Windows will often determine the character of a home and choosing a new or replacement window requires some thought.
French doors are a popular option for replacement doors and windows in modern or period homes, both attractive and providing lots of light.
Bifold doors are those where panels concertina together when they are opened. Bi-folding units have doors that open inwards or outwards.
When property owners decide to replace windows and patio doors they have a choice – aluminium or uPVC and it's not an easy decision.
The two most popular types of windows for the home are the casement and the sash. A sash window has sliding panels that overlap each other.
Many window suppliers offer uPVC or PVCu windows and customers can sometimes get confused over the difference between the two terms.
