A set of secure, stylish new windows can add a serious curb appeal to your home. However, as the years go by, windows will gradually lose their luster and start to look dull and tired. They may also contribute to increased heat loss and higher energy bills.
If your windows are detracting from your home’s appeal, you should seriously consider upgrading them. Here are some of the key benefits of investing in new windows can bring about:
A New Lease of Life for Your Home
Windows can rejuvenate properties of any age. Whether your home was originally built 20, 30, 100 or more years ago, the addition of new, high-quality windows can be transformative. Modern styles can make many homes look brand new, whilst traditional styles can augment older properties’ period character.
Improved Energy Efficiency
Thanks to improved technology, modern windows offer superior energy efficiency when compared to their older counterparts. U-value is the standard metric used in the glazing industry for assessing windows’ energy efficiency. A good-quality double-glazed window unit (the most common specification) may have a center-pane U-value of 1.1, whilst a triple-glazed unit can have a center-pane U-value of 0.8 or less.
Whether you opt double or triple-glazing, upgrading your windows can translate to significant savings on your energy bills thanks to reduced heat loss.
An Extensive Choice of Styles and Designs
When it comes to the window designs, today’s homeowners are spoilt for choice. Leading window companies offer their customers a choice of thousands of attractive contemporary and traditional designs and a far greater level of customisation than in years gone by.
Frames are available in a multitude of colours and finishes (including woodgrain effect, which can complement period and rural properties). Additional touches such as leaded and decorative glazing can augment your windows’ character.
Reputable window companies can manufacture new windows to measure, ensuring a perfect fit and greatly reducing installation time. Their experienced fitters can then professionally fit your new windows with a minimum of fuss, leaving you free to enjoy them!
Affordability and Value for Money
Although the decision to have a set of brand new windows fitted is a considered one, today’s leading window companies can provide this service at a competitive price. What’s more, many companies also offer finance options, allowing you to spread the cost over several years.
A Great Investment for Your Home
Upgrading your windows is straightforward, hassle-free, and can offer a fantastic return on investment to boot. No matter which style or configuration you opt for, you’ll be able to enjoy stylish, energy-saving windows for years to come!
