The plans for #ProjectAttic are coming along nicely, with more decisions being made every day. We’ve given a lot of thought to what the finished look will be, both inside and out, and as we want it to be quite contemporary, the architect has some good ideas on the windows and glazing.
So, I was intrigued when I was invited along to see new plans and products at Everest Home Improvements last week. I’m going to be honest and say I’ve never given much thought to windows, doors and so on before. I’ve never had a conservatory, bought a double glazed door and only recently had some windows replaced in our own home. I guess it’s one of those grown up things that we don’t all get to, and it’s pretty major home improvements isn’t it?
Everest had some interesting information to tell us about though, and I have to admit, I was fascinated! To coincide with the celebration of their 50th Anniversary (everyone knows the name Everest, right?) Everest Home Improvements have launched some rather cool, innovative new products for 2015. I’m always impressed by companies that want to stay ahead of the game, and in particular those that lead the way.
First up, there was new window technology creating the warmest windows Everest have ever made. And they had test results and industry ratings to prove it. Of course, this also makes them super quiet and safe too.
Next there was a very contemporary addition to colours in their Timber range. There’s a new way of constructing the wood window that creates a solid construction, resistant to twisting, and less knots (which aren’t always desirable apparently). The timber is sustainable too, by the way, and comes with a 30 year guarantee against rot and fungus. It was the colours that really caught my attention. Consumers are moving away from white double glazed windows now, and contemporary colours are very much on-trend. Shades such as agate grey, light oak, and chartwell green are very popular, and give so much more choice. A very cool move by Everest I think you’d agree.
Then, finally, thanks to the latest home improvement technology, Everest have improved the range and developed the Exclusive Premium windows. This is where they really seem to have improved the overall look, design and features of the uPVC window. From invisible corner joints to new colours and finishes, and even new handle designs, the choice for the customer is endless. It all makes for flexible and almost bespoke windows too, ensuring that you can really let your design skills loose on your double glazing.
You can find out more about Everest double glazing on their website, if you want to research it further.
It’s really made me think more about my double glazing and mostly how it looks. I really never thought there was so much detail involved, and to be honest, thought one window was pretty much like the next. Well no, that’s definitely not the case!
Have you ever bought new double glazing windows for your property?
Thanks to Everest for a day out at their new Sales Centre – all opinions and comments are honest and my own.
