How to pick the right windows – 20 tips from the experts

21st July 2017 |

Double Glazing

When you’re choosing windows, it’s important to be well informed. At Majestic Designs, we’ve compiled a handy list of 25 tips to help you when you’re planning a window replacement.

1. Choose the right style

Like for like is usually a good choice. Or look at other properties in the area for inspiration to see what looks best.

2. Which material is best

uPVC, timber, or aluminium? At Majestic Designs, we recommend uPVC windows for their durability, energy efficiency, and cost effectiveness plus many other benefits.

3. Look for energy efficiency ratings

An all-important factor for 21st century homeowners. All Majestic Designs windows achieve A+14 WER (Window Energy Rating).

4. Check security features

Look for multi-point locking systems, names such as Yale and security testing accreditations.

5. Visit a showroom (try before you buy)

Come along to our Cheddar showroom to test out the smooth functionality of our high-quality windows.

6. Check for customer testimonials

Positive customer reviews speak volumes about a company. Have a look at our Fair Trades reviews to see what our customers are saying.

7. Look for company reputation

Alongside reviews, a company’s reputation is all important. Over the years we have built a loyal customer base which has helped us to establish a respected reputation for quality, efficiency, and outstanding customer care.

8. Ensure you’re guaranteed

We offer a 10-year guarantee on every installation. Peace of mind is important to us and we want you to feel safe in your investment.

9. Choose a complementing colour

Colour preference is an important and personal choice. With so many colours to choose from, perhaps Cream or Chartwell Green for country cottages or Anthracite Grey for modern apartments and townhouses.

10. Think functionality

You probably open your windows every day of the year. A smooth and durable functionality is essential for your replacement windows.

11. Speak to a professional

It’s always worth getting some professional advice. At Majestic Designs, our friendly team of industry experts are always happy to offer advice and provide information about the best option when choosing windows.

12. Do some internet research

In the modern age, all legitimate businesses will have an internet presence. Have a look at our website, and visit our Facebook and Twitter pages.

13. Look at existing installations

Have a look at some of our case studies on our website. Or drive around the local area to view some of our work in-situ.

14. Choose a company who manufacture

When a double glazing company manufacture their own products, they can oversee the entire design and fabrication process. This ensures consistency of quality every time.

15. Third party accreditations

Whether for security, energy efficiency, or installer competence; third party accreditations are a must and highlight a company’s professionalism.

16. Find a FENSA approved installer

All double glazing companies should be FENSA registered. Never compromise on quality and safety for your home. Also make sure their installers and surveyors are all MTC card holders. An MTC card confirms an installer’s on-going competence and compliance with industry practice and Building regulations.

17. How about after sales care

At Majestic Designs, no installation is complete until the customer is entirely happy with the end result.

18. Ask your neighbours

It may be worth doing a bit of local research to find out who your neighbours would recommend. If you know someone nearby who’s recently had their windows replaced; ask them about their experience.

19. Read a brochure

For more information on any of our products request a free brochure. Browse our products and gain inspiration when choosing your new windows.

20. Always be 100% sure

For full peace of mind, always make sure you know exactly what you’re buying, the highest specification, that the company has a good reputation, and what you are getting is value for money.
