Invest in your windows

We discover the benefits of installing a conservatory and replacing old windows with help from the team at Windmill Windows.

Windmill Windows is a family run business established in 1996 by brothers David and John, and over the last 23 years they’ve built themselves a proven reputation for quality and value.

In a recent interview with the brothers we discussed the various benefits that installing new windows or a conservatory can bring to your home. “Installing a quality conservatory is one of the best home improvements that you can make,” explained David,

“it not only transforms your living space into an open, seamless environment, it also adds value to your home and makes it easier to sell when the time comes.”

If you’re unsure about which conservatory you want then make sure to visit the Windmill Windows showroom (open 8.30am until 4.30pm Monday to Friday, Saturday mornings by appointment) so you can get a real idea of what’s available and see the different materials and finishes in person, because when it comes to home improvements, seeing the products first-hand is a must. Plus, the experienced team are on hand to explain the various benefits of the different materials and finishes available, so you can make an educated decision.

We asked John for his advice on updating your windows. He told us: “One thing that can make a massive difference to your home both in terms of heat efficiency and overall look is to replace your windows. Feeling a draught is probably the most obvious warning sign as well as windows rattling when the wind picks up, also if you have wooden frames, when they begin to show signs of ageing its probably time to renew them and perhaps even go for a more durable material like uPVC for the future so they last longer.”

Windmill Windows feature an extensive range of windows including uPVC, Vertical Sliders, Heritage Flush Slash Windows, Modus Windows, Ultimate Windows and Rustique Windows, with each providing a different look for your home. You really will be surprised by the difference replacing your windows makes, which this customer experienced first hand: “Dear Windmill Windows, I just wanted to say thank you for providing and installing my new kitchen window (plus additional side window replacement). The kitchen seems brighter now and the view brilliantly clear. The fitters were marvellous and the kitchen and outside yard were left in spotless condition. Thank you so much for all your help and advice and for the local support.” Emphasising the transformational difference that investing in new windows can bring to your home, as well as the brilliant service that Windmill Windows provide.
