Updating uPVC Windows for A Customer’s Home in Hornchurch

Mr & Mrs Ashton were looking for new uPVC windows to replace their existing ones. They wanted to enjoy improved performance, a better design. Working with a trustworthy company in the Hornchurch area was also important to them.

When the Ashton’s contacted the Concept Windows team, we were able to run through the options for their uPVC windows and provide them with a quote to consider. They were delighted with our recommendations and prices.

Mr & Mrs Aston had this to say about their experience of working with Concept Windows and the outcome of their uPVC windows project.

 

“We couldn’t be happier with our choice to use Concept Windows. The sales representative, Marilyn, was very patient and knew her stuff.

She gave us time to think about her quote without putting us under any pressure and unlike other companies that had quoted for the work she made us feel that nothing was too much trouble.

The fitters were excellent, very clean and tidy. We would recommend Concept to our friends and family without any doubt.”

Life Hacks – Cleaning Your Windows

Back in 1936, when George Formby released ‘When I’m Cleaning Windows’, did he realise he was opening a debate which would go on to resonate through the streets of Essex for generations?

tilt and turn windows essex

In this day and age, with household heroes like Barry Scott and Cillet Bang, you’d think there would be little room for debating old wives’ tales in relation to cleaning uPVC windows. However, there are still those who believe that newspapers are better for cleaning glass than paper towels, due to the density of the fibres.

This month, we’ll look over the best advice handed down between builders to housewives. To find out the best way to keep your glass glistening, hinges swinging and frames permanently closed!

Top Life Hacks for Cleaning Windows

Keep the Newspaper in the Recycling – It has long been thought that newspaper doubles up as some sort of magical window cleaner. In reality though, it’s best left for starting fires and wrapping Friday’s fish and chip supper. If you use newspaper, you run the risk of inking all over your hands.

Our advice is ditch the newspaper for coffee filters. Coffee filters are tough and durable, helping to prevent streaks appearing on the glass. Just make sure you use new ones, coffee is a persistent stain!

life hacks

Brew Your Own! – Brewing your own window cleaner will save you money. Plus, there’s every chance you’ll come up with a cleaning product so strong, it could beat Mr. Muscle in an arm wrestle. Leave expensive cleaning products in the supermarket and concoct your own from a mix of water, ammonia, vinegar and dish soap. Spray, don’t drench, your windows with your very own George’s Marvellous Medicine and wipe off…with a coffee filter!

Try a Blackboard Eraser – If you’re fairly new to the window cleaning business, you may well create streaks across the glass. Don’t panic! Just head down to your local art and craft shop and purchase a blackboard eraser…do not use it on a chalkboard first. The soft fabric of an unused t-shirt can work just as well.

Be Aware of the Environment – When it comes to maintaining the locks and hinges (working parts of your window) WD40, grease and a splash of oil will go a long way. But also, be aware of your environment! After a heat wave, use an old toothbrush to clean out the dust from the locks and hinges. If it rains, ensure your window is closed. Clean off any water from the hinges with a thick towel as soon as you can, stopping the locks and hinges from rusting.

Wash Your Windows On a Cloudy Day – Washing your windows on a hot day will give you less time to clean, as the windows dry quicker! On cloudy days, you’ll have far more time to clean your windows. Minimising the risk of streaks of appearing.
