It may be time to look at upgrading your windows, if you've already got older double glazing in your house in Cowes but are experiencing issues, such as draughts or condensation between the panels.

Double Glazing Cowes Isle of Wight (PO31)

Condensation takes place when a small gap appears in the sealed unit, and warm air from inside the property gets into the space between the window panes. As the cooler external glass pane comes into contact with the heated air, moisture is formed as condensation. If this is a regular occurrence, especially during the winter, you can either replace the sealed unit, or get replacement windows.

If your Cowes home has single glazing, changing to double glazed units will see an immediate improvement in the warmth and soundproofing. You could also enhance the value of your home (if you decide to sell), by upgrading to double glazing.


To find double glazed windows that satisfy your choice of style and match your home, you should use a specialist double glazing installer in the Cowes area. From modern casement windows and patio doors to traditional sash windows for older houses, double glazing units can be bought in a wide array of sizes, materials and colours.

Having hinges on one side, double glazed casement windows can open inwards or outwards depending on the design. This means that they're easier to clean, and offer the possibility of ample airflow during the summer season. They're also available in a tilt and turn arrangement which adds another level of security where required. Tilt and turn double glazed windows have an additional hinge to be able to open a small amount. This adds extra security as they can be locked firmly in position when partially open to enable cool air to flow into the room.

There are also options available for double glazed sash windows with a more traditional look to complement a period home in Cowes. These can be found in both single hung and double hung versions, where either one or both sashes are able to be slid open. In times past sash windows weren't known for their energy efficiency, but modern day double glazing models have alleviated this issue and nowadays there is very little between sash and casement windows when it comes to thermal loss.

An alternative might be a bay window, which will look great and help to bring a sense of space to even the smallest of rooms.
