When you look at the outside of your home what is the first thing you notice? For many people, it is the fact that the windows are beginning to look a little tired and worn. This is perfectly normal – especially when you’ve had the same windows in place for many years – as it is down to natural wear and tear, and constant exposure to the British weather!
The problem is that tired and outdated window frames, whether wooden or uPVC, can allow draughts and even damp into the home, and this causes problems that you may not realise are down to this reason.
One other factor that you need to consider is that old and outdated windows will have an effect on the value of your home. If you are coming to a point where you want to sell, therefore, you should be taking a close look at all the windows around your home. Having new windows fitted is a great way of adding value to your home and also making it more saleable. After all, a viewer is more likely to buy a house that is not going to need new windows than one that is!
For homeowners in the Hertfordshire area you can find a great range at Affordable Windows, and they have a showroom where you can view the windows available, plus a range of other services including window repair and maintenance. You can also ask them to perform a health check on your windows whereby they will give you a full appraisal of what you might need.
Plus a Conservatory
A conservatory is another great addition to your home, and one that will be welcomed by all the family. An extra room that can be used all year-round, conservatories provide a very usable space with plenty of light. Many people use them for simply relaxing in, others as a sitting room for the summer months, and that opening onto the garden is always something to enjoy.
Affordable Windows also have a service for conservatories, so if you think one may benefit your home and way of life, it’s worth talking to the professional and friendly team about the various options, sizes and styles available, and they will be happy to recommend the right one for you and to provide a free no obligation quote.
If you don’t already have double glazed windows, or your current ones seem to be letting out heat, you need to get things underway right now, as this escaping heat could be costing you a great deal of money. Have a chat with the professionals at Affordable Windows now, ask them about all the possibilities available, and you’ll soon find that it is not as expensive as you may think to have new windows, and perhaps a conservatory too!
