Windows Surrey: What You Need to Know

The Importance of High-Quality Surrey Windows

When it comes to windows in Surrey, quality should be a top priority. Double glazed windows not only provide excellent insulation but also enhance the look and comfort of your property by offering a new look. Here’s why:

Energy Efficiency:

Well-insulated, high-quality windows can significantly reduce heat loss, keeping your home warm in winter and cool in summer. This translates to lower energy bills and a more comfortable living environment.


Modern windows feature advanced shootbolt locking mechanisms that enhance your home’s security compared to older, outdated window systems.


The right windows can dramatically improve your home’s kerb appeal and potentially increase its market value.

Low Maintenance:

Quality windows require minimal upkeep, saving you time and money in the long run compared to older, high-maintenance options.

Types of Replacement Windows to Consider

uPVC Windows:

uPVC windows are a popular choice due to their durability, low maintenance requirements, and excellent thermal insulation properties. They don’t rot, rust or corrode and are easy to clean without needing to be painted.

Aluminium Windows:

For a sleek, modern look, aluminium windows are a strong and durable option that can be customised to suit various styles. Their slim sightlines allow for larger glass areas and more natural light.

Timber Windows:

Timber windows offer a classic, timeless aesthetic that complements heritage properties or homeowners looking to add elegance. Wood is also a natural insulator and timber is an eco-friendly, renewable resource.

In addition to our extensive range of windows, we offer stunning bifold doors and sliding doors. Our bifold doors, available in uPVC, timber, aluminium, and composite options, feature sleek sightlines and effortless operation, perfect for transforming any style or age of property.

Our sliding doors provide excellent functionality and personalisation options, making them a versatile choice for home improvement and design.

Real Homeowner Concerns

Drafts and Cold Spots: Old, inefficient windows can lead to drafts and cold spots throughout the home, causing discomfort and higher heating costs.

Security Risks: Outdated windows and doors with flimsy locking systems pose a security risk and make it easier for intruders to break in.

Rising Energy Bills: Energy-inefficient windows allow heated or cooled air to escape, forcing your HVAC system to work harder and driving up utility costs.

Additionally, she decided to install a new composite front door, adding both security and kerb appeal to her property.

The Benefits of Double Glazed Windows

Windows and doors with double glazing offer many advantages, including:

Thermal Efficiency: The dual panes with an inert gas layer significantly reduce heat transfer, maintaining a consistent indoor temperature.

Noise Reduction: Double glazing dampens external noise pollution, providing a more peaceful home environment.

Increased Security: The two panes are much harder for intruders to breach compared to single glazing.

Condensation Prevention: Double glazing helps prevent condensation buildup on window panes.
