How to Raise the Value of your Home

Double Glazed, Thermally Efficient UPVC Sliding & Hinged Patio Doors, Wickford & Upminster

When you decide to install patio doors in your home in Wickford or Upminster, you can look forward to more natural light, easy and fast access to the garden and an increase in the value of your property. Thermally efficient patio doors mean a cooler environment in the summer and a warmer one in the winter. Energy efficiency is also on the agenda with high quality doors like this, saving you money on fuel bills, and security is not a problem either, thanks to multi point locking systems. Once you have found a reputable company like Essex Trade Windows to supply and install your new doors, the biggest dilemma is which style to choose!


Most patio doors will give your home in Wickford, an edge where style and luxury are concerned, but the two most popular types of patio door are sliding or hinged. Sliding patio doors offer an expanse of glass and lots of light, they are also space saving as they slide back parallel to the wall. You can place furniture directly next to this design of patio door, as it will not create an obstruction when opening or closing the doors. There is usually an unrestricted view of the garden meaning you can watch your feathered friends on the bird table or keep an eye on the youngins as they play.

Hinged or standard UPVC patio doors are favoured by many in Upminster for their charm and classic appearance. They are functional, attractive, available in coloured or wood grain finishes and allow just the right amount of light to enter the home. They are robust, and easily cleaned and maintained giving a long lasting, high performance product.

All of our UPVC double glazed windows and doors are manufactured to Secured By Design standards. This is a police run scheme throughout the UK, with the aim of ‘designing out crime’, and products which come up to the required standard receive Secured By Design Approval.
