5 steps to choosing the right windows

Matt Higgs, co-owner and director of glazing specialist Kloeber, shares his thoughts on the considerations you should make before picking this element of your scheme

Specifying the windows is a major part of any home building project, so it’s important to be sure that you’re making the right investment. If you’re a self builder or renovator, there are some key things to consider before making your selection.

1 Decide on style

Consider the style of fenestration you want and how well it will fit in with the architecture of your property. You need to think about the material the window frames will be made from, the colours you prefer and how the units will open and close – there are so many options out there. Think about how you will use them in your home when it’s complete – like whether they are going to be in an area that gets a lot of sun or a room that doesn’t see much use. The things which are important to you, whether it’s insulation values, aesthetics or security, are all points you need to consider.
