Why New Windows and Doors are a Key Home Improvement for 2016

The New Year signals a time of change and resolutions, when many people make commitments to getting those tasks and projects they have been putting off for many months completed. If 2016 is the year you are planning on improving your home, whether to make it more practical and amenable to live in or with the aim of putting it on the market, we believe that installing new windows and doors could be the most effective improvement of them all and this is why:


Energy Efficiency

If you are not making home improvements to sell your home but to make it a better place to live in, then reducing your energy bills will be an important motivator. New windows and doors are manufactured to keep the noise out and the warmth in, thus creating a quieter, more pleasant environment in your home and ensuring you are not wasting energy. The thermal performance of many modern windows mean that they deliver an A rated energy label, which is ideal for reducing your heating bills but also an attractive proposition for would-be buyers if you are looking to sell your home.

In addition to these four reasons for making windows and doors your top home improvement for the new year you could also add aesthetic motives – such as simply the desire to enhance the look of your property or realising it is time for a change.

Whatever your inspiration for making home improvements this year, if new windows and doors are at the top of your list please contact Waterside Windows today for more information on our A and C Rated UPVC windows, doors and conservatories.


High Security

One of the most appealing elements of installing new windows and doors to your home is the added security they will offer. Choosing the right UPVC doors, for example, will ensure you can benefit from the latest security features including deadlocks and toughened safety glass. The peace of mind these new windows and doors will bring are reason enough in themselves to make the investment in home improvements this year.


First Impressions

First Impressions

If you are planning on selling your home, then first impressions really count. From that initial drive-by to the first or second viewing from potential buyers, it is those exterior details that are committed to memory such as the front door or street-facing windows. Recalling these details positively will help potential buyers to reach their decision and if your home looks appealing from the outside you are more likely to gain that sale. Consider that if you have an old, worn looking front door and windows that don’t display the modern features expected by today’s homeowners then you might not get past the drive-by stage.


Added Value

Estate agents will readily agree that new doors and windows not only improve a property’s kerb appeal but increase its value. Adding value to your home is one of the principal reasons for making home improvements, particularly if you are doing so with the aim of selling your house.
