WHAT ADVANTAGES DO UPVC WINDOWS AND UPVC DOORS OFFER OVER TIMBER ONES?
Both uPVC windows and uPVC doors have a lot going for them. They’re highly energy efficient, helping keep your home nice and warm via their multi-layered frames, which reduce heat loss. When partnered with well-rated double glazing, they can really do wonders for your energy bill, reducing the amount you pay significantly over years to come. On top of this, they’re extremely affordable and offer a clean and modern aesthetic. If used to replace old and worn timber frames, they can add value to your property.
Finally, uPVC windows and uPVC doors are very secure, and much more difficult to break than their timber alternatives. And even if they were to suffer damage, it’s easier to conduct doors repairs and window repairs with uPVC products than it is with timber ones. Add all of the aforementioned points up and you have extremely well-rounded products that won’t break the bank. It’s easy to see why they’re so popular among both domestic and commercial clients in the Leeds area.
WHY MIGHT I CHOOSE COMPOSITE DOORS OVER UPVC DOORS?
While composite doors are slightly more expensive than uPVC doors, they’re generally more secure and solid. So if home security is your number one priority, perhaps because you live in an area of Leeds with a high level of burglaries/breaking and entry, then you might want to give them some serious thought. Their sturdier build quality also means you’re less likely to require door repairs with composite doors than with uPVC doors.
However, modern uPVC doors, especially when fitted with double glazing, are a lot more secure than those of yore. So we find that our Leeds clients are more likely to choose composite doors for the high-end aesthetic they offer. Many find they look like more of a “premium” option than uPVC doors. This is highly subjective, of course. Either way, whether it’s for the added security or their beautiful looks, composite doors are a great investment.
WHAT BENEFITS CAN DOUBLE GLAZING AFFORD MY LEEDS HOME?
There are a number of reasons why double glazing has become seen as a “must have” home improvement by savvy persons not just in Leeds, but all over the UK. The extra pane and space between the two help trap in heat making your home easier to keep warm during the winter months. Double glazing is also a lot harder to break, meaning it’s somewhat accident/burglar-proof. Another fantastic benefit that double glazing offers is noise insulation. If you live on a particularly busy Leeds road, or you have noisy neighbours, then double glazing can really help you retain your sanity!
HOW MUCH DO CONSERVATORIES TYPICALLY ADD TO THE VALUE OF LEEDS PROPERTIES?
This has a lot to do with the area of Leeds our clients live in, as well as the type and size of conservatories people choose (we build Edwardian conservatories, Victorian conservatories, gable end conservatories and lean-to conservatories). However, research conducted by Phil Spencer (The Telegraph’s property expert) found that small conservatories can add around 7% to your property’s value, while larger conservatories add around 11%. Features that can up the value conservatories add to your property include double glazing, French doors and uPVC windows. Whatever they end up adding, you can rest assured it’ll be a sum that’s nothing to be sniffed at!
WHAT COMMON WINDOW REPAIRS AND DOOR REPAIRS DO YOU CARRY OUT AROUND LEEDS?
Common window repairs we carry out include mending the handles/sliding lock mechanisms of uPVC windows, which might prevent you opening them properly. Other standard window repairs include replacing hinges to help them close, or replacing rubber seals if they’ve shrunk and are showing gaps (which can compromise your insulation). Common door repairs include replacing locks (multi point or cylinders) if you’re struggling to open them up. Other common door repairs we carry out around Leeds are conducted via a general “service”, which might involve realigning your door so it can shut or lock properly again.
WHY DO YOUR CLIENTS CHOOSE FRENCH DOORS OVER OTHER STYLES?
It’s really down to individual preference, but many find that French doors ooze a certain “classic” charm. They can also make a space appear more airy and light as they open wider than traditional uPVC doors and composite doors do, helping integrate indoor and outdoor spaces, or creating a seamless transition between two indoor spaces.
French doors are also seen as an attractive feature to have in your home, potentially making it more appealing to Leeds house hunters. It’s worth keeping this in mind if you think you might sell-up in years to come, as the investment may end up paying for itself. We urge you to come in and take a look at the French doors we have on offer, as the best way to visualise how they could transform your home for the better is by seeing them in the flesh!
Remember, we’re the Leeds area’s top choice for everything from new conservatories, French doors, uPVC windows, and composite doors, to uPVC doors, door repairs, window repairs and double glazing. So give Leeds Windows a call on 0113 293 7121 if you should require any of them!
