Black UPVC Window & Door Frames Add Value

Posted: September 13th, 2011

There has been a significant recent upsurge in enquiries about coloured and particularly black UPVC window and door frames in areas with a high percentage of listed buildings such as Sevenoaks and Maidstone, Kent. Black is a practical choice as windows appear large and are easily transformed into either traditional, period or contemporary style. More customers of FENSA registered Essex Trade Windows are opting for black or other colours such as cream, grey, green, or woodstain instead of standard white. Black window frames and door frames are slightly more expensive than white but less pricey than other colours like rosewood etc. The additional cost of black window and door frames is often a very good investment as they can significantly increase the value of the property.

Tudor or Elizabethan style homes benefit from the authentic look and feel of black wnodow and door frames, especially when teamed with standard square or diamond leaded designs. Double glazed UPVC frames from Essex Trade Windows are guaranteed for 10 years against warping and discolouration. We also have a great range of stunning composite doors in several attractive colours with optional distinctive glass inserts. Our doors are also fully secure, being fitted with the latest innovative multipoint locking systems as standard.
