A Great British holiday provides the opportunity to enjoy some of the nations most beautiful scenery, from the outstanding natural beauty of the Scottish Highlands and northern uplands to the glorious sunshine and sandy beaches of the south coast! It’s not hard to see why we Brits love a staycation or weekend break and with ownership of a chalet or holiday home, getting away has never been easier.
Challenges that can come with owning a new holiday property
If you have purchased a classic chalet or holiday cottage you may find it is in need of renovation to deliver the comfort you will need to holiday in it all year round. Holiday homes in remote or coastal locations are idyllic but often come with a number of challenges that will need to be remedied including:
- Poor insulation
- Damaged, ageing single pane glazing
- Old heating systems
In addition, a chalet or cottage by the sea or in an exposed open landscape will have to contend with harsh weather and salt air which can accelerate its deterioration. Because of these issues, property renovation is one of the first things you may find yourself having to do to and double glazing should be one of your first projects.
The benefits of double glazing for your holiday home
Installation of double glazed windows and doors on your cottage or chalet is a great investment and should over time add to the value of your holiday home. Old single-pane glazing seriously erodes the energy efficiency of any property and if you want to enjoy your second home all year round, draughty windows are no fun!
The thermal efficiency of good glazing means that not only are you and your guests warm and toasty in the winter, but also double glazing helps your property remain cool in the summer.
If you insulate the property or upgrade its heating, quality double glazing will help the building retain those benefits. For properties used for holiday lettings, double glazing keeps problems like condensation at bay meaning a more comfortable experience for everyone.
Superb strengthened and treated glass can withstand the rigours of coastal weather or bleak winter gales. UV tinting can also minimize glare and excessive exposure to ultraviolet rays.
A lock-and-leave property also needs to be secure. With durable and resilient double glazed windows and doors, you will also benefit from robust locking mechanisms that provide confidence that the contents of your home are secure while you are away.
