Premium timber windows from JELD-WEN were installed in a
property on tonight's Double Your House for Half the Money, a
renovation programme fronted by celebrity property expert Sarah
Alex and Ben Smith from Hertfordshire featured in the Channel 4
primetime programme, which helps resourceful homeowners double the
size of their property for half the cost of moving house. The
premium timber windows and doors manufacturer supplied brand new
windows for the family's extension, improving the look, security
and energy efficiency of the property. In addition to replacing the
existing windows, JELD-WEN, a founding member of the Wood Window
Alliance, also supplied the patio doors for the project, which

Sarah Beeny is renowned for her expertise in renovating
properties and advising homeowners on the latest trends that can
enhance a home's appearance in addition to lowering overall
maintenance costs. Having moved into the property last year, the
Smiths were keen to build their dream home by creating a stylish
look while improving thermal efficiency and cutting down on costly
energy bills. In addition, they wanted to lower the mortgage and
ensure that the property provided a sound financial investment in
the years to come.
The Smiths were passionate about choosing timber windows for the
project, selecting their new windows from JELD-WEN's
casement range that offers a variety of contemporary and
traditional designs with a higher thermal performance. A slimline
Fenton Sliding Patio door was chosen for the extension, which
provides the largest possible glazed area and improves light
transference to create a greater feeling of space.
Alex Smith said: "We really enjoyed being involved in the show
and are thrilled with the results. We only moved into the house a
year ago and chose the property because we really wanted our own
renovation project. We've always had a keen eye on the latest
interior styles and love the new trend for timber windows as their
versatility means that we could create our own stylish look. Not
only is our home now cosier, but the team has completely
transformed the look of the property too creating a classic look
with a sophisticated finish."
Lucy Woodhead, communications manager at JELD-WEN, said: "We
were so pleased to be chosen as windows supplier for the project.
Timber windows are perfect for a renovation like this one as they
look fantastic, are guaranteed to last for years and can
drastically reduce the cost of your fuel bills. The Smiths have
been quick to cotton on to the trend for timber windows and the
investment means that the property will reap the rewards for years
