Energy efficient windows 
which don’t cost the earth

A rated windows, doors, conservatories and roofline products from Ecoseal Home Improvements

Ecoseal installs 'A' Rated, energy saving, double glazed replacement windows, doors, conservatories, orangeries and roofline products in PVCu and hardwood, throughout Staffordshire, Cheshire, Greater Manchester, Shropshire, West Midlands and East Midlands.

ALL WITH INSURANCE BACKED WARRANTIES

Why choose Ecoseal?

 

Ecoseal are one of a limited number of home improvement companies who have funding available to help customers afford new energy efficient windows and doors. 

The company was established by the current Directors several years ago after being disappointed by the quality of product and service on offer generally within the replacement double glazing industry.

They saw a gap in the market for an environmentally friendly company which not only installs the highest quality energy efficient double glazed PVCu windows and doors but which also cares about customers like you – from initial quotation right through to after care service.

With over twenty five years’ experience in the home improvement industry, we believe that we can offer stylish, energy efficient windows, doors and conservatories which are not only affordable to you – but which don’t cost the earth either!

The Ecoseal Promise

We are confident that you will not find a better product or service for the price. If you can find another home improvement company to offer a better combination of product, price and service, one that offers the same high level of workmanship, with the same specification of products, within 7 days of placing your order we will install the windows free of charge. 

A Window and Door Installation – step by step

INITIAL APPOINTMENT
During your initial appointment with one of our qualified advisors we will demonstrate our new ‘A’ rated double glazed windows and our trade windows. We will measure your existing windows and door apertures and provide a quotation for you based on ‘best advice’. This quotation will be valid for twelve months from the date of the appointment.

ORDER
Once you are happy with either our ‘A’ rated windows or our trade windows, we will complete an order form with full details of the proposed window and door installation and leave a copy of it with you.

SURVEY
Within a few days of placing your order a trained surveyor will visit your home to take exact measurements. He will ensure that all FENSA requirements are met and confirm the details of your window and door installation from your order form so that we manufacture exactly what you have ordered.

INSTALLATION
Treating your home with respect, our trained craftsmen will install your new windows and doors, clean them before leaving and take the old ones away, to be recycled where possible. Payment is due on completion unless you have taken advantage of one of our finance packages, in which case we will ask you to sign a satisfaction note.

FENSA REGISTRATION
Your new window installation is registered by us with FENSA to confirm that they meet current regulations, for your peace of mind. A FENSA certificate will be posted to you some time after the installation.

RECOMMENDATION
Once your installation is complete we are confident that you will take advantage of our recommendation scheme for your friends, family and work colleagues.

Finance Packages

Ecoseal offer a range of finance packages so that you can spread the cost of your windows, doors, conservatory or roofline installation over a period of time to suit your budget. 

These finance packages can change from time to time, so please ask our qualified advisor when he or she visits so that you do not miss out. In the past we have had access to low rate finance, ‘Buy Now Pay Later Schemes’ and ‘Interest Free Finance’.

Insurance Backed Warranty

All Ecoseal home improvement installations come with a FREE insurance backed warranty supported by the Glass and Glazing Federation Insurance Backed Warranty Scheme – this includes windows, doors, conservatories, orangeries, porches, roofline products, door canopies and car ports.

A Rated Windows

Window Energy Ratings are based on a scale of A to G in exactly the same way that household appliances are rated – A being the most efficient, G being the least efficient.

Ecoseal’s premier casement window carries an A rating for energy efficiency under the Window Energy Ratings (WER) system. This is the highest rating achievable and illustrates Ecoseal’s determination to help you to reduce your heating bills and do your bit towards reducing global warming.

This is illustrated by these thermal images showing heat loss in red before new windows and doors were installed, compared to the lack of heat loss after installation.

FENSA

 

 

Ecoseal is a registered member of FENSA (the Fenestration Self-Assessment Scheme) and so is entrusted to make sure that your window and door installation satisfies all current Building Regulations in respect of their installation.

History of FENSA
Until 2002 replacement glazing in existing properties was outside the control of building regulations even though glazing in new properties was subject to Building Control requirements. Given that there are approximately two million glazing installations in existing properties every year, local Building Control departments would not have coped with the volume of work involved in ensuring compliance with the regulations.

FENSA was formed therefore, under the auspices of the Glass and Glazing Federation (GGF) to register installers of double glazed windows and doors and to monitor their compliance with building regulations. Although member companies self-assess their own compliance with building regulations, FENSA checks a number of installations to confirm this.

Advantages of FENSA over a Building Regulations Application

  • Customer and trade references, in addition to financial checks are made by FENSA
  • All relevant installations must carry a five to ten year insurance backed guarantee and deposit protection insurance.
  • FENSA registered companies are continually re-assessed by an independent inspection body.
  • Using FENSA is less expensive than using the local Building Control Department.

 

What is checked under FENSA rules?

  • Structure of the windows and doors - especially in relation to bay windows and the installation of supporting lintels.
  • Fire Escapes – with regard to upstairs windows.
  • Ventilation – Habitable rooms should have a total window opening of more than 5% of the room’s floor area together with trickle ventilation where necessary.
  • Access for the disabled – If an existing door permits wheelchair access, the replacement door must also provide such access.
  • Safety – In relation to glazing of windows and doors, safety glass (toughened or laminated) must be installed at low levels (up to 800 mm for windows, 1,500 mm for doors) and over showers or baths.
  • Conservation of fuel and power – Since 1st October 2010, Window Energy Ratings (WER) on a scale of A to G (similar to those applied to household appliances, with A being the most efficient and G the least efficient) apply to replacement windows and doors. All replacement windows and doors must achieve at least the C rating.

Ecoseal’s premier casement window is A rated as standard.

Funding

As part of an industry scheme to stimulate growth in the economy, Ecoseal offer funding to help homeowners afford new energy efficient windows and doors.    Customers can get up to £3,000 towards the cost of a window and door installation and the money is awarded based on how much more energy efficient the new windows are when compared to your existing windows.

 If you order a full house of windows and doors, then the full £3,000 entitlement could be available, or if only some of your windows are replaced then the funding is calculated on a pro-rata basis.  Even for just one new window installed though, there should be at least some funding available.  Contact Ecoseal today to find out how much funding you qualify for.

Customers upgrading from single glazed windows to Ecoseal’s ‘A’ rated energy efficient windows could save up to £8,000 off their heating bills over a ten year period.  Upgrading from first generation PVCu windows to Ecoseal’s ‘A’ rated windows could result in a saving of over £3,000! For those customers considering one of our finance packages aimed at spreading the cost of new windows over a number of years, we can show you how much you would save on your heating bills each month compared with the monthly cost of the installation.

Tilt & Turn

Designed in mainland Europe, tilt and turn windows open into your property by either tilting inwards from the top or hinging inwards from the side, according to the operation of the handle.

Sliding Sash Windows

Sliding sash windows are typically installed in traditional Victorian and Georgian homes to replace existing timber sash windows operated with cords, weights and pulleys. PVCu sliding sash windows have all the style and character of the original designs but with modern day energy efficiency and security built in.

The original box sashes are often removed and the reveals re-lined in plasterboard to create a more modern appearance inside whilst retaining character.

Specification

  • Choice of ‘A’ or ‘C’ Rated energy efficient, double glazed PVCu windows to lower your heating bills and keep your home warm
  • ‘Two systems are available. The authentic weight and pulley system with pre-stretched nylon cords, ball race pulleys and weights or, as a more modern option, pre-tensioned spiral balances with lockable ‘fitch’ fasteners.’ 
  • Gold or chrome fittings, traditional ironmongery and sash horns complete the authentic sash window appearance.
  • Both sashes slide independently, whilst having an optional tilt function to enable cleaning from inside or to provide a fire escape
  • External cills replaced as standard
  • Sliding sash windows are often customised with Georgian fret or Astragal bars. Gold or chrome fittings and sash horns complete the traditional sash window appearance. Night vents and child restrictors are also available.
  • 10 year guarantee covering every part of every window – frames, glass, locks, hinges and installation.
  • Every guarantee is covered by the Glass and Glazing Federation Insurance Scheme for complete peace of mind

Coloured and Composite Windows

Decoroc™ Coloured Windows and Doors

The innovative PVCu profile coating decoroc™, which carries a European patent, is available on all windows, doors and conservatories. With a matt finish it is low maintenance and has high impact and abrasion resistance. 

Decoroc™ coloured windows, doors and conservatory products are becoming more popular on commercial developments due to the performance and appearance of the finish. They are an ideal alternative to the more costly aluminium windows and doors.
The decoroc™ colour coating solution is available in a wide range of colours that can be manufactured to almost any of the official RAL colours. For more information on the full range of RAL colours available, complete your details on our contact page and we would be pleased to assist.

Composite Windows

Ecoseal’s double glazed composite windows achieve the appearance of timber with a product which has the same minimal maintenance as our PVCu range of windows and doors.

Our new composite windows bridge the gap between hardwood windows and woodgrain effect PVCu windows. They provide an ideal alternative to expensive hardwood frames without the maintenance. 

There is no similar product available in the marketplace – it is completely unique.

Frame Colours

Ecoseal composite windows are available in a range of woodgrain effects including white, cream, chartwell green, anthracite grey, black ash, rosewood, golden oak, nut tree and Irish oak.

Ironmongery 

Ironmongery options include contemporary designs in chrome, bronze, copper and bronze effects or traditional monkey-tail handles with casement stays to complete the heritage appeal of Ecoseal’s composite windows.  

Bay & Bow Windows

The terms bay and bow window are often used as interchangeable terms but they have a quite specific meaning in the replacement window industry. A bay window is generally one where the windows follow the shape of the brickwork below so that you can walk into the space created, which becomes part of the internal room. Whereas a bow window (often referred to as a ‘plant-on bow’) projects beyond the external brickwork without being supported by it. A bow window generally provides a deep internal window cill whereas a bay window does not.

Both bay and bow windows, whether in PVCu or hardwood, can include any of the window types available but generally double glazed casement windows are used.

Both bay and bow windows are available as either curved or square installations.

Curved examples are usually in three or more sections (each section being an individually manufactured window) with a round, reinforced bay pole to allow the angle to be created and to support the roof.

Square bays and bows have a square, reinforced bay pole at each corner and though usually in three sections as in the photograph above, can be made up of just a front and one side, sometimes referred to as a ‘dog-leg bay’.

Trade Window Frames

Outward opening casement windows are the window of choice in most British homes, offering both top opening vents for ventilation and side opening vents for use as a fire escape.

Whilst satisfying all current Building Regulations, the trade window frame from Ecoseal will appeal to the more cost conscious customer due to the high volumes of production required to satisfy our trade customers. 

Specification

  • ‘C’ Rated energy efficient, double glazed PVCu window to comply with FENSA requirements and current Building Regulations
  • 70 mm thick fusion welded frame with a choice of chamfered or ovolo beads
  • Mushroom bolt locking system and internal beading for extra security
  • 28 mm glass sealed units with low emissivity glass
  • External cills replaced and night vents fitted as standard
  • 5 year discolouration guarantee covering the frames and glass, 12 months on the locks and hinges
  • Every guarantee is covered by the Glass and Glazing Federation Insurance Scheme for complete peace of mind

Conservatories

Originally conservatories were single glazed glass structures built on country houses for preserving tender plants brought to England by wealthy Victorian travellers. Back in the eighteenth century they often they brought specimen plants such as citrus trees from their overseas visits – hence the term Orangery.

Such facilities were refined throughout the nineteenth century as building techniques improved and glass became less of a luxury. The Orangery became a more practical and functional garden room to enjoy views of the gardens whilst remaining under shelter from the weather. As glass was mass produced and became cheaper still, the conservatory as we now know it began to take shape and was built on a wider cross section of homes.

Nowadays, conservatories and orangeries are becoming increasingly popular additions to all housing styles across the United Kingdom. Discerning customers however, were demanding more comfortable conservatories to use as something more than a glorified greenhouse. The invention of float glass in the 1960’s allowed double glazed sealed units to be manufactured and over time these have been refined to create energy efficient glazing as well as anti-sun and self-cleaning glass.

Now in the twenty-first century, a well-designed conservatory and orangery from Ecoseal not only provides an additional room but also enhances the appearance of your home. Designed to be used all year around, Ecoseal’s conservatories and orangeries have been used as an additional lounge, a dining room, a play room for the children and an office.

 

Finishing Touches

Ecoseal offer a range of finishing touches and additional building works extras for your conservatory or orangery to make it a comfortable ‘all-year-round’ room, which include: -

  • Double electrical sockets so that you can watch TV, listen to music or surf the web, or perhaps an outside socket for your lawn mower
  • Installation of light points, though we generally suggest that you choose your own fittings
  • TV point, telephone point, extension of your broadband or sky™ connection
  • Plastering of the base wall and house wall
  • Floor tiles of your choice installed and finished with a skirting board trim
  • Under-floor heating with programmable thermostat for all year round warmth
  • Paving around the base wall
  • Re-site kitchen waste, cooker hood vent outlet, soil stack, overflows, gullies and manholes

Frame Colours

Other than Brilliant White, frame colour options include Light Oak, Rosewood and Nut Tree woodgrain foils, each with an optional white interior and with an extensive range of door panels to match. In addition Ecoseal offer foiled frames in Anthracite Grey, Black Ash, Cream and White. For something really different, in the Decoroc™ range, Ecoseal also offer any RAL colour on the A rated windows and doors.

Decorative Glass

Many of our customers decide to individualise their property by including decorative glass features in their new windows, doors and conservatories. We have a wide choice of leaded glass, coloured lead, bevelled glass, Georgian Fret and Astragal Bar.

To further enhance your conservatory, Ecoseal also offers electrical sockets and lighting, floor tiling and under floor heating. 

Drainage

All new conservatories and orangeries from Ecoseal have the gutter and downpipes connected to either existing or new drainage, for example when a new gulley is installed along with the building work. As a no cost option, in line with our ecological stance as a company, we offer every customer a FREE WATER BUTT connected to your new conservatory instead of a new gulley. That way you will be able to collect rainwater from the roof of your new conservatory to re-use in your garden – just another way in which we are different from the ordinary conservatory company.

Sun-Lounge Conservatories by Ecoseal

Also referred to as a Garden Room or Lean-To conservatory this most contemporary of designs generally has a single pitched roof and angular shaped frames to the sides. Being square or rectangular in shape the simplicity of the Sun-Lounge design not only maximizes floor area but is also the most economical conservatory within the Ecoseal range.

This extremely versatile design can be built into or around corners, can have hipped or curved ends and a roof pitch as low as 5º or as steep as 30º. And with a slightly different style of roof the Sun-Lounge design can be built on to a bungalow with the wall plate of the roof fixed to the fascia and the side frames fitting underneath the soffit.

All conservatories are available with Ecoseal’s ‘A’ rated energy efficient windows or the more economical Trade Frames. Our conservatory designers will also advise on the use of casement, tilt and turn or sliding sash windows combined with single or double doors, sliding patio or bi-fold doors. For additional ventilation, either manually or electrically operated roof vents are available.

Ecoseal’s conservatory designers also take into account the aspect of the conservatory, as a north facing conservatory may need more insulation and a south facing conservatory more ventilation. Additional protection from the conservatory overheating can be designed in, by recommending heat reflective polycarbonate or glass in the roof. Ecoseal’s conservatories are designed to be usable throughout the whole of the year.

Victorian Conservatories by Ecoseal

You don’t need to live in a Victorian property to enjoy the stylish features of a Victorian conservatory.  Whether the curved front is in 3, 4, 5 or 6 sections it will offer panoramic views of your garden and the more sections the bay has the smoother the curve of the bay.  Although the style of the bay adds character to the conservatory, when considering a Victorian conservatory, account must be taken of the positioning of furniture and the loss of space caused by the bay.

This extremely versatile design can be built with a roof pitch as low as 15º or as steep as 35º and in a three facet Victorian, the front section can be wider that the other two to improve practicality.  And when hipped back to a box gutter or built against a new tiled dormer, a Victorian conservatory can also be built on to a bungalow.  Ecoseal offer a choice of finial and cresting to finish of the ridge of the conservatory – or you can keep it simple, with none at all.

Edwardian Conservatories by Ecoseal

Sometimes referred to as a Georgian design, Edwardian conservatories combine the practicality of a Sun-Lounge with the style of a Victorian conservatory.  The square or rectangular shape of an Edwardian conservatory enables you to maximise internal space for furniture. 

This extremely versatile design can be built with a roof pitch as low as 15º or as steep as 35º and in a three facet Victorian, the front section can be wider that the other two to improve practicality.  And when hipped back to a box gutter or built against a new tiled dormer, a Victorian conservatory can be built on to a bungalow.  Ecoseal offer a choice of finial and cresting to finish of the ridge of the conservatory – or you can keep it simple, with none at all.

Gable Conservatories by Ecoseal

With the same rectangular floor space as an Edwardian but without the hipped front, a gable conservatory has a continuous ridge from the house wall to the front of the conservatory, to form a high glazed front section.  Gable conservatories create a greater feeling of height to the roof and help to keep your internal room brighter by allowing light to stream in from the front windows.

Many of Ecoseal’s conservatory designs can be combined with others within the range to form designs such as the ‘P Shape’ conservatory by incorporating hips and valleys into the roof.  This style is ideal for the larger home where a conservatory could be divided, possibly by furniture, to form two rooms such as a dining area and a lounge.  In situations such as these, often we install a single side access door to a driveway and front double doors or bi-fold doors to provide access to the garden.

The number of combination designs of conservatories is limited only by the imagination Ecoseal’s designers and yourself, together with the technical characteristics of roof manufacture.  Inevitably, when different designs of conservatory are grouped together to form one large conservatory the various shapes of roof include valleys and hips. 

All conservatories are available with Ecoseal’s ‘A’ rated energy efficient windows or the more economical Trade Frames.  Our conservatory designers will also advise on the use of casement, tilt and turn or sliding sash windows combined with single or double doors, sliding patio or bi-fold doors.  For additional ventilation, either manually or electrically operated roof vents are available.

Orangeries by Ecoseal

It is no surprise that advances in the design of the modern conservatory, have ultimately resulted in the resurgence of the Orangery.  In the search for more and more individuality in conservatory design, the industry has returned to its roots and developed the twenty first century version of an Orangery.  Period features such as deep, ornate fascias and elegant pilasters combine with modern, watertight flat roofing materials and the latest in glass technology to create a warm and comfortable, all year round room resembling the orangeries of a bygone age.

With brick or stone pillars to match your home and large picture windows set between them, an elegant Orangery from Ecoseal is the ultimate in luxury home extensions.  The deep external fascia hides an internal plaster boarded roof section which is ideal for installing chrome or brass down lights to illuminate your Orangery at night.   

All Orangeries are available with Ecoseal’s ‘A’ rated energy efficient windows or the more economical Trade Frames.  Our Orangery designers will also advise on the use of casement, tilt and turn or sliding sash windows combined with single or double doors, sliding patio or bi-fold doors.  For additional ventilation, either manually or electrically operated roof vents are available.

Conservatory Glazing

Part of Ecoseal’s survey of your property to assist in the design of your new conservatory or orangery, is not only to determine the proposed usage but also to check which way it faces.  A north facing conservatory will generally need more insulation to reduce heat loss and a south facing conservatory will need more ventilation and protection from solar heat gain.

Ecoseal’s ‘A’ rated casement windows are at the forefront of energy efficient technology to reduce heat loss in household glazing.  Roof glazing needs to prevent rising heat from escaping during cold periods, whilst reducing solar heat gain on hot days.  Only by achieving this, can your new conservatory or orangery be truly usable throughout the year.

Roof Glazing 
The two main choices of roof glazing for conservatories and orangeries are glass and polycarbonate, and both have advantages and disadvantages to consider before finalising your complete specification.  Whilst polycarbonate sheets are lighter, less expensive but noisier when it rains – glass requires stronger roof spars due the extra weight but can offer reduced solar heat gain and an external self-cleaning surface.

Polycarbonate
Ecoseal polycarbonate options include clear, bronze, opal, bronze/opal and solar control in both 25 mm and 35 mm thicknesses.

Glass
Ecoseal offer three types of toughened glass for conservatory roofs, Eco-One and Eco-Elite have a subtle blue tint, and each has the following relative performance values: -

Conservatory Building Work

Ecoseal offer a full building service with all conservatories, orangeries and porches which include the following stages: -

Stages of a standard conservatory base

  • Firstly we ensure that you have removed any prized shrubs or plants from the site of your new conservatory for safe keeping
  • Set out the base with string lines from a CAD drawing
  • Ground excavation and removal of spoil for a trench foundation at least 450 mm deep
  • Steel mesh or lintels installed to protect any underground pipework
  • Concrete footings, floated to form a level surface, minimum 450 mm wide and 200 mm thick
  • The inner leaf of the cavity wall is then built up to conservatory floor level, which is usually the same as the house floor level
  • A minimum of 100 mm deep compacted and consolidated hardcore is laid to form the base of the floor, which may need a self-levelling screed finish later if it is to be tiled
  • A sand blinding, 50 mm deep, is laid over the hardcore to stop any sharp stones from puncturing the damp proof membrane
  • Visqueen damp proof membrane installed on top of the sand and lipping over the brickwork
  • Where required, 50 mm thick insulation over the damp proof membrane is installed
  • Minimum 100 mm thick fibrous concrete to bring the slab up to finished floor level, floated to take tiles or another suitable finished surface
  • A vertical damp proof  and wall tie starter kit is installed against the house wall, ready for the inner leaf
  • The inner leaf of the base wall is completed to the desired height, with a minimum of five wall ties per square metre installed ready for the external skin.  
  • The external brickwork is constructed, tied to the inner skin to form a 50 mm insulated cavity

Planning Permission and Building Regulations

Planning Permission

Adding a conservatory or orangery to your home is considered to be ‘permitted development’, that is, not needing an application for planning permission, subject to the conditions and limits summarised below: -

  • No more than 50% of the land around the ‘original house’* would be covered by new extensions.
  • No extension fronting a public highway.
  • No extension to be higher than the highest part of the roof of the house.
  • Single-storey rear conservatory must not extend beyond the rear wall of the ‘original house’* by more than three metres for a house attached to another, or by four metres for a detached house.
  • Maximum height of the single storey rear extension of four metres.
  • Maximum eaves height of an extension within two metres of a boundary, to be three metres.
  • Maximum eaves and ridge height of an extension to be no higher than the existing house.
  • Side extensions, not fronting a highway, to be single storey with maximum height of four metres and width no more than half that of the ‘original house’*.
  • Roof pitch of extensions higher than one storey to match existing house.
  • No verandahs, balconies or raised platforms.
  • On ‘designated land’, no permitted development for rear extensions of more than one storey, no cladding of the exterior and no side extensions.


*The term ‘original house’ means the house as it was first built or as it stood on 1st July 1948, if it was built prior to that date.  Extensions built by a previous owner are to be taken into account.

# ’Designated land’ includes national parks, the Norfolk Broads, Areas of Outstanding National Beauty, conservation areas and World Heritage Sites.

Additionally, where work is proposed on a listed building, listed building consent may be required.

Building Regulations

Building Regulations will normally apply if you want to build an extension to your home, though conservatories are normally exempt when: -

  • They are built at ground level and are less than 30 square metres of internal floor area.
  • The conservatory is partitioned from the rest of the house by external quality walls, doors or windows.
  • There should be an independent heating system with separate temperature and on / off controls
  • Glazing and any fixed electrical installations must comply with the applicable building regulations requirements.
  • Any new structural opening between the house and the proposed conservatory will require building regulations approval, even if the conservatory itself is exempt.

This information is for guidance only and you should check with your local planning authority or building control department for clarification regarding your particular situation and for any recent changes in regulations.

Roofline and Cladding by Ecoseal

You may have replaced the windows and doors in your home but it’s surprising how much more exposed timber the average property has – just waiting for you to paint it or worse still, for it to rot. 
 
Fascias, soffits and associated roofline products are an essential part of any property and whilst exposed to the elements, they play a vital role in protecting roof rafters and the roof space of your home.  You may not notice them most of the time but old and rotten fascias, soffits and barge boards can result in expensive damage to your roof.

New PVCu roofline products from Ecoseal not only improve the appearance of your home but they will also protect your roof from the elements for years to come.  PVCu roofline products from Ecoseal are durable, weather-resistant and attractive and, a major benefit due to their difficult-to-access location, maintenance free.

Ecoseal offers the complete solution to roofline problems with a high performance roofline system, manufactured to the highest standards, comprising of: -
 

  • Soffits – Eurosoffit board with built-in ventilation, 9 mm utility board with optional ventilation or hollow soffit board.
  • Fascias or Barge board – At 18 mm thick, Ecoseal fascia boards are sturdy enough to fit directly onto roof rafters and are available in flat board or decorative ‘Ogee’ style.
  • Gutters – Including Classic half-round, Square-line, Universal Plus Ogee style or Universal XL heavy duty and high capacity gutters.
  • Down pipes – Available in round or square in white, brown or black.
  • A unique 3-in-1 eaves protection system – Comprising over fascia ventilation, an eaves comb filter to prevent birds and rodents accessing the roof space and in-built tray to prevent the roof felt sagging thus allowing water pooling – all three designed to protect the roof rafters and roof space.  
  • Dry verge clips – Maintenance-free dry verge clips from Ecoseal are designed to tidy up and protect the edges of tiled roofs and are available in white, brown, black, slate grey and terracotta.
  • Cladding – Available in ship-lap or Open-V styles, PVCu external cladding can not only enhance the appearance of your home, it provides an attractive, low maintenance and weather resistant solution for replacing rotten timber cladding which could be concealing problem areas of brickwork.

A Roofline Installation
- step by step


INITIAL APPOINTMENT
During your initial appointment one of our qualified advisors will demonstrate our roofline products, measure your fascias, soffits, downpipes and any cladding and provide a quotation for you based on ‘best advice’.

ORDER
Once you are happy with what we have to offer, we will complete an order form with full details of the proposed roofline installation and leave a copy of it with you.

SURVEY
Within a few days or placing your order a trained surveyor will visit your home, take exact measurements and confirm your product requirements.  We take photographs of your property’s elevations and assess requirements for specialised access equipment.

INSTALLATION
Treating your home with respect, our trained craftsmen will install your new roofline products, paying particular attention to weather proofing and take the old soffits and fascias away, to be recycled where possible.  New guttering and downpipes are checked to ensure that water flows away in the correct manner.

RECOMMENDATION
Once your installation is complete we are confident that you will take advantage of our recommendation scheme for your friends, family and work colleagues.

Decorative Glass by Ecoseal

Many of our customers decide to individualise their home by including decorative glass features in their new double glazed windows, doors and conservatories. We have a wide choice of leaded glass, coloured lead, bevelled glass, Georgian Fret and Astragal Bar.

Leaded Windows

Whether you live in a modern or traditional home there is a leaded window design to suit your home and style of windows. Our leaded window patterns include standard, square and diamond designs, combinations of the two such as the elegant Queen Anne pattern, and the tasteful border designs.

Coloured Lead

Combining a wide choice of coloured glass effect films and lead profiles, we can create an infinite number of patterns to introduce colour and style to your new windows. From the traditional rose patterns to modern geometric designs, there is something to suit everyone.

Bevelled Glass

Our elegant range of bevelled glass incorporates multi-faceted glass clusters which reflect and refract light to create a constantly changing appearance of light and colour. Choose from clear or coloured bevelled designs to create distinctive windows and doors.

Bespoke Designs

Whether you are trying to match an existing design in your home or you have created your own, our specialised software means we can create bespoke leaded or bevelled glass patterns to suit your own individual design. Alternatively, if you have existing ‘true’ leaded windows we can often encapsulate your own glass within our energy efficient sealed units and re-install them into your home.

Georgian Fret

In a choice of colours to match our frames – plus gold or chrome - we can recreate the Georgian effect by placing a grid of Georgian fret inside the sealed units of your new double glazed windows, doors or conservatory. Equally, often just a single vertical bar of Georgian fret can create the period effect you are looking for.

Astragal Bar

Whilst Georgian Fret sits inside your new sealed units, Astragal Bar designs create the effect of individual sealed units within a single pane of glass. This replicates the appearance of traditional timber windows within a modern, energy efficient PVCu frame.

Timber Products

A timber species for every installation

As you would expect with Ecoseal, the timber species used in our window, door and conservatory installations are, wherever possible sourced through PEFC (the world’s largest forest certification organisation), FSC (the Forest Stewardship Council) or Verified Progress certified sustainability schemes.

European Redwood
Sourced as an engineered laminate stock to improve durability and stability, European Redwood provides a cost effective solution for wooden windows, doors and conservatories.

Sapele Hardwood
Sapele is a class three moderately durable hardwood from West Africa featuring an attractive reddish brown grain which is enhanced by a stained finish.

Accoya
Available as FSC certified, accoya is a pine species which is modified throughout by the acetylation process to provide a class one durable timber.

European Oak
FSC certified European Oak is a durable class two timber with an attractive grain.  It is not to be confused with American White Oak which is suitable only for internal joinery products.

Energy Efficiency

Over 25% of the heat in your home escapes through windows and doors, so energy efficient windows not only keep your home warm, they are also good for the environment.  The Government’s commitment to reducing energy emissions and the potentially harmful effects of global warming are central to new legislation requiring that replacement windows and doors meet minimum standards of energy efficiency.

Window Energy Ratings (WER) were initially introduced in 2004 by the British Fenestration Rating Council (BFRG) which is operated by the Glass and Glazing Federation (GGF).  
Window Energy Ratings are based on a scale of A to G in exactly the same way that household appliances such as refrigerators are rated – A being the most efficient, G being the least efficient.

In so far as they affect windows and doors, Window Energy Ratings take into account the following factors: -

  • The effectiveness of a window preventing heat loss from your home.
  • The amount of light and heat a window allows in from the sun, known as solar heat transmission or solar heat gain.
  • Air leakage through the seals of a window.
  • The proportion of the total window taken up by the frame.

Ecoseal’s casement windows are ‘A’ Rated as standard.  This is illustrated by these thermal images showing heat loss in red before new windows and doors were installed, compared to the lack of heat loss after installation.

 

 

 

 

GGF Energy Saving Calculator

According to the Glass and Glazing Federation energy saving calculator, a detached property having Ecoseal ‘A’ Rated casement windows installed, will over a ten year period, save the following: -

Saving on heating bills    £5,185.37
CO² Saving                     21.95 tonnes
Carbon Saving                5.99 tonnes

These figures are based on a detached property with typically sized single glazed timber windows and electric heating, having Ecoseal ‘A’ Rated PVCu windows installed.  Assumed inflation rate for the heating bills is 10% per annum.
