During the winter months, it’s common to wake up to condensation on your windows. As you sleep, the warm air that you breathe out turns to moisture when it hits the cold glass. Condensation can occur at any time of the day – particularly if there are a number of people in one room, you’re using the tumble dryer, or you’re cooking something that’s creating steam. Keeping condensation at bay doesn’t mean leaving the windows open all day (that would be freezing!). There are some simple things you can do every day to stop it forming. Read More
Some of us can find the winter a little dreary, with the dull weather affecting our mood. We may end up longing for just a bit of sun to cheer ourselves up. If a home is dark and feels cramped due to small windows, then this can make us feel even worse – especially if we have to rely on artificial lighting. Installing large double-glazed windows in your home is an ideal way to light up those dark winter months and beat the winter blues once and for all! Read More
Window frames used to require regular maintenance. Before modern materials were available, windows were made from timber, which needed to be regularly treated to stop it swelling, cracking or rotting. Window technology started to develop, and the materials used to make frames grew in quality, with aluminium now also on the market. Then, in the 1980s, uPVC came along and changed everything. This affordable, versatile and widely available material became the ‘go to’ for window frames, and this popularity lives on today. Here’s everything you need to know about maintaining your uPVC windows. Read More
There are a number of reasons that you might require a noise-reduction solution for your home. You may live in a flat that is located at street-level, and be able to hear every time somebody walks past having a conversation. Your home might be on a busy road, so that you are constantly disrupted by traffic noises. You may live on the same street as a lively bar, club or restaurant. Or perhaps a railway line runs parallel to the end of your garden. Whatever it is causing the noise outside your home, it is important to stop it getting into your living space, as you need to be able to unwind and have a bit of quiet in your house. That’s why, if you have single glazing, then you should consider upgrading to double glazing.
Here’s everything you need to know about reducing noise intrusions with double glazing. Read More
All windows get dirty. It is something that cannot be avoided. Even if your windows are made with self-cleaning glass (which has a grime-resistant coating), they are still going to require the occasional wash to keep them sparkling. Thankfully, keeping the glass clean is quick and easy – as is cleaning the frames (uPVC is particularly low-maintenance). You may have noticed, though, that dirt and grime shows up more vividly when the sun is shining, and that it is more difficult to make the glass look clean in the summer, even after washing it. If you were wondering why this is the case, then here is all the information you need. Read More
Tudor architecture is highly recognisable, with its statement black-and-white pinstripe walls, latticed windows, gable roofs and jutting-out upper storeys. Original Tudor properties, built between 1485 and 1603, tend to have a charmingly wonky appearance, which makes them look full of character and history. A lot of authentic Tudor properties are listed or within conservation areas, meaning they are either expensive to buy or cannot easily be renovated, but many modern homes have been influenced by the style – blending the stunning period appearance with high-performance, energy-efficient materials. If you are looking to invest in new windows for your Tudor home, here is everything you need to know before you do so. Read More
Safety is (and always has been) a huge priority for homeowners and commercial property owners. That’s why home and business security is constantly evolving. We are surrounded by no end of high-tech security solutions, such as fingerprint recognition entry systems, CCTV cameras that can be live streamed straight to your smartphone, and all-in-one devices that combine cameras, alarms and heat detectors to ensure you are alerted immediately if anything unusual or suspicious is detected at the property. Yet, such systems are largely ineffective if your building’s main entry points (i.e. windows and doors) are not adequately protected in the first place.
Recently, most windows come with some type of security lock, but there are also additional features you can purchase. Here’s what you need to know. Read More
