Energy Efficient

In today’s modern world, we are becoming more energy-efficient and windows are no exception.

Double glazed windows, compared to single, are A+ rated windows are much more efficient as they allow more heat to flow through and retain in your house. Our typical British weather means cold nights, rain and harsh winds are the normal results of most given seasons – Double glazed windows provide as an excellent investment to combat the harsh weather and to keep your home warm in winter and cool in the summer! 


Single-glazed windows are now a cause for concern in terms of security. Single-glazed windows are much easier to break, making your household a possible target for a burglar. 

While it is possible to break double-glazing, this type of window will be harder to break and would also cause a considerable amount of noise – something that a burglar would be keen to avoid at all costs! 

By installing double glazed windows, you will provide more valuable security for your household and contents inside.  

Return On Investment 

If or when the time comes to sell your house, many buyers will be looking for homes that are well prepared for living in and not require any additional costs.

Buyers will be more inclined to buy a house with efficient and secure windows, rather than having to purchase their own. 

So if you ever wish to sell your home, you must market your home to the best of your ability – hence the return on investment. 

When you invest in brand new, secure well-insulated windows – you will certainly get your money back and more.

Here are some tips for choosing the correct style of window for the age and characteristics of your household. 

UPVC window frames – These frames are a great low maintenance choice for new build households but would look completely out of place with say, a Georgian townhouse.
