Our UPVC Windows come in two distinctive styles – Ovolo which features a classic sculptured curve to the frame edge and chamfered, which has straight clean lines for a contemporary feel. The profile frames are 70mm, internally glazed, and a robust reinforcing as standard. Energy saving ‘Pilkington K glass’ and our practical and stylish windows come in various colours, which allows you to colour co-ordinate your front door and fascia, soffits and guttering requirements. Whichever you choose you can be guaranteed that we are fitting the best and secure windows to your home.
Try opening the window sightly or getting a dehumidifier, especially if steam is present from having had a shower. This will help circulate the air and reduce the condensation in between the panes of glass. If the condensation becomes unmanageable, it’s probably time to consider getting new double glazed windows.
The argon gas that sits between the panes of glass is a poor conductor of heat, meaning that the warm air from the heating in your home cannot escape easily. This makes double glazing incredibly successful at keeping your home warm. Double glazing is a worthwhile investment for people who want to improve energy efficiency and save a bit of money on their bills in the long run.
The two panes of glass that form double glazed windows absorb sound vibrations travelling through the gas, therefore acting as a dampener to noise, and reducing disturbance from outside noise.
The lifespan of your double glazing will depend on several factors. It isn’t a “one size fits all” scenario. The condition of your home in general, its location, and the quality of installation and manufacturer can all affect the amount of time you’ll get out of your double glazing. Generally, however, if these factors are all considered, your double-glazed windows should last between 20-30 years.
There are several ways to try to identify how old your double glazing is. As the windows get older, a small gap between the panes will form. You also might notice • condensation between the panes • draughts coming in • increase in noise • stiffness • leaks
Generally, in the UK, double glazed windows are somewhere between 20mm-24mm, but sometimes up to 28mm. However, the optimum thickness for thermal insulation is 24mm.
