East Kilbride Double Glazed Windows & Doors

Double Glazing East Kilbride Scotland (G74): You can reduce noise levels, improve security and enhance your home's energy efficiency through the installation of double glazing.

If you've already got older style double glazing in your home in East Kilbride but are faced with issues, like condensation between the panels or draughts, the time may have come to consider swapping your windows.

Double Glazing East Kilbride Scotland (G74)

Condensation is caused by a gap occurring in the seal around the glass and allowing warm air from inside the property to enter the space between the glass panes. Moisture forms as the warmer air comes into contact with the colder outside pane of glass, with the result that you've got a condensation problem. It's time to replace your current windows, if this problem occurs fairly often.

An immediate improvement in the warmth and insulation from outside noises will be experienced if your property in East Kilbride has single glazed windows and you swap the for double glazing. You may also raise the value of your home (if you choose to sell), by upgrading to double glazing.


To find double glazed windows that satisfy your choice of style and match your property, you should use a competent double glazing fitter in the East Kilbride area. Double glazed frames can be bought in a variety of colours, sizes and materials, to suit modern patio doors and casement windows to period sash windows for older properties.

Hinged on one side, double glazing casement windows can open outwards or inwards depending on their design. This means that they're easier to clean, and can provide ample airflow during the summer season. They are also available in a tilt and turn design which adds an added degree of security where needed. Tilt and turn double glazed windows have a supplementary hinge to be able to open slightly. Because they can be locked in position when only partly open to allow for cool air to enter the room, the security is enhanced.

For a more traditional look to complement a period home in East Kilbride, there are double glazing sash windows available. There are double hung versions where both panes can be moved, and single hung models where only one pane can be slid open. In the past sash windows weren't known for being energy efficient, but modern day double glazing designs have alleviated this problem and now there is pretty much nothing between casement and sash windows with regards to thermal loss.

Another alternative might be a bay window, which looks wonderful and helps to bring a feeling of space to even the most modest of rooms. If you've got an existing bay window it's possible to replace it with a double glazed equivalent to keep the style. The good thing about a bay window is the quantity of light it lets into a room, and if you have a deep sill on the inside, it makes for a perfect place to have a window seat installed.

Through the use of uPVC materials, modern double glazed units can be made in pretty much any colour. You could also have timber frames for a traditional feel, or aluminium for a more contemporary look. Aluminium frames no longer have to be a grey, dull and rather bland looking frame for your windows, and can readily be coloured to blend in with your home.

You must be able to spot the CE mark displayed on any new double glazing that is fitted in East Kilbride homes. This mark verifies the standard of both the frame and the glass, and should be plainly visible on the frame itself and inside the sealed glass unit. The CE logo is a necessity for all doors and windows made in the UK and within Europe. If your East Kilbride double glazing specialist doesn't use CE approved components they might be made using less stringent production standards and cheaper materials. Even though they might be good enough for certain uses, it is better to insist on only using double glazing that comes with CE approval and is backed by a guarantee.
