Improving your home?

Speak to the experts at Collingtons, Helston, and discover how they can help ensure your home improvements stand the test of time.

Specialists in the supply and fitting of double-glazing and uPVC doors, windows and conservatories, all the uPVC products that Collingtons works with are A+10 rated, providing you with greater thermal efficiency and noise reduction. What’s more, their doors are steel-reinforced, supplied with multi-point locking mechanisms, thus drastically improving safety and security.

“Our doors can be made in different styles with a range of patterned and/or feature glass,” explains company owner, Colin.

“They can be fitted to open inwards or outwards and are available with low thresholds for convenience and ease of access.”

“We also supply a range of uPVC windows,” Colin continues, “from casement windows, to French openers and sliding sash windows. All of them offer flexibility for installation, ensuring suitability for a range of property types.” Indeed, the sliding sash windows closely replicate the look of traditional timber sliding sash windows, whilst incorporating the energy efficiency and other benefits of uPVC, making them perfect for those hoping to update a period home. As Colin tells us: “With this range of windows we aim to give our customers the benefits of highly advanced materials and safety locking mechanisms combined with a timeless, classic window style.”

So how else can you benefit from uPVC? Perhaps you’ve been thinking about extending your living space. If so, whether it’s to add value or make more room for a growing family, uPVC conservatory frames share the same structural and efficiency features as Collingtons’ doors and windows. What’s more, all frames are available in a wide range of colours, including a wood grain effect. The wood grain is a foil that covers the frame, giving the uPVC and authentic wooden look and feel, giving you a sense of the traditional without sacrificing on quality, efficiency and, crucially, home security.

Colin finishes: “Our uPVC products are only as good as the hardware and fittings that they are supplied with. We offer a range of colours and styles for the handles, letterboxes and hinges, including marine grade options for properties that are exposed to the sea air. We also have a team of experienced fitters who carry out installations to the utmost standards and, as a company, we take great pride in our work, which is why all of our products are supplied with a ten year guarantee!”

So if you’ve been thinking of upgrading your tired doors or windows, or would like to extend your living space with a conservatory, why not consult the experts at Collingtons in Helston and discover the many benefits of uPVC?
