D/L FAQ’S

WD40 and a wipe down of the plastic framework each year. By contrast, timbers windows and doors expand and contract during the seasons and need frequent adjustment to ensure that they continue to close properly. On top of that we need to repaint externally every few years to preserve the integrity of the woodwork.


IS DOUBLE GLAZING SECURE?

In terms of security the average double glazed door or window has no fewer than 3 locking points which offers up far more security than a simple sash catch. Modern double glazed windows all come with locks within the handles as standard.

MULTI POINT DOUBLE GLAZING LOCKING

By contrast, standard wooden windows offer up very little in terms of security unless you go to the trouble of installing additional locking mechanisms.


WHAT ABOUT NOISE POLLUTION?

Even the cheapest double glazed windows are far more effective than the best traditional timber windows when it comes to combating noise pollution. There is no argument here as all of the opening parts of a double glazed window are fitted with rubber or plastic seals making it far better at reducing unwanted external noise. Even if you upgraded a timber window by installing a double glazed unit it still wouldn’t work anywhere near as well.


WHAT ABOUT THE COST OF NEW WINDOWS?

Once again the double glazing is a clear winner as the average cost of a double glazed window, installed, works out about 25% less than a timber counterpart that still need at least 3 coats of paint to the interior and the exterior before you can call it finished.


WHAT ABOUT ENERGY SAVING?

Everyone knows by now that double glazing will save you money on your heating bills. Heat loss through single glazed timber windows accounts for up to 35% of all heat loss in the average home. By installing double glazing you are effectively reducing the heat loss via the windows to a minimum and therefore saving a lot of money on your fuel bills.


IS SECONDARY GLAZING A GOOD IDEA?

There are many situations where secondary glazing makes an ideal solution. For example, you may have a property with reasonably good windows but they let in noise, dirt and don’t keep the heat in. If the windows are only a few years old then it makes sense to install secondary glazing rather than opting for complete replacement.

The secondary glazing units are usually single glazed but become they come with seals on the overlaps they do help with all the positive factors that double glazing represents.


CAN I GET DOUBLE GLAZING IN ANY COLOUR?

Just about. I’m told that it is an additional process to have double glazing made up to your own colour specification. The additional cost is about 10% to 15% on top of the normal price for white uPVC.


IS TRIPLE GLAZING WORTH THE MONEY?

I would have to say yes although we don’t really live in a country where we all need triple glazing. That said, there are many situations where the installation of triple glazing will have a huge positive impact on the property in terms of all around comfort.


DOES DOUBLE GLAZING ADD VALUE TO A PROPERTY?

Replacing the windows to any property will add value. By adding double glazing windows that are clearly suited to the property you will most certainly be adding value, the actual amount will be determined by your postcode.
