Windows are an integral part of any building, providing natural light, ventilation, and insulation. However, over time, they can deteriorate, causing a range of issues, from drafts and energy loss to aesthetic problems. If your windows are showing signs of wear and tear, now is the time to consider booking window renovation work. In this blog, we’ll explore why.
As we’re moving into spring, many of us are glad that the days are starting to get longer and the weather is beginning to pick up. Whilst this is a grateful reprieve from the harshness of winter, it’s also a time that people forget about their home renovation work. Booking work to be completed in the winter may be a cheaper option, but setbacks can occur due to the poorer weather conditions. In addition, you have to prepare yourself for an increase in heating bills in the run up to the work being undertaken.
Spring is the perfect time to book in work as the weather tends to be drier and more temperate. This means your home isn’t uncomfortably cold whilst work is being undertaken on restoring your windows. It’s also more energy efficient, as you won’t have to be spending a fortune to heat your home once the tradesmen have left.
As with most trades, there is usually a lead time for work to be completed. Booking in work now means: 1. You have more control over when work can be completed as and 2. You can guarantee that work will be completed before the cooler weather descends once again.
It’s always prudent to speak to any companies you wish to work with to see what their lead time is well in advance of when you want/need the work completed. Forward planning means more opportunities for the work to be done in a timescale which suits you.
One of the most significant benefits of upgrading your windows is the increase in energy efficiency. Old, worn-out windows can let in drafts, allowing heat to escape in the winter and cool air in the summer. By replacing them with new, energy-efficient windows, you can reduce your energy bills and help the environment.
Old windows can look dated and unsightly, detracting from the overall appearance of your property. By renovating them, you can give your home or business a fresh, updated look. This not only adds kerb appeal, but can increase your home’s value. This is especially important if you’re looking to sell in the next few years.
Planning any renovation work to your home well in advance is always the most prudent approach to take. This means you are able to work with your preferred contractor. Many companies have lead times which means you won’t be able to get the work completed in an incredibly short notice period.

Thanks so much for excellent service, so happy with new door, it’s exactly how I wanted it to look . Everyone at ERW was so helpful and informative from start to finish, I will definitely recommend to all friends and family.
Whilst not the cheapest quote, the presentation and professional approach persuaded me to use ERW. Standard of work and communication to let us know when the works will be conducted were excellent. Stain glass windows are perfect match and look excellent.

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.

We were desperate to find a company that would do a quality job with quality products. Although we had very high quality windows fitted in part of the house, that company couldn’t fit them. We are so happy with every aspect of the work done by ERW from start to finish and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them to anyone who asked.
