Different homes around Coulsdon are built in different architectural styles, and have different features that make them unique. Amongst our range of composite doors, bifold doors, aluminium windows, uPVC windows and uPVC doors, there are all sorts of different styles – casement, flush, bay, tilt and turn, sash being just a few on the window side of things. When double glazing units can be fitted in any of these styles, and in all types of conservatories, you have the freedom to really get creative…
Period homes are often best suited to “natural” look materials, such as wood grain effect composite doors. More modern, new build properties court a certain minimalism, so maximising the double glazing to frame ratio becomes a popular approach. When it comes to uPVC windows and uPVC doors, these days there’s more stylistic flexibility than ever. No longer is it just plain white, uninspiring fixtures. Consider a grey or black frame, or if your budget could enable an upgrade to aluminium windows, which are renowned for their sleek, modern profile.
We’ve touched on the potential stylistic differences between aluminium, uPVC and composite – but what about the functional differences? Aluminium windows are known for their strength and durability, making them ideal for Coulsdon homeowners who want to prioritise home security. They’re also low maintenance and as mentioned above, come in all sorts of colours and styles.
Composite doors, due to consisting of multiple materials meticulously layered over a rock solid core, are also known for their impressive strength. They expand on the already impressive thermal efficiency of uPVC doors, helping you lock in heat in your Coulsdon home.
uPVC windows and uPVC doors are typically more affordable than aluminium windows and composite doors. Yet despite being economical, they aren’t cheaply made. Their chambered design helps keep your home secure and warm. They’re also ideal for conservatories and for use as bifold doors, so you can get a value-adding end product without breaking the bank. Remember, double glazing can be fit within all styles of window and conservatories, which we recommend to help keep properties cool in the summer, and warm in the winter!
