DIY windows and doors in Baldock

Ever since the numerous DIY shows emerged on our television screens, doing it yourself seems to have become a national pastime. However, although tackling the decorating, building a simple piece of furniture or even getting to grips with some basic plumbing maybe well within your capabilities, DIY replacement windows and doors should always be left to the professionals.

There is no doubt that DIY has become big business and nothing matches the feeling a good job well done gives you, but not getting it right with double glazing really isn't worth the risk.

For one thing, if you don't get the necessary building control approval you really could end up with some serious problems should you try to sell your home, or worse still, end up being prosecuted and getting slapped with a pretty substantial fine.

Reports have shown that many people experienced legal issues when they tried to sell their home as they never had the necessary paperwork for new windows or doors. Don't make the same mistake with your Baldock property!

Professional window and door fitting for your Baldock home.

Replacement double glazing must comply with the building regulations for England and Wales, they must be properly fitted and have the correct type of glass. Having a professional double glazing fitter do the work offers a good job, peace of mind and a guarantee, why pay your local authority's building control department to inspect and approve all the hard work you've carried out yourself?

When it comes to getting the correct permission, DIY enthusiasts often don't know exactly what they need, or who to get it from. This confusion often leads to thousands of pounds down the drain as apart from prosecutions and fines, we have also heard many stories of homeowners being ordered to either have the job done properly by a certified professional, or having to return the property back to it's original state. Not a position anybody wants to be in!

Also, if you think a few well thought out questions aimed at your suppliers will protect you, think again. The window and frame vendor may offer well intentioned advise to the best of their knowledge, but it is the homeowners responsibility to ensure the correct approval is in place before works are carried out.

In a nutshell, the following is just a taste of what you must do if you want to go down the DIY route:

  • Planning the work.
  • Finding a reputable vendor of replacement double glazed windows, frames and doors.
  • Buying the double glazed units.
  • Trtansporting said units back home, they weigh a considerable amount so a van may need hiring.
  • Contacting the local authority building control department for permission to carry out the work.
  • Submit a building notice to the above department.
  • Should you be creating new window openings, you'll probably have to apply for planning permission too.
  • The local authority will call to inspect the work when it's done and with any luck will sign it off with a compliance certificate. Keep your fingers crossed that you've used the correct materials and done a good job!
  • You can also apply for approval retrospectively. Let's say you're in the process of selling the property, in this case you will need a regularisation certificate.

The above list is not exhaustive, merely a guide. Wouldn't it be easier to call in the professionals to fit your Baldock home with new replacement double glazed windows and doors?

Remember, in some cases, fitting double glazing may require planning permission, and although this is not usually the case with modern houses, it is worth checking before you start work. Always contact your local authority planning department before going ahead.
