Replacing the windows in your property represents a substantial investment which requires a great deal of thought and extensive research. Window openings and frames are an integral part of the design of a building, giving it character and proportion and inappropriate replacements can be very damaging to the overall appearance of a building. However, new windows can transform the appearance, security and comfort of your home and, if accomplished with sensitivity and understanding, can represent a significant improvement which can increase the value of your property.
Many period properties have been designed with thick walls and small windows to keep them warm in the winter and cool in the summer. Whilst these qualities help them to be energy efficient throughout the year in terms of the cost of heating or cooling the environment, rooms can be dark and gloomy particularly during the winter. Roof lanterns and bi-folding doors present a practical and good looking solution to these problems.
