TradeMark’s Advice When It Comes To Buying New Replacement Windows

Your guide to getting the perfect replacement windows

It’s easy to take your windows for granted, but you shouldn’t do that because they fulfill so many important roles for your house. 

They help to dictate the appearance of a property, and make it a secure place to live. Windows also give us an outdoor view when we’re indoors, and let the sun come in and illuminate our interiors. 

Now do you have a bit more appreciation for them? 

If you do, it might have made you realise it’s time to get your current windows replaced. 

To help you get the right replacement windows, TradeMark can offer some advice on that:

Window style

Your home will have its own character and you don’t want the addition of new windows to result in the loss of that. Most customers will go for a like-for-like window style, but you don’t have to do that.

There are many varieties of window style, including casement windows (a very traditional and classic design), bay and bow windows (well-suited to period homes) and tilt and turn windows (offer an innovative opening and simplify cleaning). 

It’s always best to choose a style that matches your home’s aesthetic and offers the functionality you want.

Window material

We manufacture our windows with either of two building materials – UPVC and aluminium. While they both provide great thermal qualities, they are very different to one another.

UPVC windows are the cheaper of the two options, but just because they’re low cost, doesn’t mean they’re low quality. They offer prolonged weather resistance and aren’t liable to rotting or corrosion. 

Aluminium windows have amazing sightlines due to the trim framework, and also require minimal maintenance. Finishes are powder-coated onto the frames to give them a lasting and distinctive effect.

Window installer

Do you know who is the best window installer in your area? To find out, search for installers in your area on Google. You need an installer known for providing quality installations over a sustained period. 

Once you have narrowed it down to a few companies, see if you can find any online reviews submitted by their customers, and ask friends and family if they know anything about them.

An installer will also have no hesitation in showing you some examples of their previous work.
