WELCOME TO 2016 – THE YEAR OF SPECTACULAR GLAZING

 

USE THIS YEAR TO UPGRADE YOUR HOME TO A MODERN UTOPIA

 

A key trend identified for 2016 is natural light and how best to illuminate your home with inspired glazing designs. The Foster and Co Group know that this is a very important factor when designing a construction project and the end result should be a living space is an absolute delight to be inside, an escape from the realities of the fast moving world outside.

It is said that natural light is not only vital to create a calming sense but also it has considerable health benefits. Well-lit environments that stream natural light throughout are thought to increase productivity, comfort and general wellbeing.

It seems that as our cities and towns grow around us, both towering in to the sky and expanding throughout the country side, people feel claustrophobic and trapped. This is likely the reason that open plan living has taken the world by storm in particular in the UK. With open plan living comes space. The space is accentuated by light from large glazed walls, cleverly placed windows and doors.

It is no doubt a benefit when your living space is able to open up and combine with outside space. Having the ability to connect with the outside is a real advantage and can have a positive effect on your living environment. Whether you choose to entertain, spend time with the family or enjoy a solitary moment, all can be emphasized by having glazing that literally brings the outside in.

In the past, a window was just a window but now, you can be creative and clever with your designs and not only introduce light but make features that have the wow factor throughout your home. The types of colours, shapes and styles across this industry is now vast. To start your imagination running wild, why not take some time to research what is available including the link below which shows examples of fresh and contemporary ideas.

If you are looking to revamp your home, windows and doors could be the answer. The Foster and Co Group have specialists available to work with you to design your ideal layout, purchase the perfect product and install to a high quality standard.

Windows and Bi-folding Doors North London and Hertfordshire

Foster and Co Windows and Bifolds know how important it is to have good products installed in your property. Whether this is a commercial building or a home, having safe, secure and stunning products is a must!

Many property owners assume that having new Windows and Bifolds is just a face lift for you property, thinking that it is just a method of improving the aesthetics of a building and making it look modern and attractive. Although of course, this may be true for many, Foster and Co Windows and Bifolds know that having great products is more about making sure that your home is not just up to the require standards on energy but also that you as the owner can ensure that the building is protected. This may mean that it is as break-in proof as possible as well as being as energy efficient as the top of the range products will allow.

A wonderful article shows how life changing new Windows and Bifolds can be. A Hospital Hall at Kettering General Hospital was in serious need of refurbishment. This included the windows which not only look old but also were not secure and beneficial to the building. After being asked to provide a quote, a local glazing company offered to complete the works free of charge. This is a fantastic opportunity for the hospital and means that a whole community has gained from the newly refurbished Hall.

The Foster and Co Group are also involved in our community, sponsoring various children’s clubs and assisting schools with maintenance and small construction projects as needed. We feel that working with your community is very important for local companies as it shows your support and that we are a credible and caring company that is not like any Builders.

If you are interested in the Foster and Co Group and how we can assist in your own construction projects, then give us a call and our friendly office team will be happy to assist you.

HOW SECURE ARE YOUR WINDOWS AND DOORS?

 

Do Your Windows And Doors Meet The New Security Regulations?

 

On the 1st October 2015, regulations changed on the security of your windows and doors. Many people should not worry about this as it is more for the Manufacturers and Suppliers that these regulations apply too. However, The Foster and Co Group believe that Homeowners should be aware of any information that relates to the security of their homes and properties.

It has long been known that the UK Building Regulations sometimes are confusing and for many, frustrating. When the Coalition came in to power in 2010, one of their missions was to simplify regulations and remove as much red tape as possible. One issue that the Coalition wanted to tackle was to establish a single minimum security standard for new homes. This has now come in to play within the construction industry and relates to any door which provides entry into the main property.

The new regulations only apply to new products being installed from 1st October 2015 and they do not suddenly render your existing doors and windows unsecure nor does it imply that you must change all your current windows and doors to new products. However, with this in mind, it may be worth considering why these new regulations have come in to place and whether you would like to make sure you home is the most secure it possible can be.

If this is the case, Foster and Co windows and doors can assist you in upgrading you home. As winter closes in, we are entering what known is commonly as ‘burglar season’. The longer nights provide additional cover and the financial stress of Christmas always seems to heighten desperation amongst the light fingered.

The Foster and Co Team are a local company and care for our community. Many of our work force live in North London and Hertfordshire and we care for their safety as much as yours! If you are concerned with the current protection that your property’s windows and doors provide, then please contact our friendly office for more information about improving the standard of your home.

How Should You Upgrade Your Windows And Doors In Your North London And Hertfordshire Home?

 

Know The Style Of Your Home When Upgrading Your Windows And Doors!

When choosing your Windows and Doors for your North London and Hertfordshire Home you must take in to consideration the style of your existing building. As this modern age in building pitches traditional against contemporary, some beautiful period structures are disregarded in the endless drive for ultra-modern and super sleek.

Foster and Co Windows and Doors prefer to work with existing architecture in order to emphasis and compliment original features whilst sensitively introducing current designs.

An article that was published in Camb Times on 19th September discuss a story which involves a mid-19th century Grade II Listed Building and how the current owning had to apply for planning permission to upgrade his Windows and Doors. The Property itself, was not in fact a Grade Listed Building and was instead build in the 1980’s however, as it was built of the rear of a Grade listed building, planning permission was required. Luckily for this client, all planning was approved as it bared no effect to the integrity of the building behind and the windows chosen were aesthetically stunning and sympathetic to the property surroundings.

At Foster and Co Windows and Doors, we love stories like this! The resulting finish was beautiful and combines key factors such as preservation as well as progress when concerning property development.

Foster and Co Windows and Doors are a specialist company which is dedicated to designing, supplying and installing top quality products. The Foster and Co Group have years in the construction industry and can therefor complete any structural work also. This would include making new openings, readjusting current openings and all the making good after the new products have been fitted.

For more information about the Foster and Co Group and how we can assist you in developing your property, please call 0208 441 3144.
