There is a huge range in the glass types available when designing or replacing the glass windows and doors in your home.
When choosing the glass that is used to make up new windows or doors, homeowners have a considerably large choice in the type of glass that they would like – each with varying functions and aesthetics. The glass that is used in window and doors can be customised to suit individual preferences. This includes different combinations of thickness, size, tint, colour, and film.

What is a Building Inspection?
A building inspection is an examination by qualified professionals which identifies faults and hazards in a property. These can include anything from maintenance and safety issues to serious structural faults or damage. Often the problems identified are not immediately visible or apparent to the untrained eye. Special equipment may be used to gather more information. After the inspection, a report is provided which details the issues. This allows home owners and potential buyers to make informed decisions.
There are several options when it comes to heating your home, and the right choice will depend on your individual circumstances. Before you even consider which type of heating system will be right for you, consider how you can make your home more efficient at retaining heat. Overlooking this step could cost you dearly in the long run, resulting in the need for a more powerful heater which perpetually struggles against cold draughts and escaping heat.
