Thinking of replacing your windows this year? Then read on
From April 2002, all replacement glazing will come within the scope of the Building Regulations. From then on, anyone who installs replacement windows or doors will have to comply with strict thermal performance standards.
One of the main reasons for this change is the need to reduce energy loss. The Building Regulations have controlled glazing in new buildings for many years but this represents only a very small percentage of our total building stock. It is also essential to improve the performance of the much larger number of existing buildings if we are to meet increasingly stringent national and global energy saving targets.
When the time comes to sell your property, your purchaser’s solicitors while undertaking the necessary search, will ask for evidence that any replacement glazing installed after April 2002 complies with the new Building Regulations.
