There is a huge range of different types of window available for houses these days. Decent windows should create a look which is stylish and elegant, but remains in keeping with the surrounding houses. Since installing new UPVC windows is a hefty investment for most, great care should be taken to choose a reputable (and recommended) local company who can supply high quality UPVC windows with the latest security and also a high energy rated product. Getting the right windows from the right company will result in lower energy bills, increased thermal comfort and safety, and low maintenance.
A decent company will have different types of UPVC windows available, with a good and varied choice of designs and colours. The colour of the frame should fit in with and complement your home and the surrounding houses, along with the type of window. Casement windows are still popular and are usually available in many designs, to suit the age and type home. Tilt and turn windows allow you to clean your windows easily, they also allow you to have much larger sizes than a conventional window, increasing available light in your house. If you have a town or country home, sash windows will look the part without having the peeling, damp frames that wood provides. Period homes benefit from sash windows with modern operating mechanisms and high security options.
