Choosing the right window style for your home

Maintaining the architectural integrity and style of your home is a must really as otherwise you may find that you end up looking a little odd in the street.

It is especially important to choose a style of window, material and colour which is consistent with the exterior of your house so that the new windows and doors compliment your property.

Common window styles are Georgian, Edwardian, Casement Windows, Sash Windows, Tilt & turn Windows – so many choices!!

Windows & Planning

Local planning authorities sometimes object to double glazing installations if they are not consistent with your neighbours, especially in areas of conservation and where listed buildings are concerned. That is not to say that you can’t choose a window style a little different to your neighbours, but everything in moderation as they say ;o)

More details on double glazing planning permission here.

If you apply for planning permission to install new windows and doors and your request is denied by the local planning authority, secondary glazing is an alternative you may wish to consider as this can offer similar energy saving benefits.

Secondary glazing involves fitting another window pane on the inside of the existing window and so as it does not affect the exterior of your home any application for planning may be more successful.
