Homeowners wanting to enhance and protect the value of their property must consider the benefits of installing quality windows and cladding, says Peter Gibson of Homebrite Windows, which features in the television programme Double Your House for Half the Money.
Homebrite Windows provided multiple UPVC windows and a first-in-UK installation of UPVC cladding for a Kent house, which is the focus of the popular programme on Channel 4.
“It’s important that homeowners carefully consider the benefits of upgrading their windows, and make sure they are getting products and services that are suited to their property and have the benefits of professional workmanship, durability and a guarantee,” said Mr Gibson, Homebrite Window’s co-partner. Guarantees ranged from 10-50 years, depending on product. “We were delighted to be able to help Maidstone homeowner Ben Barratt (whose home featured in the programme) extend and improve his house,” said Mr Gibson of the top-notch window and cladding installation.
Maidstone-based Homebrite Windows is a name that has been associated with the home improvement industry for many years. It serves the wider Kent area, offers a wide range of quality products and services, including windows, doors, bi-folding doors, conservatories, and roofline products.
Importantly, its easy-to-use website (www.homebritewindows.com) offers customers a 30-second online quote facility, which is a boon for those wanting to price their work.
What’s more, potential customers can peruse the website to identify many different products and styles of windows and conservatories. They can compare and contrast pricing and quickly make contact with the obliging team at Homebrite Windows for any assistance required.
Mr Gibson noted every job had its own unique set of specifications, and that, having appraised many hundreds over the years, Homebrite Windows was able to offer friendly, pertinent and timely advice to complement the online service.
“I highly recommend Homebrite Windows,” said Mr Barratt, a business development manager whose home was expanded from three bedrooms to five as part of the popular television show about substantially adding to home’s existing value.
“Homebrite Windows were professional and courteous, and the job was completed to an excellent standard and to timetable,” Mr Barratt said. “These are some of the most honest tradesmen you will meet,” he said.
Mr Gibson noted Homebrite Windows had extensive experience in jobs of all sizes, whether that was with a single-window replacement in leafy Ashford or the addition of a quality conservatory for use all year around in sunny Orpington.
“UPVC windows can improve the look and value of your house, and with the availability of double- and triple-glazing they can also markedly improve energy efficiency,” Mr Gibson said, adding that a warm, dry house was a healthy one.
“Conservatories are great for bridging the traditional areas of indoor and outdoor living,” he said. “They are an important addition, and having been involved in many of these projects we at Homebrite Windows can help you find the solution that best meets your needs.” There are many considerations – such as the facing of your house (whether north, south, east or west), fall of light, temperature control – that needed to be factored into any decision.
“One of the exciting new products that we can offer is a zinc-aluminium product, which gives a conservatory roof a tile effect. With these, along with roof lights and velux windows as desired, you really can enjoy all-year-round living,” Mr Gibson said.
