Posted on 4th April 2023 at 15:00
Wondering if it’s time to get new windows and doors for your home? Here are some tips for working out whether you require replacements.
Why get new windows?
Whether or not you should get new windows depends on several factors, including the age and condition of your current windows, your energy costs, and your budget.
If your windows are old, damaged or draughty, they may be costing you money in energy bills and reducing the comfort of your home. In this case, investing in new, energy-efficient windows can save you money in the long run by reducing your energy costs and improving the value of your home.
On the other hand, if your windows only some of your windows have misted up or the seals have degraded, it’s a good idea to simply have the glazing replaced where necessary.
If you're unsure whether or not to get new windows, it may be helpful to consult with a professional. A window contractor or energy auditor can assess your current windows and provide advice on whether or not new windows are necessary.

What about new doors?
Similarly, there are several reasons why you might consider getting new doors for your home, including:
Improved energy efficiency: New doors can be more energy-efficient than older ones, with better insulation and weatherstripping to prevent draughts and heat loss. This can save you money on your energy bills and improve the comfort of your home.
Enhanced security: New doors often come with updated locking systems and more secure materials (we strongly recommend the Ultion lock), providing better protection for your home, possessions and family members.
Increased kerb appeal: Installing new doors can give your home a fresh, updated look, which can increase its appearance and asking price if you were to sell the property.
Better functionality: If your current doors are old or damaged, they may not function properly. New doors can provide smoother operation, easier access, and better functionality.
Noise reduction: New doors can help to reduce outside noise from traffic or neighbours, creating a quieter and more peaceful environment inside your home.
Reduced maintenance: If you're tired of painting or repairing your old doors, new uPVC or composite doors can provide a low-maintenance solution that requires little upkeep.
