Many homeowners across Sheffield are looking for a simple yet effective way to improve their homes exterior aesthetics but just can’t seem to see the wood for the trees. The Global Windows team have rejuvenated many South Yorkshire property exteriors with ease and finesse over the years, so we thought we’d share a prime example to offer some inspiration for your own home improvement project.
Refreshing replacement windows and doors
The Kendall family were looking for a hassle-free way to bring their Base Green semi-detached house up to date, whilst enhancing their homes overall security and energy efficient qualities.
After researching a number of local glazing companies online, the Kendall’s found Global Windows. Suitably impressed by our outstanding customer reviews, they booked an appointment to visit our conveniently based Handsworth showroom.
After discussing their needs in much detail, they agreed on a full house of replacement windows and doors; falling in love with the modern and sophisticated look of Anthracite Grey. Looking to the future, they also appreciated that by replacing their old windows and doors they were welcoming real potential to boost their home’s value too.
New uPVC casement windows were installed for practicality and ease, covered by the official Police security initiative Secured by Design, and finished with quality assured multipoint Yale locking systems and handles.
With customer safety and security firmly in mind, they also replaced their old front & rear uPVC doors with stylish burglar resistant composite doors complete with high-security Ultion Cylinders for total peace of mind.
Impressively taking just 2 days to install from start to finish, we’re sure you’ll agree that the finished article provides a welcome contemporary alternative to the classic white uPVC look.
How often should windows be replaced?
High-quality uPVC windows should last around 15-20 years, whereas aluminium windows have a better life expectancy of around 45 years. So, if your uPVC windows were installed over 2 decades ago we suggest it’s about time for an upgrade!
