Choosing windows and doors

Picking you windows and doors is often a matter of personal taste or style, however, as they are one of the biggest single items of expenditure it is important to spend time looking at the options available. The three main factors to consider are cost, design and energy performance. The shape and size will have a knock on effect on how you dress the windows, e.g. curtains, blinds, may become expensive or tricky to install. Your architectural designer will guide you on the choice of double versus triple glazing with the latter having come down in price and become the norm on most new builds.
