Double Glazing Barnet

Barnet Double Glazed Windows & Doors

Double Glazing Barnet Greater London (EN4): Installing double glazing can help to reduce noise, boost security and enhance the energy efficiency of your Barnet home. Double glazing refers to the method of making the window using twin panes of glass with a gas filled medium, usually argon, between them. Acting like an insulating material, this inert gas provides tremendous sound proofing and thermal qualities for any home.

If you already have older style double glazed windows in your home in Barnet but are faced with issues, like condensation between the panels or draughts, it might be time to think about upgrading your windows.

Double Glazing Barnet Greater London (EN4)

Condensation is caused by a hole developing in the seal around the glass and enabling warm air from inside the property to enter the space between the window panes. As the heated air makes contact with the cooler exterior glass pane, moisture is formed, with condensation as the result. If this is a regular occurrence, particularly during the winter months, you could either have the sealed unit replaced, or get replacement windows.

Changing to double glazed windows will see immediate improvements in the warmth and insulation from outside sounds, if your property in Barnet currently has windows with single glazing. The upgrade to double glazing may also help to improve the value of your property when you elect to sell.


To find double glazed windows that satisfy your choice of style and match your home, you should use a competent double glazing fitter in the Barnet area. Double glazing frames can be found in a variety of materials, colours and sizes, to suit contemporary patio doors and casement windows to period sash windows for older houses.

Opening outwards or inwards, double glazed casement windows are hinged on one side only. This gives ample airflow in the summer and allows for easier cleaning. They're also available in a tilt and turn arrangement which adds an additional degree of security where essential. Enabling them to be opened a small amount, tilt and turn windows have an additional hinge. Because they can be locked in position when partially open to allow for cool air to flow into the room, the security is enhanced.

There are also options available for double glazed sash windows for a more traditional look that are suitable for a period house in Barnet. These can be single hung, where only one sash is moveable, or double hung, where both sashes can be slid open. In past times sash windows weren't known for being energy efficient, but modern double glazing models have alleviated this problem and today there's virtually nothing between sash and casement windows with respect to thermal losses.

An alternative might be a bay window, which will look amazing and help to bring a feeling of space to even the most modest of rooms. If your Barnet home has a bay window already, replacing it with an equivalent double glazed unit shouldn't be too much of an issue. The benefit of a bay window is the amount of light it allows into a room, and if you've got a sill that is sufficiently deep on the inside, it makes for a perfect place to install a window seat.

Today's double glazed units can be produced in virtually any colour you desire with the use of uPVC materials. For a more contemporary feel you could opt for aluminium, or for that traditional look - wooden frames units. Readily coloured to match your property, aluminium windows no longer have to be a bland, dull and grey like they used to be.

All double glazed windows fitted today should display the CE approval mark. This proves the standard of the frame and the glass and the CE mark should be visible on the inside of the sealed glass unit and on the frame. For all doors and windows made in the United Kingdom and the EU, the CE logo is a necessity. If CE approved materials aren't used by your double glazing specialist in Barnet, they could be using inferior components and making their windows and doors using less rigorous specifications. It is best to always demand that the company only uses products that come with a CE approval and are backed by a warranty or guarantee.

Detailed measurements of your window and door frames will be obtained by a salesperson, so you'll be given an exact price for the work. Remember, if you are having your entire house in Barnet double glazed, there might be a little room for negotiation on price.

Depending on your frame type, the style of window, the opening options and the number of windows you need, this may take anywhere from several days to a few weeks.

A dependable double glazing specialist will be able to advise you on any local restrictions and will likely have already undertaken work in the area, and should know the legal requirements and necessities.
