New windows North Wales and Cheshire, quality PVCu, hardwood and traditional sash

It’s highly unlikely you’d buy a car without first visiting the dealer’s showroom. The same should be said for your new windows and doors too. They are likely to be one of the largest investments you make, and arguably the most important when it comes to the look and value of your home.

Even if you have a very good idea of what you want, a showroom gives you the opportunity to not only see the products you have in mind, but to explore other options. You don’t know what you don’t know. Visiting a window showroom will either cement your ideas or present new ones for you to consider.

TV shows and home magazines are full of inspiration but you need to be sure that the windows and doors you choose, suit your home, your family and your lifestyle.

Visiting a showroom gives you the opportunity and the environment to really see windows, front doors, sliding doors, bi-fold doors, even window and door furniture, up close. Are you aware of all colour options, grained finishes, handle options, opening configurations, double or triple glazing, alternative glazing options, security features?

You may have ruled out uPVC in favour of timber, but have you seen a timber-alternative window up close? Can you tell the difference? Do you know what a flush casement is? Aluminium windows have some of the narrowest sightlines on the market. Sliding doors or Bi-Folds? How often will they be open? What are your views like? Have you seen the latest in front door technology? Some of the latest contemporary front doors have fingerprint recognition or Bluetooth control! Traditional conservatory, orangery or modern glazed extension?

A good window and door showroom will showcase the latest in design and technology in a plethora of materials, colours and finishes. You’ll also have the opportunity to discuss your ideas with a Designer. We all know the archetypal window salesman is pushy and has a reputation for out staying their welcome. A showroom visit allows you the opportunity to be in control of the length of any meeting. Once you have seen what you need and have the information you want, you can leave of your own accord. However, a good Designer will also know the products and has seen them installed in all styles of properties, in all types of locations and for all kinds of homeowners. A Designer will be able to ask questions that you may not have considered and can help you explore all options available.

Visiting a window showroom will undoubtedly ensure you make an informed decision.

We have already had a number of positive comments regarding the quality and the finishing touches of our conservatory and everybody who has seen it has been pleased with the finished result. I have to say that both teams of fitters - those that did the initial groundwork and those who fitted the conservatory, were all polite, courteous and very helpful. We would therefore have no hesitation in recommending Peninsula. It has been a pleasure doing business with you.
