Many of the window companies in high streets and locally only offer a limited product range.  Many choose only to offer standard PVCu windows and standard composite entrance doors.  However every property is different and replacing your windows with the wrong product could affect the appearance of your home and it’s future appeal if you come to sell it.
There are many different types of properties in the UK such as traditional cottages, heritage homes, houses in conservation areas, art deco homes and those with sliding sash windows.  All of these different types of houses call for a specific window.  Many have had standard double glazing installed often compromising on it’s kerb appeal.

Does your window company manufacture?
