Are your doors and windows a little old and shabby? If so, it’s worth thinking about replacing them. After all, top-quality new windows help to maintain the comfort, security and value of your home.

Points to Consider Before You Visit
Think about your basic requirements. This helps us and you to work out exactly what you need. Here are some points to get you started.
1. What’s Your Budget?
We aim to give you the very best products for your requirements and budget, so we need a rough idea of how much you want to spend at the outset. Then we can tailor the best solution for your home and your pocket.
2. What’s Your Style?
Do you fancy a new look for your home, or would you prefer to stick with the existing style? You may already have a clear idea and possibly some pictures from magazines or the internet, so bring those with you. If you’re not sure, don’t worry. Our team have all the experience you need to help you decide what’s best for you.
3. Do You Need More Natural Light or Ventilation?
Larger sections of glass let in more daylight and a better view of the outside, making the interior feel more spacious and cheerful.
The way your windows open also affects how much fresh air you get. If your house is feeling a little stuffy why not consider an option with trickle vents? Even in cooler weather, a certain degree of ventilation is always a good idea.
4. Is it Time to Beef Up Security?
Top-level security is a major reason for installing new windows. If you have any doubts about the strength and reliability of your existing windows and doors, you should definitely be thinking about replacing them.
New installations come with multipoint locking systems and superior-quality glass. Potential intruders will have a tough, if not impossible, task if they try to break in.
5. Do You Need to Improve Energy Efficiency?
Draughty old windows make your home cold, miserable and expensive to heat. If your bills are too high and the atmosphere is too chilly it’s time to replace them.
What Happens Next?
During our initial consultation, we’ll tell you about the installation process including when the work can begin and how long it’ll take. We’ll also discuss your payment options.
At this stage, the overall cost will be a ballpark figure. After your initial chat, our surveyor will visit your home to carry out a thorough assessment. They’ll also advise you on any features or modifications that may be necessary and clearly explain all the details.
From there we’ll calculate the final costs of the whole project including all materials and labour.

Rest assured we are fully compliant with all building regulations and legal requirements. If any additional permissions are needed (if your home is listed or in a conservation area for example) we’ll guide you through that as well.
We’ll always be available to answer your questions along the way.
