Crowthorne Double Glazed Windows & Doors

Double Glazing Crowthorne Berkshire (RG45): The installation of double glazing in your home in Crowthorne, will help enhance your home's energy efficiency, boost security and reduce noise. The term double glazing basically relates to the method of making these windows using twin panes of glass, with a gas layer trapped between them (usually argon). As it behaves like an insulating material, this inert gas provides a home or property with incredible thermal and sound proofing qualities.

If your home in Crowthorne is already fitted with older double glazed windows, and you're faced with issues such as condensation or draughts, it might be wise to now get some new replacement double glazing to get your premises back to 21st century standards.

Double Glazing Crowthorne Berkshire (RG45)

Condensation is caused by a hole occurring in the seal around the glass, permitting heated air from inside the property to get into the space between the glass panes. As the cooler exterior pane of glass comes into contact with the warmer air, moisture droplets form as condensation. If this is a regular occurrence, especially during the winter season, you can either replace the sealed unit, or get brand new double glazed windows.

If your Crowthorne property currently has windows with single glazing, the switch to double glazing will see an immediate improvement in the warmth and insulation from outside noises. Upgrading to double glazing could also add more value to your property, which will obviously be a benefit if you later decide to sell up.


To find windows that satisfy your choice of style and match your property, you can hire a competent double glazing fitter in the Crowthorne area. Double glazing units are available in a variety of colours, sizes and materials, to match period sash windows for older houses, to contemporary patio doors and casement windows.

Double glazing casement windows have hinges on one side and can be made to open outwards or inwards. This gives plenty of airflow in the warm summer months and allows for easier cleaning. For added security, casement windows can also come in a tilt and turn window. The addition of a supplementary hinge allows tilt and turn double glazed windows to be opened to a limited degree. This adds extra security as they can be locked firmly into position when only partly open to allow for cool air to enter the room.

For that classic look to suit a period house in Crowthorne, there are double glazing sash windows available. There are double hung designs where both panes can be moved, and single hung styles where only one pane slides. Sash windows were not known for their energy efficiency in past times, but nowadays there's very little between the thermal losses of casement and sash windows, as contemporary double glazing designs have reduced this problem.

Helping to bring a feeling of space to a room, bay windows look awesome. If your house in Crowthorne already has a bay window, it can fairly easily be replaced with an equivalent double glazed unit. 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 fit a window seat if you've got a deep sill on the interior side.

Double Glazing Quotes in Crowthorne Berkshire

Due to the development of modern uPVC materials, pretty much any colour you desire is possible in today's double glazed window frames. It's also possible to have wooden frames for a traditional look, or aluminium for a more modern feel. Readily coloured to match your home, aluminium windows no longer have to be a grey, bland and dull as they were in the past.

All double glazed windows installed today must come with a CE approval mark. This mark verifies the standard of both the frame and the glass, and should be visible on the frame itself and on the inside of the sealed glass unit. All windows and doors produced in Britain and the EU, must display the CE logo. If CE approved materials are not used by your Crowthorne double glazing company, they may be using poor quality components and making their doors and windows using less stringent specifications. Whilst they may be adequate for some uses, it is best to insist on only using double glazing that comes with CE approval and is backed by a guarantee.


A good place to start when searching for a double glazing firm in Crowthorne is to ask friends or neighbours for recommendations.

A free, no obligation quote will be provided by an established double glazing fitter, so that you are able to choose the best solution for your home. Detailed measurements of your door and window frames will be obtained by the salesperson, so that you'll receive a definitive price for the task. Remember, if you are having your entire home in Crowthorne double glazed, there might be a bit of room for negotiation on price.

When you settle on a company in Crowthorne and are happy with the price quoted, your brand new windows will be made-to-measure. Depending on the opening options, your frame type, the design of window and the amount of doors and windows you need, this may take anywhere from a few days to several weeks. An installation time frame will be scheduled between the company and you, which should include provision for getting planning permission where necessary.

You might need to apply for planning permission if your house has a restrictive covenant, is in a conservation area, is close to a National Park or is listed. Having previously conducted work in the Crowthorne area, a trustworthy double glazing company will know the legal requirements and necessities, and will be happy to advise you about any restrictions.

Your double glazing installation time will depend on how many doors and windows are involved. It usually takes approximately three hours to install a regular double glazed window unit. Taking out the old window is included in this time frame, as is squaring up the opening that the new window sits in. With the minimum of disruption to you, a normal home can be finished in a couple of days.


A trustworthy double glazing company should be a signed up member of at least one trade body or association such as the DGCOS (Double Glazing Conservatory Ombudsman Scheme), the Glass and Glazing Federation (GGF), Trustmark or FENSA to name a few.

Membership of such trade bodies shows that the company is qualified, experienced and complies with building regulations, but doesn't necessarily guarantee that nothing will go awry during your double glazing installation.

Together with any company warranty, these industry bodies also offer some form of compensation or guarantee schemes, to ensure that there is an independent mediation between the 2 parties if there is any conflict. While the vast majority of double glazing installations in Crowthorne are completed with no problems, it's good to know that if help is necessary, it's easily obtainable.


There may be questions or advice needed afterwards, even if work has gone smoothly with your window installation in Crowthorne. A good double glazing company in Crowthorne should offer a guarantee of up to 10 years on your new doors and windows, and also provide a troubleshooting and callout service in the event that anything goes wrong. To see whether there's a free repair and callout period as part of the guarantee, it's advisable to ask beforehand.

Installing Cat Flaps in Double Glazing

You might have pondered the possibility of fitting a cat flap in your double glazing, if you have a cat. This can be a brilliant way to give your cat the freedom to enter and leave the house as they please, without you having to continually open and shut the door.

However, it's important to be aware that installing a cat flap in double glazing isn't a DIY job. Specialist equipment and tools are needed for this complex procedure. If you're not experienced in this sort of work, it is best to hire a specialist cat flap installer.

How to install a cat flap in double glazing:

When choosing a cat flap, it is important to consider the size of your cat and the features you need. There are a variety of cat flaps available on the market, so you can choose one that is the best fit for your needs. For example, you may want a cat flap with a microchip reader or a lock.

Once you have chosen a cat flap, you need to contact a professional cat flap fitter. They'll come to your home to assess the situation and to measure the space where the cat flap will be installed. They will also be able to advise you on the best kind of cat flap for your needs.

To preserve the double glazing unit's integrity and ensure the cat flap's proper installation, the cat flap installer will order a new double glazing unit with a hole cut out for the cat flap.

The cat flap specialist will return to your home in Crowthorne to install the new double glazing unit once it has been delivered. This involves removing the old double glazing unit and installing the new one. The cat flap specialist then installs the cat flap in the hole cut into the double glazing unit, ensuring that the integrity of the unit is not compromised and that the cat flap is installed correctly.

Finally, the device fitter will test the device to make sure that it's working correctly. They will also show you how to use the device and how to adjust the settings. (47902 - Cat Flaps in Double Glazing)
