The Future is Here
Seeing the sun stream through your windows is one of the best ways to start your day. Unless of course your glass isn’t looking its best. Watermarks, dust and grime really show up in the sunshine. Instead of enjoying your day, you end up calling a window cleaner or getting out the ladder and cleaning the windows yourself.

Balcony Systems Defined
Balcony systems is a term that is used a lot but can mean many things.
First of all, let’s define a balcony. This is “a platform enclosed by a wall or balustrade on the outside of a building, with access from an upper-floor window or door”.

Juliet balconies are increasingly popular and deservedly so. Often used in apartments or added to bedrooms and upstairs living room areas, they can transform a dark or dull room. Open up a small window or part of a wall and you make the most of your view and add extra daylight for a bright and spacious feeling. If you’re adding a Juliet balcony to your property, either as part of a new-build project or a renovation, the railings you choose have a significant bearing on the final appearance of your project.

Lofty ideas from Balcony Systems – putting the finishing touch into Loft Conversions.
Loft conversions and extensions are an increasingly popular trend with homeowners seeking to add value, space and light to their homes without incurring the expense and hassle of moving.
They’re also an excellent investment: according to a recent survey by the Nationwide Building Society, adding both a bedroom and bathroom through extensions or loft conversions, in London or anywhere across the UK, can add up to 23% to a property’s value.
Many balcony areas and terraces are created above living spaces, whether on a flat roof above an extension or living space, kitchen or bedroom or on the top floor of an apartment complex.
Great attention needs to be given to sealing the balcony surface and waterproofing it.
