What to consider when choosing your window or door
We understand that installing new windows and doors is a significant investment and can be daunting. That is why we have listed below all the things that you should consider when choosing the right window and door for your home:
All our aluminium windows and doors are built using one of the world’s most sustainable building materials available: aluminium. Slim, lightweight and very strong, it adds that additional level of security to your home whilst also offering a low maintenance and long lasting solution. Also consider the lifespan of the windows and doors you are choosing. Aluminium is a sturdy and long lasting material that is 100% recyclable, and does not rust or decay over time, whereas other materials can rot or discolour.
Both acoustic and thermal performance are very important when making your decision. Every window system will offer different levels of both; however, there are standard ratings that offer you a guide to the thermal performance. All of our windows and doors offer the highest levels of thermal performance and exceed current building regulations, ensuring that your home is comfortable all year round and reduces your heating bills.
Ensuring that your family is safe and secure in your home is a prime consideration when choosing the right windows or doors. Due to the inherent strength of aluminium, and the locking mechanism we supply with our windows and doors, they are all tested to PAS24 for enhanced security, and most are certified by the ‘Secured by Design’ scheme where applicable.
This is a common problem that can be a result of our homes being warmer, combined with reduced ventilation due to factors such as loft insulation,
carpeted floors, lowered ceiling heights and better draught exclusion, all of which are designed to keep your home warm but also reduce air flow. In the past un-insulated aluminium frames could also lead to condensation, however, this is overcome with today’s modern frames through insulating thermal break technology. Condensation is a ventilation problem but can be reduced through the installation of modern double glazed windows.
These provide a heat barrier with an inner glazed surface that is warmer than the outer pane, thus reducing the formation of condensation. This can be enhanced through the addition of trickle vents, which allow you to improve ventilation when required.
5. Glazing Options
There is a wide range of glazing options to consider. The minimum requirement in the UK for new windows is double glazing but you can also choose triple glazing for higher thermal and acoustic performance; however, for most homes double glazing is sufficient. Our windows and doors are also available in a complete range of glazing styles to complement the age and look of your home. Whether stained, patterned or leaded style glass or
Georgian style bars, the choice is yours.
6. Handles and Fittings
There are many styles of handles and fittings available on the market. When choosing the right one for your windows and doors the look will be a major factor however you need to also consider durability and reliability. Handles are the most used part of a window or door and therefore have to stand the test of time. Our range of high quality handles and accessories ensure your windows and doors look great but are also strong.
When choosing the colour of your windows and doors don’t just settle for white when you can have many different options from our standard range. The difference is that we apply a powder coated finish to our aluminium windows that is guaranteed for 25 years, with minimal maintenance required compared to other materials. All of our finishes are covered by the Qualicoat standard.
8. Life Expectancy
Make sure you ask what guarantees are available on the windows and doors that you are considering. This will vary considerably between material type and manufacturer, however we offer a 10 year guarantee on our window and door systems and a 25 year guarantee (depending on location) on coatings,
giving you peace of mind for many years to come.
The lifespan of aluminium windows can be up to 60 years and far exceeds that of timber or uPVC windows that may last up to 10 and 20 years respectively. In addition, aluminium is the sustainable alternative as it is 100% recyclable.
