Your windows are the eyes of your home, and as well as improving the appearance of the exterior of your house, they can compliment your interiors and even save you money on your bills. CN Glass offers a comprehensive window replacement service, allowing you to change your windows and the overall look of your home while also increasing its value and energy efficiency.
Choosing your replacement windows
The best replacement windows for your property will fit perfectly with the character of the house and look like the windows that you should have had all along. It’s an excellent time took at how well lit your interiors are and to improve the energy efficiency of your home.
If you live in an older or heritage property, one of the first steps is checking that the windows can be changed. If your property is listed or in a conservation area you may be restricted in what work can be carried out and planning permission may be required to carry out any work. We’re happy to discuss preservation requirements with our clients while they’re still in the planning stages, drawing on our extensive experiences in providing replacement windows to heritage properties. It’s always better safe than sorry!
When choosing your materials for replacement windows, cost, durability, appearance and insulation all play a part. uPVC windows are usually the cheapest option and are relatively low maintenance. However, they don’t necessarily look at home on period properties and may even reduce the future resale value. Metal windows are similarly low maintenance and particularly popular with contemporary homeowners looking for clean lines and flowing light. Wooden windows offer a beautiful and traditional finishing touch to your property, but may cost more and require more regular maintenance than their plastic or metal equivalents.
Replacement windows can make your home more energy-efficient
Your replacement windows could be one of the most cost-saving investments that you make for your home. All windows that have been replaced since 1 April 2002 must be supported by a FENSA certificate or a building regs certificate, to show that they legally comply with building regulations.
The benefits of energy-efficient windows include:
- A more comfortable home – energy efficient glazing reduces heat loss through windows and means fewer draughts and cold spots.
- Peace and quiet – not only do they keep the heat in, but energy efficient windows also insulate your home against external noise.
- Reduced condensation – energy efficient glazing reduces condensation build up on the inside of your windows.
