Why is it Important to Choose the Right Windows?
Over the years, the design of windows has changed a lot. Choosing to install windows that don’t fit with the age of the property can make them look out of place and can potentially reduce the value of your home. You’ll find that potential buyers will usually pay a bit more for period appropriate windows, and they will generally look more visually striking, catching people’s eyes!
When it comes to choosing which style windows you have, there are a few things to think about. Different windows will serve different purposes, especially with light, ventilation and the overall style of the house.
Common Window Styles:
- Casement Windows – These are hinged on either the left or the right and will allow the glass panes to swing out like doors, providing excellent ventilation.
- Sash Windows – these feature two sashes. The top window will remain stationary and the bottom one will slide up and down.
- Fixed Pane Windows – these will not open but can be a great increasing light in your home.
- Timber Windows – Sometimes, wood can be a great material choice for a window frame. They’ll fit in with the history of a building, bringing character and a unique finish. Timber windows will also have a long lifespan and will be more environmentally friendly than plastic windows.
- Aluminium Windows – Aluminium windows can be a great way to bring a sleek, chic look to your home. They’re a trendy choice, inherently strong and also very low maintenance.
- uPVC – uPVC is a strong form of plastic, which has become a very popular material throughout the construction industry in recent years. It offers excellent performance and durability, only requiring a small amount of maintenance.
