If your home in Formby is already fitted with older style double glazed windows, and you're faced with issues such as draughts or condensation between the panes, it might be wise to now get new replacement double glazing to get your building up-to-date.

Double Glazing Formby Merseyside (L37)

Condensation develops when a small gap appears in the seal around the glass, and heated air from inside the house enters into the gap between the glass panes. As the colder exterior glass pane makes contact with the warmer air, moisture droplets form as condensation. If this is happening frequently, especially during the winter season, you can either have the sealed unit replaced, or get replacement windows.

If your Formby property has single glazed windows, the switch to double glazed units will see an immediate improvement in the warmth and soundproofing. Upgrading to double glazing could also add more value to your property, which of course will be a benefit if you eventually elect to sell up and move.


To find windows that satisfy your choice of style and match your property, you can hire an experienced double glazing fitter in the Formby area. Whether you are looking for modern patio doors and casement windows, or period sash windows for an older home in Formby, double glazed frames can be found in a whole host of sizes, materials and colours to match your needs.

Opening inwards or outwards, double glazed casement windows have hinges on one side. This gives a good amount of airflow in the summer months and enables easier cleaning. For additional security, casement windows can also be arranged into a tilt and turn design. The addition of an extra hinge enables tilt and turn double glazed windows to open to a limited degree. Improved security is the result, because to allow cool air to flow into the room, they can be locked in place when only partly open.

Double glazing sash windows with a more tradition appearance can be purchased to match older or period houses in Formby. There are single hung designs where just one sash slides, and double hung designs, where both sashes are moveable. In times past sash windows were not known for being energy efficient, but modern day double glazed designs have lessened this issue and nowadays there's practically nothing between casement windows and sash windows with regards to thermal losses.

Bay windows look fantastic and can bring a sense of space to a room. If your house in Formby has already got a bay window, it should not be too difficult to replace it with a double glazed equivalent. The advantage of a bay window is the huge amount of light it allows into a room, and if you've got a sill that is sufficiently deep on the inside, it makes for a perfect place to fit a window seat.
