In the midst of Summer, its easy to forget that the Autumn and Winter nights are just around the corner. With the chilly breeze, crunchy leaves and roaring fires, the last two seasons of the year are hugely popular with many people, although if energy efficiency in your home is something of a concern, it could be a worry for you and your family.
More often than not, heat loss and draughts are caused by poorly fitted windows and doors, as well as older windows and doors which have simply been uncared for and lost some of their efficiency as the years go by. Although there are some tricks to help with the loss of heat temporarily, including draught excluders, in the long term you’ll need to take extra steps to ensure that your home is efficient and free of chilly draughts.
When looking at the options available to you with your timber windows and doors, the information available can be overwhelming. Do I need to replace or simply repair the windows? What type of glass or glazing should I consider? Is there another more energy efficient option available to me?

Just a quick note to say how fantastic the men were that came to install the windows, they were very polite and friendly and have done a great job. The windows look brilliant and I am very pleased with them.

I love our new doors. They are absolutely gorgeous and exactly what I’d imagined. Every step of the process has been easy, well managed and clearly communicated, which I have come to appreciate is not always the case.
The installation crew that has been here for the past two days has been friendly and highly professional. They did a great job.
Thank you so much for taking the time to walk us through your showroom and workshop back in December. I couldn’t be more pleased with the outcome.
We're not able to carry out installations in your postcode area, however, we can still design and create your door, and you can liaise with a local fitter in your area to install it.
