Comments Off on Do I need planning permission for my new windows?
You DO NOT need planning permission if you are replacing your windows for “like for like”
You WILL NEED planning permission if you planning on cutting a new opening and adding new additional windows.
All new or replacement windows require building regulation approval, unless you use an approved registered installer such as Wye Valley Home Improvements.
Wye valley home improvements will carry out a FREE site survey and advice on all building regulations and will always adhere to glazing building regulations as below:-
We will ensure your home is fitted with toughened or laminated glass where required for safety and home security reasons.
We will ensure your windows meet with the required ventilation building regulations and provide trickle vents where required.
We will ensure your home has means of an escape in case of fire, by fitting special fire safety hinges and designing your windows with the relevant size openings or floating mullions to allow easy escape. Or for a fireman wearing full equipment to enter the home.
We will ensure your windows meet with the latest thermal U-Value, therefore improving your homes energy efficiency rating.
Listed building will require a more detailed site survey to discuss individual requirements and solutions as planning permission can be more specialised in these areas.
Comments Off on My windows were a perfect experience from start to finish
A perfect experience from start to finish, Jon came out as agreed measured, gave me a price and a date for fitting. He then confirmed the date and the windows were fitted perfectly. We are so happy with the service and quality.
Jon and his employees are complete professionals, Jon arrived to give me the price, he was quick and efficient and so polite. The fitting teams came on the day agreed, did the job and left the house spotless.
Comments Off on How does double glazing reduce noise?
Outside noise can be reduced by fitting new double glazing units which are argon gas filled, combined with warm edge spacers. Most people find these measures are enough but for houses close to roads we can also provide specialist acoustic laminated glass or triple glazing with one laminated glass barrier in the middle glazing pane.
Comments Off on Does double glazing reduce condensation?
Wye Valley Home Improvements ensure our double glazed units have argon gas filled cavities with a warm edge spacer bar running all around the inside of the unit, combined with specialised glass coatings on the glass to reduce condensation and outside noise whilst also improving home efficiency for heat loss.
