Double Glazing Ellesmere Port

Ellesmere Port Double Glazed Windows & Doors

Double Glazing Ellesmere Port Cheshire (CH65): Double glazed windows can improve security, reduce noise and increase your home's energy efficiency. These windows are made using twin panes of glass with a gas layer, normally argon, trapped between them, hence the expression 'double glazing'. As it acts like insulation, this gas provides a property or home with effective thermal and sound proofing qualities.

If you have already got older style double glazing in your house in Ellesmere Port but are dealing with problems, like draughts or condensation between the glass panes, it might be time to consider swapping your windows.

Double Glazing Ellesmere Port Cheshire (CH65)

Condensation develops when a small gap appears in the seal around the glass, and heated air from inside the house is allowed to enter the gap between the glass panes. As the heated air makes contact with the cooler exterior glass pane, moisture forms, with condensation as the result. If this is happening frequently, especially during the wintertime, you could either have the sealed unit replaced, or get brand new windows.

An immediate improvement in the warmth and insulation from outside sounds will be noticed if your home in Ellesmere Port currently has single glazing and you switch to double glazed units. Upgrading to double glazed windows could also help to raise your property's value should you decide to sell.


You should be able to find an experienced window fitter in the Ellesmere Port area who'll be able to source windows to match the style of your choice, and that perfectly complement your home.

Double glazing casement windows have hinges on one side and can be made to open outwards or inwards. This enables easier cleaning and also gives a good amount of airflow during the summer. They are also available in a tilt and turn set up which adds an added level of security where necessary. The addition of a supplementary hinge permits tilt and turn windows to open to a limited degree. This adds more security as they can be locked securely in position when partly open to allow for cool air to flow into the room.

There are also options available for double glazed sash windows for a more traditional look to complement a period house in Ellesmere Port. These are made in both single hung and double hung versions, where either one or both panes are able to move. During the past sash windows weren't known for their energy efficiency, but modern double glazing designs have alleviated this problem and now there is virtually nothing between sash and casement windows with regards to thermal losses.

An alternative might be a bay window, which looks fantastic and helps to bring a feeling of space to even the most modest of rooms. If your home in Ellesmere Port already has a bay window, it should not be too difficult to replace it with an equivalent double glazed unit. Bay windows bring lots of style and character to a property, however the main benefit is the amount of light that they allow to flood into a room. Another plus point is having the opportunity to install a window seat, if a deep sill exists on the inside of the window.

Double Glazing Quotes in Ellesmere Port Cheshire

Due to the development of modern uPVC materials, practically any colour is possible in today's double glazing frames. It's also possible to have timber frames for a classic look, or aluminium double glazing for a more modern feel. Aluminium frames no longer have to be a dull, grey and bland looking frame for your windows, and can readily be coloured to match your house.

You should be able to spot the CE mark displayed on any new double glazed windows that are installed in Ellesmere Port homes. This mark should be plainly visible on the inside of the sealed glass unit and on the frame, and verifies the standard of both the glass and the frame itself. The CE logo is a necessary requirement for all doors and windows made in Great Britain and the EU. If CE approved materials aren't used by your Ellesmere Port double glazing firm, they may be using substandard components and made using less stringent specifications. Even though these poorer quality products may be adequate in some circumstances, you should insist on guaranteed double glazing with CE approval for your home in Ellesmere Port.

Installing Cat Flaps in Double Glazing

In case you have a cat, you might have considered putting in a cat flap in your double glazing. This is a great way to let your cat come and go as they wish, without you having to keep opening and closing the door repeatedly.

It's important to note, however, that installing a cat flap in double glazing isn't a do-it-yourself task. Specialised tools and equipment are required for this complex procedure. If you are not experienced in this kind of work, it is best to hire a professional cat flap fitter.

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 pick 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 a cat flap has been chosen, a specialist cat flap installer should be contacted. They will visit your home to assess the situation and measure the space for the cat flap installation. They can also advise you on the best style of cat flap for your needs.

The cat flap installer will order a new double-glazed unit with a pre-cut hole for the cat flap, ensuring the cat flap's proper installation and maintaining the unit's integrity.

After the new double-glazed unit is delivered, the cat flap fitter will return to your home in Ellesmere Port to install it. This process involves removing the old double-glazed unit and installing the new one. The cat flap specialist then installs the cat flap in the hole cut into the double glazing unit.
