As far a energy conservation goes one of the best things you can do for your home heating bill is to have double glazed windows fitted. While the initial cost is rather expensive, the benefit will be felt soon after in your energy bill savings, with energy savings from around £100 to £200 a year. However please remember it takes close to ten years and potentially longer to recoup your initial layout.

As my regular readers will know I am a huge fan of the DIY mentality. However window fitting is one of the more difficult task you can work on yourself. If you have any doubts at all about how to fit the double glazing I would recommend hiring professional help, as glass can be very, very dangerous if not handled correctly.

The first thing that you will need to do when replacing your old windows is of course remove the old window frames. While this sounds like fun, everyone likes to feel like batman smashing through a window, please remember basic safety and wear, gloves, goggles and a mask. I also recommend using dustsheets and consider your family and pets. Glass shards could potentially hurt somebody if not cleared up correctly.

One choice I am often asked is what is a better investment, Brazilian hardwood frames or uPVC. Of course this depends on the look you are after and the style of your surroundings. A county cottage could potentially look at odds with white uPVC frames. uPVC will last almost indefinably, without much maintenance. On the other hand hardwood frames will require you to go to the trouble of painting them every so often perhaps even every year! Personally being a carpenter I'm a big believer in "wood is good" but this is one of the few places I think PVC is better. Just because of the lazy factor that you don't have to paint it.

It is worth pointing out here to any joiners that are reading that fitting PVC is rather different to fitting wooden frames, and even the most experienced carpenter would find that his expertise and intuition would not apply to uPVC doors and windows, because unlike wood, plastic frames must be fitted to allow them to expand. I would also recommend buying the specialist plastic cutting tools and woodworking tools tends to rip uPVC quite a bit and leaves a ragged edge.

Building a conservatory is far easier than you might think and our DIY conservatories are specially designed for easy self-assembly. However, while you CAN put one up yourself, with the price of fitting falling and falling why would you want to.

In these articles I always try to give good advice on DIY, tools and woodworking. I feel like I've been quite biased in this article, and it's true that I really do not like dealing with uPVC or glass.

In summary while you can fit your own doors, windows and conservatories, I personally would leave it to the professionals. Remember people measure twice cut once.
