I’m looking to save money on my energy bills. How can you help?
Replacing old windows and doors is a great way to start. The weather in Cheshire can vary wildly, so it’s essential to keep drafts out and protect your home’s interior. In such cases, uPVC windows, double glazing and composite doors prove ideal. Even bi-folding doors achieve a warmer environment for reduced energy bills.
Composite doors feature hardy timber with an inner core, together with foam insulation that ensures little-to-no airflow between your home and the outdoors. You can even customise these doors for a gorgeous entryway that welcomes friends and family to your Cheshire home.
What are your qualifications?
We know you wish to avoid ‘cowboy’ renovation companies, so rest assured, D&M Home Improvements takes the steps to prove we’re above such practices. Endorsed by the Fenestration Self-Assessment Scheme (FENSA), the official body for double glazing contractors in England and Wales, we also hold membership with the Glass and Glazing Federation (GGF).
In addition, we possess over 40 years of shared experience within our team, and hold the insurance needed to perform anything from general home improvements to the fitting of bi-folding doors and double glazing in the Cheshire region.
How long do uPVC windows last, and how much with they cost?
Since its advent in the 60s, uPVC has surged in popularity. Today, it’s one of the most renowned materials for window frames available – mainly due to its strength and insulation. Most experts agree that you can expect uPVC windows to last around 40 years. The ‘u’ stands for ‘unplasticised’, so it holds an advantage over plastic competitors that warp over time.
Our Cheshire customers appreciate the low cost when looking for home improvements on a budget. If you’re considering a conservatory, for example, uPVC builds cost an average of £6,700. This is far lower than aluminium, which can cost 10% more. Timber can cost even more, reaching prices between £20,000 and £60,000.
Whether you choose composite doors, uPVC windows or Equinox roofing tiles, D&M Home Improvements provides precise workmanship no matter the job. All products also come with their manufacturer warranties.
How can bi-folding doors improve the view from my home?
Living and working locally to Cheshire, we love the spectacular vistas in the region. With bi-folding doors care of our trusted team, you can admire your garden all-year-round. Double glazing fitted within a slim frame ensures internal warmth, so the views won’t come at the cost of comfort.
In the summer months, your bi-folding doors can stack together in a concertina effect for ease of access. This brings the indoors and outdoors together as one space, perfect for summer parties.
