Double glazed windows are a long-term solution to ensure your home is comfortable, safe, and sustainable. Sound too good to be true? Read on to find out all the reasons why double-glazed windows and doors are the perfect choice for your new home!
Finding the Style That Suits Your Home
Windows and doors can be more than functional. They can act as statement pieces for your facade and complete the aesthetic of your home inside and out. For this reason, it is important to consider how your new windows will look. You can choose doors and windows that suit the way you live and work in harmony with the style of your home.
For example, you may want to look at swing & slide doors or bifold doors to create an indoor-outdoor feel. These doors work especially well in modern style homes. They create a more minimalist feel with their sleek design. If you are creating a vintage aesthetic, french doors may better suit the look and feel you are going for. At Thermotek Windows and Doors, our double-glazed doors come in a range of styles including:
- Swing and slide

- French; and

Windows also play a role in the style of your home, even more so when accessorised with awnings and curtains. For a modern look, horizontal windows work well. Casement windows may work better for those wanting a more timeless style.

When using uPVC, there is little need for maintenance, unlike timber or aluminium. You receive all the benefits of a wooden texture, with none of the work!

How Size and Angles Affect Your Window Choices
The style of windows you choose needs to work with you and your home, not against it. For example, awning and casement windows open outwards. So, you need to be sure there is no outside obstruction. For example, if there are trees or other buildings close by, ensure you can open your windows around them. Or instead, choose a style that does not open outwards. Other considerations are height and size. Install necessary handles at an appropriate height. This is so you can open and close your windows with ease.
When choosing the doors to use in your home, space is sometimes overlooked. If you are opting for swing doors, be sure to consider the space needed to open and close the door. Also, consider how it might eat into the space available for furniture. If you are looking to create a cosy space, sliding doors do the job well without creating unusable space.
Creating a Comfortable Space
Your windows and doors are responsible for temperature control in general. They act as insulators for your home. Single pane windows are often used in homes and offer little to no protection to the elements. Are you looking for a way to increase insulation and temperature control? You need double glazed windows and doors. Not only do they increase the energy efficiency in your home. But they also help to create a quiet, safe space for you to live and work. uPVC double glazed windows help keep money in your pocket.
