aluminium wood windows for barn conversions


January is often a time to reflect on the past year, and look ahead to the future. After spending time at home during the winter, homeowners may be considering how they can make improvements or may be dreaming of building their own unique home.

This could be an opportunity to expand living space or upgrade to triple glazed windows to increase the energy efficiency, and therefore reduce energy bills. This might be the time to embark on a brand new build to create a unique home, in which case energy efficiency and sustainability are sure to be at the forefront of decision making.

Westcoast can provide sustainable, energy efficient glazing solutions to achieve your objectives. Here are suggestions, large and small, that could help you to make improvements to your living space, new build or new development:
