FOR award-winning window and door company Shane Howells Ltd winter is one of the busiest times.

For Shane Howells the colder weather means one thing: lots of enquiries from homeowners looking for new windows to help reduce heating bills.

Founder Shane says: “Our PVCu double glazed windows use A-rated Planitherm units as standard, helping you get great savings on your bills.

“We also offer triple glazed windows that have a U-value of just 1.1, compared to our double glazed windows which have a value of 1.4.

“Whichever option you choose, you’ll be making a good investment – we use VEKA PVCu systems and their quality has been proved in literally millions of homes. As proof of their quality, they come with a ten10 year insurance-backed manufacturer’s guarantee.”

New windows will also transform your home’s appearance.

Shane says: “Standard white windows are still the preferred choice. But more and more people choose coloured frames for a distinctive look.

“We’re also excited about adding the PVCu R9 window to our portfolio. It’s a traditional flush casement designed to replicate 19th century flush sash timber windows and is perfect for heritage properties.”
