As it’s National Home Security Month, we thought we’d share this latest case study as a prime example of how easy it is to improve your home security by upgrading your windows and doors with Global Windows this winter.

A modern renovation in Rotherham

Following a trip to our extensive Handsworth showroom, this customer was particularly impressed with the array of security features that our collection of composite doors and uPVC casement windows had to offer them.

Determined to revitalise the dated exterior of their property with a modern, secure alternative whilst retaining an air of timeless sincerity, an Anthracite Grey finish fit the bill perfectly.

Old timber door vs brand new composite door; no contest!

Old timber door vs a new composite door

Anthracite grey on white uPVC windows – Less frames, more glass

As well as heightened home security benefits, it’s clear to see that the inclusion of ‘A’ rated uPVC frames have vastly enhanced this home’s natural light intake; literally giving the whole family a brighter outlook on life for many enjoyable years to come!

Old windows vs new anthracite grey windows

Composite doors vs wooden doors

One of the main reasons behind this homeowner’s choice was the fact that the original wooden door only had one main locking system in place – leaving their home vulnerable to the very real possibility of forced entry via lock drilling burglary techniques. Offering a solid 70mm wide profile, the inclusion of the ultra-secure Ultion Brisant cylinder lock as standard really captured this customers attention; providing technologically advanced anti-snap and anti-drill capabilities.

More reasons to replace your wood front door with a protective composite door

  • Cost

Composite doors work out as a much more worthwhile, long term investment in comparison to wooden doors, due to the extent of the ongoing maintenance that’s required to keep a timber door performing at its very best, e.g. re-painting, re-varnishing, restoration. Failing to properly upkeep timber doors can result in warping, peeling or swelling, which seriously impacts upon the security and efficiency of the door – inevitably meaning more money needs to be spent to fix it. Due to the way composite doors are made, there’s no need to worry about it warping, swelling, peeling or discolouring over time.

  • Maintenance

As previously mentioned, wooden doors require constant attention to retain their defensive qualities and classic charm. Composite doors simply need a swift oil of the hinges and a quick wipe over with soapy water and a lint-free cloth every now and then to retain its beauty.

  • Life Expectancy

Timber doors can technically last a lifetime, but this depends on the weather conditions they’re exposed to and regular preservation. Composite doors can truly last a lifetime, delivering the least amount of hassle and the utmost peace of mind.

Kubu Smart Lock Composite Doors

Global Windows go one step further in securing homes throughout South Yorkshire and beyond, thanks to the option of the inclusion of a Kubu Door Lock with your new composite door.

Brilliant company from all we’ve dealt with, right through to the fitters, to the follow-up emails making sure everything was ok. Having used you before and after having work done to my property, I thought you the only obvious choice to return. Was a little worried as I’d had insulated render fitted and was concerned about the removal and refitting into the same size opening, and the damage it would cause. No worries, it seems. Each to their own trade as they say, and I’m glad they managed it and left me in no doubt, another great job done. Many thanks to you all. And see you in 15 years again?

After a fair few months of looking for a good window provider we can say we are one hundred percent happy with Global. They exceeded our expectations from start to finish. Michael with the quote, the lovely ladies from the office and Andy and Josh who fitted our seven windows and front door. Very professional, good quality, quick and efficient work. A pleasure to work with such a team. Our next step is the conservatory with Global. Thank you and well done to all.

Excellent Service

My mum wanted to say thank you so much for the fantastic service Global windows have given her following her burglary. From start to finish they reassured her the replacement patio doors would be robust and fitted as quickly as possible to ensure the property was secured. On the day of fitting the fitters arrived promptly and installed the doors with no mess. The gentleman who organised this from Global (sorry she couldn’t remember his name) came out to check the doors and to see mum was happy with them brought her a beautiful bunch of flowers. Mum was over the moon. Thank you so much.

We decided to re-use this Company despite moving house and County. Global were helpful and very professional at all stages of the installation. We found all their staff friendly and knowledgeable. Dates given, returning phone calls etc. were all met. The price was very competitive, the quality of their products was excellent with a good range of colours and styles. The fitters were very hardworking, managed to get the work done in one day rather than the expected 2, mainly due to the fact they worked as a team, didn’t take breaks and clearly knew their job. Great company.
