There are two important things to consider when researching window installations – the reputation of the company you are purchasing from and the characteristics of the typical windows it makes. Depending on the characteristics of a product, it can appeal to different types of customers.
Knowing the durability of windows, their efficiency, resilience and protection is key in making the right choice for your home. Also, look out for guarantees, especially those that include broken glass.

Restore the functionality of your elements as soon as possible. For example, if you have a door that is likely to malfunction due to damage, getting a replacement quickly is wise.

Doors and windows play a big role in your home decor – this is how you come home and let in air and sunshine. Therefore, you should consider giving them the treatment they deserve.
With the right windows and doors you can give your home the effect you want – both inside and outside.
External. Front doors are the final element in the front look of any home. Hence, depending on the style and color of your home, choosing your front door is a surefire shot.
The attractiveness of your door is also important if you are planning to sell your home as the door can add value – especially if it offers great security. Traditional veneer doors are best for antique features, especially with added glass details.

If you want something with a modern twist then consider a PVCu door. Aside from the two most popular options, you can find many alternatives depending on the style – a fiberglass reinforced plastic door, a sliding door, a folding door or even a French door.
Aside from style, safety is very important. So make sure your door has locks or is easy to install.
Intern. As a large part of the interior design, the doors should be consistent throughout the house and complement the overall style and ambience.

Take doors that are folded in two, for example. Doors like this are usually flat, large panes of glass that can fold back on their own. They are connected in pairs with hinges and hung on a rail.
They are great for making the most of the space available. You can use dual doors to let in fresh air, or you can open them all the way for a nice view.
Double or single wing. A traditional British style made up of two slightly overlapping pieces that you can slide up or down within the frame. You can even go with a frame; especially if part of the window is movable (mostly the floor).
Wing. This window has an attached frame that you can swing forward or backward like a door. It can have a side, top, or bottom frame – sometimes it can even be a combination of several.

Bay. At least three panels at different angles are required for these windows to show their effect on the room when they protrude through the wall.
Skylight. A skylight, also known as a skylight, can be built into a niche or directly into the room. With these windows you get more natural light and fresh air. They are at an angle of 45 degrees and are supplied with a central pivot.

Dormer. This type of window offers more headroom since it is intended to be installed in an eaves. They are similar to skylights in that they also work well for ventilation and natural light. Most often they are used for attics and top floors.
Slip. Made from two simple panes of glass, these windows are very similar to patio doors and can be moved from side to side. Usually they have a double or three lane system, which means you can slide back one window at a time.
Tilt and rotate. The reason these windows have this name is because of their ability to open a standard hinge in or out. Because of this function, they fit well in any room.
Awning. These windows are open to the outside and hinged at the top, so that they ideally supply the room with plenty of air and natural light. Their mechanism is similar to that of the tilt window.
