Residence Q&A- Things to Consider When Updating Your Windows

Things to Consider When Updating Your Windows

So, you are thinking about replacing your windows in your home. Whether it’s because you need to replace them because they are worn out, or just because you’re going for a fresh new look, here are some things consider going forward with your decision.

  1. Do I need Planning Permission?
    If you live in a Conservation Area or a Listed Building, finding out the rules and regulations in regards to replacement windows is vital. You must obtain permission from your Local Authorities before commencing work on your home. R9 has been accepted in Conservation Areas all over the country and now even accepted in Grade II listed buildings. If your Local Authorities require you to submit specific details about Residence 9, contact us and we will be happy to provide you with the relevant documents
  1. What do I base my budget on?
    The amount that you’re willing to invest in your new windows is a big factor to consider. It’s generally a lifetime investment so spending a little more on a higher end product like The Residence Collection will ensure your investment is quality assured.
  1. What’s the best energy efficiency for me?
    The U-vales f your windows can not only massively affect the insulation of your home, but can help you save money by reducing energy bills and reduce outside noise. The Residence Collection has U-Vales of 0.8 (triple glazed) and 1.2 (double glazes). It’s certified window energy A+ and accommodates the most thermally and acoustically efficient glazing, keeping you cosy in the winter and warm in the summer with the added benefit of helping contribute to lower energy bills.

The Residence Collection is here to help you along the way.
