Double Glazing Dursley Gloucestershire (GL11): Putting double glazing into your home in Dursley, will reduce noise levels, boost security and enhance your home's energy efficiency. These windows are produced using two panes of glass with a gas filled medium, usually argon, trapped between them, thus the term 'double glazing'. Acting like an insulating material, this inert gas delivers incredible thermal and sound proofing qualities for any property.
If you've already got older double glazing in your property in Dursley but are experiencing problems, like condensation between the panels or draughts, it may be time to consider upgrading your windows.
When a small gap appears in the sealed unit, warmer air from inside the property gets into the gap between the window panes and causes condensation. As the colder outside pane of glass comes into contact with the warmer air, moisture droplets form as condensation. If this is a regular occurrence, particularly in winter time, you can either have the sealed unit replaced, or get replacement double glazed windows.
If your Dursley home currently has windows with single glazing, upgrading to double glazing will see an immediate improvement in the warmth and soundproofing. Upgrading to double glazing may also help to boost the value of your home when you elect to sell.
DOUBLE GLAZED WINDOW MATERIALS AND STYLES
By using a competent double glazing fitter in Dursley, you'll be able obtain double glazed windows that both match the style of your choice and accentuate your property perfectly. From modern patio doors and casement windows to period sash windows for older properties, double glazing frames can be bought in a whole host of materials, colours and sizes.
Opening inwards or outwards, double glazing casement windows are hinged on one side only. This means that they are easier to clean, and offer the possibility of adequate airflow during the summertime. They're also available in a tilt and turn arrangement which adds an extra degree of security where necessary. The addition of a supplementary hinge enables tilt and turn windows to open to a limited degree. Because they can be locked in position when only partly open to allow for a cool breeze to enter the room, the security is improved.
To suit an older or period house in Dursley, there are also available options for double glazed sash windows with a more traditional look. These can be single hung, where only one pane is moveable, or double hung, where both of the panes can be slid open. Sash windows were not renowned for their energy efficiency in the past, but today there is virtually nothing between the thermal losses of casement and sash windows, as modern double glazed designs have alleviated this problem.
