Home Improvements- Why Now Might Be the Best Time

This article was published on September 10, 2023

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.

Rising Trends in Renovations

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.

Why Timber Windows and Doors?

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:

  • Efficiency exceeding even triple glazing
  • Soundproofing that’s perfect for properties in bustling areas
  • A design thin enough for period properties and those under the UK’s stringent planning restrictions
  • Environmentally-friendly attributes, aligning with the UK’s sustainability goals

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.

Seeing is Believing: Our Middlesbrough showroom allows you to appreciate the intricate craftsmanship behind each window and door. We’re a family run business that values incredible attention to detail and the best customer service.
