors in was a very good thin...g to do. I really like the level of security. I am looking at doing my front door and I'm motivated to do that with security, noise reduction and thermal control in mind. Installation was very good.
Good all round service and product
Ecostar has been great. Installation really good and efficient. Since then no problems with locking mechanisms or anything. There is a difference with sound coming through compared with where we have the windows and where we don't. Where we have the Ecostar windows we have a busy road and noisy neighbor and we don't hear much any more, but where we havn't done it we tend to hear more noise especially when it's windy. 70-80% noise reduction is what we've found. We ordered back in 2016 about 10 windows and doors. Before we had the windows done o...ur kids couldn't sleep due to the noise and now they sleep well. The heat keeps in. There were two installers that were here for two days. No difficulty with the workmanship around the windows at all. It has been nice to have a 9 point locking system on the front door. We feel very fortunate. It is a fair investment and I don't feel that we have overinvested into the property. We feel we would probably get the amount we spent back if we were to sell the property. Today we are looking at doing some more.
Very pleased with my new patio window
I had to replace a timber 3 m x 2.1 m timber sliding door to the patio. My plan is to replace windows with double-glazing as they become old and rotten for reasons of thermal efficiency as climate change closes in on us. I chose Ecostar because the PVC frame meant no more painting (yay!) and the window is manufactured in the UK which has a lot of expertise in double-glazing. Ecostar’s quoting process is somewhat bizarre and takes about 2 hours plus more if you decide to go ahead, so be patient! Feel free to bargain. They instruct you in all the...documentation, guarantees, technical specifications, colour options, installation procedures and so on. My parents had double-glazing put in many years ago and I always thought it was ugly, but I was very impressed with the new flat profile. The doors look very stylish and I am very happy with them. The double-glazing is a piece of engineering with almost unbreakable glass and impenetrable locks. I was a bit worried that his marvel of engineering would fail at the installation phase depending on the contractor, but Ecostar seem to use their own people. The installation was completely painless and the guys did a fantastic and professional job and cleaned up everything, taking just 3 hours. I think it was a pretty straightforward install. I made an effort to remove everything from the room and outside to make life easy for them. One downside you might need to consider is the fly screen. I rarely open the sliding door and don’t need one. However, if I wanted a screen I would need a retractable screen across the whole 3 m width and these are very expensive. Since everything has gone well for me so far (the install was about 3 months ago), I have not had to ring Ecostar about any problems, so I can’t comment on their customer service. All in all, I am very pleased with the new patio window and will use Ecostar for my next window that needs replacing.
Effective, polite, good service and high quality.
We ordered an entry door and garage door from Ecostar in 2013. Our next order were windows in the living area, office, bathroom and en suite in 2015 or 2016. In 2020 we did the bedrooms and bathroom. Today we are looking at the laundry and back door. We were looking to increase thermal efficiency and security. We were used to double glazed windows from back in Germany. We used to have old thin, sliding aluminum windows. In the winter it was cold. There was always draft coming through. Crappy windows. I don't know why they don't make UPVC d...ouble glazed the standard for everyone. It would make it cheaper for everyone. We use the heater less now. Less draft. Less cold. I used the split system air con only twice this year. Our house never went over 26/27 degrees at all in the summer. In summer, it was 26 degrees without the air con on, and our neighbors had their air con on all day. It is quieter now. Traffic noise is less. Don't hear the garbage trucks anymore like we used too. Our old front door had a gap underneath it. Not anymore. Windows are secure. Happy with how they look. If we didn't we wouldn't have kept putting them in. The windows make the house look brighter. The installers were good. Done a good job. I'm happy with it. The only thing that makes it tough is the cost, but it's worth it. The product comes from overseas. I don't like the local window I saw. Why put in aluminum double glazing when aluminum is a heat/cold transmitter.
Most important thing is having good windows
I am very happy with Ecostar. We ordered one window in the bedroom in 2016. Our old wooden window was rotten. The installation was good. We had two boys do the installation. It is much much better with our new window. Much better than aluminum. Happy with the look. Definitely good for security. Office are very helpful. Sales guy was nice. We believe it helped improve the value of our house. Today we are looking at ordering another one. The price was a little bit expensive, but you get what you pay for.
Well worth the money
We wanted sound proofing and thermal improvement. We had a quote from Nu Eco, Trend Windows and Ecostar. We chose Ecostar because we liked their choice of windows and we had seen them in Dubrovnik, Croatia. We ordered 5 windows from Ecostar about 5 years ago. The noise reduction has been good. You don't have to talk over people. Can sleep well now. Our house is about 20 metres from Chandler Highway. The noise has reduced by 80%. We like there is no sanding or painting. A lot of our neighbors need to replace their old timber windows. Not us. Security has been an added bonus. Since we ordered, two of our neighbors have ordered Ecostar windows. Mel in the office is very accomadating. Thermal it has improved.

I am only interested in noise reduction as I live on a busy road. Could you provide the RW rating of your various products?
Sorry Peter, we missed this question. Our standard double glazed glass unit will eliminate 80% of external noise. If acoustic glass is used in the unit, them almost 100%.

How much does a standard room window cost?
Ni Idea Bernard. I didn't buy the windows.

The price for the window depends on your choice of design, opening option, double glazed unit spec, colour and much more. That is why we offer free quotations in the comfort of your own home.
