When deciding to install new double glazed windows at their property, whilst there are a number of different types of windows on the market, lots of homeowners will opt for tilt & turn windows. These really are a brilliant choice, and they are arguably one of the most convenient types of windows available. The fact that they both tilt inwards for ventilation and also open fully if required to as well makes them so popular.
Once you have decided that you’d like to install tilt & turn windows, you will still have a number of other decisions to make before installing new windows at your property. If you didn’t realise this would be the case and you’re wondering what else there is to decide, keep reading today. Below we have looked into the important things to consider before you go ahead and invest in tilt & turn windows for your property.
Whether you’re going to incorporate them into other windows
Think about where you’re going to be installing the new windows and whether you’d like to incorporate the tilt & turn style into any other type of window. For example, they are commonly used in both bay and bow windows, and they can look amazing in this type of design. So, consider whether this is something you’d be interested in doing.
The material you’d like the windows to be made from
More often than not these days, homeowners will opt for uPVC tilt & turn windows and they are known for being affordable, low maintenance and long-lasting. However, with options such as aluminium available as well, it is worthwhile looking into the most popular materials before deciding which you’d like your tilt & turn windows to be made from.
Which colours the windows need to be
The vast majority of window companies will have a range of colours available for you to choose from when you’re investing in new windows too. Take some time to consider which colour would best suit your home and whether you’d like your windows to match your external doors. You may find that something slightly less traditional is actually perfect for your property.
Your preferences in terms of glazing options
Whilst you may already know that you’d like to have double glazing in your tilt & turn windows, there are other additional glazing options to think about. Windows are available with a variety of glazing, including Georgian Bar, leaded lights and obscure glass, so think about whether any of these other options are required for the different rooms in your home.
The hardware you’d like on the new windows
It is highly likely that you will be able to customise the hardware on your tilt & turn windows as well, so it is important to think about what you’d like to have in this regard. Consider which styles, materials and colours will suit your home’s interior design and whether you’d like to have matching hardware in every single room or if mix and match would be better.
Which company you’re going to choose for the installation
Of course, you will also need to think about which double glazing company you’re going to turn to for your new windows. It is essential to do your research when choosing a company to help you make the right decision. So take some time to look into your local companies and figure out which will be best to help you with this home improvement project.
