If you’ve had the same windows and doors for a number of years, it may be time to consider replacing them. Even older double glazing will start to reduce in energy-efficiency over time so upgrading to modern PVCu windows and doors could benefit your home for years to come.
There are several reasons why replacing older windows and doors could improve everything from the appearance of your property to energy costs throughout the year. Take a look at why you should consider this important home improvement option:
Save money on bills
One of the top reasons to replace PVCu windows and PVCu doors is the cost savings in the long term. Investing in A-rated double glazing options removes draughts and keeps your home feeling warmer for longer. The addition of trickle vents also helps fresh air to circulate, which keeps condensation and moisture build-up at bay. An ideal solution for effective insulation at doorways and entrances is choosing composite doors. These specialist doors have a foam core that provides efficient thermal properties to minimise heat loss.
Increased security and sound insulation
Having new windows and doors fitted helps to improve the security of your home. Double glazing is harder to break and naturally acts a deterrent to burglars. PVCu windows and doors also come with secure locks for extra peace of mind. Another bonus of double glazing is reduced noise from outside. For example, if you live near a busy street or a railway, you’ll notice a difference immediately when new windows have been installed.
Create kerb appeal
To give the exterior of your property an update, replacing windows and doors offers a modern refresh. You can choose a variety of designs to match traditional or contemporary style perfectly. Bay windows and sash windows are a beautiful addition to older properties whilst Velux windows and modern tilt and turn windows look perfect for new homes. Porches can also get a modern update with a range of doors to suit the exterior of your property.
Bring the outside in
A great way to transition the interior of your property with the exterior is replacing traditional patio doors with French doors. Another option for opening up the back of your home further and immersing yourself with your garden space is choosing modern bi-fold doors. Both these options are ideal for extending your living space and making the most of the views into your garden.
Add a conservatory
Conservatories are a great way to add space and light into your home. There is a range of designs to choose from which include cost-effective and energy-efficient solutions for every property. This cosy, sun-drenched addition is ideal for entertaining guests or relaxing with a good book and can be tailored to fit individual style and preferences.
