Getting the Most Out of Your Windows

There’s more to glass windows than just letting in light and seeing the view. All glass products are rated on their energy efficiency, with specific types of glass, frames and materials influencing how they heat or cool your home.

Window and door frames are mostly manufactured out of aluminium or timber and play a major role in the energy efficiency and comfort of your home. It’s worth taking the time to investigate the right option for you and your location to ensure high performance, lower energy bills and added value to your home.
