4 new window buying tips

Are your windows letting the appearance of your home down? Are they difficult to open or close, or do they let out more heat than they keep in? If so, it might be time to replace them. But what do you need to know when choosing your new windows? Our 4 super helpful new window buying tips give you all the essential information you need.

Visit a local showroom

If your local reputable double-glazing installer has a local showroom, take time to pay them a visit. Visiting a showroom really allows you to see the windows in all their glory. Your local showroom should have a wide selection of window styles, materials and glazing options to choose from. They will also have expert members of staff on hand to explain the benefits of each material. Likewise, they will be able to discuss your project in detail with you and go through the installation process from start to finish. To get the most from your visit, take a list of questions you need answering with you. Visiting the showroom, seeing the products hands-on and meeting the staff, will really allow you to determine all aspects of the quality of the company!

Choose the best local double-glazing installer

It might seem like stating the obvious, but it really is essential to choose an industry-leading installer for your new windows. You might have chosen the most energy-efficient windows on the market, but if they are poorly fitted it will be money down the drain. A poorly fitted window will not protect your home against the elements or outside intruders. When choosing your new windows, look for a company with an established history in your area. Make sure they are a recognised double-glazing installer with Glass and Glazing Federation (GFF) membership. They should also be Certass registered, which means that your new windows and their installation will fully comply with building regulations.  Make sure your windows come with an insurance backed guarantee too!

It pays to fit the best

Aluminium Windows There is merit in the saying “pay cheap pay twice”, especially when it comes to choosing your new replacement windows. Don’t be tempted by low price offers from uncertified companies, if the price seems too good to be true, you can guarantee it will be! Cheap, inferior, double-glazed windows might look lovely when first new, but they will not stand the test of time. When looking for your new windows, paying a little bit more will pay dividends in the long term. Double-glazed windows are available in a variety of materials, uPVC, uPVC wood effect and aluminium, with each of these being energy-efficient and durable. A visit to your local showroom will allow you to see and hear about the benefits of each type.

Add extra value with triple-glazing

If you really want your windows to stand the test of time, and offer you and your family exceptional protection, consider any available upgrades. Replacement windows come with energy-efficient double-glazing as standard. However, if you want supreme energy-efficiency, soundproofing, thermal insulation, and security, then triple-glazing could be perfect for you. Triple-glazing will make your property a warm, safe and peaceful retreat to come home to at the end of the day. With exceptionally low U-values, you will be doing your bit for global warming too!
