Merry Christmas from all of us at Trade Windows.

Trade in cold spots for hot spots this winter

You know the feeling. The heating is on full, the curtains are drawn, but you can still feel a draught and the whole room feels cold. Which means it might be time to look at replacing your windows.

Even with turning up the thermostat or switching on the gas fire, you might still feel the cold if your windows are old or ill-fitted and it’ll drive up your heating bills. Replacing your windows now rather than later means you can start saving money straight away.

Next time you’re dusting the window sill or even when you’re putting up the Christmas decorations around the windows, you can check for cold spots and draughts yourself. Hold your hand about 30 centimetres away from the frame to see if there are any changes in temperature.

Trade Windows is certified for A energy rated windows by the UK’s national system for rating the energy efficiency of windows, so keeping cosy this winter and preventing draughts is taken care of. Visit our showroom on London Road to see our range of energy efficient windows displayed in our row of full size brick-built houses.






How secure windows can reduce your home insurance

If you’re buying new windows, it’s likely that one of the first questions you’ll ask is, “Will they keep my home secure?”

Improving security is even more important during the winter months, when statistics have shown that home burglaries increase by 20 percent. To provide our customers with the reassurance they need, Trade Windows offers a high security ERA Five Star Guarantee on all windows and composite doors to keep your home safe and save you money on your home insurance.

By choosing to fit windows and doors covered by the ERA scheme, you’ll be eligible to receive benefits worth up to £5,000. Brokers realise that such a high level of security decreases the risk of forced entry into your home, so your premiums may be reduced and payments could be less.

Because windows and doors covered under the Five Star Guarantee Scheme are designed to outsmart burglars, you’ll also receive substantial benefits in the unlikely event of a break in. As well as paying up to £1,000 of home insurance excess, the ERA will give you £1,000 towards the cost of repairing or replacing your window or door and send you a cheque for £1,000 to compensate for the inconvenienced caused.

If you’d like to improve the security of your home and possibly reduce your insurance premiums, call us on 01332 755551 or call into our showroom on London Road in Alvaston. If you place an order for new windows and doors before 31 December, you’ll also receive a 10 percent discount off the cost and have the reassurance that your home will be safer in the New Year.






Discounts for Christmas

December is the month that brings Christmas, social engagements and more often than not, highlights areas of our homes that need improving. The drop in temperature can emphasise draughts that are let in through old doors and windows and the lack of space can push a conservatory up to the top of the priority list.

To help you improve your home in the New Year, Trade Windows are giving 20 percent off roofline orders and 10 percent off the cost of windows, doors and conservatories that are ordered before 31 December.

All discounted items will be fitted in January and February, so you can get the ball rolling and enjoy the benefits straight away.

For inspiration on updating your home, call in at our recently refurbished showroom on London Road in Alvaston. You’ll be able to look at our row of full size brick houses, which are fitted with different styles of doors, windows and interiors so you can see all the products in a realistic setting.

If you’d like a no-obligation quote, bring your rough measurements into us and we’ll be able to give you a price on-the-spot, or if it’s better for you we can arrange for one of our design team to pop out and see you at home
