In today’s evolving property landscape, many homeowners face the pivotal question: to move or to improve? With the pressures of the cost-of-living crisis and increasing mortgage rates, the answer for many, leans towards renovation. Investing in home improvements, especially with timber windows and doors, could be a game-changer for your property. Replacing your windows and/or doors can result in increased energy efficiency, resulting in lowered energy bills.
This article looks at the trend of renovation and why choosing timber windows and doors might be the best option for you and your family.
Data from UK-based Together’s report, ‘Opportunities in Challenging Times,’ underscores a pronounced trend among homeowners favouring home improvements. Energy efficiency and the desire to rejuvenate spaces have emerged as compelling motivations.
With rising mortgage rates and uncertainty for the future, home renovation tends to be the more prudent decision to ensure financial stability. It also puts you in the best position to sell, once the housing market settles.
There’s nothing quite like the beauty of wood. Inviting, charming and environmentally friendly, there has been an upsurge in people opting for timber windows and doors to maximise the aesthetic appeal of their home.
Choosing timber windows and doors from us offers a multitude of benefits:
Customisation: With 150 colour options and full personalisation available, your windows and doors can effortlessly complement you and your home’s unique style.
Long-Term Guarantee: we provide a robust 30-year guarantee on fungal rot and decay, exemplifying our commitment to quality and craftsmanship.
Increased Energy Efficiency: the cutting-edge vacuum glazing technology, which has gained traction in the UK, especially in period properties, offers insulation superior to traditional methods:
Value Addition: As pointed out by an article by This Is Money, quality timber windows can indeed enhance a home’s value in the UK, setting homeowners up for favourable prospects should they choose to move in the future. It’s also really important to ensure your windows are timber if you live in a conservation area or live in a listed property. Installing alternatives may actually be detrimental to the value of your home once you look to sell.

I was delighted with the installation process. Steve and Tony worked very hard and took a lot of care around our house. My husband thought we would end up having to redecorate but was amazed that the windows looked like they had always been there. We are delighted and have had a number of positive comments about them. Thank you.

Workmen cleaned up any mess as they went along and left no mess what so ever at the end. They were diligent and I would certainly recommend this company and I intend on using ERW again.

I remember visiting your showroom and saying that I wish my windows could be as good as the ones on your display and they are! I am absolutely delighted with them. They have transformed the front of my house. All installation staff involved were extremely polite and professional in their approach. They treated my home with respect and ensured that they cleaned thoroughly after. Please pass on my thanks to them for the quality of work they have done. It has been much admired by so many people, so I will not hesitate to recommend your firm in the future.
