Double Glazing

Double glazing windows and doors is expensive, but an excellent method of draught proofing as well as adding an attractive home improvement. As well as cutting heating costs, it also reduces outside noise. There are two methods of installing double glazing:

There are different kits available, but the conventional kit consists of either a UPVC framework-which gives a rigid, weather resistant finish or an aluminium framework.

Frames are made with the glass attached and then fitted directly into the existing framework or to the walls of the reveal.

Panels can be arranged as permanently fixed, sliding or hinged. An opening is advisable for ventilation and fire safety purposes. This will also make cleaning the panes easier.
