Building a sustainable future with Dekko

Today’s consumers are increasingly concerned with sustainability, so naturally, the installer that sells the best sustainable home improvements will come out ahead. Dekko Window Systems Sales Director Kurt Greatrex showcases the company’s offerings that can help…

In an age where environmental consciousness is at the forefront of global conversations, sustainable living has transcended from being a mere buzzword and has instead become a guiding principle for many.

As the world grapples with the impacts of climate change, the call for eco-friendly practices has extended into various facets of our lives, including the places we call home, and in the UK, the pursuit of sustainable home improvement products has emerged as a key indicator of the nation’s growing interest in reducing its carbon footprint and safeguarding the environment for future generations.

The rising green consciousness

Sustainable home

Over the past decade, the UK has witnessed a significant shift in public attitudes towards environmental responsibility.

Consumers are increasingly looking for sustainable alternatives across a broad spectrum of products, from food and fashion to transport and energy sources – while a mounting awareness of climate issues has also naturally extended into the realm of home improvement.

The UK government has also played a crucial role in accelerating the adoption of sustainable home improvement practices, and in recent years, various policies and financial incentives have been introduced to encourage homeowners to embrace eco-friendly alternatives.

In 2019, the UK became the first major economy in the world to pass laws to end its contribution to global warming by 2050, a target requiring the country to bring all greenhouse gas emissions to net zero in less than 30 years.

But a much more pressing deadline is the Future Homes Standard, the first major stepping stone to becoming net zero carbon that requires all new homes in England to be futureproofed with high levels of energy efficiency by 2025 – less than two years away.

The strict set of standards will ensure that all new homes built in England from 2025 will produce 75 to 80% less carbon emissions than homes delivered under current regulations.

These initiatives have helped raise awareness and provided a push towards greener living, fostering a climate in which sustainable home improvement is seen as not just a trend, but a responsible choice.

It’s therefore vital that installers are equipped with the right products – after all, if homeowners are actively seeking more sustainable home improvements, the installer that is able to provide these will naturally have the edge over the competition.

At Dekko, we have many products in our armoury contributing towards achieving a net zero carbon goal – both our Infinity range of uPVC windows and doors as well as our Räum range of luxury aluminium products boast low u-values which contribute to sustainability.

But we are also the UK’s largest fabricator of Residence Collection windows and doors, a range that surpasses most products when it comes to thermal efficiency.

Both R9 and R7 offer a u-value of 1.2 with double glazing and 0.8 with triple glazing, while R2 offers a u-value of 1.2 with double glazing, and an impressive 0.79 when triple glazed.

All three ranges guarantee an A++ energy rating, easily passing British Building Regulations as well as achieving one of the highest classifications on the British Standard Weather Test.

Well equipped

As the green movement gains momentum worldwide, the UK stands at the forefront of embracing sustainable home improvement products. Homeowners across the country are demonstrating a genuine interest in reducing their environmental impact while also benefiting from cost savings and enhanced living spaces.

With government support, an evolving industry, and a motivated consumer base, the future looks promising for the growth of sustainable home improvement in the UK, and at Dekko, we’re well equipped to help our valued customers meet this ever growing demand.

The windows look fantastic

"Recently used Dekko Windows to supply the windows and aluminium bi-fold doors for our renovation project. We paid a short visit to their showroom where Rob and Neil were really helpful, showing us around and providing options for us. We were really happy with the whole process and the windows look fantastic. Would definitely recommend this company."
