What does ‘home’ mean to you? In most cases, at the forefront of your mind will be a space that provides comfort for you and your family. A huge amount of reassurance comes from the feeling of safety, and luckily there are a number of precautions you can take to ensure the security of your home is optimised.
At Clement Windows, we are able to deliver high quality, high security, steel windows and doors to fit your bespoke designs, offering support at every stage of the process.
Securing your home
Windows and doors are probably the most important factors in securing your home but are all too often neglected in favour of other automatic security systems.
Although the front door is the most common entryway to your home, windows are generally the most fragile and therefore the easiest points of entry for unwelcome visitors.
It is important to make sure that all possible entry points to your home are up to scratch when it comes to security.
As a recipient of the Best of Houzz awards 2021 in both the design and customer service categories, Clement Windows has been recognised by the online home improvement platform for unrivalled excellence in the steel window industry for six years running, as a result of the glowing testimonials given by both our commercial and residential customers.
At Clement Windows, our number one priority is providing a quality product and excellent service to our customers. Our steel windows, doors, rooflights and screens are approved by some of the most exclusive accreditors, in order to assure our customers that they’re getting the best of the best.
According to Barbour ABI’s Economic & Construction Market Review, total contract awards for 2020 reached £57billion, despite a 5% fall due to the COVID pandemic.
The UK construction industry is huge and moves at a fast pace and companies need to keep up if they are to meet quality benchmarks and health and safety standards, something that became only too apparent when COVID struck last year and a whole host of changes needed to be introduced in order to keep projects going.
At Clement Windows we are proud of our heritage as manufacturers of high quality steel windows and doors and we have worked hard to achieve and maintain a number of professional accreditations that reflect our commitment to excellence, providing our customers with peace of mind when selecting us as partners for commercial projects.
To gain these accreditations, business must submit to regular assessment and testing and meet a minimum standard and only members who achieve 100% pass rate gain the use of the mark. Below we explain a little bit more about some of the accreditations we hold.
Here at Clement Windows, we’ve had the pleasure of overseeing some truly beautiful and inspiring home design projects and commercial spaces over the years. Whilst we’ve shared insights into how our steel windows, screens and doors can be used for unusual projects and growing trends such as garden rooms or exercise studios, several of our recent projects have highlighted another growing trend in home and interior design: the wine cellar.
If you’ve always had a penchant for wine and enjoy building up a bit of a collection, why not consider storing and showcasing it proudly within your home with its very own room?
At Clement Windows Group, we work with a huge range of architects and building professionals on a variety of commercial and residential projects. We know how important it is to choose the right architect to work on an individual project, so we’ve put together some key considerations to help you when you’re thinking about making this important decision.
Following our look at the changing priorities among homebuyers that have arisen as a result of spending more time at home, this month we thought we’d have a look at the trends that first arose during the lockdown period and look set to stay with us in the long-term.
Throughout the lockdown period, the majority of households have had to get used to spending a lot of time at home, causing many to reflect on the things they’d be looking for in their next property.
According to a Rightmove survey earlier in June 2020(1), 39% of buyers have reassessed their priorities as a result of the pandemic, with 63% wanting a larger garden or access to garden space and 43% looking for a bigger home in general. Furthermore, similar research conducted by Zoopla found that 22% of house hunters would prioritise a home office space (rising to 35% for those aged between 35-49) and 21% see lower household running costs as a ‘must-have’(2).
So, whether you’re looking to make the move to your next home or are considering taking on a home improvement project to get more from your current space, we’ve pulled together some inspiration to help get you started.
Kitchen extensions have become popular home improvement projects for opening up the layout of the home and creating multiple areas for dining, socialising and lounging – a desirable aspect for many when looking to create their dream, modern home or facilitate a growing family.
With most of us spending a lot more time within the home at the moment, it can be a good time to look around and get some inspiration for your plans. We’re taking a closer look at some of the stunning results that can be achieved with a kitchen extension to help you get started.
The garden room is a trend falling under an outdoor-design hybrid and has gathered pace in recent years as a desirable addition to the home to create a new, flexible space that can also add to the total house value.
