Their ideas are gained from observing other homes in the area and especially in the street where they live. If the home is semi-detached it is always a good idea to consider your neighbours home and design, as the two homes if they have the same type of colour and design it will be compliment both homes.

Toughened Glass in Replacement Windows
Toughened Glass is used in all low level glazing and mandatory in doors and screens. This is a true safety glass BS 6206 and after  toughening
it can gain up to five times its original strength. When it shatters, it breaks into small blunt pieces reducing the risk of harmful injury.For additional security in vulnerable areas, we recommend the use of laminated glass in the external pane of glass in the units.
