Benefits of Double Glazing for Homes in Devon and Cornwall

Energy Efficiency

Devon and Cornwall properties are either in a type 3 or type 4 severe with category, so it’s fair to say that we experiences some brisk winds and chilly evenings. Double glazing, (especially A+ rated sealed units), acts as an insulation barrier, reducing the amount of heat escaping through your windows. This ensures that your home remains snug during those cooler nights and translates into significant savings on your energy bills.

Increased Property Value

Double glazing is an attractive feature for prospective buyers. A well-insulated home with reduced energy costs is a significant selling point, enhancing your property’s value should you decide to relocate within (or beyond) Cornwall’s borders.

Noise Reduction

Whether you live in bustling areas like Plymouth, ExeterTruro or the more tranquil settings of Sidmouth or Fowey,  double glazing offers an escape  from external noises, ensuring your home remains a peaceful sanctuary.

Absolutely delighted with our orangery style conservatory which, after market research and a quote from a national brand, we found to be very competitively priced. Mr Roberts – Plymouth - Devon

Ryan and Jen at Realistic Home Improvements were really attentive throughout our project and provided clear information, updates and advice throughout. The finished windows and patio doors, all of which are unique with floating mullions and astragal bars, look great and were installed without fuss. We will have more windows and doors to replace in the future and would have no hesitation to repeat our custom with Realistic Home Improvements. Lovely to get a nice review but we wouldn't get them if it wasn't for our installers. Matt Syrett – St Germans – Cornwall

My experience with this company has been very good. Lock down prevented the job from starting in the Spring as planned, but Realistic took pains to keep me up to date with their situation, and once the work got under way, it proceeded apace. Two weeks from start to finish to re-roof a 48 sq m conservatory, as well as replacing two sets of bifold doors! The installers, were helpful, friendly, constantly cheery chappies who undertook a tremendous amount of work on a daily basis, carried out to a high standard. The installation speed was further helped when three plasterers arrived and completed the boarding and skimming of the entire ceiling in a day. The grey tiled roof looks really authentic, down to a slightly ragged edge where it appears the rock has been split. People who see it assume it is traditional slate. Realistic deserve to go from strength to strength, and I unhesitatingly recommend them. Douglas Evans – Truro – Cornwall

Everyone who worked on the project from the ground up were extremely professional and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Realistic Home Improvements to anyone wanting a beautiful addition to their Home. Julie Jones – Crediton - Devon
