Birkenhead Double Glazed Windows & Doors

Double Glazing Birkenhead Merseyside (CH41): Double glazed windows can reduce noise levels, increase your home's energy efficiency and improve security. Double glazing refers to the method of making the window using a double layer of glass with a gas layer, typically argon, trapped between them. Because it behaves like insulation, this inert gas provides a home or property with outstanding thermal and sound proofing qualities.

The time may have come to look at upgrading your windows, if you've already got older double glazing in your property in Birkenhead but are experiencing problems, such as draughts or condensation between the panels.

Double Glazing Birkenhead Merseyside (CH41)

Condensation in the space between the glass panes occurs when holes appear in the sealed unit and heated air enters from inside the property. As the warmer air comes into contact with the colder exterior pane of glass, moisture is formed, with condensation being the result. If this happens regularly the time may have come to change your current windows.

If your Birkenhead property currently has single glazed windows, upgrading to double glazing will see immediate improvements in the warmth and soundproofing. Upgrading to double glazed windows may also add more value to your property, which of course will be advantageous if you eventually elect to sell up and relocate.


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

Opening inwards or outwards, double glazed casement windows are hinged on one side only. This delivers ample airflow in the summer and enables easier cleaning. Casement windows can also be arranged into a tilt and turn design for extra security. The addition of a supplementary hinge permits tilt and turn double glazed windows to open to a limited degree. As they can be locked securely in position when only partly open to allow for a cool breeze to flow into the room, the security is improved.

There are also available options for double glazed sash windows for a more traditional appearance that are suitable for a period house in Birkenhead. There are single hung styles where just one pane slides, and double hung models, where both panes slide. During the past sash windows were not noted for being energy efficient, but modern double glazed designs have alleviated this issue and now there is practically nothing between sash windows and casement windows with respect to thermal loss.

An alternative may be a bay window, which will look awesome and help to bring a sense of space to even the smallest of rooms. If your Birkenhead property has a bay window already, exchanging it for a double glazed equivalent shouldn't be a problem. Bay windows bring plenty of character and style to a home, but the main advantage is the amount of light that they allow to flood into a room. Another plus point is having the opportunity to install a useful window seat, if a deep sill exists on the interior side of the window.

Modern day double glazing units can be manufactured in virtually any colour you desire through the use of uPVC materials. For a classic look you could also have timber frames, or for that contemporary feel even opt for aluminium double glazing. Aluminium units no longer have to be a grey, dull and bland looking frame for your windows, and can readily be coloured to blend in with your property.

All new double glazing that is fitted in homes in Birkenhead should display the CE approval mark. This is proof of the standard of the frame and of the glass and the CE mark should be plainly visible on the inside of the sealed glass unit and on the frame.

If your Birkenhead double glazing company does not use CE approved materials they could possibly be manufactured using less rigorous standards of production and cheaper materials. While they may be adequate for many uses, it's better to insist on only using double glazed frames that come with CE approval and are backed by a warranty.
