As summer draws to a close, thoughts turn to autumn and jobs to be done in preparation for another winter. Autumn still presents opportunities to enjoy some outdoor time with mild sunny days in the garden or conservatory, and it’s the perfect time to make some home improvements so that your property is in good shape to face the vagaries of a British winter.
Is it time to replace your windows?
With rising energy costs it’s never been more important to make sure your home is as energy efficient as it can be, especially as winter is just around the corner. What about replacing those old single glazed windows that let in all that warm air out and cold air in.
Double glazing technology is so advanced these days that it can dramatically improve your energy efficiency and save you money. Window design and security have also advanced tremendously, and installing stylish quality double glazed UPVC windows will make your property warm, secure and attractive, and ready for whatever winter throws at you.
Do you want another winter cursing the fact that the conservatory is out of bounds because it’s freezing in there – not to mention sizzling in summer? Wouldn’t it be great if you could use it all year round?
Solid tiled roofing solutions
Replacing your old glass roof with a solid tiled roof will make your conservatory feel more like an integral part of your home but you’ll still benefit from great natural light from the glass walls. You can transform your conservatory into an extended living area that is thermally efficient and cost-effective to heat. What’s more, you can add Velux windows or fixed panel skylights for that traditional conservatory feel without any heat loss. Fancy Christmas lunch in the conservatory this year?
It’s also a good time to add a new feature so that you can take full advantage of the last of the sunny days and be prepared for the warmer weather coming next spring and summer. There are a number of attractive and practical solutions for extending your outdoor living throughout the year.
Enjoy outdoor living even in Autumn
An outdoor entertaining pergotex retractable roof lets you enjoy your garden in all weather even snow. The Weinor Plaza Viva retractable Veranda provides for outdoor living no matter what the weather is like. You can use your patio throughout the year as the retractable awning gives protection from the sun and keeps you safe and comfortable from wind and rain – an optional infra-red heater is perfect for the cooler evenings and days. For patios with less sun and more rain, the new Terrazza Pure Glass Patio Roof is the perfect weather protection solution while bringing as much light as possible to your outdoor area.
Making sure your home is ready for winter is an opportunity to make some positive home improvements that will make your home a warm, secure, and enticing place to be in winter, and a great outdoor entertaining and relaxation space to enjoy year-round. And don’t forget you’re not only making the property more attractive and appealing but adding significant value to your home.
