Protect Your Home with uPVC and Composite Doors

Posted on by admin

 
Your home is your castle, and it’s the one place in the world where you should feel completely comfortable and safe. To have confidence in the security of your home it’s important to make sure there are no weak spots, and one of the most important areas to consider is your doors.
 
An ageing front or back door can bring down the exterior aesthetics of your property, but more importantly it creates an easier point of entry and can draw unwanted attention from potential intruders.
 
At AJ Windows we provide a wide range of doors that can smarten up your exterior, reduce your energy bills and above all, provide you with complete peace of mind. All of our doors are created with security in mind and feature a multi-point locking system and only the highest quality materials.
 
Our composite doors are becoming increasingly popular due to the high level of security they provide for a relatively low cost. These doors are made from durable, weather resistant materials that will last for years and require very little on-going maintenance compared to wooden doors.
 
Composite doors come in a large selection of styles and colours and can be customised with optional extras such as door knockers, peep holes and more. Whatever your style, we can help you to create a design that will suit you and your home.

Add Value to Your Property with a New Conservatory

Posted on by admin

 
Rather than attempt to move house in a difficult market, many homeowners are now looking for ways to invest in their current property instead. Adding a room to your house is a particularly effective way of boosting its market value, and in the meantime it provides you with extra space to enjoy.
 
Living space is an important feature in any home, and a well thought out ground floor layout can often persuade buyers to overlook a slightly smaller spare bedroom or bathroom. So if you’re thinking of investing in your home then a conservatory is worth some serious consideration.
 
It is estimated that a conservatory can add up to 5% to the value of a property, and since they are relatively inexpensive to build the majority of homeowners recoup their entire investment when it comes to selling. Providing your conservatory adheres to a few basic building regulations you no longer need to go through the hassle of obtaining planning permission, making it a much more straightforward option than it was previously.
 
To achieve the best results, your conservatory should be carefully designed to fit in with the style of the rest of your home. It’s also worth bearing in mind that this is a room designed to catch a lot of light, so you should try to seek out fade resistant paint, blinds and flooring to keep your sun trap looking its best for longer.
 
Here at AJ Windows we design and install bespoke conservatories across Gloucester, Cheltenham, Stroud and the surrounding areas. We can provide help and advice throughout the whole project to make sure that you get the best out of your new conservatory, whether you are hoping to move in the near future or enjoy your home for years to come.
