Whether you live in a town, city or suburbia, double glazing has a multitude of positive impacts upon your life, purse and property. Walking down a terraced street for example looking for a starter home that is not a new build can be daunting and disappointing. Old houses built before 1910 are still standing and maybe don’t have damp but you can bet that the windows and doors have been repeatedly replaced in the past 100 years.
Most old houses have a certain style and character that some feel double glazing will detract from and change the whole persona of a home. But it can now be enhanced in looks and security with double glazing. This doesn’t stop at the windows and doors anymore and additional extra rooms are created not just with planning permission, bricks, mortar and a whole lot of effort.
A new, or even second hand conservatory, will give in a brand new room in your home to enjoy with build times ranging from a few days to a week depending on the company. A kitchen extension with extra light and ventilation is far better than the conventional extension. Usually with a flat roof and the look of a square box taking up your garden, an orangery style conservatory will add, some think, to your house or bungalow a look that is very pleasing either from the outside sat in the garden or from the inside looking out.
The old terrace house will also benefit from the warmth kept in and save money on the heating bills too. There are a wide variety of styles to choose from and your old house can be kept and transformed back into its former glory. Sash windows are also available now in UPVC and they can look very traditional. These windows give the impression of a well cared for home and could make the interior intriguing to the passer by. Everyone people watches but there is a large amount of us who house watch too.
Added insulation will also keep the noise down to such a level that it would hardly be noticed. Many old houses are built near industrial estates and often a train line is not too far away. It may rattle the window of the traditional homes but a double glazed house will be much quieter. Excellent if your home is on a bus route.
The added insulation will not only keep the heat in but it will keep the draughts out. And also on another consideration it will reduce the carbon footprint of the property. Less energy needed to heat it means fewer co2 emissions. UPVC frames are usually guaranteed for 25 years plus and take very little in maintenance to up-keep, just make sure the seals are good!
