June was one of the wettest starts to the summer since records began, but rain is nothing new to us Brits.
Summers on the whole do appear to be getting wetter which means we are spending less time in our gardens, so having a perfect space inside the home that allows us to enjoy the outside from within, is becoming more popular.
It also means our homes are having to battle with a lot more rainwater, which could leave your roofline and guttering feeling a little under the weather and you front door looking a little worn.
Here are just some of the home improvements you can make to your home this summer with Trade Windows to enjoy the garden from the inside out and make sure your house is in top condition to handle the downpours.
With all the recent downpours, your roofline has had to worker a lot harder than usual. You may have noticed that it has started to show a little wear and tear, maybe it needs repainting or sanding down to give it a fresh look.
Or due to the heavy rain the gutters have been overflowing damaging your fascia and soffit, they could even be sagging away from the home slightly.
The low-maintenance alternative is our Roofline range. It works by replacing your old wooden boards with maintenance-free PVCu fascias and soffits. We also fit our own aluminium guttering system, which reduces the chance of your gutter leaking.
Enjoy your garden from the inside out with a Trade Windows Conservatory
With the wet weather, it means we spend more time inside and less time in our gardens. If you have spent a lot of time and care on your garden to make it look good and be an enjoyable space to relax in, it can be quite frustrating not to be able to use it as often as we would like.
An inside space like a conservatory or an orangery is a great way to bring the outside and in and allow you to enjoy the drawn out evenings and longer lasting light.
Our range of conservatories provide a stylish space for you to enjoy your garden from inside your home. You may want to blend your conservatory with your property and you can do with our tiled roof system. Its tiled finish gives the appearance of a traditional tiled roof and its fantastic thermal efficiency means you can use your conservatory throughout the entire year.
Give your home some curb appeal
If the British weather has started to take its toll on your front door, then it’s time to replace it. If you’re fed up with draughts you may want to think about getting a composite door.
Composite doors are one of the most popular trends on the entrance door market. Made from the best combination of materials, composite doors provide a durable and stronger alternative to traditional wooden doors but still offer a fantastic woodgrain look.
Our composite doors come in a range of styles and designs with different glass options to customise the door to your taste.
Old 19th century timber windows looked great but didn’t offer a high level of performance modern windows do with their advanced hardware and design.
Flush sash windows give you that authentic timber look but with all the benefits of a modern PVCu window. Our Modus flush sash windows look great, keep the heat in and stop draughts.
When closed, the window sits flush against the frame to get that authentic timber look and with 30 colours and woodgrain finishes, there’s a style for every taste.
