Choices, Choices!

For those of us living and breathing windows, doors and conservatories, we’ve witnessed first-hand the ebb and flow of different products as tastes change and as newer, better versions are brought to market. In the last couple of years particularly though, as an industry, we have risen to the challenge to provide more choice and the very best products across the board.

Homeowners have become more discerning, they want more choice, better quality and they’re happy to pay for the right product from the right company. A slight adaptation of Henry Ford’s famous statement was entirely relevant for the window industry some years ago: “You can have any colour as long as it’s white!” Almost all windows were sold in white. However, over the last few years we’ve seen a seismic shift towards colour to the point that some of our top-level suppliers are boasting that 50% of their entire production is now dedicated to colourful windows and doors.

Which roof would you like with that conservatory?

It’s not just colour that has moved on in terms of choice though. Conservatories for example offer so much more choice than they ever have before. You can buy a new one with a glass roof, a tinted glass roof or a solid roof, or if you’re happy with your existing conservatory building, you can simply replace the roof on top to improve the temperature and look of the room. Or of course you have the option of an orangery instead now – a variation on the same theme of providing more space in the home.

And finally, doors. The product variations in this sector have increased significantly and more companies are offering a much wider range of options than ever before. Composite doors, aluminium, PVC-U, bi-fold, patio, French and stable doors are the main groups but within each of those groups there are many more choices to be made.

A choice that makes sense

At West Yorkshire Windows we don’t want to go over the top and overwhelm our customers with choice – we’ve all been there, wanting to scream at the coffee barista for the barrage of questions when all we want is a cup of coffee! But we do want to be able to deliver exactly what you want. We think we’ve struck the perfect balance with a sensible choice of windows and doors and most importantly we’ve been doing what we do for 25 years so we have an experienced and friendly team on hand to talk you through the options and advise you of the best fit for your property and your requirements.

How to Improve Your Home this Spring

Having just experienced the coldest days on record for March with snow, gales and blizzards, you’d be forgiven for thinking we’re still in the depths of winter. But Spring is just around the corner! The days are already getting longer, the daffodils are trying to bloom and it’s the time of year that many of us feel invigorated to get on with some home improvements.

Where to start?

Near the top of the list for Spring home improvements is adding some colour to our homes – a quick and simple solution to significantly change its appearance and give it a fresh style for the new year. However, many of us have bigger plans at this time of year.

As the evenings become lighter and the weather starts to get warmer, we’re more likely to think about open plan living and how we can encapsulate this into our homes. Research shows that 77% of us spend our leisure time at home, including time spent entertaining friends and family. So, whether it’s opening up your dining area into the garden, adding a new conservatory or upgrading your existing conservatory into a more usable room, we want to create wide open spaces that will enhance our lifestyles.

Let the sunshine in

In addition to opening up our homes, Springtime often creates a renewed desire to let more light in. On the smallest scale, it’s worth giving your existing windows some TLC – they take a battering from the elements in the winter months and could do with a good clean to ensure your view of the outside world isn’t being marred by murky windows. Of course, if once you’ve given them a bit of attention, they’re still not looking great, Spring is a good time to consider replacing them – there are a lot of high security, energy efficient windows to choose from these days, in all sorts of colours to give your home a facelift too!

For those of us that have already replaced our windows and made sure they’re sparkling clean, is there anything else we can do to let more natural light into our homes? There is indeed! Adding roof windows to an extension or replacing the roof of your existing conservatory from polycarbonate to glass, or even to a solid roof with roof-lights, are all great ways to ensure your home continues to light up your lifestyle!

So, it’s time to put that Spring enthusiasm to work to make sure you have the secure, warm, light home you crave, while saving yourself the expense and hassle of future essential maintenance in months to come.
