There is perhaps more to windows than meets the eye, and for many of us, we just accept the windows we have in the home we buy and tend not to look at alternatives. But you can change the whole character and feeling of a property just through changing the windows, though there is little point in replacing new double glazed windows just because you don’t like the colour or style as replacement windows definitely aren’t cheap. So perhaps when you come to move home, or are thinking of having new replacement windows installed, then understanding what can be achieved with the two principal options available will help considerably.

As you can see from the above, there are a number of factors to be taken into account when choosing your windows. On top of this you then have to decide on which style and design you want, ideally one that is in keeping with your property’s character. A good piece of advice is to go for a wander around a part of town that contains properties similar to your own and have a look at which style of window you prefer the most and which you think looks best. Don’t be afraid to knock on the door and ask the owners where they go their windows from!
