Just bought a property where a double glazing pane in the living room needs replacing. TBH, the whole window frame and all the panes could do with replacing, as the frame is an ugly white uPVC. But there's alot of window and alot of frame, so can't just afford at the moment to replace.

So I'm currently looking to just replace the double glazing pane. Does anyone have any recommendations on how to go about? Call a local DB company? Or just measure, order online, and install myself? And how to measure? And what kind of costs am I looking at?

The pane itself measures approximately 67.5cm wide and 83.5cm tall. Not quite sure how thick the panel is though...

Any advice?

Sorry, I know the penchant on this forum for pictures, and I forgot that I actually had one on my camera!

Measure it and go to a local supplier , looks like it will need to be toughened as well, 800 mm from the floor? Fit it yourself should cost about 60-80

Yeah, its less than 800mm from the floor. I think these uPVC windows were put in so long ago that the regs weren't in force back then.

Just hope the new pane doesn't look out of place compared to the others!

With a bay window that size - how much you think it might cost to replace it completely with new wooden framed double glazing? Its the direction we're looking about a year down the line when we have more dosh....
