Deciding to replace the windows in your home can be a daunting task, so we’ve put together a list of questions and answers to help with your decision making process.
WHY REPLACE YOUR WINDOWS?
There can be many good reasons to consider replacing the windows in your home. If you have wooden windows, maybe they are beginning to deteriorate, or you find the up-keep too time consuming. Perhaps you only have single-glazing and would like to benefit from the energy efficiency of double or triple-glazing. If you have uPVC plastic windows, maybe they are looking a bit old and discoloured, or you would like the benefit of slimmer frames for a more stylish look.
IS REPLACING WINDOWS A GOOD INVESTMENT?
Around a third of a property’s heat is lost through poorly insulated windows. New windows can dramatically increase the energy efficiency of your home.Replacing your windows can also help to increase the value of your home, by improving the kerb-side appeal, upgrading the energy efficiency rating of the property and also help to make the interior more attractive.
HOW MUCH DOES IT COST TO REPLACE WINDOWS IN YOUR HOME?
There are so many choices of materials and styles that it’s difficult to put a price on replacing the windows in your home, however it’s likely to be more affordable that you might think. While the lower initial capital cost of plastic windows may be tempting, they are likely to need replacing more frequently, and may not be as aesthetically pleasing as other options. Composite windows are not the cheapest option, but certainly not the most expensive when you consider they are longer lasting that most alternatives, require minimal maintenance (unlike wood), look attractive, have an authentic real wood interior and potentially increase the value of your home.
The benefits of fitting composite windows are multiple:
Improved energy efficiency
Increased security –
The warmth of wood indoors
