Windows of opportunity

Posted on 19 December 2023

We’re replacing around 400 windows, as part of a major upgrade programme in Maidstone. This will help keep the heat in, and the bills down.

We carry out window replacements and improvements every year, as part of our constant programme to maintain and improve our customers’ homes. This investment at Pevensey Court in Maidstone, will be felt for years to come. 

The project is being delivered by our contractor Anglian Building Products.

Hyde’s Director of Asset Management and Sustainability, Luke Driscoll, said: “We’re pleased to be working with Anglian, who’ve been replacing our windows and doors for more than twelve years.

One of our customers at Pevensey Court said: “The experience was very good and Anglian did a good job with the windows. They look quite nice now and they're easier to open and close.”

Sustainability in our choices

All PVC products used in our windows are made from low embodied carbon materials which are made in Britain, reducing supply chain emissions. All products used by Anglian will also be fully recyclable at the end of their 35+ year lifecycle.

Luke added: “Anglian produces all windows installed in Hyde properties, therefore controlling the quality and production of the windows in our customers’ homes.

“We’re impressed with the process, quality control and care that’s employed during the production process. We’re particularly impressed by the sustainability features used, which mirror our own priorities. We want to provide homes that are safe, decent and energy-efficient.”

Our goal is to be sustainable in everything we do, to ensure we’re looking after our customers and the world around us.

When making improvements to our homes we use fabric-first measures and low-carbon technologies to maximise benefits to customers. By making our homes more energy efficient, they’ll be less prone to damp and mould, improving customers’ health.

Between 1 April 2022 and 31 March 2023, we replaced windows and/or doors to 875 buildings, affecting 1,450 households.
