Frequently exposed to intense sunlight, strong winds, saltwater corrosion, and moisture-laden air, long-lasting replacement windows and doors that can stand up to harsh coastal climates are a must. So, if you live on the Suffolk or Essex coastline and the latest Green Homes Grant announcement has got you thinking about improving your home, there’s no need to worry which windows and doors are the best for your coastal home, as we’ve done the hard work for you!
Scouring the internet for ‘the best windows for homes by the beach’ can be incredibly confusing, especially when the consensus is split between practical uPVC and premium aluminium frames. At the end of the day, both window materials have unique features that are ideal for homes by the beach. In short, like most things in life, it comes down to budget.
Aluminium windows hold an array of benefits for properties situated near the coast, most prominently:
That said, quality uPVC casement windows are also a viable option for coastal homes restricted by budget. Delivering further protection from the wind and rain thanks to their stormproof ‘lipped’ design, additional benefits for coastal properties include:
When it comes to securing homes by the sea, high quality aluminium doors and composite doors are best suited to coastal homes across Essex and Suffolk. Uniting an impact-resistant GRP skin and solid core, we also offer a thicker 70mm rebated composite door that’s ideal for homes more susceptible to severe coastal conditions.
Offering the same benefits as aluminium windows (outlined above), premium aluminium doors suit larger apertures as they can be manufactured 30% larger than composite doors. Refusing to weaken over time, our aluminium doors are also fitted with toughened glass which is 5 times stronger than standard glass – allowing them to withstand the constant battering of windy coastal locations.
Have you considered incorporating contemporary integral blinds into your new windows and doors? Safely enclosed in between double or triple glazed panes of glass, they’re particularly useful in coastal homes as they can be opened and closed with ease, eliminating the worry of strong winds damaging valuable window and door shades.
Whether you live in Clacton-on-Sea, Felixstow, Aldeburgh or Southwold, we’re certain our broad range of coastal-friendly windows, doors and glazed extensions can accommodate your needs.
