If you have already got older style double glazing in your property in Colne but are faced with problems, such as condensation between the glass panes or draughts, the time might have come to consider replacing your windows.

Condensation in the gap between the panes occurs when holes develop in the seal around the glass and warm air enters from inside the property. As the cooler exterior pane of glass makes contact with the warm air, moisture is formed as condensation. It's time to replace your current windows, if this is occurring regularly.

If your Colne property currently has single glazing, the switch to double glazing will see immediate improvements in the warmth and insulation from outside sounds. Making the upgrade to double glazed windows could also help to boost the value of your property should you decide to sell.


You should be able to find an experienced installer in the Colne area who will be able to source windows to match the style of your choice, and that perfectly complement your home.

Opening inwards or outwards, double glazing casement windows are hinged on one side only. This gives a good amount of airflow in the summertime and permits easier cleaning. Tilt and turn casement windows can also be purchased for use when security is important. The addition of a supplementary hinge enables tilt and turn windows to open to a limited degree. Increased security results, because to let a cool breeze to enter the room, they can be locked firmly into position when only partially open.

There are also available options for double glazing sash windows for a more traditional look that are suitable for a period home in Colne. There are double hung versions where both panes are moveable, and single hung styles where just one sash can be slid open. Sash windows weren't known for their energy efficiency in the past, but today there is very little between the thermal loss of sash and casement windows, as modern double glazing designs have reduced this problem.

Another option may be a bay window, which looks awesome and helps to bring a feeling of space to even the most modest of rooms. If your Colne home has an existing bay window, replacing it with an equivalent double glazed frame should not be too much of a problem. Bay windows bring plenty of character and style to a home, but the main advantage is the quantity of light that they allow to flood into a room. An extra benefit is having the opportunity to put in a window seat, if a deep sill exists on the interior side of the window.

With the use of uPVC materials, today's double glazing units can be made in almost any colour. For a more contemporary feel you could decide on aluminium, or for that traditional look - timber frames units.

If your double glazing firm in Colne doesn't use CE approved materials they might be made using less stringent production standards and poor quality materials. Whilst these may be adequate for many uses, it's best to insist on only using double glazing that comes with CE approval and is backed by a warranty.
