All Change at Colourchange
Colourchange UPVC, a home improvement business at Bentwaters near Woodbridge has a new exciting future ahead. Local entrepreneur and joint founder of the “Paddy and Scotts” coffee business, Paddy Bishopp has become a majority shareholder and will work alongside Daryl Collins who launched the business over ten years ago. When first established Colourchange was one of the first companies to provide colouring services for windows and doors. They expanded, selling and installing windows, doors and conservatories and in 2018 was shortlisted in the East Anglian Business Awards as “One to Watch”. Colourchange launched a division called Suffolk Conservatory in recognition of the growing demand for insulated, tiled conservatory roofs. A year later Colourchange was recognised by New Anglia Local Enterprise Partnership as one of the fastest growing companies in Norfolk and Suffolk. In 2020, responding to customer demand, the business launched Office Garden Rooms. With the skills, products, supply chains and experience from 40 years in the building trade they added bespoke garden offices to the range of products offered. Founder of Colourchange, Daryl Collins, explained that the business had grown substantially and that he had approached Headwater, specialists in selling and valuing businesses. “I recognised that I had built the business as far as I could, I needed to find a new owner that could take the business to the next level” Paddy Bishopp, joint owner of Headwater was so impressed with the business that he decided to buy it himself. “Daryl has created a fabulous business, incredible products, a fantastic team and the timing was perfect for us all. Daryl remains a shareholder and continues to work in the business sharing his 40 years of building experience”. Julian Evans, who has been working with Daryl in an advisory role for the past six years will be leading the team forward in his new role as Managing Director. Julian said “This is an exciting change, an amazing opportunity for the business. Over the past five years customer feedback consistently scores over 95/100. We have a choice of products to suit all customers, our skilled installers and paint team are exceptional. A fabulous base to start on a new era.” When asked about future plans Julian said: “We will be growing and we will be recruiting more local people. Paddy and I want the business to be known as the best place to work for in the industry. We know that having the best people on our team means we will excel. A huge proportion of our business comes from recommendations, having the right people doing the right job delivers customer satisfaction.”

Tiled, insulated conservatory roof.
Customers often ask us whether adding an insulated roof to their conservatory will really make a difference. It can be difficult to describe the change without sounding like we are exaggerating. When changing a polycarbonate conservatory roof or a glass roof to a fully insulated conservatory roof you're replacing a sheet of plastic or a plane of glass with a complex roofing structure that contains 150mm of the best insulation on the market. An insulated, tiled conservatory roof offers many benefits. In addition to making your room warmer, homeowners will find that they really can use the room all year round. Meeting all the building regulation requirements the new roof transforms your conservatory into a room. The extra living space will be cheaper to heat and, when it comes to selling your home, having an additional room will increase the value. Call today to get a quote for your new conservatory roof.

How long will it take to get new double glazing?
Over the past three years the home improvement industry has struggled with the supply chain of materials. In the height of the Covid pandemic we were waiting as long as six months for windows or glass. It was frustrating to get a delivery of products only to find they were missing handles, hinges or some other small component that was not available because of a factory lock down somewhere in the world. Prior to this if we needed a standard white window we would have got it within two weeks. Now we are working to around 10 working days. How long will it take to get new double glazing? From the point that you pay your deposit and your survey is completed we will order your products. We would expect to receive them in the second or third week after the order is placed. Once they arrive and are booked in here and have been checked we will schedule your work to be installed. Currently this would be around four weeks after we receive them. Realistically you should have your new windows installed within eight weeks of ordering them.

Insulated conservatory roofs
We have started 2023 at a pace installing a number of insulated conservatory roofs to upgrade the original poly carbonate roofs. If you have a conservatory with an old poly carbonate roof or a glass roof you will be familiar with the heat loss in winter and the heat gain in summer. Whilst glass may have better insulating properties than the poly roofs, the difference with a solid insulated roof is simply stunning. Most conservatories can be fitted with these lightweight roofs. The process is simple involving the removal of your existing roof, fitting a aluminium ring beam and building the new roof on your old frames. A plastered interior ceiling with down lighters then gives your conservatory a new lease of life and you gain a room you can use all year too.

Repairing a faded door
These photos show the transformation of a door. One of our trade customers brought this door in to us. They had fitted it some time ago for one of their own customers but it had faded badly in the sunlight. Kev our head painter stripped it back to find that the door had only the very thinnest layer of paint from the manufacturer. The team stripped the door back and applied a fresh colour using our latest colour bonding system. The door was returned, probably looking better than when first installed!

UPVC Sliding Sash Double Glazing
Our team recently installed a number of sliding sash windows to this property. The most popular style of double glazed windows are known as casement windows. These are the standard style of window that has a hinged sash that opens outwards. (A sash is the part of a window that is separate to the frame, the sash is normally the bit that moves to open). Sliding sash windows are less common and tend to be limited to certain properties, normally the whole street will have sliding sashes. These windows normally arrive glazed from the manufacturer and are greeted with apprehension by our fitters because they are a great deal heavier and more tricky to install. The difference that a double glazed, UPVC sliding sash makes, if it replaces older wooden ones is so very significant. Older sashes tend to be draughty and with large areas of single pane glass – draught free and double glazed changes a room completely.

Home improvement with new conservatories
I hope you are looking forward to another bright and sunny weekend. Several of our customers will be leaving the windows and doors to their conservatories open to allow the air to breeze through to help the plaster dry. Soon they will be able to sit back, relax and enjoy their new space without it feeling like a green house. Plus, in the winter they will be able to enjoy their conservatories like it's an additional room - perfect additional space for Christmas! This past week we have a replacement conservatory roof that is nearly completed, we have finished a second roof. We have fitted a front door and 14 windows. Tony, our carpenter, has been busy in the workshop cutting the timber for a new Garden Office and the brickwork has started on a new build conservatory. Plus, final snagging work has been carried out on three projects.

Do you need trickle vents?
The pictures here show trickle vents that have been deconstructed for painting to match the colour of a clients windows. Have you heard about the new regulation referred to as F1? As detailed on the government’s website: “The aim of requirement F1(1) is to protect the health of occupants of the building by providing adequate ventilation. Without adequate ventilation, mould and internal air pollution might become hazardous to health.” Part F is a new regulation that has just come into force, it relates to any new build property and home improvements like replacement windows and doors. You may remember the old Everest Double Glazing ads with Ted Moult dropping a feather and how wonderfully draft free they were. Turns out that draft free, sealed homes is a bad thing, a recent survey by “My Health, My Home” showed that 58% of homes experienced condensation. Condensation leads to damp spots and damp spots lead to mould which release spores which are trapped in the house. Preventing condensation stops this problem and the best way to do this is to ensure that your home is properly ventilated. This is where requirement F comes into play. All new properties must have a clearly defined level of air flow through the property, this has meant architects and developers have had to revise all their plans. The ventilation allows fresh air into the property the air flow carries out stale air, meaning that spores and air borne viruses are removed in the air exchange. The air coming in provides fresh air for breathing and helps reduce odours – so there are many benefits. What does this mean for homeowners that are looking to replace windows and doors? Not a lot changes, except for the “trickle vent”. Trickle vents are not new, they look like little bars across the top of windows that can open and close – they are designed to allow a steady stream of air through the vent. For many years, when we replaced windows that have vents, we ensured the new double glazing windows had vents. Now, every window that we sell will have trickle vents. What are the negatives? Noise and drafts – to work, the trickle vents are fitted either side of a cavity in the window frame. This means that what once was a perfect seal against noise pollution and drafts is no longer the solid barrier. The benefits however are far greater – so much so that I fitted trickle vents to windows that didn’t originally have them. Not a job for the feint hearted or keen DIYer – without knowing the internal structure and strengthening design you may damage the integrity of the frame – and of course drilling close to glass has its risks!.

Changes to the way houses are to be built
Have you heard about the changes to the rules coming into force on 15th June? All new dwellings will have to undertake significant new changes to mitigate against soaring summer temperatures. The main emphasis is on ventilation, windows, doors, trickle vents and for some properties extractors and specialist air flow equipment. With summers predicted to reach 40C the fear is that “solar gain” means our homes will become too hot. Does this stop you changing your windows and doors? No. The legislation has been put in place for new dwellings not ones that have already been built – with one exception, the ventilation. It seems a little odd that the ventilation of a window or door is an issue, both could open and let air flow! It is not always sensible to leave the windows and doors open, the alternative is the trickle vent. From June trickle vents are fitted to all new windows. A trickle vent is situated in the top of the window frame and allows air flow to pass through a gap in the window frame. Trickle vents aid ventilation and help to reduce condensation. All window frames supplied by us are manufactured to meet the latest U values, this is a measure used for heat gain/heat loss. Windows frames are sourced by Colourchange UPVC and are available in any colour. We supply a range of windows from Veka, Roseview windows and Residence R7 and R9 windows. The majority of the windows tend to be the excellent Veka System 10 windows in the normal profile or flush fit. The System 10 windows are excellent value, combining excellent construction, performance and appearance. Glazing is normally double glazing, sealed units with top energy rating. Occasionally we would recommend triple glazing but the majority of installation really don’t need, or would benefit sufficiently from this option. We are home improvement specialists, based near Woodbridge in Suffolk. If you are looking for double glazing, doors or a conservatory please give us a call. One of our team will come and discuss what you are looking for and prepare a quote for you. We seek prices from all the manufacturers in order to provide a realistic, competitive price for you. The quote takes about two weeks to put together.

New Composite Front Doors
A new front door offers you many benefits including security, draft proofing, improved insulation and of course it looks great too. Whether you are looking for a traditional style to suit a town house, a cottage style door for country house or a contemporary design for a modern home there is a huge selection of styles. With Colourchange UPVC you also have an incredible colour choice - over 30,000 colours!! Covering the Suffolk Coast area from Southwold to Felixstowe and inland to Ipswich, Colourchange UPVC has fitted over 1,000 doors since opening ten years ago. With a showroom in Rendlesham, near Woodbridge customers can see a variety of doors and pick up brochures. What is a composite door made of? The materials in a composite door vary with the manufacturer. Often there is a solid wooden frame, some have a wooden core and others have solid insulating foam inside. The shell is either Glass Reinforced Plastic (GRP) or UPVC this provides a strong and durable exterior surface. Composite doors are usually made in a mould, the materials are layered together and glued using a lots of pressure and heat. The process enables the wood effect grain to be added giving a door the appearance of a traditional wooden door. The materials and manufacturing process means that a composite door has great strength, durability and look fabulous - plus you don't have the maintenance that is necessary on a natural wooden door. At Colourchange UPVC we mainly install mid range composite doors which offer the best value. The budget ranges have cheaper locking mechanisms, locks, handles and hinges, these are the components that are frequently used and we advise customers to spend a little more and have a product which will last longer. Standard colours or a designer door? What colour do you want for your new door? Choosing the style of door that you know will suit your home and the perfect colour sounds like it should be easy. Sadly, we frequently find customers that find the style but struggle with the limited choice of standard colours. That’s where Colourchange UPVC can help you. Colourchange UPVC started their business as a specialist colouring company having developed a colour bonding system that enabled them to colour UPVC windows and doors (we also colour aluminium doors and windows). Using this colour bonding system, you can choose a colour for your door from a range of over 30,000 shades – you are sure to find exactly what you require from that range!

Double Glazed Windows
If you are looking for cheap double glazed windows you may notice that few independent business are selling them. There is a lot of difference between quality double glazing at competitive prices and cheap double glazing. Cheap double glazing is lower in price because the manufacturers have kept their costs down, normally this is by making the UPVC lighter, not as strong, or reducing the reinforced internal structures. The glass is pretty uniform so all the savings have to be in the frame. Good local, independent, double glazing companies normally steer clear of these frames because all windows and doors are guaranteed for 10 years and they don't want to have to return for repairs and adjustments! We offer a range of UPVC and aluminium windows in a variety of styles. Around 80% sold here are the renowned Veka Halo, System 10 frames. Proven over time to be good, strong, solid windows that can be offered at a sensible price. Pop along to our showrooms near Woodbridge to see the range of double or triple glazed windows on offer.

Turn your conservatory into a room
If you have a dated conservatory with a poly-carbonate roof you can transform it with a lightweight, insulated roof. The process is relatively simple with your old roof coming off and a new one built onto your existing frames. The difference is incredible. With a poly-carbonate roof any heating is immediately lost through the thin plastic layer and in the full sunlight the opposite happens and the conservatory can turn into a greenhouse and be too hot to use. We install mainly the "SupaLite" roofing system which has a huge amount of insulation. This insulation allows to use your conservatory like a normal room in the winter, any heating is not immediately lost through the roof. In the Summer it protects the room from over heating allowing year round use. These roofs are not just practical, they look good too. On the outside it looks like a single storey extension and with the plastered ceiling inside it looks just like another room in the home. How much does a new conservatory roof cost? That question is not easy to answer - it depends if you have a lean to, edwardian, victorian, gable end, double hipped roof etc and the size has a big impact too. Access, roofline, drainage and overflow pipes all impact on the price, along with the construction material of your house. Starting prices are £4,500 - realistically not many are that price! If you would like to replace your conservatory roof please give us a call and we would be happy to provide a free quotation for you having made a site visit.

This transformation not only adds practical space to your home but also enhances the appearance and value too. The photographs show a selection of recent installations - with before and after images.

Save on your energy bills
The surging cost of gas bills, increases in electricity prices and the rise in oil prices are hitting us all hard. Plus with Putin’s war we are set to suffer further increases. With new windows and doors you can make your home more energy efficient and reduce your energy bills and save money year after year. Adding an insulated roof to your conservatory will also dramatically change the way you heat and use this part of your home allowing you to use it all year round. Not only will you save money on your heating but you will have a more comfortable home. New double glazed windows and new doors reduce the heat loss which means you will have less droughts and cold spots. New windows and doors will also insulate your home against external noise and help reduce the condensation build up on the inside of windows. If you have older double glazing is your gap between the panes the right size. Modern double glazed units are 28mm wide, filled with an insert gas like argon, xenon or krypton which provide better insulation than air. Earlier windows were just 14mm, changing these will give dramatic improvements. You don’t have to replace everything at once, customers often do windows in phases as their budget permits.

We have recently completed an installation of coloured windows in this house. Normally when people imagine coloured windows they think of the exterior surface.

Double Glazed windows and doors
Our store areas and workshops are filling up with part orders! The industry is really struggling to resolve issues in the supply chains which is extremely frustrating for our customers and us. Before the Coronavirus disruption we would get complete deliveries of double glazed UPVC windows and doors within two weeks of ordering them. Aluminium window frames and bi-folds would take around four weeks and glass could take a number of days. Composite doors had a two week turnaround - which normally slipped to five weeks. Things have certainly changed! We are working to a 8 - 10 week turnaround on UPVC windows and doors. But.... when the order is delivered to us it is rarely complete. We may order ten windows for a house and get nine, with a window held back because the manufacturers can't get hold of a specific hinge. Aluminium deliveries tend to be better but getting toughened glass is very delayed. We can order 20 double glazed units and have 16 standard units turn up with four toughened DGU's to follow. Ordering composite doors is also problematic with a 10 week wait. At Colourchange UPVC we supply to the trade and retail markets so we know that everyone is in the same situation, plenty of orders but frustrating delays and complicated work schedules. Things are slowly improving but we are told that the construction industry could be facing a further year of disruption.

Insulated conservatory roofs - how long dos it take?
Another conservatory roof coming to completion,. We are finding that our customers are starting to look ahead towards Christmas in the hope that their conservatory project will be finished on time. Taking off the existing roof and replacing it with a tiled and insulated roof normally takes around 5 days. In this 5 day period all the main construction work is completed along with the first fix of electrical wiring (installing all the wires and equipment before it is linked into the circuit). Once this stage has been completed we then arrange for the plasterer to come and plaster the ceiling. That is normally during the second week. Once the plaster is dried our electrician can complete the installation (second fix) and from there issue a certificate. Then the room is yours to use all year round. Whilst we do all the build work, electrical work and plastering we don't do the decorating – you may do this yourself or find a decorator. If I ordered a replacement roof when can I get mine installed? As you may be aware there are a number of problems facing the construction industry at the moment, a shortage of materials, rising costs and a shortage of labour. Our order books are full until March 2022, this is a mixture of the lockdown home improvement boom and the number of recommendations that we receive. We are training teams up at the moment to try and help speed up the installations. If we can recruit the right people we will be able to pull the work forward and installations may be possible in January.

When your poly carbonate roof is looking tired and has discoloured you don't have to replace the entire conservatory. Replacing your conservatory roof with a fully insulated and tiled roof is a relatively simple job. We strip off the original roof leaving the frames and glass in place. A new lightweight insulated roof is then installed on the frames. The interior is finished with lighting and plaster and the conservatory is transformed into a room. The insulated conservatory roofs really change the way that you use a conservatory. Gone are the days of the conservatory being too hot in the summer, in the winter you will be amazed at how you can use the room without getting cold.

Why have prices increased so much in the construction industry?
Are you are looking to build a conservatory or undertake some home improvements? Through your research you have probably heard that prices have increased. Here are some of the reasons why we have seen material price increases: The Timber Market Due to the coronavirus outbreak the timber mills closed across the world as the various countries introduced lockdowns. Sweden is the UK’s largest timber supplying partner, with over 40% of UK timber imports, when they went in to lockdown, along with Lithuania and Latvia the UK had a massive gap in the supply chain. Gradually the various countries are returning to limited production with shift working and social distancing rules decreasing their efficiency. The cutting, milling and treating processes have all slowed down which means that stocks have run down. At the same time the stock was depleted there was an increase in demand as homeowners in “Lockdown” spurred a strong demand with home remodelling and construction. The situation was made worse with America increasing its homebuilding programme, they pushed prices higher and key suppliers in Europe diverted stocks to the USA. In an effort to prevent having empty shelves the timber merchants in the UK have been paying whatever it takes to keep stock on their shelves – this means that the timber prices are at least 112% higher than a year ago – and there is still a very strong belief that these prices will continue to rise, and an expectation that prices in the market will be realigned and they won’t drop! Plastics Across the plastics industry there is a shortage of the polymers required for making UPVC, Resins, Pipes and other materials used in construction. The manufacturers had reduced production because of the Coronavirus and then encountered a series of problems that, combined, have created a global shortage of products. One manufacturing plant had a fire in their reactor which has temporarily taken it out of production, another closed due to an earthquake, storms closed a further plant in the US and lower raw material stock supplies have created even more problems. The material shortage has been exasperated by shipping containers being held up offshore because of restrictions in movement. This means that stock expected in the UK have not arrived. With a classic supply and demand market we have seen the cost of all plastics increase dramatically. Insulation Materials PIR insulation, the insulated foam boards, are made of polyisocyanurate. As with the supply of plastics some of the core materials used for construction have increased in price by a considerable amount. PIR can be double the price compared to a year ago. Roof Tiles The demand for clay roof tiles has out paced the manufacturing process. This means that roof tiles are difficult to get hold of – and that the prices have increased. Having been in the building trade for over 40 years the owner, Daryl Collins set up Colourchange UPVC nine years ago and has established excellent supply chains. Over the past year, like all businesses in the home improvement market, we have encountered huge delays in the manufacturing of windows and doors. Whilst other companies struggled to get stock we have received a regular flow, albeit having to wait months rather than weeks for goods. Our divisions Suffolk Conservatory and Office Garden Rooms have continued to thrive, with forward planning we have maintained a regular building schedule. Despite the frustrating hikes in prices Colourchange continues to be as competitive as possible on pricing, offering excellent value with quality products at the best prices.

How Your Windows & Doors Can Help You Save On Your Energy Bills
Do you ever feel as though your energy bills just keep climbing higher and higher? Unfortunately, this may get worse before it gets better. In April 2021, energy costs are expected to rise as the Ofgem Energy Price Cap is raised from £1,032 to £1,138 per year for both gas and electricity. This means that your bills are likely to go up in the near future. Even if you’re using the same amount of energy. But don’t worry, you’re not powerless to protect yourself from this increase in cost. Your windows and doors can be invaluable in helping you to save money on your heating and energy bills, all year round.

Saving on energy bills; Why are my bills so high?

Believe it or not, it might not be because you’re using too much energy. The reason why your bills are so high could be that you’re losing the heat energy through your windows, doors, roof and walls. What’s more, you could be on a punishingly expensive energy tariff. Especially if it’s been years since you switched suppliers. The folks at Switch-Plan could tell you a thing or two about how to save on energy bills. Not to mention, they could save you up to £300 per year by helping you switch to a better energy plan and tariff. However, unless you address the issues that are causing the energy you’re paying for from literally flying out of the window, you won’t make optimal savings.

How choosing the right doors and windows can help you save on energy bills. ?

You may be surprised. Even if you have double glazing already, replacing your windows and doors with more energy-efficient equivalents. They can seal the heat energy you’re paying for indoors, where it belongs. What’s more, they can absorb and retain the free heat energy you’re getting from the sun. But that’s not all. During the summer months, they can also keep the house cool, thereby saving you on the cost of air conditioning.

How is the energy efficiency of windows rated?

What makes the difference between good double glazed windows and great double glazed windows? In most cases, it’s the quality of the insulation that they offer. The British Fenestration Ratings Council has developed a standardised way of measuring the quality of the windows and doors you buy. BFRC ratings range from A++ to E based on how many kWh per square meter they can help you save. A++ rated windows and doors can save over 20 kWh per square meter.

How much could you save on your energy bills by replacing your windows and doors?

Your savings will depend on the size of your property and the quality of your windows and doors. However, replacing the windows in a 3 bedroom house with BFRC A++ rated windows could save around £200 per year. Combine this with the £300 per year you could save by switching energy suppliers regularly with the Switch-Plan team, and you have a formula for brilliant savings on your energy bills. All year, every year!

How To Sustainably And Efficiently Renovate Your New Home With The Help Of Colour Change UPVC
Home renovation is exciting, as it allows you to further customise the space in which you live, as well as make some big choices surrounding the efficiency of your home. Renovating your home is not only an exercise in personalisation, but also in sustainability. From opting for green energy tariffs, such as Economy 10 electricity, to eco-friendly renovation, you can make lots of changes to improve the efficiency and overall look of your home, without sacrificing your eco-responsibility. Our services at Colourchange UPVC allow you to compliment your home with renovated windows, doors, and conservatories in a range of colours and models, while keeping your home secure and energy efficient. Improve the efficiency of your home, starting with your roof Opting for a green energy tariff, or a sustainable energy plan, is all well and good, but if you are losing heat through a poorly insulated home, then there’s not much point in investing in renewables at home. Insulating your walls, windows, doors and roof brings a whole range of benefits, from saving money to protecting the environment. Colour Change UPVC offers a range of insulated roofs for your conservatory to ensure that you aren’t losing out on money nor energy. Without a doubt, warmroof is our most favoured service. It allows you to completely transform your old conservatory roof with fully insulated materials, allowing you to use it all year round. In Suffolk, there is a beautiful range of house types, all of which require different styles and compliments. That’s why we have such an extensive range of conservatories, as well as alternatives to conservatories, to add value to your property and improve its functionality. Keep your windows secure Did you know that over 10% of your home’s energy can be lost through poorly insulated windows? Opting for double or triple glazing will slow down the transfer of heat from inside your home to the outside, helping you keep energy trapped in during the cold winter months. Moreover, during the summer, well-fitted and energy efficient windows can ensure that your home remains cool, despite the rising temperatures outside. Customise your front door, while keeping your home safe and warm Colourchange UPVC offer an extensive range of doors for your home, UPVC doors which are made from reinforced steel, to a classically designed composite door. Whichever model you choose, you can customise the facade of your home by choosing from an array of colours, materials and glazing options, while also being energy efficient. Get yourself some roofline… Directly below the roof and eaves of your property, there is some cladding, fascias of soffits which form the ‘roofline’. Over time, these materials can crack or rot, reducing the efficiency of your home. By opting for UPVC roofline, you can be reassured that it will last far longer, look great and require next to no maintenance. Renovating and insulating your home isn’t just about the big changes, but it’s also in the small details.

You can have a chat with our experts about what is best for your home, and browse our products.

Green Homes Grant Scheme
The Government have announced a new Green Homes Grant scheme. The scheme will see vouchers, worth up to £5,000 issued to homeowners in England to make their homes more energy efficient. Launching in September we still don’t know how the scheme will work and when the vouchers will be available from. What is being reported so far is: As part of the Green Homes Grant scheme, eligible homeowners will be able to use the vouchers to help pay for environmentally friendly improvements such as installing loft, floor and wall insulation or double-glazing – we don’t know if it will include doors and insulated conservatory roofs yet. What is the Green Homes Grant? The scheme, as we understand it, will see the Government giving homeowners in England vouchers towards the cost of energy efficient improvements, which should cover much – and in some cases all – of the cost. People will have to apply for a voucher once the scheme is up and running in September. Once received they will then be able to spend it to improve their homes. The aim of the scheme is to help homeowners and promote energy efficiency, but also to help boost the economy during the coronavirus pandemic by creating jobs. We certainly expect to be busier and are already looking for extra staff. What can I buy with the vouchers? The Treasury says the vouchers can pay for "green improvements such as loft, wall and floor insulation", while Business Secretary Alok Sharma has indicated that double-glazing will also be included. The Government hasn't yet given a complete list, so other improvements may also be covered, we expect doors to be included and understand that boilers for central heating will not. How much will the vouchers be worth? Most homeowners will qualify for a maximum of £5,000 per household. The Government scheme will cover two thirds of the cost. For example, if you are replacing windows and the bill comes to £4,500, the scheme would provide vouchers to the value of £3,000 and you would pay the balance of £1,500 (you get your new windows for £1,500!) Low income families can qualify for £10,000 worth of improvements without the requirement to pay anything. New windows and doors with the additional energy saving will also mean that homeowners save money year after year. This sounds like an excellent deal for homeowners. Who will be able to get the vouchers? The Government said it hopes the scheme will help pay for improvements in over 600,000 homes across England – so the vouchers should be fairly widely available. There has been no indication that the grants will be linked to household income and we await confirmation. The threshold for the £10,000 hasn’t been released yet and we await details of that too. How can I apply for a voucher? Patience will be required! The scheme is set to be launched at “some point” in September. Applications for grants will need to be made online. We believe that there will be recommended accredited suppliers. As a specialist, established business with trained, tested and certified fitters we would expect to qualify. Once we have provided a quote and the work has been approved, a voucher will be issued. It is worth noting that the Government hasn't said how long it could take for an application to be approved and a voucher issued. I think that there will be a mad rush at the start so you may want to find your product and price early! Will any company be able to do this – or is it just specific installers? No, only registered and certified businesses will be able to undertake the work. With the Green Deal negotiating with suppliers was difficult because the numbers were limited and prices were inflated. We have never enhanced our prices to reduce them with artificial discounts, and we are not about to start. This means that you really will get a massive saving. I was planning to order double-glazing now – should I wait? As explained there may be an assessment needed to get these vouchers – and not everyone may be able to get what they want. We have four simple values Honesty, Integrity, Quality and Value. We don’t know the details yet, but the programme does look like it will be very attractive, and it would be wrong for us to say you shouldn’t wait. Now that causes us a problem because we are just coming out of lockdown and getting back into the flow of things. But it would run against the ethics of our business to infer that it is not worth waiting to find out more detail. Whilst it may not be the best time to place an order you should still come and see us and get a quotation to ensure that you are closer to the front of the queue when the vouchers are issued. I already have an order with you – will I still get vouchers? We do not know if the government will backdate the scheme and whether you can apply retrospectively. We do not believe that will be the case. We will try and help wherever we can, but I guess that if you have paid a deposit the government will not support a claim. This will be immensely frustrating for some but please be patient with us, it is a position that the government has placed us in and not any action that we have undertaken. Please be aware that we would have ordered your products and the price of your deposit will not cover the costs that we would have incurred. Because windows and doors are measured for individual houses they have no value once manufactured because no two doors and windows are exactly the same.

Single Storey Extensions
From “Grand Designs”, “Love it or List it”, “Ugly house to Lovely house” or one of the multitude of broadcasted TV make over shows, there is a common theme – Single storey extensions. One of the questions that we are often asked at Colourchange UPVC is “what is the difference between a single storey extension and a conservatory?” When conservatories were simply made of upvc frames, glass and a polycarbonate roof there was a significant difference. But now we see bifold doors, insulated roofs, supporting brickwork, fitted out with underfloor heating and integrated lighting and sound systems the gap between the modern conservatory and a single storey extension has narrowed. If you are looking to develop your property with a single storey extension here are things to consider. Budget is clearly key – for a standard project plan £1,500 to £1,900 a square meter, add around 5% for architects fees, engineer and survey fees may add another £1,000 to £2,000. Don’t forget the VAT! Planning permission – there is no easy answer. You may be able to extend within “planning development rights”, avoiding the need for planning permission, if your project height and footprint meet permitted development criteria. You will certainly need to comply with all building regulations. Colourchange UPVC, specialists in providing UPVC and aluminium colouring services for retail and trade customers, have a dedicated single story extension and conservatory installation team under their “Suffolk Conservatory” brand. Make your project easier with their office team who take care of all the legal requirements, plan the project and make it easier for you.

Tips about condsensation and ventilation
Do you remember times before houses were packed with loft insulation, before cavity wall insulation and double glazing? Houses with single glazed windows had ice on the inside, draughty floor boards and a howling gale that came through the windows and doors, the “central heating” was a fire place or a range!. As we drive forward with more energy efficiency, better insulation, draught-proof windows, doors and floors we have sealed up our houses, at the same time made our homes warmer than ever before. Modern living has resulted in people living in smaller spaces with tumble dryers, radiators, house plants and more showers/baths. All these add moisture to your home – this creates a dramatic increase in warm, water laden air. For security and insulation reasons, we also don’t leave our windows open. Why spend money heating a place to open windows and have that cold air flow in and the hot air rush out? The result is a developing problem in modern houses. we have a problem with condensation, mouldy walls. Mould around windows, peeling paint around windows, a line of mould on the wall/ceiling line. This is the reason trickle ventilators were specified in building regulations in the 90's. All new builds and extensions had to be fitted with trickle vents. Today there are Positive Input Ventilation Systems which can be installed but window trickle vents are a cheaper and easier option. So if you are thinking about replacing your old windows which already have trickle vents, your new windows will need to have them too (assuming they were required under the original building regulation requirement when they were installed) The new vents should offer at least the same capacity as the existing outgoing vents. What creates the biggest problem? The most common contributors to high levels of water laden air in the home are towels on radiators, showers and boiling on the hob. Simple steps can be taken to help. Following a shower open the window and close the door to the bathroom. Let the air circulate in the bathroom and the water laden air will be replaced with fresh air. This saves all this moisture spreading around the house. Boiling on the hob – install and then use an extractor fan, as you see the water levels decrease in the pot all the water is circulating around your house without and extractor fan. Towels on radiators create large amounts of moisture which becomes airborne. Open a window directly above the radiator to allow the moisture filled air to be replenished.

A new trend in grey windows?
Coloured windows, doors and conservatories. For the last 4 years Anthracite grey has been the number 1 colour that our specialist colouring unit has asked for. But is there a new trend developing? RAL 7005 has is being requested more and more. Much lighter than the Anthracite which has a deep grey/purple tone, the RAL7005 known with the less appealing name of "Mouse Grey" is lighter, but dark enough to provide good contrast, being lighter also suggests that it will show less dust. It will be interesting to see if this becomes the new grey!

Heatwave creates local business boom
Featured in the East Anglian Daily Times today As sweltering temperatures melt the roads, parch the grass and bring back memories of summers past they have also created furnace like temperatures in conservatories across the region. Something that has benefited local business Colourchange UPVC, short-listed for the East Anglian Business awards in 2017, they are based at Rendlesham in Suffolk and are the region’s leading installers of insulated replacement roofs for conservatories. Owner, Daryl Collins, told us that “business enquiries had tripled with the recent hot spell, the excessive heat is not just impossible to sit in it, causes all sorts of problems and damage as temperatures in conservatories soared above 120 degrees” The insulated roofs are renowned for keeping a conservatory warm in the winter and cool in the Summer allowing home owners to use the room all year round

On site colouring
We are frequently asked if we can colour windows that are already installed. This refreshes the appearance of a property, transforming your home. I use the term colour rather than paint because UPVC has silicon within it and this prevents normal paint from bonding to the surface. Painted windows often look great when first done but a little bit of heat or a cold snap will often see blister or cracks forming. We use a bonding technology which creates a chemical reaction between the frames and paint, when this dries the surfaces are bonded together. By the nature of the process we can only colour the exterior surfaces, not internal. Whether doors, a conservatory or windows we can transform your home.
