Glazing Industries welcomes Government proposals

A Shot in the Arm For All Glazing Industries

Government planning proposals welcomed

Proposals to speed up the planning system and allow householders to extend their homes without the need for planning are a welcome boost to householders, building and the glazing industry, says the Federation of Master Builders (FMB) in response to the announcement.
Brian Berry, Chief Executive of the FMB ::
“Proposals to make it easier for householders to extend their property makes perfect sense at a time when many are finding it difficult to move home in the current market. It's also encouraging that the Government has recognized the need to help potential buyers get on to the housing ladder. The extra £280 million as part of the ‘FirstBuy’ scheme to help would-be home owners with a deposit is a welcome boost.

Benefits of energy-efficient windows

  • Smaller energy bills: replacing all single-glazed windows with C-rated double glazing could save you around £200 per year on your energy bills.
  • A smaller  footprint: by using far less fuel, you will  generate far less of the co2 that ultimately leads to global warming 
  • A more comfortable home: heat and energy-efficient glazing reduces heat loss through your windows and means fewer draughts and cold spots.
  • less noise pollution: energy efficient-windows insulate your home against noise.
  • Reduced condensation: efficient glazing reduces condensation on the inside of the upvc windows.
