Homeowners normally know when it is time to replace the majority, if not all, the windows in their homes. However, a common question that arises is: ‘should I replace all the windows at once?’ Well… there isn’t a right or wrong answer to this; some may not want to spend all the money at once and would prefer to replace windows one by one as they start to tire, and others would rather the peace of mind that all their windows are incredibly thermally-efficient and have all the latest security features. However, when it comes to saving you money, it is more cost-effective to have all your windows replaced at once rather than one at a time.
Our professional team of experts can advise the best option for you and give you a no-obligation quote based on your specific needs. With no pressure, you can understand the entire process and make an informed decision that works for you.
When should you replace your windows?
There are three main reasons to why homeowners replace their existing windows: security, performance, and kerb appeal. You can see, feel, and sometimes even hear when your windows are getting old. Damaged seals, draughts, higher energy bills, cracks, and excessive noise are all signs that it’s time to replace a window or two!
Warped and damaged windows allow an excessive amount of cold air, moisture, and insects into your home, and nobody wants a draughty home or to become infested with spiders or covered in mould! A good way to know if your windows need to be replaced is to always keep a close eye on your energy bills; you will notice quite quickly if there is a large increase.
Our windows are A-rated as standard and can achieve impressive U-values of 1.2 W/m2k. A U-value is a measurement of the rate of heat loss suggesting how well your windows are at retaining precious heat inside. The lower the U-value the better the thermal performance of the window. With multi-chambered frames and either triple or double glazing, you will notice the increase in warmth and the decrease of your bills almost instantly!
Windows play a vital part in keeping your home secure and you and your family safe. From the glazing, frames, and locking features, your window should be designed to keep intruders out. Old windows can leave your home vulnerable to burglars and you could even be targeted due to how easy it could be to get through your windows! With 30K crimes reported in East London, you can have complete peace of mind, as we have a range of PAS 24 security hardware that includes; multi-point locks, key locking handles, and internal glazing beads.
Nobody wants their home to look worn, uninviting, or gloomy. Windows are usually one of the first things you will notice when your home starts to show signs of aging, so replacing them can completely rejuvenate its appearance. The choice is limitless, with all RAL colours available and a range of textures, you can restore your home’s charm. We have metallic and woodgrain finishes available, and with dual colour frames, you can design your windows to match your interior and exterior.
What style should I replace my windows with?
Choosing the right combination of frames and glazing is particularly important when it comes to replacing your windows. Not only do you want them to be to your personal taste, but they should complement your home’s unique characteristics too. Traditional homes in locations such as Greenwich suit classic colours such as Chartwell green and cream, whereas modern properties in Canary Warf or Stratford suit darker tones, like Anthracite Grey and black. Our striking styles include casement windows, bay windows, sliding sash, tilt & turn, and flush sash windows, and can be designed to look as contemporary or as traditional as you please!
