Double Glazing Atherstone Warwickshire (CV9): Putting into your home in Atherstone, can boost security, reduce noise levels and enhance your home's energy efficiency. The term double glazing actually refers to the method of making these windows using 2 panes of glass, with a gas filled medium between them (typically argon). This inert gas acts as insulation and provides impressive thermal and sound proofing qualities for any home in Atherstone.
If your home in Atherstone is already fitted with older style, and you are living with issues like draughts or condensation, now would be a good time to get new replacement double glazing to bring your premises back in shape.
When small gaps develop in the sealed unit, warm air from inside the property gets into the gap between the glass panes and causes condensation. Moisture forms as the heated air makes contact with the cooler exterior glass pane, with the result that you have a condensation problem. It may be time to replace your current windows, if this is occurring regularly.
Immediate improvements in the warmth and soundproofing will be seen if your home in Atherstone currently has windows with single glazing and you swap the for double glazed units. Upgrading to double glazed windows may also add more value to your home, which of course will be advantageous when you eventually opt to sell up and relocate.
DOUBLE GLAZING WINDOW STYLES AND MATERIALS
You can find a professional window installer in the Atherstone area who'll be able to match the style of window of your choice, and one that complements your property. From modern patio doors and casement windows to traditional sash windows for older properties, double glazed frames can be purchased in a wide range of materials, sizes and colours.
Hinged on one side, double glazing casement windows can be made to open outwards or inwards depending on the design. This permits easier cleaning and also provides ample airflow during the summer months. Casement windows can also be arranged into a tilt and turn design for added security. The addition of a supplementary hinge allows tilt and turn windows to open to a limited degree. Because they can be locked into position when partly open to allow for a cool breeze to enter the room, the security is improved.
There are also available options for double glazed sash windows for a more traditional appearance to complement a period house in Atherstone. These are available in both single hung and double hung versions, where either one or both panes can slide. During the past sash windows were not known for their energy efficiency, but contemporary double glazed designs have lessened this issue and nowadays there is pretty much nothing between sash windows and casement windows when it comes to thermal losses.
Bay windows look awesome and can bring a sense of space to a room. If your home in Atherstone already has bay windows, they can fairly easily be replaced with double glazed equivalents. The huge amount of light that it allows into a room, is the main benefit of a bay window, and it's an ideal place to have a window seat installed if you have a deep sill on the interior side.
Modern double glazed frames can be made in pretty much any colour you desire by using uPVC materials. You can also have timber frames for a classic feel, or aluminium frames for a more contemporary look. Easily coloured to blend in with your home, aluminium units no longer have to be a grey, dull and bland like they were in the 70's and 80's.

This is proof of the standard of the glass and the frame and the CE mark should be visible on the inside of the sealed glass unit and on the frame. All windows and doors made in Great Britain and the EU, must display the CE logo. Make sure your double glazing specialist in Atherstone is using CE approved materials for manufacturing it's windows, or else they might be made to less rigorous standards and with inferior materials and components.
