Can UPVC Conservatories Save Money On Your Home Improvements?
Whether you live in a town, city or suburbia, adding double glazing or a conservatory has a multitude of positive impacts upon your life, purse and property. Walking down a terraced street for example looking for a starter home that is not a new build can be daunting and disappointing.
Large numbers of old houses built before 1910 are still standing, maybe they don’t have damp anymore, but you can bet that the windows and doors have been repeatedly replaced in the past 100 years. They could also benefit from more living space – think conservatories here!
Most old houses have a certain style and character that some feel double glazing will detract from, and change the whole persona of a home.
But it can now be enhanced in looks and security with a modern conservatory. Improving the house doesn’t stop at the windows and doors anymore and additional extra rooms are created not just for the room but for added value also.
New, or even secondhand conservatories.
They really will create brand new room in your home to enjoy. With build completion times ranging from a few days to a week (depending on the company), a kitchen conservatory type of extension with extra light and ventilation is far better than a conventional extension.
Usually with a flat roof and the look of a square box taking up your garden, an orangery style conservatory will add to your house (or bungalow) a look that is very pleasing either from the outside sat in the garden or from the inside looking out.

The old terrace house will also benefit from the warmth kept in and save money on the heating bills too. There are a wide variety of styles to choose from and your old house can be kept and transformed back into its former glory. Sash windows are also available now in UPVC and they can look very traditional. These windows give the impression of a well cared for home and could make the interior intriguing to the passer by. Everyone people watches but there is a large amount of us who house watch too.
Added insulation will also keep the noise down to such a level that it would hardly be noticed. Many old houses are built near industrial estates and often a train line is not too far away. It may rattle the window of the traditional homes but a double glazed house will be much quieter. Excellent if your home is on a bus route.
The added insulation will not only keep the heat in but it will keep the draughts out. And also on another consideration it will reduce the carbon footprint of the property. Less energy needed to heat it means fewer co2 emissions. UPVC frames are usually guaranteed for 25 years plus and take very little in maintenance to up-keep, just make sure the seals are good!
