Renovating your house can be a daunting task, but we are here to help!
Your windows and doors are most likely one of the major contributors to thermal loss and gain in your home, leading to higher energy use and lower comfort levels. So it makes sense to consider replacing your windows and doors and installing double glazing.
However, not all double glazing is made equal. There are many options out there and it is important that you do your research to ensure you are getting the best bang for your buck. uPVC is the best material to house double glazed glass units for a number of reasons, so its not surprising that it is the most widespread window and door profile product in use worldwide.
When refurbishing a property, it is tempting sometimes to take the cheapest option with a make-do-and-mend approach. You know the scenario: there’s a nice old building – or a nice not-so-old building – that looks a bit quirky because it’s been patched up rather than repaired properly. Maybe you have looked at such properties in the past when you were in the market for a new place, and it just wasn’t something you felt you could rely on.
Sometimes patching up can work but often you’re just delaying the inevitable and the better option would be to bite the bullet and get the job done from scratch. This can certainly be true of windows because they are such a fundamental part of a building. Get the windows wrong and you jeopardise the whole project. One example is double glazing existing windows. While this option can be a quick fix you will miss out on all the benefits modern uPVC window frames have to offer. If your chosen replacement windows are double glazed, – and in this day and age, especially in Melbourne, they should be – getting it right can ensure the future stability and integrity of your home, and that affects its resale value. If you plan to keep the property long term, getting the right windows can save you a fortune in heating or aircon bills, and if you’re planning to sell in the not-too-distant future, you don’t want prospective buyers looking at the windows and seeing that work is going to be needed before long. Either way, double glazed window replacement in Melbourne should be undertaken as a priority and custom made uPVC windows are the way to go.
Here in Melbourne, the climate is not as predictable as in other parts of the country. Whether you regard that as part of the city’s charm or as a slight disappointment, it is a fact that there are times in this fine place when you’re trying to keep the cold out and the heat in. To replace windows with double glazing is the only sensible thing to do and will therefore soon be stipulated by the national construction code. In addition to saving money, it’s all part of preserving the planet’s resources, because running an energy-efficient building is now a responsibility any good citizen must accept and double glazed entry doors and windows are the first step.
Protecting your investment is a fashionable phrase that applies in many spheres of life, and for most people, the biggest, most important investment is in bricks and mortar. Whatever else happens in our life, if that chunk of real estate is sitting there in good condition, it can be the foundation that keeps everything stable. We can live in it, work in it, rent it out and live off the income or borrow against it for something else we need or want. Double-glazed window replacement in Melbourne is a key element in our stability because it’s a crucial part of the health of the property itself. You need to keep the wiring and plumbing up to date, but if they both get a bit cranky, they don’t affect the ambience and perhaps the structural integrity of the building. The windows do. We’ve got to keep the elements out, keep the place dry and maintain the temperature inside to keep everything in good condition.
Ask a chartered surveyor, a good maintenance professional or even senior family members how important it is to have good replacement double-glazed windows and you’ll get the same answer from all of them. Quality double glazed windows like the ones offered at Thermal Double Glazing are essential.
If you bought this house because you liked it, but there was one glaring fault – the windows – the answer is simple: replace them. You can’t blame the previous owners or the builders; maybe double glazing wasn’t an option back in those days.
When it comes to window replacements Melbourne is one of the prime contenders for improvement. That’s because of the weather. We have real weather around here, and that means rain and wind sometimes, and while the invention of the window itself in its primitive, single-pane form may have been great back in the day, times have changed. Replacing windows with double glazing allows you to keep the draughts out and control the temperature in the building.
It is actually a simple process. When we carry out window replacements in Melbourne, we remove what’s there – carefully and cleanly – and install our state-of-the-art units, what you will notice most is a dramatic improvement in the ambience of the building. Warmer, quieter, cosier, more reassuring. You will also notice lower energy bills because you’re keeping that expensive heat inside, not letting it waft out of the windows so you have to generate and pay for some more. Combined with double glazed uPVC doors, Melbourne weather has nothing on you.
