Grandison Road, Battersea


New project in Grandison Road, Battersea about to start on site 13th March 2018

We are about to commence on site with our project in Grandison Road, located “between the commons” in the London Borough of Wandsworth. We are going to completely remodel the ground and rear of this Victorian terraced house.

Our clients needs as a family had recently changed in that their two boys aged 14 & 11 have very different needs for the space from when they first bought the property, several years ago. They requested different zones so that when the boys have friends around, they have a room to themselves, and the rest of the family have a place too.

Choosing The Right Windows For Your Home

Choosing The Right Windows


Choosing the right windows for your home can be a very tricky decision indeed. Windows often play a large role in determining the character of your property, so it is important to take these things into consideration:



Your budget should play a pivotal role when selecting what material you use for your windows, as the costs vary significantly. If you want to go down the more economical route, then uPVC windows are your best bet, while aluminium is relatively more expensive. The most expensive windows are made from aluclad, a combination of timber and aluminium.



The insulation levels of your windows are calculated by a system called U-value, which takes into account the glazing type, the frame design and age and the quality of installation. The lower the U-value, the better insulation the window offers. Generally speaking, older properties are not insulated as well as newer ones.


Choosing The Right Colour

Most windows come with a traditional white frame, but if you want to go for something that suits the rest of your interior, then you may want to consider different colours. Aluminium and most high-end windows come in an assortment of different colours. The right window frame can make a huge difference to the finish of your property.


Double Or Triple Glazing

If you want your home to be eco-friendly, then you should look to go for triple glazing on your windows. Despite coming at a relevant cost, triple glazing is a highly effective way to soundproof and insulate your property. Double glazing is also a viable option, and is relatively cheaper.

Make Your House Extension Eco-Friendly


If you are looking to boost the value of your property and increase livable space, then a house extension can do you wonders. An extension represents a momentous investment, so not only is it important to get it right but also to be mindful of the ongoing expenditures. This is why extending your home  as eco-friendly as possible is so important, as it will reduce costs and also have a less harmful impact on the environment. APT Renovation reveals how you can end up paying less and doing more for the environment:


The type of lighting you choose has a significant correlation to the windows you choose. For example, if you go with Velux windows or skylights, you will have a great deal of natural light during the day, and will not need to use as much electricity. More and more, people are opting to go for a house extension with lots of glass, which incorporates the outside with the inside. This makes it a more natural and eco-friendly living space, as well as aesthetically contemporary. During the evenings, artificial lighting will, of course, be needed, so energy efficient light bulbs can do the trick, and are far cheaper than normal light bulbs.


The best way to insulate your housing extension is by installing a layer of insulation material to an external wall, which is then embedded in seamlessly and then covered. This method is a brilliant way to ensure that your heating bills will be minimal and also reduces the negative impact on the environment. Not only that, but this type of insulation prevents moisture and damp by warming the dew out of the wall. It is also effective in blocking out external noise.

Heating Panels

Infrared heating panels are relatively new to domestic properties, but they are not only incredibly cost-effective, they are equally effective in heating a property. The way it works is by transmitting electromagnetic radiation from visible light. Although the term ‘radiation’ is often considered harmful, this method is completely safe, and naturally, occurs within the human body. These panels are versatile in design and can make for an aesthetic enhancement to your house extension.

It is no wonder a long session of painting can result in a headache, as the large majority of paint brands contain toxic petrochemicals. Not only are these harmful for the environment, but they can also result in neurological disorders and other health risks if exposed to them for great lengths of time. Luckily, there are a number of eco-friendly paints on the market that are of excellent quality.

Underfloor Heating

Underfloor heating is becoming increasingly popular in properties, particularly in house extensions, as they provide a wonderfully warm and homely feeling, especially in the winter. This method of heating is often regarded as more expensive than other types but is an excellent way to make your home more energy efficient. It also distributes warmth far more evenly as opposed to the sparse heating standard radiators bring.
