Debunked: Myths About Window Installation
Before you begin to think about having your windows replaced, you may have heard some myths about window installation. As with anything we do at Majestic, we want to ensure that you have all the information you need to make the best choice for your home. We’re taking a look at some of the common myths around window installation, and putting you on the right track…
DIY Window Installation Is A Good Way To Save Money
Stop! This is a terrible idea. Windows should only be installed by those with the correct training and accreditation. Although you may be aiming to save money, installing your own windows could lead to having to spend additional money to fix mistakes that arise from ill-fitting frames such as condensation and draughts.
The only way to ensure that your windows are installed correctly is to use an accredited installer. Majestic Designs is FENSA registered, and all of our installers and surveyors are MTC accredited, which covers both practical and theoretical knowledge for installation. MTC accreditation must be renewed every 5 years in order to ensure that all knowledge is up to date.
At Majestic Designs we fully employ all of our window installers. Unlike those operating alone, our team will not be working to finish a job quickly, but instead will be working to ensure that your windows are fitted to the highest standard.
I Can’t Have Modern Windows In My Period Property
If you have never had your windows replaced before then you may not know that there are many different types of window from which to choose. Whether you’re interested in an energy efficient option, looking for low maintenance or replacing windows in a period property, you will want to familiarise yourself with the types of windows on offer. For instance, you may feel as though a sash window is best suited to your period property, however a casement window in a colour finish could offer a stylish and energy efficient option for your home.
Not only is Majestic Designs an expert in installing windows, but we also produce all of our windows at our state of the art factories in Cheddar. We know that choosing windows can feel like an overwhelming task, which is why we offer access to a friendly Majestic Designs representative who can advise on the many styles of windows you can choose from.
You Can’t Replace Windows In Winter
This is a common misconception, but it isn’t true. If you’re looking to replace your windows, it can be done at any time of the year, including the chillier months. This may be especially useful if you’re looking to reduce your heating bills and make your home more energy efficient.
Our in house team of installers, employed by us, are specially equipped to replace your windows in winter, and once the job is done, you will begin to see immediate savings on your heating bills. Choosing A+14 double glazing from Majestic Designs will help you prevent heat loss, so you can reduce your energy bills and stay environmentally-friendly.
You Can’t Change Window Styles
When renovating your home, you may have put your mark on everything except the windows. Where standard white uPVC windows are installed, you might want something that better fits the character of your home. Whether you’re looking for a unique colour or a wood effect, you might be surprised with the number of options available to update your window styles.
Whatever colour you decide, at Majestic Designs we offer a range of coloured window frames with a first class quality of finish. All of our uPVC coloured windows have a highly durable finish. The colour won’t fade, peel, or rot and will stay looking bright and fresh for years to come. When you want an authentic traditional look combined with a touch of personality, you can count on coloured windows from Majestic Designs.
We want to make the process as simple and straightforward for you as possible and our experts will be happy to help with any questions you might have.
