Our Guide to Renovation

Is Spring the best time to update your windows?

Let’s dive into the world of home renovations! With the housing market playing hopscotch and searches for ‘house renovations’ increasing by 170% since Christmas, it seems like more of us are opting to spruce up our home rather than tackle the moving process.

If you’re one of the 32% of UK homeowners planning to roll up your sleeves and get stuck into some serious home improvements this year, then you’ve come to the right place. As experts in all things windows, here is the best time of the year to give your windows the glow-up they deserve!

Spring is the ultimate time for window replacements, offering a golden opportunity for both consumers and trade professionals to make the most of the season’s advantages, and this is why:

Energy Efficiency Made Easy

With the weather finally starting to warm up in spring, homeowners are eager to cut down on cooling costs and make their homes eco-friendlier. As nearly half of UK homeowners look to boost energy efficiency, spring becomes the perfect moment for installers to step in. By offering innovative window and door solutions, installers can help homeowners save on energy bills while shrinking their carbon footprint.

The Residence Collection stands out with its energy-efficient window systems, ensuring improved insulation and reduced energy consumption. All three systems, R9, R7 and R2 achieve an A++ energy rating and a u-value of 1.2 W/m2k with double glazing as standard and up to 0.74 W/m2K with triple glazing.

By opting for a spring installation, homeowners can start enjoying these benefits right away, setting the stage for a more sustainable future.

Freshen Up Your Home’s Look

Spring is all about rejuvenation, inspiring homeowners to breathe new life into their living spaces. Installers play a crucial role in this process, guiding clients towards stylish window and door designs that elevate both aesthetics and functionality.

When it comes to adding a pop of personality to your home, The Residence Collection has got you covered. With 26 colour options spread across three systems, plus a variety of dual-colour choices, there’s something to match every taste and style. This means installers can expand their product range, giving you even more options to create the perfect look for your space. Whether you’re into bold and vibrant hues or prefer something more understated, we’ve got just what you need to make your home uniquely yours!

Not only do we excel in our wide range of colours, but our windows are designed to meet strict guidelines for conservation areas and Grade-II listed buildings, making the planning and installation process a breeze.

Seamless Planning and Execution

As spring brings a surge in renovation projects, installers are gearing up to meet the demand. By fine-tuning scheduling and bolstering resources, installers can ensure smooth operations and timely installations, keeping homeowners satisfied every step of the way. Meanwhile, suppliers and manufacturers are ramping up production to meet the increased demand for window and door products, ensuring a hassle-free supply chain during the peak season.

Not only is spring the perfect time to upgrade your windows, but as the days get warmer and the evenings stretch out, it’s the perfect time to show other elements of your home’s exterior some love. With four bank holidays scattered across spring, including the trusty May bank holiday, which is traditionally the most popular time for home improvements, you’ve got plenty of time to dream big and tackle those outdoor projects.

The mild spring weather is a friend to materials like caulk, making it the prime time to also tackle jobs like:

  • Checking and fixing your roof
  • Giving loose brickwork some TLC
  • Smoothing out those interior walls with some plaster

By syncing up your projects with the seasons, you can minimise disruptions, maximise efficiency, and turn your home improvement dreams into a reality.

In summary, spring isn’t just about flowers blooming—it’s the perfect time for homeowners to invest in energy-efficient window replacements that enhance both comfort and aesthetics. And for installers, it’s a prime opportunity to meet customer needs, boost business, and contribute to a more sustainable future.
