Keep Up-To-Date with News from Heath Windows and Doors Cardiff.

We are passionate about home improvements and particularly about windows and doors.

We see windows and doors as more than something that opens and closes to let you or the light in and out. We see them as extensions of your personality and an expression of the way that you like to live. We love getting to know our customers and the reasons why they choose particular windows and doors. Do you choose a brightly coloured door or will you fall back to a safe neutral position when you come to the final choice? Will you change from the existing colour and arrangement or will you make a radical change.

These journeys fascinate us and we are here to help make that journey exciting for you. A major purchase for your home should be exciting and give you pleasure for many years to come. Our news pages help to give you some insight to our personality and help you think more about the choices you make.

As always, if you have any questions, please get in touch.

Miall and the team at Heath Windows and Doors.

Secure doorThe Best Way to Prevent Burglary is to Make Sure Your Doors and Windows are Secure.

Crime is on the increase with the return to relative normal. While we may have been concerned about COVID we've been able to feel safer, with burglars also being on 'lockdown'. Now, according to the UK Crime Stats Website, burglary is increasing again. While Cardiff is a safe place to live, it remains for the homeowner to be vigilant. Ensuring that your doors and windows do not offer the opportunistic burglar an easy way in is the first thing to check.

Secure doors are important when it comes to protecting your home. After all, it’s the first way an intruder will try to enter your home. Find out how secure your doors are here. If your doors have the following features then you’re actively reducing your risk of burglary:

1. A Deadbolt Lock

This is a must-have for any front door. However, don’t buy the cheapest one you can get hold of. It’s worth spending more money on a high-quality lock, with a throw bolt that’s at least an inch long. Deadbolt locks of a lower quality tend to have throw bolts that are less than an inch. So, if your door has one of these locks already, check to see if the measurement of the throw bolt is correct; it will need to be replaced if it’s not.

2. Secured Door Hinges

The hinges of your door can offer intruders an easy way in to your home if they are not secured properly. Ensure that there’s a setscrew in the hinge, as well as fast-riveted pins and safety studs in place, to stop the hinge pin from being removed and the door from being lifted up and off. So, make sure all door hinges are sturdy and secure, including the ones on your shed!

3. A Door Chain or Limiter

Both of these options provide you with added protection. How? Well, firstly, they’re able to prevent intruders from being able to easily gain access into your home. These door-controlling mechanisms give you the opportunity to open the door ever so slightly before anyone, such as a stranger, at the door can force their way into your home.

4. A Spy Hole

This enables you to see who is at the door without having to open the door at all. A spy hole is a security accessory that once you have installed you’ll wonder how you lived without one! With a spy hole, you have the privilege of seeing who is at the door but they can’t see you. The beauty of this essential security measure is that you can make a more informed decision about answering the door by being able to visually identify the person.

5. Laminated Glass Panels

If your front door features a glass design, make sure it’s made of laminated glass. Laminated glass is much more difficult to break so it’ll give burglars a tougher time trying to break in. The last thing burglars want is to get caught so if they attempt a break-in and it’s too hard, they won’t stick around.

Be sure to replace glass panels with laminated glass or, alternatively, purchase a special film to stick on over the glass.

If you’re worried your front door isn’t secure enough and it is insecure by nature of it being an old door anyway, it may be worth replacing it altogether. Be sure to take a look at our range of doors that not only provide the highest standard of security, they offer an attractive looking front entrance. Give us a call on 02920 650 854 or pop in and see us. We’ll happily help you to explore the options without obligation.

Things To Consider When Replacing Windows

Good windows will last a long time, but eventually all windows need replacing. You might be investing in a fixer-upper, renovating the old family home, or making eco-friendly updates when you realize that you need new windows.

Luckily, there are tons of beautiful choices out there. In either wood or vinyl, selections in every type of glass imaginable allow you to completely change the interior and exterior of your home. A new window breathes new life into every building that gets one.

Here are some things you should know about replacing windows.

New windows are a wonderful luxury. They keep your house warm, generally look beautiful, and can help the house stay cleaner. They are an investment, but that doesn’t mean that you have to overspend.

Take a look at these five mistakes people make when buying windows. By planning better, you can stretch your investment further.

Spending the Wrong Amount

The right amount is what will truly save you energy £££'s during the life of the window. Old windows are drafty, leaky, and foggy. They let your precious heat spill right out the siding! Often, they collect dew or frost as well.

Five Reasons to Get Patio Doors This Summer

Patio doors bring in natural light and promote easy access to the back garden. They can provide an added layer of security if you pick the right one and they add a touch of character to your home. If you’re wondering if we have the patio door set for you, just come on in to our showroom! We have all kinds of options.

In this post, we look at five reasons to get patio doors this summer.

Let in the Light

Probably the biggest reason to get patio doors is to let in light. The large amount of glass is a nice decorative element but it’s also important for getting light into your home. Most people have patios attached near their kitchen or dining room and letting light into those areas is so important!

Employment Gets the Best Results

Companies that subcontract their work are extremely common, but it’s rare to find a team that fully employs their staff. In the window and door industry, great results come from employment. People who are employed are retained longer with the same company, are less rushed, and make fewer mistakes.

Retention Counts

Developing expertise takes time. Our staff can stay with us for extra training because we employ them. Subcontractors, on the other hand, don’t necessarily get the training they need to become an expert window and door installer.

Great windows and doors take some expertise to install. Not only does quality count on simpler windows and doors, but many people looking to replace their windows and doors are looking for an upgrade.

Not all showrooms are created equal. And not all showrooms have a curated selection after 30 years in business! Come visit us in South Wales to see all the beautiful quality products our family has to offer.
