One of the most popular home improvement projects undertaken by people looking to update their surroundings is adding new windows and doors. This just happens to be one of the many services offered by the team of professionals at Lewis Glass.
The decision to update your exterior doors is rarely on the top of your home improvement list. However, your entry doors are a huge reflection on the overall look of your home. We all know there’s only one chance to make a first impression, and your doors are the first thing guests and visitors see when they enter your home. Old, weathered doors with outdated hardware, worn hinges and damaged weatherstripping detract from your home’s curb appeal. Your primary entrance doors are subject to the extremes of seasonal weather and suffer the abuse of daily use. Replacement doors are a great way to upgrade the look of your home. A new full-system door is highly customizable and can be constructed with many different styles of glass, hardware and panel designs to suit your interior and exterior decor. New doors also offer an added measure of security to your home.
Ten year warranties are just one of the many benefits of installing replacement windows in your home. Regardless of the style you choose, your new windows are customizable to suit your available frame space, which is important for owners of older century homes full of unusually sized and shaped windows. There are many different window styles, including single- and double-hung, single and double sliders, three-lite sliders and casement windows. For sweeping panoramic views, bow and bay windows are great additions, adding value and esthetic appeal to any living space.

Listed buildings are those that have been protected by law from any changes to the building without Listed Building Consent. Usually, work to the windows and doors will always need consent as the effect of the work may not be easily determined.
If you are the owner of a Listed Building, contact your local authority for an application form for Listed Building Consent. It is advisable to get some advice from the conservation officer before applying as if your application is likely to be rejected, this could save you time and money.
CADW (Welsh Hertiage) or English Heritage are always notified of applications for work on Listed Buildings and they usually contact further bodies to discuss the most important applications. Normally, buildings listed Grade I or Grade II are of outstanding national interest and these are the applications that are usually rejected, but those with Grade III are often granted consent.
A decision on your application usually takes around 6‐8 weeks and you have 6 months to appeal any rejection to the Department of the Environment, Transport and the Regions.
CADW or English Heritage condone the use of secondary glazing and so even though, any changes you make on Listed Buildings need to be considered “like-‐for-‐like”, you may be allowed to upgrade your specifications to help boost insulation and draught-proofing, so long as you ensure that the character of the building as a whole is not affected.
To enquire about the installation of secondary glazing to your property, please call 01244549449 today.Posted in Commercial, Double Glazing News, Windows & Doors | Leave a comment December 9, 2015
