Looking at the most popular Window systems in 2016

Modern windows are highly energy efficient and can be supplied in a wide range of styles.

Modern Windows of 2016

Historically windows have been used to protect properties from damage, permit ventilation and let in natural light. However, the modern windows of 2016 can improve the aesthetic appeal of your property at the same time as reducing the carbon emissions.

Modern windows are highly energy efficient and can be supplied in a wide range of styles, including VELUX windows, materials and colours that can upgrade your property whilst still maintaining the traditional appearance.

Please take a look below as we compare the differences between the most popular Window Systems of 2016.

Slimline uPVC Windows

The ultramodern Slimline range of uPVC frames are designed to allow an increased amount of natural light into your rooms due to the sleek design of the frames. With Slimline windows installed in your property it is possible to increase the amount of daylight by up to 12% compared with traditional uPVC frames. The windows are fitted with energy efficient sealed units and all weather gaskets designed to reduce draughts and the potential for moisture ingress. The Slimline range is suitable for most properties but is particular appealing to properties with smaller apertures where frame thickness could result in a restriction of natural light in the room.

Timber Flush Casement Windows

Timber Flush Casement Stormproof Window Timber Flush Casement Stormproof Window

This type of window is renowned for its traditional look and distinct character. Although simple in design casement windows look attractive in most types of home. If you desire the classic look of timber windows combined with the functionality and security of modern windows then these are the ones for you. Timber casement windows come with a choice of options on timber material, colour finish, frame thickness, sill style and ironmongery. You can choose from the high security espagnolette locking mechanism or the more traditional casement stays and butt hinges. The drainage mechanism ensures that no moisture accumulates in the frames thereby reducing the risks of warping and rotting that are associated with traditional timber windows.

Timber Alternative Windows

If your budget won't stretch to timber windows then the Beaumont Timber Alternative could be an option, especially if you are looking for a combination of affordability, ease of maintenance and modern functionality.

Each window is hand-crafted using age old techniques to replicate the look of a timber window but being based on uPVC. The Deuctone foil finish replicates the look of a timber window but with all the advantages of uPVC.

The Timber Alternative is available in a variety of colours making the product suitable for use on a wide range of properties.

Aluminium Windows

Aluminium, traditionally, was available in white or grey, not very inspiring. The 2013 range of aluminium windows now comes in a vast array of colours. They are stylish, strong, durable, contemporary and low maintenance.

Being highly resistant to moisture, light, dust and UV light these windows are renowned for their longevity thus giving you excellent value for money. Modern aluminium windows are also extremely energy efficient as they use a thermally broken aluminium frame and a polyamide bridge that reduces heat loss.

Really first class experience, great communication throughout, super professional and the installation was the best we've had in terms of fit and finish and (lack of) damage to surrounding areas. Will use again!”Tim Loake
