Stress-Free Steel Replacement Window Installation Into Existing Frames

 

 

Turning up late, taking a long lunch, leaving a load of mess, damaging your property: these are all things that may be deterring you from updating your home, because who wants the inevitable stress that follows incompetent workers? Not you. That’s why you can take a sigh of relief when contracting Jenny Fields to fit your steel replacement windows, an easy, reliable service that will leave your home looking beautiful!

 

We make it easy

 

Half the population states that having builders working on your home is as stressful as arranging a wedding, buying a house, or even having a baby.The Jenny Fields experience; however, is one of ease and efficiency. Our aim is to offer a bespoke service that suits your individual steel replacement needs, and whether it’s a call or email enquiry, we are always happy to talk through options for your home. 

 

Keep the look and feel

 

One type of  enquiry we often receive is that of asking whether existing timber frames can be left untouched, and replacement windows fitted into them. We understand that original timber frames are often an integral feature of a home and we usually find that the frames can be retained or brought back to their former glory.

 

Our experience

 

Fitting steel replacement windows into existing frames is a practise we are very experienced in, and our steel replacement windows are measured to fit snugly into existing frames. They even cover up old paint lines, meaning no further internal or external decoration is required! Timber frames are usually found in older builds and, for this reason, we also offer a service wherein we can repair or replace rotten window sills, whilst keeping the remainder of the frame and any decorations intact. 

 

Lighten your space

 

Having steel replacement windows fitted is sure to brighten your indoor space, and give the exterior a new lease of life whilst respecting the existing framework. Spruce up your home this Winter with Jenny Fields and enjoy a stress-free process from start to finish.

Create A Quiet Home Office In A Busy Household With Jennyfields Partitions

 

The Covid-19 pandemic has led to a huge increase in people working from home, and for many this was a new experience. You may have found that your home was not set up to cater to working from home, and the members of your household might be at home a lot more often than previously. This may have created a few more distractions that you may be used to. No doubt, adjustments will need to be made in order to create a home office environment and quiet workspace. Jennyfields are specialists in partitions and steel replacement windows and doors. Here are 3 ways you can create a quiet home office in a busy household using our partitions:

 

Sound Proof

 

While working from home comes with many benefits, there are also some distractions too. 

Installing our partitions into your home office will give you a sound proof environment so you can create a quiet home office.

 

Your own room

 

Rather than trying to work in your living room or bedroom, it may be helpful to separate your work space from your home life. Perhaps you’re considering turning an old playroom or conservatory you rarely use into your home office? A great way you can do this is by installing Jennyfields partitions into your home. This separates the area from the other rooms in your house, and provides you with a modern and sleek look and feel.  

 

Clear or patterned glass

 

With our partitions, you have the choice of either clear or patterned glass. If you have children at home it may help to have patterned glass so they aren’t able to see you, as this may lead to them wanting to come in when you’re in a meeting or a similar situation. But on the other hand, if you would like to have clear glass so your household can see you and vice versa, this will also provide a modern, classy look to your home. Whichever option you choose, our partitions allow you to create a quiet home office, no matter how noisy your home is. 

 

Why Jennyfields?

 

At Jennyfields, we are a trusted, family-run business that has provided exceptional service and dependable products for over 35 years. We specialise in partitions and steel replacement windows and doors for all styles.

How To Create A Stylish Home Office With Limited Space

 

So you want to transform a space into a home office, but you’re finding it tricky with the small space you have? It’s a common modern-day problem as we try to accommodate a new working-from-home lifestyle, but fear not, there are plenty of useful tips and tricks to help you maximise your space without compromising on style.

 

Desk Space

 

A traditional desk in your mind may be a clunky, heavy piece of furniture which fills a room, but it doesn’t have to be! You may find that using a ladder-style desk with shelves above and below the primary workspace to be a great solution, and allows you to display books, folders, plants, and anything else you may need throughout the day. Alternatively investing in a fold-out desk that can simply be packed away at the end of your day might make for a clever desk idea which doesn’t compromise space, and can be a decorative addition to the office!

 

Natural Light & Furniture

 

To make a home office look bigger, it is important to maximise the natural light, and choose furniture and items which further elevate the bright, uncluttered nature of the room. Why not try updating your windows to allow for extra daylight? Steel Replacement Windows may be just what you’re after, and also add an elegant touch to the interior and exterior of your home! Considering a window refresh and also using a light colour for your walls and furniture is a good idea to give the illusion of a clear, and bigger space, and even choosing a transparent chair will help to declutter the office. 

 

Storage

 

Storage is your best friend in a small home office- if optimised correctly! When choosing storage such as drawers or bookcases ensure you keep in mind the mantra of ‘up, not out’. By choosing storage that is taller than it is wide you are making use of the entire vertical stretch of the room, without reducing floor space; this can dramatically change the feel of your office, and allow you to store more without feeling like you’re surrounded by ‘things’. Shelving can also be a great way to maximise storage above pre-existing furniture, and if you are unable to purchase a ladder-style desk, adding shelves above your existing desk will give the same great outcome!

 

It is always possible to create a home office that is inviting, and using these suggestions you can design your office in a way that suits your needs and style so that you no longer dread Mondays!

How To Maintain Your Steel Windows & Doors

 

You may not automatically think of windows needing maintenance, but you'd be wrong. Many steel windows can last the lifetime of the house itself as long as they are looked after properly. It’s often a simple process of just keeping your windows clean and rust-free, so that they remain in top condition. It doesn't take long and isn't back-breaking work luckily, even just 10 minutes every now and then can mean that your windows won’t need replacing, meaning your hard-earned cash stays in your pocket. 

 

Condensation and mould 

 

These are tricky things to keep under control in our environment. Our weather has a habit of being very wet and cold when our homes are warm and dry. This creates an area of condensation on the windows. A good way to keep this under control is using a dehumidifier to keep the damp under control. If condensation does appear, make sure you wipe it away with a cloth to prevent any build-up. Over time, condensation can lead to mould. The best way to deal with this is to remove any visible mould and clean the area well, making sure to clean away condensation in future as a preventative measure. 

 

Rust and corrosion

 

For metal windows and doors, rust is a common problem. The best way to monitor this is to regularly check your windows both inside and out to find any places where corrosion or rust has occurred. To prevent this from happening, steel windows can undergo galvanisation. This is the method of covering the steel in a thin layer of zinc. This method slows the rusting process dramatically, it is usually done before the windows are made through electrolysis or spray flaming. However, you can buy products that are spray-on; these provide an added layer of protection. 

 

Our recommendations: 

 

In life, your metal windows and doors aren't generally your priority, but a few bits of maintenance now and then can add years to the lifetime of your windows. Make sure all areas of the windows are clean of dirt, dust, flies and paint etc. If your windows aren't opening the way they should add a bit of WD-40 to ease it. A large part of windows use is to keep the weather on the outside. Check that the seals are working properly to keep your heating bills low. If your windows are put in with putty, check this yearly to see if any parts need to be replaced.

Create a stylish home office with Jennyfields partitions & room dividers

 

Has lockdown meant you've spent too long working in a space that is cramped and dark? Well now's the time to change that. Gone are the days where an office would be a bland room with a few family photos dotted around. Make it part of your home, rather than the space you dread to go to on a work day. Make it a space that's bright and airy, using natural light so that it's not the hidden part of your home, why not try steel interior slim line screens? It may not have been your first thought for a home office renovation, but it should have been. 

 

Sound proofing

 

Anyone that works from home knows that video calls don't always go to plan if you have children, or even family members in the next room. It can result in screaming or laughing being a constant background to a serious call; not exactly the impression you want to give in a work call. With steel interior doors, you can work to minimize the background noise. Our slim line screens are created to block out excess noise. Meaning you can keep your concentration and have uninterrupted calls. 

 

Types of glass

 

Fed up of a boring and unexciting office? Change it up a bit and add some colours. Whether you’re looking for new doors or windows, this method can mean that your office has a whole new look and feel, when you've only changed one thing. Choosing between clear or patterned steel interior screens is a very personal choice, so we provide you with all the available options to make the space right for you. If you need clear windows to keep an eye on your children, or want a pattern so you can shut away your office at the end of the day; the choice is yours. 

 

Full locking security 

 

Your office needs to be a safe place, with potentially confidential information, you need to be able to lock it away. Steel interior doors have a full locking capability to ensure that your office is secure. Whether it's just keeping the kids out so they don't draw on your work, or keeping a clients information private, security is key.

3 Reasons To Add Steel Window Replacements To Your Home

 

Has lockdown got you looking at your windows and grimacing? Are you finding they don't quite fit the bill anymore? Why not change it up. Transform your space with something as simple as new steel windows. Not sure it’ll work? Believe us, it will. 

 

 

Give your room a new feel

 


Everyone knows that windows frame the view. Change the way both your house, and the view looks. Why don't you try something old. The world is so focused on the new and improved that they've missed that steel is the way to go. Don’t blend in with the crowd. Steel windows, with their timeless classical character, can change the feel of your home as well as boost the overall value. The varied design and patterns of steel windows can transform the look of a room, preserving a feel from decades ago.

 

 

Steel Windows is where it started: Keep the character

 

When someone says “windows” what do you think of? The snazzy double glazing encased in plastic? The cheesy adverts you see on TV? Let’s change the way people see windows. Why would you want new when you can have classic? You can never go wrong with steel windows, these aren't just a phase that will quickly pass, steel windows are the future as well as the past. If you think that you’d have to give up double glazing in order to have new windows, you’d be wrong. Any new windows provide modern day benefits, including security and thermal efficiency. There’s no need to give up the character to maintain the 21st century perks. You can have both.  

 

 

Keep it simple

 

Steel creates windows like nothing else, not being affected by air moisture and varying temperatures mean they are useful in any climate or country. Add on that they don't accumulate mold like other materials, what’s not to like? Have fears that they might rust? WRONG. They won't. Nor will they corrode or suffer from general weather buffing. Whether you’re in an area of constant rain, or in a place with no protection from the wind, these timeless classics are always an option.
