Five Reasons To Upgrade Your Double Glazing
1. Increased security
Like many things, technology has advanced and improved double glazing options. Models over 15 years old will most likely be fitted with a two-point locking system. This means that if the latch is compromised, it’s easy to gain entry to your home. They are also likely to be externally glazed, meaning if someone pops the glass from outside, then you’re in trouble. The Ken Rhodes Group offers modern double glazing designs with a 12 point lock system and internal glazing. This means that our uPVC windows have additional strength and will provide better safety and security for your home and belongings. The house in the street with shiny new windows will present more of a struggle to gain entry to and will deter any potential break-ins.
2. Double glazed, money saved
The Ken Rhodes Group only install A+ rated windows that offer the best energy efficiency currently on offer, with virtually no heat loss. Older frames are far less effective at insulating your home. Installing better-rated panes means there will be less need to have the heating on, and when it is, for far less time. This effect can help reduce your annual energy bill and your carbon footprint.
3. Regain access to your home
For many who installed a conservatory at the back of their house many years ago, they can find access to the room very restricted. This is because of poor glass temperature control, making it ice-like in the winter and scorching and uncomfortable in the summer. What many may not realise is that replacing the glass of the walls and the roof with contemporary double glazing will fix this. You will regain access to your home, and for a quarter of the price of a new renovation. The Ken Rhodes Group specialises in window, door and conservatory glass fitting.
4. Increase your property value
If you’re looking to sell your home, replacing the windows can be a great way to give it that added, little boost. It will add to your curb appeal and transform a drab exterior. With plenty of options on styles and frames, you can tailor and customise the windows any way you want. The Ken Rhodes Group offer an aluminium frame that will apply a clean, neat finish. Best of all, these products requires little maintenance: they are protected against issues of swelling and cracking throughout season changes. They can even be spray painted any colour. If A+ rated windows are used, this will improve your home’s energy efficiency. This characteristic is displayed on the home buyer’s report, meaning it will make your home more attractive to potential buyers. It may even bump up your home’s value.
5. It’s not as expensive as you think
With so many options on finishes and design, it’s easy to achieve a high-end look at an affordable price. The Ken Rhodes Group work closely with their customers, getting to know them and therefore what products will be best for their home and bank accounts. They also offer customers finance, allowing them to spread costs over three years, interest-free or the ability to join the buy now, pay later scheme. It’s worthwhile working closely with installers so they can get to know you and deliver exactly what it is you are looking for.
