When good looks are everythingDon't worry, we're not claiming that our installation teams are particularly handsome - we employ them first and foremost for their skill of course! - but these days, there can be more to windows looking pretty than just style, colour and finish.
In Ipswich and Suffolk slimline aluminium windows are becoming increasingly popular with architects. The innovative aluminium frames offer sleeker and stronger profiles and can also be available in stylish colours and finishes. We've recently had a few of our customers request coloured aluminium windows in Aldeburgh, Suffolk. Even though the aluminium windows come at a premium over PVC equivalents, they are not just aesthetically more pleasing to the eye thanks to their thinner and less bulky frames, but they also let more light into the property and simply allow more of any view to be admired. Warm-core aluminium technologies now mean that aluminium windows or bi-folding doors can be super-insulated and really energy efficient too.
Talk about appearance & style!
Your windows make a real statement about your home. A change of window style and design can really transform the whole appearance and visual impression of a property. All too often though windows just all look the same or unfortunately seem inappropriate for their setting. Take a look at the products on offer from Falcon Windows in Ipswich however and you'll soon notice the differences available in both design and style.
Our window frames look elegant and have a Scotia-moulded, shaped edge which enhances their appearance - they're far from the clinical, hard shapes of the traditional replacement windows. With the wide range of designs available, you can choose a window style that really suits your home, whether that happens to be traditional or contemporary and of course, the long-established Falcon team are on hand to share expert advice too. There's a choice of stunning patterned glass for bathroom windows and front entrance doors which can have either Georgian Bars, traditional-style leaded lights or beautifully designed decorative inserts.
Our window frames can come in many colours too. We install all types of coloured windows in Ipswich Suffolk - simply select your choice from the wide range of RAL colours available. And if you want a different colour inside to out, like a bright green finish outside and white in, that's all possible too. Foiled cream windows and 'country' colours such as Chartwell green are currently popular choices as well as chic anthracite grey and stylish light blue window frames. On the whole however, coloured windows tend to be coloured on the outside and white on the inside.
Whatever you have in mind for your new windows, whatever catches you eye from the extensive range of replacement window products on the market, Falcon Windows of Ipswich can install them for you. We are pleased to offer all styles of windows, with solutions to suit new builds all the way through to traditional houses and more period properties. We provide very high quality window and door systems with a customer service which is simply second to none.
As safe as houses
Good looks might be one priority, but you'll want to be sure that your new windows are robust and reassuringly secure wherever you live.
PVC-u is very reliable and trustworthy when it comes to security due to its resilience and robustness. PVC-u frames are constructed to incredible hardness, making windows and doors very difficult to damage or break through. Their strength is extremely impressive. Aluminium is considered to be even more secure and almost totally burglar-proof due to its strength, but PVC-u is not far behind.
At Falcon Windows, all our windows also feature our Maco shoot-bolt locking system - another reason why you can have peace of mind that you will be safe within your own home.
u-PVC - it's maintenance free
Do you find that there are simply not enough hours in the day? There are so many things to do in life and although you know that your home is a major financial investment, looking after it and keeping it 'up to scratch' can drop down the priority list.
With u-PVC windows from Falcon Windows, you can kiss that guilty conscience good-bye and get on enjoying life and your home as a place of comfort, a haven for the family to relax and enjoy, feeling safe and secure. No more painting or wood-staining required, virtually "maintenance free" PVC-u windows are a popular choice for modern living - no need to worry about your home looking shabby or untidy due to poorly maintained windows, sit back and watch your u-PVC windows and doors retain their good looks over the years without hardly lifting a finger.

Window board colour options
Choosing your window frame material (timber, hardwood, softwood, u-PVC, aluminium ) is one of the most important options that needs to be decided when choosing to install double glazing
The use of un-plasticized Polyvinyl Chloride or PVC-u has grown hugely in popularity and is now one of the most recommended and most widely chosen materials in use by the biggest double glazing companies.
Here, some of the key advantages and disadvantages to using uPVC over its alternatives are briefly outlined and explained.
Cost is always a consideration and influence. PVC-u solutions are usually the cheapest on offer after materials like aluminium and timber. This is far from PVC-u's greatest attraction, but its relative cost- effectiveness is certainly a bonus that makes a difference. When coupled with A & B efficiency rated sealed units, this gives your windows a very impressive insulation value. (Technically speaking, a low U value - the lower the insulation value the lower the better.)
Another hugely appealing feature of PVC-u is that it is remarkably low maintenance. Timber and woods generally require a re-paint every 5 years alongside occasional refilling jobs and patching due to their tendency to rot and flake. Aluminium is resilient, but still needs attention every now and then. PVC-u frames however never rot, flake, rust or fade. Apart from a quick wipe with a cloth to keep them clean, u-PVC frames require virtually no maintenance - what a convenient and time-saving solution!
Un-plasticized Polyvinyl Chloride is also the most durable of the materials available. Woods can rot and start to warp over time and aluminium can pick up rust, whereas uPVC is strong, tough and resilient. It is highly unlikely that PVC-u will need to be changed and some companies even offer up to 10 year guarantees on PVC-u double glazing.
Resilient and robust, PVC-u is very reliable and trustworthy when it comes to security. U-PVC frames are extremely difficult to break through or damage. Aluminium is similarly if not more secure, almost totally burglar-proof, however u-PVC is a close second.
Insulation is another feature of the PVC-u material that surpasses woods and aluminium. It was created to be a very competent insulator and provides the best heat and energy insulation available. It is a very good insulator compared to the alternative of regular aluminium and timber and this ability to keep heat in and sound out is largely responsible for its popularity.
The major shortcoming of pvc is undoubtedly its aesthetic value. In many people's eyes, it's simple, white plastic look is far from attractive and some consider PVC-u frames to look unstylish or plain when compared to timber and aluminium. Different colour products are now however available, but when replacing windows whilst trying to keep the character of the home, it may not be ideal. For listed buildings and those within conservation areas, local planning councils would often be likely to insist on timber or aluminium frames.
