What is the lifespan of double glazing windows?

lifespan of double glazing -Windows & Doors, Orangeries, Roofs, Extensions, Sovereign Home, EssexNothing lasts forever they say and double glazing is no different but what is the lifespan of double glazing windows?

If your Essex home is looking past its’ best and your windows are beginning to fail, then don’t worry about it too much.

Whether you are inland in Basildon or on the cost in Southend, the fact is, that double glazing doesn’t last forever.

Surprised? However, it is true.

What is the lifespan of double glazing windows – Who knew?

Windows and doors get opened and closed many times a day, and in the case of windows, especially so in the summer.

We open them because it’s hot, then close them so that we can go to the shops.

Then come back again and open them.

Then it’s time to pick the kids up from nursery, so we close them again.

We could go on, but you get the picture.

Not only that, there can be problems with older windows misting up as well.

Many of the windows of 20 or 30 years ago were only expected to have a life of perhaps about that long. (They didn’t tell you that, did they ?!).

But to be fair, nothing lasts forever, not even double glazing.

Furthermore, the older windows didn’t have anything like the superior glass that we have today, so although they were a lot more energy efficient than single glazed windows could ever be, they still lag behind what we can do now in the 21st century.

So if you are looking to replace your double glazing in Basildon, it’s not surprising.

And if indeed, you are, then you are going to want the best of the best, and that means Sovereign Home Improvements.

What is the lifespan of double glazing windows – Why Us?

How is it that we have become the leading installer of double glazing in Basildon and the rest of Essex in just over three short years?

It’s because we are a family firm and we started in life with the intention of being the best, both with our sales pitch and our installation teams.

Our mantra is to treat every customer as we would wish to be treated ourselves.

Nothing more and nothing less.

This means that we don’t use gimmicky sales tactics.

We quote you a fair and honest price for your double glazing, and please don’t be surprised if we don’t offer an “amazing” reduction if you don’t accept it.

It will almost certainly be well below the price of one of the national giants anyway (mentioning no names) because we don’t employ very expensive salesmen.

We’re a family business, remember.

What we do is offer you a fair price and outstanding workmanship (see our testimonials).

If you want the best at the lowest price, give us a call.

No hard sales tactics – that’s a promise. Just the best.

Find a Good Double Glazing Company…

Finding a Good Double Glazing Company…

A Good Double Glazing Company, now that’s’ refreshing!

Sovereign Home Improvements is one of the leading suppliers of double glazing in Essex and we have achieved this status in just three short years.

The reason is that we are different.

Find a Good Double-Glazing Company - Soveriegn Home Improvements - Essex

Double glazing is a big investment but double-glazing companies come and go because of – apart from anything else – their sales tactics.

Their salesman comes in and gives you the spiel and quotes you a price for your windows, which, quite frankly, he would be rubbing his hands with glee at the thought of his commission if you actually accepted it.

However, he wants the deal on the night, or the day if it’s the weekend, and his company has trained him to use an assortment of tactics for suddenly finding ways in which the price can be considerably reduced.

But as always,  “only if you sign up here and now”.

This amazing price will not be available again!

Of course, it is always possible that the final price may be the best you could get, but unless you have looked at any competitors, how do you know?

Find a Good Double-Glazing Company – Why Sovereign?

At Sovereign Home Improvements we don’t resort to tactics like that.

We are a family owned firm and we treat our customers with the respect that they deserve.

No, we don’t get the deal with every customer we see, but we have been getting enough of them to become on of the leading double-glazing company in Essex.

I guess is often comes down to your ethics? The price that we quote you is the price.

No gimmicks.

No sudden reductions if you sign up right now.

This is because we simply wouldn’t want to be treated that way ourselves, so we don’t do it.

Adding An Extension To The Home Rather Than Moving…

adding an extension to the home rather than moving, Soverisgn home improvements, Essex

Need more space around the house, many people today now look at adding an extension to the home rather than moving…

If you are considering any sort of extensions in Essex, Sovereign Home Improvements is the obvious choice.

We can provide any type of extension that you wish.

Adding An Extension To The Home…

Many people these days choose to add a conservatory to their home, and it is most certainly a way to enjoy the great outdoors in all weathers and at any time of year.

With all that glass, you can sit and enjoy your garden come rain or shine.

Many of the older conservatories that were built in the 80’s and 90’s are too hot in summer and too cold in winter.

However, today we use reflective glass which will ensure that the conservatory doesn’t get too hot in summer, and of course, you can have it heated for the winter as you would any other room.

You might also choose to have the Guardian Warm Roof on your conservatory.

This is a solid roof, and at Sovereign Home Improvements we are now official installers in the county.

Orangeries in Essex are also gaining in popularity.

Many people don’t really understand the difference between a conservatory and an orangery.

Orangeries were so called because they were extensions that were added to the homes of wealthy landowners as far back as the 17th century when they wanted to grow oranges and other citrus fruits in the UK.

adding an extension to the home rather than moving, Soverisgn home improvements, Essex v2Obviously, they would need protection in the winter, and the orangery was the answer.

Today, most orangeries don’t have as much glass as conservatories which have glass wall to ceiling.

Orangeries tend to have about three feet of brickwork at the base, but they still incorporate a lot of glass.

Of course, there are other ways of adding an extension to the home, and one that has also gained popularity recently is the home office.

This is because, with the growth of the internet, many people can work from home instead of going into an office.

But, of course, you need peace and quiet and to get away from the kids: the home office is the perfect answer.

Other people need a home extension because of a growing family when the kids want their own bedrooms.

Adding an extension can be an awful lot cheaper than moving to a bigger home, and it means that you can stay in your local area among family and friends rather than moving away.

Of course, whatever sort of extension you add to your home it is going to add value, so if you do want to sell at some time in the future it is also an investment.

uPVC Windows in 2019…

uPVC Windows & Doors, Orangeries, Roofs, Extentions, Sovereign Home, Essex (2474)If you are looking for either uPVC windows in Essex or uPVC doors then Sovereign Home Improvements is the company for you.

uPVC Windows And Doors In Essex – Considerations…

Installing double glazing is not “cheap” even though it is a great investment.

This is especially true if you have single glazed windows at the moment because you won’t believe the amount you can save on your heating bills.

Even if you have double glazing already, but it is over 20 years old, you will still save money because today’s double glazing is ultra-energy efficient.

And from that point of view beats older windows hands down. Our uPVC windows are all A+ energy rated.

However, it is not just the cost and energy saving aspects of uPVC windows and uPVC doors in Essex that makes them so attractive.

There is also the fact that our windows and doors are very long lasting, and they need virtually no maintenance.

They don’t need painting as wood-framed windows do, and if you decide to have tilt and turn windows you don’t even need a window cleaner!

They open inwards 90°, so you can clean the outside of the windows without going outside your home.

uPVC Windows And Doors In Essex – Cleaning…

Talking of window cleaning, there is another way of dealing with that chore, and that is by using self-cleaning glass.

Yes, despite the fact that it has been around for some while now, most people don’t know that you can have self-cleaning glass in your windows.

It has a special coating that breaks down dirt and then the rain simply washes it off.

Clever, huh? Of course, it costs more than standard glass, but just think what you’ll save by not having the window cleaner around every month.

It goes without saying, or it should do, that your Sovereign Home Improvements windows and doors can be crafted in any style you wish.

Without doubt, this is the most popular window style is the casement window which is hinged on one side and to open it you simply swing it out.

However, it can also be hinged at the top or the bottom of the frame if required.

There are many more styles of windows we can supply, one of those being sliding sash windows which don’t have hinges but slide up and down on rollers.

Some also have a tilting option to make for easier cleaning.

uPVC Windows And Doors In Essex and Sovereign Home Improvements…

Furthermore, Sovereign Home Improvements only ever uses top quality materials.

As with any type of product, there are always cut-price options, but the company believes that what a customer wants is the best, without any cutting of corners, so the best is what the customer gets.

Yes, there may be a slightly cheaper option, but when customers are making an investment of some thousands of pounds, they want something that is going to last, look outstanding, and have a guarantee that goes with it.

Whatever your needs for double glazing in Essex, just give us a call. We can do it all.

Our windows all have the police approved locking system which is called Security By Design.

This is a 10-point locking system which is designed to defeat the most persistent of intruders.

Our Windows and doors…

Windows & Doors - Sovereign Home Improvements, Essex

We supply and install all types of windows including casement windows, tilt and turn windows, bow windows, bay windows, sash windows, and more, and they can be made of UPVC, wood, or aluminium.

Many people today opt for UPVC windows because they are less expensive than aluminium or wood, and they can be provided in a range of colours other than plain white.

In fact, we offer them in rosewood, light oak, and the increasingly popular anthracite grey among several other choices.

All of our windows come fitted with the 10-point police-approved locking system which is called Secured By Design.

We use A+ energy rated glass in all our windows, whether double or triple glazed, and our warm edge spacer technology between the glass makes the glass further energy efficient and helps to keep down condensation.

In addition, it helps to reduce external noise which is perfect if you live on a busy main road or around Southend or Stansted airport.

Many of our customers are choosing tilt and turn windows.

These open 90° into the room so that they let in the maximum amount of fresh air, but also tilt open at the top and can be locked into one of several opening positions.

This means that you can have fresh air coming into the room even if it is raining outside.

These windows will also save you the cost of the window cleaner calling every month because they open into the room, so you can clean the glass on the outside from the inside!

Our Windows and Doors…

Windows and Doors - Sovereign Home Improvements, Essex

As far as doors go, many customers are replacing their front doors with composite doors.

Our 48mm doors are 10% thicker than any competitor and therefore more secure, but we go a step further with the Ultion locking system.

Around 900 homes are broken into every day in the UK and 85% of these are by snapping the lock which can be done with a couple of DIY tools.

In fact, you can watch a video of a burglar breaking a normal lock in just 9 seconds on the Ultion website and then watch him trying to break the Ultion lock.

We believe the Ultion lock is a great investment.

Our composite doors come in a range of no less than 256 colours ranging from contemporary colours to beautiful woodgrain finishes.
