If you’re considering replacing the windows in your home, you may be bewildered by the range available. From bay to bow and slider to stationary, the choice can be difficult to make. Let’s take a look at one particular type of window – the tilt and turn – and three of its benefits.
Because these windows can open in a variety of different ways, they’re extremely versatile. This makes them ideal for small spaces or places where you don’t want an open window encroaching into the room. Because they are usually made of single large panels, they still let plenty of light in.
Easy to clean
These various modes of opening make this type of window extremely easy to clean. They can be opened inward, which makes cleaning the outside not only easy but also safe. This means no more hanging out of upstairs windows!
If you’re looking for an installer, it is worth choosing one who is a member of the Double Glazing & Conservatory Ombudsman Scheme, such as firmfix.co.uk/windows/tilt-n-turn-windows. Their accreditation standards ensure that members are credit checked, carry the correct insurances, and comply with the relevant regulations.
You’ll also be able to enjoy uninterrupted views with these windows. You can open the window inward fully so that the view isn’t restricted by the window frame itself.
Frames for this type of window generally come in uPVC or aluminium, but the frame can be slightly larger than a standard window as it needs to house the more complex opening mechanism. Both types, however, are generally available in a range of colours and finishes.
Historically, the main issue with buying these types of windows, particularly for the home, was how to furnish them. Traditional curtains and blinds caused problems and got in the way when trying to fully open the window. These days, that problem no longer exists because of the huge range of blinds now available. Perfect fit blinds, for example, where the blind is attached to the frame itself, are the ideal solution for this type of window and now come in a wide range of styles and materials.
If you’re looking for windows that are easy to clean, afford you great views and are suitable for most spaces, the tilt and turn option might just be the one for you.
