Keep Warm & Safe This Winter With Windrush Door & Window Services

November 22, 2019 Steve Sherbourne

With winter on its way, it’s not too late to assess, repair or replace your current windows and doors. If maintaining your home’s security and structural integrity is important to you, keep reading to discover the benefits to door and window maintenance.

Having assisted many of customers over the years, we have found that door and window issues tend to become more of a problem during the colder months. Unfortunately, many of these problems go unnoticed as there are often no obvious symptoms during warmer periods.

What many people do not realise is that their doors and windows do not necessarily need to display visible issues for them to benefit from regular maintenance check ups. In fact, ensuring your doors and windows are correctly maintained each year offers multiple benefits.

Firstly, well maintained doors and windows are fantastic for security – the majority of burglaries in the UK are opportunistic, meaning burglars often spot an open window or poorly closed door and take their chance. With expensive Christmas gifts laying around in many homes, keeping your doors and windows secure is more important that ever.

It is probably no surprise to hear that poorly maintained doors and windows can also let the wind and rain in, causing damage to your home and discomfort to you and your loved ones. Heat loss is also a common side effect from these issues which will have negative effects on your home’s energy efficacy, increasing heating bills.

If your doors and windows are made from wood, it is especially important to carry out regular inspections as they may swell in damp conditions, making opening and closing difficult.

At Windrush Door & Window Services, we regularly check, repair or replace our clients’ doors and windows to prevent these very problems from occurring in the first place. We find our occasional check ups really help maintain our clients’ confidence and overall security.

On top of the following benefits mentioned, regular maintenance also extends the overall working life of your doors and windows, helping to avoid unnecessary call out fees if anything does go wrong.

If you feel your doors and windows could do with a little TLC to help keep your home secure over the winter break, you can find out more about our range of door and window maintenance services here. If you would prefer to talk to a specialist directly, feel free to contact us online, or by telephone on 01993 701193.

This June Windrush installed 39 Pvcu windows to our student accommodation block at Rewley Abbey Court. The work required them to install the windows while residents were in occupation, some with young children. Windrush carried out a full risk and method statement and appraisal to carry out the works in a safe manner with multi-occupation to consider. Full scaffolding and access booms were used with everything being alarmed and fenced off with appropriate signage in place. The Windrush team involved had all the necessary accreditation holding CSCS cards, asbestos awareness trained, CRB checked etc. The windows were as per our requested specification with Windrush being the most competitive out of the competition. The College are very pleased with all aspects of the work carried out and will be using Windrush on our future projects.

Windrush have installed new pvcu patio doors in the residents homes on site. The window installers being friendly and polite and having a nice demeanour and getting on well with the residents. The work was carried out in a professional manor with their work being clean and tidy all with an insurance baked guarantee. I would have no hesitation in recommending them to others.

I would just like to say that I was very impressed by the two young men who came to do the windows yesterday, they were very efficient, had impeccable manners and they cleared up after themselves which was a joy.

Windrush serviced two Velux windows and re-glazed with new sealed units, re-glazed a bedroom window with three sealed units, and re-glazed a conservatory upgrading sealed units to “Low E Argon” gas and thermal bar

During the School holidays the Windrush team carried out window adaption works for the School. Windrush installed remote window winding equipment to our high level windows that have been a health and safety issue with pupils and staff standing on chairs to open. I can recommend Windrush for their professional approach, competitive pricing and ability to accommodate our requirements during a busy time with many other trades on site. They were willing to change their work schedule to accommodate changing circumstances on site.

The Windrush Team who carried the work out were very professional with the work being carried out during normal School hours. The Health and Safety aspect being covered with the adoption of measures from their risk assessment and method statement being carried out.
