    Have had my double glazing in for about 12 years, but alas some of the panels are letting in some condensation, are they replaceable (glass panels) or do I have to have the complete unit

    easiest to replace the unit, i.e the 2 panes of glass. measure them measure the cavity and order one. or just get a glazier to do it

    Cheers for the reply:- Methinks you are right, no need to replace the whole unit £500+, just the one opening window, and a fixed side pane in the French window, will scour the local adds.

    No need to replace the frames, just the glass. The best person would be a double glazing doctor, low overheads means lower prices, often a one man band and quick turn around. Don't go with big full page window companies as they'll make a killing on you but only if they even bother to turn up.

    Advice taken, will look up some old invoices and maybe contact the original company that done the business, will post when sorted. :)
