10 Reasons You Should Upgrade Your Windows This Winter
Have you been thinking about upgrading your windows this winter? Are you unsure about the benefits of upgrading and want to learn more? As winter approaches and the temperature drops, now is a good time to install new windows to benefit your home. They can enhance energy efficiency, improve security, and make your home look fantastic.
Good insulation is essential during the cold winter months if you are to benefit from cost-effective solutions and save on energy. We recommend using an experienced company to install your new windows. At Majestic Designs, all our windows have an A+14 energy rating to provide optimal energy efficiency. We also take care to ensure minimal disruption to your home during the installation process.
uPVC and Aluminium Windows
Both uPVC and aluminium windows are now available in a range of styles to suit all types of property. uPVC windows have become popular amongst homeowners due to their durability and outstanding performance. They can hold up even in the harshest weather, as we experience in Somerset during the winter months. There is no risk of rotting, rust, or warping, making them an excellent choice for your home.
At Majestic Designs, aluminium windows are robust and practical, designed with security and longevity in mind. They are a popular choice for homeowners, offering outstanding levels of thermal efficiency and durability. Due to the robust nature of the material, aluminium allows for a slimmer frame meaning more glass to see outside. This means more natural light can enter your home, creating a pleasant living space. With modern and elegant styles, aluminium windows are a wonderful choice.
At Majestic Designs, we engineer all our aluminium and uPVC windows in our state-of-the-art factories in Cheddar, Somerset. They are built to last with a high energy rating and multi-point locking system to ensure optimal security for your home.
Ten Benefits to Upgrading Your Windows
Enhanced Energy Efficiency
With upgraded windows, your home will benefit from improved energy efficiency and reduced heating costs. With the rising cost of living and higher energy bills, now is a good time to upgrade and bring those costs down.
Increased Comfort and Warmth
Upgrading your windows can create a more comfortable living environment by eliminating drafts and cold spots. The extra warmth through improved insulation will make your home feel cosy and warm during the winter.
Enhanced Natural Light
Due to the robust nature of aluminium, the material allows for larger glass panes which lets more light into the home. This creates a brighter and more inviting atmosphere.
Upgrading your windows can help block out external noise and create a quieter more peaceful indoor atmosphere in your home.
Double glazed windows from Majestic Designs are internally beaded for enhanced security. Fitted with a multi-point locking system as standard, you will benefit from upgrading your windows this winter.
Enhanced Kerb Appeal
Upgrading your windows can improve the exterior aesthetics of your home. You can now choose dual colours, so the inside of your window is white, whilst the outside is your choice of colour. This is great if you want to add a pop of colour to match the aesthetics of your home. Making your home more stylish can improve kerb appeal.
Increased Home Value
Installing new windows is a great investment for your home, potentially increasing the market value of your property. Buyers are more likely to feel confident and have peace of mind if your home is upgraded which is a good selling point.
Many modern uPVC windows have a lifespan of decades and do not fade from UV sun exposure. They are also weather resistant, ensuring their colour and finish lasts.
Traditional windows usually require regular upkeep due to the nature of the material. Timber framed windows require a fresh coat of paint every few years, whereas modern uPVC windows do not require so much treatment. They still must be cleaned with a damp cloth and their hinges maintained, but they are quite easy to upkeep which saves you time.
With upgraded energy-efficient windows, you can benefit from a greener and more sustainable home. By reducing our carbon footprint, we can help protect the planet as a whole and every little bit helps which is why energy efficiency is important.
As manufacturing processes have advanced, modern windows are now available in a range of colours and styles to suit your aesthetic needs. If you are looking to upgrade your windows and create a beautiful appearance, modern uPVC or aluminium windows are an excellent choice.
Casement windows are the most consistently popular window choice for UK homeowners. While the look of a casement window has not changed much over the years, the materials used to make them have evolved. They are a versatile window that fit in almost all types and style of home, both modern and traditional.
uPVC sash windows have a classic design that will maintain the traditional character of a home. You can choose an attractive timber effect aesthetic, whilst still benefiting from the material of modern uPVC.
If you choose bay windows, your home will benefit from more natural light in your living space. Bay windows are an iconic symbol of Britain’s traditional Victorian era but can be installed in a variety of aesthetically different properties.
