Windows

Windows are a big budget item and a key feature of any building spec or renovation project.

Despite the obvious light considerations, windows offer energy-efficient solutions as well as a design element and aesthetic. Windows will completely transform the exterior of your home and potentially affect the future resale value, so you need to take your time in making the right choice with regard to materials, size and style.
