How Do I Make My Home’s Front Door More Secure?

According to The Office for National Statistics there were an estimated 800,000 home burglaries in England and Wales in the year up to March 2015, a worrying statistic that means the risk of burglary is an issue we should all be paying attention to. Another troubling statistic is this: 67% of burglars gain access through a property’s front door. Only 3% of those occur as a result of the door accidentally being left open. This is why it makes sense to ensure every home’s front door is secure as possible. Some simple ways to improve the security of your front

What are A+ Rated Windows?

Figures from The Energy Saving Trust reported that as much as 20% of a home’s heat loss occurs through its windows and doors. This increases the household’s fuel bills and its carbon footprint.  Since energy prices are permanently on the rise it makes sense for homeowners to make their property as thermally efficient as possible. The thermal efficiency of a window is independently verified by the British Fenestration Rating Council (BFRC); an organisation formed to develop an energy rating system specific to windows and doors. The resulting system shares similarities with those used on domestic appliances like fridges, freezers and

How to Keep Flies Out Of Your Conservatory

A conservatory is a popular extension for the modern home (70% of buyers said a conservatory made a property more desirable).  Better yet, they can be built relatively inexpensively, providing extra living space for a modest sum.  During the summer, they afford homeowners a means of enjoying the sunshine without exposing themselves to the outdoors – and, given the right insulation and glass, they can do the same throughout autumn and winter, too. Unfortunately when you open all your conservatory’s windows and the doors, the space can become a magnet for flies and other insects. If you find yourself sharing

7 Hilariously Translated Home Signs

A house isn’t a home until it has at least one positive affirmation, message or slogan affixed to the wall. Things like “What I Love About My Home is who I Share it With”, “This Family Lives On Love and Laughter” or the classic, “Home Sweet Home” (which, fun fact, happens to have originated from the title of a popular 19th Century song). It might seem as if every home in the English speaking world is kitted out with plaques designed to promote positive-thinking, but is it just us that have adopted this cliché trend in home décor in our

How Does The Direction of Your Home Affect Your Conservatory?

How Does The Direction of Your Home Affect Your Conservatory?

If you’re thinking of getting a conservatory built, you should take a moment to think about where the conservatory will go and which direction it will face. If you live in the northern hemisphere (which we will assume you do for the purposes of this guide), then you will find that north-facing conservatories will be fairly cool, while south-facing conservatories will get quite warm in the summer. The opposite is true for people who live in the southern hemisphere. When Will Your Conservatory Get the Sun? As a general rule, north-facing conservatories will be cold during the winter, and south-facing

What to Ask When Buying UPVC Windows

Installing double glazing and new window frames is a great idea if you want to boost the energy efficiency of your home, or cut down on noise pollution, but new UPVC windows can be a significant investment. This is why, before you choose an installer, it pays to do your homework. Here are a few suggestions for questions you should ask your window installer. Do you have a showroom where I can see the products in person? The pictures that you see in a catalogue probably look good, but it can be hard to visualise how those same windows will
