At Skipton Properties we like to source our materials locally wherever we can. This is why we are using David Brunskill of Keighley, West Yorkshire, for our all our windows and doors at our developments, Falcon Park in Settle, North Yorkshire and Jacobs Lane, Haworth.
A member of the Quality Assurance Association you can feel at ease that your windows and doors not only look the part but are well made and secure. All of their window frames and doors carry a 10 year guarantee.
We choose uPVC windows and doors at all our developments. A few people ask us why we don’t use wood, but the benefits of uPVC far outweigh those of traditional wood – unless of course you want a solid oak front door, but that might be beyond the budget! The Directors of Skipton Properties approve of uPVC to such an extent that they’ve had their own windows replaced.
We’ve never liked the fact that wood windows need a repaint every 5 years. It’s a job none of us like doing and if it isn’t done your windows can soon look like they are falling apart. uPVC on the other hand never rots, flakes or fades. It just needs a good clean every now and then. Wood can also warp whereas uPVC is much tougher and durable, and also much more secure. Another bonus of using uPVC is that it is an insulator – you’ll lose a lot less heat from your home.
The downside? We don’t think there is one. We have challenged our customers in the past to tell the difference when standing in front of their house and more often than not they can’t. uPVC has come along way and the style of your home no longer has to be compromised. There is now even a sash version!
