A Helpful Guide For Buying New Replacement Windows


Your guide to getting the perfect replacement windows

When you think about it, we have to be so thankful for our windows at home because they do so many important jobs. 

They are a central figure in the overall appearance of our properties, and they are what help to keep us secure when we’re indoors, or at least they should do. What else? Well, they pull the light of the sun into internal rooms, and they also contribute to the warmth we feel when it’s cold outside. 

Reading that, has it made you realise that your current windows are past their best, and it’s time to get them replaced?

If it has, Mid Wales Windows can offer you some invaluable window buying guidance:

Window style

It’s vital that any replacement windows do not diminish the character of your house and only enhance it, which will require the correct choice of window style. 

Each window style offers something different and includes styles such as casement windows (one of the most classic designs), bay and bow windows (perfect for period homes) and tilt and turn windows (the easiest window to clean due to the unique opening). 

Consider the age of the building too when selecting a style.

Window material

Like so many other window companies, Mid Wales mostly uses UPVC and aluminium to manufacture its window products. The two materials have great insulating properties.

UPVC windows are great for the price as unlike timber windows, they don’t lose any of their strength or aesthetics as they get older, meaning no maintenance is needed. 

Aluminium windows are similarly robust, and they have the most amazing sightlines due to the slenderness of the frames and vast expanses of glass. Their powder-coated finish is also eye-catching.

Window installer

Now, who do you turn to for these windows and the final installation? You need windows that are guaranteed to last and perform for many, many years. 

Check out the various local installers online and any company website they have. Also, look out for customer reviews of these installers so that you see whether people rate their work or not. 

It’s always best to appoint an installer with a recognised industry accreditation. Mid Wales Window is a FENSA member, and you can’t have more reassurance than that!
