If you already have older style double glazing in your house in Abbots Langley but are experiencing issues, like draughts or condensation between the glass panes, the time may have come to think about upgrading your windows.

Condensation is caused by a small hole occurring in the sealed unit, enabling warmer air from inside the house to enter the gap between the window panes. As the warmer air makes contact with the cooler external pane of glass, moisture forms, with condensation being the result. If this is a regular occurrence, especially in winter time, you could either replace the sealed unit, or get brand new windows.

Changing to double glazing will result in an immediate improvement in the warmth and soundproofing, if your house in Abbots Langley currently has windows with single glazing. The upgrade to double glazed windows may also help to increase the value of your home if you elect to sell.
