Replacing windows in your home — Fenbro’s expert advice

Written by

Reading Time: 5 minutes

Replacing windows in your home is a significant project that can enhance your home’s energy efficiency, security, and aesthetic appeal. This process is not only about improving the look of your home but also about adhering to the stringent building regulations in the UK and Ireland. Proper window replacement can lead to substantial savings on energy bills, increased property value, and improved indoor comfort.

In the UK, window replacements must comply with Building Regulations Approved Document L, which mandates certain energy efficiency standards. These regulations require that new windows meet specific U-value ratings to ensure minimal heat loss. For example, the U-value for new windows should not exceed 1.4 W/m²K for replacement windows. Similarly, in Ireland, the Building Regulations Technical Guidance Document L sets out the requirements for energy efficiency, which new windows must meet to reduce carbon emissions and improve energy savings.

In addition to energy efficiency, security is a critical consideration. Fenbro’s windows adhere to the PAS 24:2016 standard, which ensures enhanced security performance. This standard is essential for providing protection against potential break-ins, making your home safer.

Aesthetic appeal is another important aspect. At Fenbro, we offer a wide range of window styles and finishes to match your home’s architectural style, whether it’s a traditional Victorian terrace or a modern new build. Our expert window fitters ensure that the installation process is smooth and meets all regulatory requirements.

In this guide, Fenbro, your trusted partner in window replacement, provides expert advice on every aspect of the process. From understanding window replacement costs to choosing the right window fitters, we’ve got you covered. We ensure that your new windows look great and function efficiently and comply with all relevant regulations to provide maximum benefits for your home.
