If you’ve gotten to the point where you’re confident you want to replace your windows, be it because they’ve outlived their usefulness or you’re just looking for something new, it’s a decision you should put a fair amount of thought into. The quality of a window can be judged on multiple factors, so it’s worth thoroughly investigating every avenue when it comes to deciding on the new windows you want for your home. Here are 3 of the biggest elements to consider when you want to replace your window!

Deciding on a window style

With so many styles of windows on the market, it can be a daunting decision to decide on something that successfully complements your home. To begin with, you should think about the kind of material you want for your frames. Jack of Glass offers both high-quality uPVC and aluminium frames. The material you choose is dependent on what you’re looking for. You can’t go wrong with either of them, if you’re looking for something sleek and stylish then you should opt for aluminium but if you’re looking for something that offers high-performance for a lower cost, uPVC is for you.

After deciding on the material you want, you can browse our range of colours and woodgrain foils to find something that suits your home. There’s also a variety of glass options that are available as well. If you want to find a window that perfectly matches your home, there’s no better place than Jack of Glass. Take a look at our range of colour options and glazing options to find the style that suits you.

Finding a thermally efficient window

You’ll also want to make sure that your windows are keeping you and your house warm by being thermally efficient. A window from Jack of Glass is sure to fulfil your heating needs thanks to their superb thermal performance. Our high-quality double glazing will give you a comfortable home all year round. We use two panes of glass with a pocket of argon gas between them, trapping the heat that tries to leave your home, there’s a reason that our windows have an ‘A’ window energy rating.

Unlike single glazed windows, double glazing can save you upwards of £90 on your energy bills each year as you’ll be spending less money on trying to heat your home. The benefits of double glazing don’t just include keeping your house warmer and your wallet thicker, they also improve the level of sound insulation. As your windows will be more reinforced, sound from the outside should have a harder time being heard within your household, which makes double glazing notably useful for those that live in a busy area.

Ensuring your windows are secure

It’s undeniably important that the windows you choose for your home are secure and sturdy above all else. Without being able to comfortably relax in your home, you’ll be left feeling paranoid that you or your loved ones could be in danger from shattered glass or a home invader. To ensure that your home’s windows are both sturdy and secure, you should get your replacement windows from Jack of Glass.

The previously mentioned double glazing actually helps improve the security of your windows as the increased amount of glass means that the windows are harder to break or crack, which can deter robbers and also reduces the chance of an accident shattering your window like a football hitting it et cetera. Our windows are also tested to meet all UK security standards and come fitted with highly secure locking systems.

Mr Bennett

I had to replace a small double glazed panel in a window. I though it would be difficult to get anybody interested as it was such a small job. However, Jack of Glass did the work. They visited the house to take the measurements, ordered the replacement glass and fitted it all very efficiently and at a reasonable cost. I will use them again.
