Summer is now upon us, and we’ve already enjoyed some of the warm weather with the promise of plenty more to come here in Bognor Regis, West Sussex.
However, although the longer, sunnier days are often welcome, the summer is also good at exposing certain things.
As the weather gets warmer and we venture outside, we discover that the garden, left untended over the winter, needs a bit of a spruce up; we find the paddling pool, hastily packed in the shed last September now has several holes; and, in many cases, the summer body we promise ourselves year on year has yet to appear.
We might also notice that our windows have begun to lose some of their lustre. If you feel like your windows need an upgrade, here are our top five double glazing and related products that you should invest in to get your home looking great for the Summer.
As well as providing a more traditional look for your property, sash windows open further and allow more air to enter your home. This can create a fantastic airy feeling in your home.
uPVC is the most popular choice for new window frames. However, if you want to give your home a little extra shine, you might want to consider aluminium frames.
Not only are they durable and easy to maintain, but they’ll help your home look sleek and modern in the summer sun. Also, because aluminium is a stronger material, frames are thinner, meaning larger panes of glass. This creates a brighter and more spacious feeling in your home.
If you really want to make the most of the summer, a conservatory is a fantastic addition to your home. Aside from creating an additional living space, a conservatory helps bring your outdoors and indoors together, providing you a place to sit in shelter while enjoying the garden.
Another way to help bring the outside in and open up your home to the outdoors is by installing patio doors. On warmer days, these can be left open, creating a broad, breezy thoroughfare between your home and garden.
Although not itself a double-glazing product, the insulative properties of double glazing makes air condition a more viable investment. Because double glazing is more heat efficient, the cooling effects of your air conditioning will last longer, meaning the air conditioning is not working as hard to cool your home.
