Double Glazing Heywood Greater Manchester (OL10): Double glazed windows can improve security, reduce noise levels and increase your home's energy efficiency. These windows are produced using 2 panes of glass with a gas layer, usually argon, trapped between them, hence the term 'double glazing'. Because it behaves like insulation, this inert gas provides a property or home with excellent sound proofing and thermal qualities.
The time might have come to look at upgrading your windows, if you already have older style double glazing in your home in Heywood but have been having issues, such as draughts or condensation between the panes.
When small gaps appear in the seal around the glass, warm air from inside the home enters into the gap between the glass panes and causes condensation. Moisture forms as the warm air makes contact with the colder outside glass pane, which means that you have a condensation issue. If this is a regular occurrence, especially during the winter months, you can either replace the sealed unit, or get replacement windows.
Immediate improvements in the warmth and soundproofing will be experienced if your home in Heywood currently has single glazed windows and you upgrade them to double glazed windows. Upgrading to double glazed windows could also add more value to your home, which of course will be an advantage should you eventually elect to sell up and move.
DOUBLE GLAZING WINDOW STYLES AND MATERIALS
To obtain double glazed windows that match your choice of style and complement your property, you can hire a professional double glazing fitter in the Heywood area. From traditional sash windows for older properties, to modern patio doors and casement windows, double glazing frames can be found in a wide selection 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 can provide ample airflow during the summertime. If security is crucial to you, casement windows also come in a tilt and turn layout. The addition of a supplementary hinge allows tilt and turn double glazed windows to be opened to a limited degree. As they can be locked firmly in place when partly open to allow for cool air to flow into the room, the security is enhanced.
To suit a period property in Heywood, there are also available options for double glazed sash windows with a traditional look. These are made in both single hung and double hung models, where either one or both panes can slide. The sash windows of yesteryear had a reputation for poor standard of energy efficiency, but this issue has been largely lessened with modern day double glazed models, and with respect to thermal loss, there is hardly any difference between casement and sash windows these days.
Bay windows look great and can bring a feeling of space to a room. If you have an existing bay window it's possible to change it for a double glazed equivalent to keep the style. The huge amount of light that it allows into a room, is the main benefit of a bay window, and it's a great place to have a window seat installed if you've got a deep sill on the inside.
Today's double glazed frames can be manufactured in almost any colour with the use of uPVC materials. It is also possible to have timber frames for a classic look, or aluminium for a more modern feel. Aluminium units no longer have to be a grey, dull and rather bland looking frame for your windows, and can readily be coloured to suit your home.
All double glazing fitted in Heywood today must come with a CE approval mark. This mark should be visible on the inside of the sealed glass unit and on the frame, and is proof of the standard of both the glass and the frame itself. For all windows and doors made in Great Britain and the EU, the CE logo is a requirement. If your Heywood double glazing firm does not use CE approved materials they could be made using less stringent standards of production and poor quality materials. It is always best to demand only using double glazing that comes with CE approval and is backed by a warranty.
INSTALLATION OF REPLACEMENT DOUBLE GLAZING IN HEYWOOD
An excellent starting place when looking for a decent double glazing firm in Heywood is to ask family or friends for recommendations. Word of mouth testimonials can often provide a perception of how a company works and can be very helpful when looking for companies to provide you with a quote. When getting a price quote for double glazing in Heywood, try to get in touch with at least three different firms. An experienced double glazing installer will provide a free, no obligation quotation in order to help you pick the ideal solution for your new windows and doors. So that you are given an accurate price for the work, a saleperson will take precise measurements of the door and window frames that you're replacing. Remember, there may well be room for negotiation, if you're having your entire house in Heywood double glazed.
When you are happy with a price you've been quoted, and have made a decision on which company in Heywood to use, your new double glazed windows and doors will be made-to-measure at the factory. This step can take anything from several days to a few weeks subject to your frame type, the opening options, the number of doors and windows you require and the style of window. An installation time frame will then be scheduled between you and the company, which must include a provision for planning permission applications where necessary.
You may need to apply for planning permission if your house is listed, is in a conservation area, has a restrictive covenant or is in an area such as the boundaries of a National Park. Having already completed work in the Heywood area, a reputable double glazing company will know the legal requirements and necessities, and will be happy to advise you of any local restrictions.
Your double glazing installation time will depend on how many windows are involved. A regular modern double glazed window can be installed in under 3 hours. Included in this time, is removing the old window and squaring up the opening for the new window unit to sit in. With minimal disruption to you, a typical house in Heywood can be finished in a couple of days.
DOUBLE GLAZING ACCREDITATIONS
Any double glazing company in Heywood worth your consideration should be a member of the Glass and Glazing Federation, the DGCOS (Double Glazing Conservatory Ombudsman Scheme), Trustmark, FENSA, or some other recognised trade association.
Membership of such trade bodies shows that the company is experienced, qualified and complies with the appropriate building regulations, but does not guarantee that nothing will go wrong during the installation of your double glazing.
If there is any disagreement between the two parties, these industry bodies offer some type of guarantee or compensation schemes, on top of company warranty, and provide impartial mediation where needed. It's always good to know that help is available when it's needed, although the majority of double glazing installations in Heywood are completed with no issues.
DOUBLE GLAZING AFTERCARE AND AFTER SALES SUPPORT

It's good advice to check this out beforehand to see if there's a free repair and callout period as part of their warranty.
