What To Think About When Changing Your Windows

June 21st 2018

Replacing your existing windows isn’t something you will do very often; in fact it may be a once-in-a-lifetime job. Your reasoning for doing so could be because your windows have lost their lustre or you just simply want to modernise the appearance of your house. But, before you fully commit to getting them replaced, you need to think about a few things first. Planning Permission considerations A lot of customers that choose Residence 9 do so as they live in a conservation area or Listed Building. There are very strict rules enforced upon such properties and you mustn’t break them! Permission needs to be granted by your Local Authority first before you begin doing any work and the great thing about Residence 9 in particular is that it regularly gets the green light from planners throughout the country. We have even been allowed to integrate Residence 9 into some Grade II Listed Buildings. We can supply detailed information on Residence 9 for any local authorities unfamiliar with the product. Budgeting How much money you have to spend will obviously determine the replacement windows you can afford. Keep in mind that windows like Residence 9 are designed to give you lasting performance and lasting aesthetics, so the investment will go a very long way. Replacement windows will also likely increase the resale value of the property. Thermal performance The modern window buyer wants a replacement window that promises to keep their home comfortable in all weathers and the cost of heating bills down. You need to pay attention to the U-Value provided by the window as this signifies its thermal performance standards. The Residence Collection has an impressive U-Value of up to 0.8 (triple glazed) and 1.2 (double glazed), so when installed, you’re certain to feel warm in winter and just right in summer. You can download a brochure to find out more about why the Residence Collection is the only range of replacement windows you need for your home.
