Windows, doors and conservatories - Fitted by Local Specialists

If you are sitting in a chilly sitting room with rattling windows letting in drafts and a door which has seen better days it may be time to look at improving your home with replacement windows and doors, and a conservatory. 

Whatever heating fuel you use the cost is increasing rapidly, so being able to save money by fitting energy efficient windows and doors is an excellent investment. An average home could save hundreds of pounds per year in energy bills as well as reducing maintenance costs and greatly improving the look of your home.

Replacement Windows

One of the simplest ways to improve your home is to replace your windows with double or triple glazed windows. There are countless advantages including energy efficiency, sound reduction and reduced maintenance. West Country Windows install highly efficient windows with heat reflective glass and airtight seals to prevent drafts.

The windows installed by West Country Windows all have high U values - this is a measure of how much heat passes through the window. A higher value means the window will allow less heat to escape your home. You may additionally choose to use Pilkington K glass which has a special coating which reflects heat back into your room whilst also letting in heat from the sun, a process known as passive solar gain.

There are many styles of replacement windows available from West Country Windows including uPVC, timber windows, aluminium windows and vertical sliding windows.

uPVC Windows

uPVC is a thermoplastic material, which can be moulded into any desired shape, design, pattern, finish or colour. West Country Windows manufacture these windows to fit your home, each window is made individually and is bespoke. 

There is no maintenance involved with uPVC windows and they will provide years of service with nothing more than a wipe down to keep the panes and frames clean. They can be supplied in a range of colours and finishes to suit your home.

Timber Windows

Wood is the most traditional material for window manufacture, it provides an excellent choice for traditional windows, particularly in older properties or those in conservation areas where timber windows can be used to maintain the style of the property. West Country Windows use the latest technology to ensure your windows not only look great but are long lasting and durable.
