How to choose windows and doors for coastal homes
At Majestic Designs we have been helping homeowners across the beautiful coastal county of Somerset choose and install the best, most efficient and long-lasting windows for over 20 years.
Our expert home improvement company is based in Cheddar, one of the most stunning spots in the UK and our surrounding environment is both breathtaking and varied. From the large sandy beaches of bustling seaside towns like Weston-super-Mare and Burnham-on-Sea to the wild and rugged beauty of St. Audrie’s Bay and Kilve Beach near Minehead. The Somerset coast is blessed with sand, shingle, cliffs, sparkling seas and an abundance of nature.
As a long-standing, local company with years of expertise we absolutely understand that being close to nature and to the sea, means that Somerset properties sometimes need specialist care to keep them in tip-top condition.
This is particularly true when it comes to choosing the right windows and doors for a home that sits on or near the coast. If you are lucky enough to live in Brean, Berrow, or Uphill, you’ll certainly appreciate the spectacular scenery the North Somerset coast has to offer. You’ll also understand how challenging the weather can be at all times of the year. The salty air, windy conditions and frequent rain, that are part of our coastal location, can be damaging to seaside homes over time.
If you are looking to make some home improvements that protect and enhance your coastal home, our expert team at Majestic Designs can help.
What are the Best Windows for Coastal Homes?
Over the 20+ years we’ve been installing windows and doors across Somerset, we’ve learned a lot about what works for different properties in varying environments. We’ve installed every type of home improvement solution using a wide range of materials and finishes to achieve a variety of weather-proofing results.
From Portishead to Minehead, we’ve helped thousands of property owners living near the Bristol Channel to create warmer, more energy efficient homes and buildings with windows and doors that are both attractive and long-lasting.
Aluminium window options are increasing in popularity and can absolutely work in coastal settings. We’ve installed many and the results are fantastic, with materials and finishes now far more efficient and cost-effective than they used to be.
However, for homes near the sea that face a continual battle with the elements, particularly in the autumn and winter months, we’ve found that uPVC casement windows offer the best value for your money.
If you want results that look great year-round, are efficient and offer long-lasting protection for your coastal home, uPVC casement windows are almost certainly the best choice you can make.
Majestic Designs manufacture and install some of the most robust, secure, and weather-proof windows available on the market today. Their insulating uPVC frames eliminate draughts and vastly improve heat retention. The durable uPVC exterior is weather resistant and performs well over many years with virtually no deterioration in quality. They are A+14 energy rated for a warmer home and come with a comprehensive 10-year insurance backed guarantee as standard.
Internally beaded for additional security and with multi-point locking systems as standard, uPVC windows offer all round better safety and longevity. You will also be able to choose from a wide selection of styles and colours to match the unique aesthetic of your property and create an attractive, authentic look that will last for years.
At Majestic Designs we have an experienced lead team of MTC registered and FENSA accredited installers who always go above and beyond to ensure that our customers are fully satisfied with their installation.
Are Composite Doors Right for Coastal Homes?
If you live on the coast and are looking to change or improve an entrance door into your home, our expert recommendation is that you choose a composite door for both durability and curb appeal.
By far the best solution for homes situated by the coast, a composite door provides excellent levels of security and thermal efficiency helping to keep your home warmer and safer.
With a thermoplastic skin, composite doors offer a greater weather resistance and provide years of protection from the elements. They even withstand the damage caused by abrasive winds containing sand and salt which can often erode weaker materials far more rapidly.
Composite doors come in a broad selection of colours, styles and finishes and require minimal maintenance, which is a huge benefit for busy homeowners. They can reduce your heating bills by offering better insulation and energy efficiency as well as potentially lowering your home insurance premium due to their superior security credentials and locking systems.
Majestic Designs is an official installer of Endurance composite doors, a leader in the market and offering optimal security, thermal insulation and weather resistance. With 60 potential design options, you are guaranteed to find the right fit for your property.
Need to change your weather-beaten door and install something that will look great and last for years? A composite door is the best choice for your home and your bank balance.
