Double Glazing Solutions From Custom Choice Home Improvements Peterborough

Double glazing has come a long way from its origins in the 1970’s. Back then uPVC window replacement gained a bad reputation as companies competed over territories and pricing (shoddy workmanship and faulty materials being top of the list of complaints).

Things are very different now. Yes, there are still shoddy companies, but with improved building regulations and safety first business agencies including SafeLocalTrades who diligently vet their members (including police checks), the British Standards Institute, and the British Fenestration Rating Council, it’s easy to find and choose bona-fide double-glazing companies including Custom Choice Windows of Peterborough.

The materials used in uPVC double glazed windows have improved beyond recognition since those early days – and it’s not only the materials. The designs, colours, and heat-loss improvements are dramatic as well.

Take the Painswick range of flush double glazed windows. They not only look and feel solid, they also no longer have that old-fashioned uPVC double-glazed look. Instead, all you see is pure elegance.

The cross beams in the Georgian style option look exactly like the original wooden windows they more than happily replace. Their flush lines add a rich elegance to any setting, and add on features such as the monkey tail handle and window stay and you have something to be very proud of.

The Painswick collection of windows is also available in a selection of elegant colours including the option for a white inner colour and a different external colour. They are also grained, which helps the quality really stand out.

The Painswick range from the Residence Collection is just one option you can view and choose from when you visit Custom Choice Home Improvements new showroom at 1 Prospect Place, Fengate, Peterborough, PE1 5QP (go here for directions:

uPVC Double Glazing

Whilst the Painswick range is at the top in terms of design and style, it’s not the only option.

For example, our range of casement uPVC windows give you the security of double-glazing with an excellent choice of colours (long gone are the days of white only uPVC windows) and pricing options.

The cavities in these double-glazed units are filled with argon gas to help reduce heat loss even further. This is another major (and welcome) change from the early days of uPVC double glazing.

Window Security

But that’s not all. Every window in the Custom Choice Home Improvements of Peterborough range includes window lock options, window handle and stay options, colour choices, style and design options, security, and heat loss prevention choices – this includes triple-glazed units.

And talking of security, we go beyond the expected range of window locks. Our windows have ani-jemmy protection to stop people forcing your windows open. They also include security stops so your window cannot be opened further than a prescribed limit. Ask about these options when you visit our showroom.

Window Styles

Back in the day, you had a problem if you had a traditional semi-circular bay window you wanted to upgrade to uPVC double glazing. Not so anymore.

Custom Choice Home Improvements can accommodate almost any style of window you need, no matter what the space or size. We’ll happily visit and give you a free quote including expected delivery and installation times (we pride ourselves on our ability to complete jobs on time with minimum disruption to you).

Whether you have a period house or new build, we will have a window design, modern or traditional to suit – and at a budget you can afford. With extensive window finance options including the ultimate 36 months interest free buy now, pay later plans to choose from (subject to status).

Modern double-glazed units have thinner (and yet stronger and more secure) profiles than earlier designs, so they’re a much better fit for traditional house designs, and with the options to go for a grained effect, are almost impossible to distinguish from wood.

Maintenance is no longer a problem either – there’s no warping to fight (windows always open), no annual painting, and of course, they are warmer, far more secure, and enhance the whole look of a property adding value should you ever need to sell.
