Amber Windows recommends a full replacement of the old timber with a Upvc replacement. Many of the existing wooden components are made from softwood which decays and deteriorates over time. Because softwood rots from the inside you will not realise that you have a problem until it is too late.
uPVC is a very popular choice in the UK today for Fascias, Soffits and Gutters with over 85% of buildings benefiting from this highly durable, cost effective, and environmentally friendly product. It is now widely accepted that the level of maintenance burden and technical performance of timber, fascias and roofline, is no longer acceptable when compared with uPVC Fascias and Soffits. uPVC will not rot, warp, bend or discolour.

Yes, we are able to remove an existing porch and base should this be required, and then dispose of it for you. We currently recycle almost 92% of waste, timber, glass, pvcu, cardboard, brick, plastic wrapping, metal and paper.
If the front porch you want built is less than 3m² in floor area and not within 2 metres of any boundary which fronts the highway, you do not need planning permission or building regulation approvals. However, if the porch you want built has a floor area bigger than 3m² then don’t worry as Amber Windows will apply for the necessary building regulations or planning permissions on your behalf

When buying new windows, one of the most important things to look out for is the Windows Energy Rating (WER). They work in a similar way to the energy ratings on electrical goods.
The ratings go from A++ (very efficient) to G (incredibly inefficient). To comply with building regulations, all windows have to be at least C-rated. Our windows are rated at A or A+.
Up to 80% of the energy lost through a window occurs at the edge of the glass because of the highly conductive nature of aluminium spacers. Our unique Amb-e-therm® sealed units block this heat loss and help to reduce your energy costs.
Yes, it does! While it won’t completely block out all noise, our unique Amb-e-therm® sealed units can reduce noise transmission by 2dB.
We will advise you on whether or not planning permission is needed, if it is we will apply for the necessary planning permission on your behalf.

Fascias are the horizontal band below the roofline which the guttering attaches to. Most fascias in the UK are now predominantly made of uPVC. Soffits are the underside of the fascia. Together they transport water away from your home.
Although our composite doors have an authentic looking timber appearance, it is finished with an ABS plastic skin and a UPVC edge banding material. This finish combined with our solid timber core means the door is virtually maintenance free and will never require painting.
Double-glazing is a window consisting of two panes of glass separated by a layer of trapped argon gas. The layer of argon gas has 67% of thermal conductivity of air, making it a poor conductor of heat, thus keeping warm air trapped inside your home and helping improve energy efficiency. This extra pane of glass also acts as a secondary barrier to noise, helping keep your home nice and quiet, and strengthens the window to improve security.
