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?
The most important part of exploring the options is to seek expert advice, and try not to get caught up in any technical terms that may be thrown at you.

We are delighted with the product supplied. The leaded windows look really good and very much in character with the house and with the previous windows. The installation team have been very helpful and informative throughout and are a credit to your company. An excellent job and done exactly as per your contract program (which makes a nice change from some of the builders we have used in the past!). Thank you.

We just wanted to drop you a note to let you know that we are very happy with both our secondary glazing and the new double glazing that has very recently been fitted by ERW Joinery Ltd in our home. Despite having some reservations about the aesthetics and impact it would have on the ‘period’ of the house, we both think the windows look great. In addition to this we have already noticed that the house feels much warmer and also retains the heat for longer. I thought that the advice you gave us was excellent & the attention to detail from yourself and your workforce was so important in helping us decide about the best products. Could you also please pass on our thanks to the workforce who were professional, hardworking and above all craftsmen. We will certainly be happy to recommend your company to any of our friends who may be considering similar work.
Ms R, Darlington
The work of installing our double glazed units has finished and my wife and I want to tell you what a pleasure it was to have the installers working on that job. They had humour, application, care, consideration and skill and we much enjoyed their time with us. We have thanked them but felt it was important for you to know how grateful we are.
Mr & Mrs W, Eaglescliffe
From our initial inquiry we felt immediately reassured that we were dealing with a company which understood our requirements and which would be able to deliver excellent quality and service.
