the paint coating lasts for approximately 10 years before it is likely to require a new coat.


SEEKING SUSTAINABILITY Accoya is also environmentally friendly. More and more self-builders are taking sustainability into consideration when building their homes so specifying the project ensures you are being eco- friendly without compromising on quality and longevity. It has achieved gold standard ‘Cradle to Cradle’ accreditation meaning it has no impact on the environment throughout its lifecycle.


HIGH PERFORMANCE Energy efficiency is also an important factor for the more environmentally conscious self-builder, with whole product U-values as low as 1.0 W/m2


achievable using timber. You should also ensure that your


products are weather tested, provide good sound insulation and are secure. Any good timber window manufacturer will share with you their certification as proof of independent product performance testing. For example all Westbury products are tested by a third party UKAS-


accredited laboratory, PAS24 security tested and Part Q compliant (a necessity in any new build home), ensuring peace of mind for customers.


BRITISH-MADE Using a reputable company based in the UK means you are paying for the product and its craftsmanship rather than import charges. It’s also more likely that they will offer an installation service. Should there be any issues with your order, they can be resolved quickly and effectively, with replacement items delivered to site far sooner than they would be if sourced from abroad. It’s always a good idea to visit the manufacturer showroom (and workshop facility if possible) to see where you’re investing your money.


K A SOUND INVESTMENT


While this is not an exhaustive list of considerations, it is a good starting point to ensure that you are choosing the right product for your home, and to make sure you’re well informed when dealing with potential suppliers. While ticking all of these boxes may cost you a little more money upfront it will certainly save money and time in


the future as using a high-quality, low- maintenance guaranteed product will continue to add value to your property and convenience to your lifestyle.
