Finesse Windows prides itself on being a Birmingham based company and this is reflected in our community involvement in Kings Norton and the surrounding areas. From our open-door policy in the showroom and factory to always being on hand to visit customers in person, we are much more than just a faceless company and this is reflected in our interactions with the local community.

New doors for Bournville Infant School
Finesse Windows firmly believe in supporting local good causes, and being at the heart of the local community, so in June 2017, we were only too pleased to be able to help by fitting new secure locking red Elegance doors to the bus. Bournville Infant School are very excited to have a new learning environment; The student council have come up with some ideas that they would like to use it for, reading area, library space, craft area, quiet space and games corner with bean bags.
In 2015 Finesse started its Worthy Cause campaign, encouraging local residents to nominate and vote for causes in the local community to receive £10,000 worth of windows to be supplied and fitted, completely free of charge.
The overwhelming Worthy Cause winner on the Finesse Facebook page was Rowheath Pavilion in Bournville. As with most community facilities in Bournville, it was built by the Cadbury family back in 1924 and has endured a rather storied history. Having fallen into a state of disrepair, it was rescued in the 1980s and has since gone on to re-establish itself as a local community hub for sporting and entertainment purposes. Upon winning the prize, Finesse worked closely with Rowheath management and the Bournville Village Trust to ensure that the unmistakable character or the area was maintained, while also being brought bang up to date in terms of security and energy efficiency.
In 2016, Finesse decided we wanted to increase our social conscious footprint and have looked at how we can support more than just a single beneficiary – hence why we’ve developed our Schools Support Initiative, whereby for every customer that quotes a participating school name at time of initial enquiry which then goes on to place an order with Finesse we will donate 5% of the total project value to the school to spend however they wish, perhaps on the Arts, Music or Sports.
