Update your windows

Notes:

  • This is the perfect opportunity to get a high standard of windows with a host of benefits. Upgrading to double glazed windows means you are affording your property a number of improvements, including:
    • Better insulation – this means heat is retained in your home, resulting in lower energy bills and a cozier property
    • Noise reduction – this is an important benefit if you live in a noisy area or on a busy street. Double glazing can significantly reduce the amount of noise heard through your windows
    • Increased security – double glazed windows are more secure, thicker and less likely to break. They also provide added security against weather damage and leaks
    • Increase in property value – whether you’re remodeling in order to get your property ready for the market, or you will be looking to sell in the future, then double glazing will certainly add value.

Add insulation to the attic
