The Benefits of New Windows & Doors
There is little doubt that refurbishing your property with new windows and doors can bring an array of benefits for you and your family. From dramatically improving energy efficiency ratings and saving you the hassle of costly energy bills to securing your home with modern, multi-point locking mechanisms, windows and doors play a vital role in day-to-day living.
There have been great advancements and technological strides in the manufacturing sector in recent years, resulting in improved energy efficiency, better security and more stylish aesthetics. With the cooler months just around the corner, there’s never been a better time to update your windows and doors – especially if you’re already reaching for the thermostat.
So what are the benefits of new windows and doors? And when do you need to replace them?
Why do I need new windows and doors?
Choosing to refurbish your home with new windows and doors can drastically improve your quality of life by keeping you warmer during the winter months and cooler during the summer. This is especially pertinent if your home is an older style which may be compromising the thermal retention rating of your property.
Over time, the condition of your windows and doors will deteriorate and there will come a time when it is absolutely necessary to replace them. Failing to replace worn-out, faulty and/or outdated windows and doors can result in a home more susceptible to the effects of adverse weather, including water and air leaks, which can ultimately compromise the comfort of your property, increase your energy bills and wreak havoc through your home. While you could run a dehumidifier or take a cheaper, more DIY approach such as attempting to block drafts, it’s a much better idea to secure your home before the full impact of any adverse weather takes hold.
Investing in new windows and doors ultimately saves money in the long run and can yield an excellent return on investment when it comes to selling your home in future. Modern windows and doors are also made of more durable materials, with your choice of uPVC, aluminium or a resilient composite blend.
So what are the benefits of new windows and doors?
It goes without saying that if windows and doors are old, cracked, warping and/or damaged in any way, unsolicited entry into a home is immediately made easier. In addition, poorly functioning windows and doors can also present a safety risk. Fortunately, new windows and doors are stronger and more durable. They are also resistant to forced entry and are engineered using cutting-edge technologies that boost home security.
Lowers energy bills
As previously mentioned, new windows and doors have better energy efficiency ratings than older styles. In particular, new windows have double glazing, internal beading and innovative thermal break seals that can dramatically improve the thermal retention ratings of a home, as well as eliminates heat transfer and drafts.
Reduced noise pollution
Homeowners often notice a significant decrease in noise pollution after installing new windows and doors. This is because new windows and doors are engineered with modern insulation which can dramatically reduce the amount of exterior sound entering your home.
Older-style windows and doors require greater upkeep and regular repairs. However, new windows and doors require little upkeep and often boast a longer lifespan. This is because the hardware is constructed from sturdier components that require fewer repairs and last longer.
Improve kerb appeal
Last but not least, replacing your older style windows and doors can instantly boost the kerb appeal of your property. This is a direct result of better energy efficiency and security, as well as aesthetics. New windows and doors come in all kinds of shapes, styles, designs and colours, and can be easily tailored to match your own individual taste as well as the aesthetics of your property.
