If you are looking to replace your windows with double glazed units, there are many options. It isn’t just the opening styles, of which there are many, you also have a choice of materials, which include UPVC, aluminium and of course, timber. Both UPVC and aluminium are maintenance free, yet if you live in a period property, you might prefer to have timber windows, which would be more in keeping with the overall look of the property. The composite material comes in a range of attractive colours, with a timber grain finish that is very attractive, and as the units are made to measure, they will fit perfectly.
There are many different opening styles to choose from, which include the following:
- Traditional side opening
- Tilt and turn
- Sliding units
- Sliding sash type
When searching for a double-glazing contractor, it is preferable to ask for a home visit, which allows you to carefully examine all of your options. A double glazed windows supplier in Enfield, for example, would arrange for a representative to visit at a convenient time, and with their design expertise, you can decide on the perfect design that best complements the property.
For older properties, you could opt for a diamond or square leaded design, or perhaps white Georgian panes which are very popular, and by looking for a company that focuses on aesthetics, you can be sure to choose a suitable design with the right type of window openings.
