Improve Your Property’s Value with Quality Glazing
Upgrading Your Windows and Doors Can Pay Dividends

You’ve probably heard it before – investing in quality glazing can improve the value of your home. It’s a double glazing salesman’s mantra, designed to make you instantly open your wallet, and re-vamp every window in your home.

Yet the cold, hard truth is it’s true... at least the 'adding value' part !

But the big question is not whether an upgrade on your windows and doors can still pay dividends years later (particularly if you choose aluminium); the real question we want to help you answer here is – WHY does quality glazing add value to your property?

Your Property's Perceived Value is Enhanced by Your Glazing Choice

Have you ever driven past a house, and can’t resist a look back? Quality windows that complement the overall look of the house, while adding an extra dimension of sophistication and style, give the exterior that wow factor. Whether the house sports floor to ceiling expanses of glazing, or unusual picture windows, the aesthetic quality is enhanced by the glazing.

This appeal also migrates into the interior. Enjoying a room whose views are not obscured by unsuitable windows adds to the beauty of its dimensions. There’s also the added value of gleaming frames in top condition that increases the overall décor of the room.

Energy Efficient Glazing Can Save You Money

Just think what you could do with a little extra money? ...Take another holiday, re-vamp your garden?

By installing energy efficient windows and doors, the heating can be turned down a notch, which adds up to extra pounds in your pocket. Modern glazing also lets in more natural light, and can keep those overheads turned off for longer. Not only will you love lower utility bills but so do potential buyers.

Create a Comfortable Environment

Effective double glazing can help keep your room at an ambient temperature. It can also bring a room to life, making it a pleasure to be in. Imagine a dark and draughty room, compared to a naturally lit, and pleasantly warm room – which one would you rather be in?

Gain Extra Space in your Home

Certain glazing products, such as folding doors or fameless windows, make your property look bigger than it actually is. Increasing the light into a small or dark room also has this effect. If you want to go one step further, consider a glazed extension such as an orangery or a conservatory – the extra footage can add extra dollars to the value, particularly in cities where every foot of space has a premium price.

Lower Your Ongoing Maintenance Costs with Aluminium Frames

So hands up if you like spending your weekends maintaining your house, rubbing down windowsills, re-painting and all the other chores. No? Chances are potential buyers won’t want to either, so installing maintenance free windows is an easy way to add even more value.

The more desirable a property is to a buyer, the more valuable it will become. A money-saving, maintenance free, aesthetically pleasing home will only increase in value. Even if you are not looking to sell your home, the added benefits quality glazing offers to your way of life will bring extra value, in time saved, and pennies not spent.

Investing in new windows may seem a costly enterprise, but it’s one simple action you can do today that will still have a big pay-off in many years to come.
