We are proud to have helped many of our customers achieve their renovation goals, without having to compromise on quality, performance or style.

Up to 80% of energy loss occurs around the edge of a window. Translated into cost, inefficient windows can be incredibly draining on your finances as well as your carbon footprint. With thermally efficient double-glazing the average energy saving works out around £110-115 each year, so if you add these savings up over time it’s easy to see how double glazing truly pays for itself in the long-run.

As well as boosting thermal efficiency, high-quality double glazing holds real potential to add considerable value and kerb appeal to your home too. First impressions can be make or break for the majority of buyers, and double glazing plays a key role in whether buyers respond positively or negatively to your home – decent double glazing combined with central heating ranks highly amongst UK house-hunters, after all.

A good Energy Performance Certificate rating (EPC) is highly advantageous to Bristol, Somerset and Gloucestershire buyers too. An EPC is a legal requirement for properties that are for sale or rental, which are there to help homeowners and tenants figure out how much energy costs are going to be and how they can save money in the future. High-quality renovations can markedly boost a property’s EPC rating and can even increase the value of it between 6% – 14%, depending on the home improvement of course.

Double glazing Bristol boosts your health and lifestyle

It’s a fact that 1 in 4 British homes suffer from condensation, damp or mould and approximately 5.4 million suffer from asthma in the UK.

Damaged or faulty window frames play a big part in damp and mould issues that often arise throughout homes across the UK. Poor ventilation, heating and insulation can also exacerbate condensation problems, with Bristol, Somerset and Gloucestershire homes even more susceptible to the hazardous issue thanks to the cold and wet coastal climate. Double glazing effectively improves air quality, providing a tough barrier to bacteria and viruses whilst resisting condensation by practically preserving heat within the building. As well as guarding those who suffer from respiratory problems in particular, double glazing also prevents window frames from rotting, warping or leaking which in turn protects the structure from being destroyed from the harmful effects of historically untreated damp and mould.
