Double Glazing Hinckley

Hinckley Double Glazed Windows & Doors

Double Glazing Hinckley Leicestershire (LE10): The installation of double glazing in your home in Hinckley, can help to increase your home's energy efficiency, improve security and reduce noise levels. The term double glazing actually relates to the method of making these windows using twin panes of glass, with a gas filled layer trapped between them (usually argon). Acting like insulation, this inert gas provides tremendous sound proofing and thermal qualities for any home or property.

The time might have come to consider swapping your windows, if you already have older style double glazed windows in your property in Hinckley but are dealing with issues, such as draughts or condensation between the panels.

Double Glazing Hinckley Leicestershire (LE10)

Condensation is caused by a gap appearing in the seal around the glass and allowing warm air from inside the property to enter the space between the panes. As the cooler external glass pane makes contact with the warmer air, moisture is formed as condensation. If this happens fairly often it is probably time to change your current windows.

Upgrading to double glazed windows will result in immediate improvements in the warmth and insulation from outside noises, if your house in Hinckley currently has windows with single glazing. You may also increase the value of your property (if you decide to sell), by making the upgrade to double glazing.


You should be able to find a professional installer in the Hinckley area who'll be able to source windows to match the style of your choice, and that perfectly complement your home. From period sash windows for older houses, to modern patio doors and casement windows, double glazing units can be bought in a wide array of materials, colours and sizes.

Opening outwards or inwards, double glazed casement windows are hinged on one side only. This means that they are easily cleaned, and offer the possibility of adequate airflow during the summertime. If security is important to you, casement windows also come in a tilt and turn style. Tilt and turn windows have an extra hinge to be able to open slightly. Because they can be locked firmly in place when only partially open to allow for a fresh breeze to enter the room, the security is much better.

Double glazed sash windows with a more tradition appearance are available to match older or period homes in Hinckley. There are single hung designs where just one pane can be slid open, and double hung styles, where both of the panes slide. The sash windows of yesteryear were known for their poor standard of energy efficiency, however this problem has been largely lessened with contemporary double glazed designs, and with regard to thermal losses, there's hardly any difference between casement and sash windows today.

Helping to bring a feeling of space to a room, bay windows look wonderful. If your property in Hinckley already has a bay window, you could replace it with an equivalent double glazed unit. The quantity of light that it allows into a room, is the main advantage of a bay window, and it's an ideal place to fit a window seat if you've got a deep sill on the interior side.

Double Glazing Quotes in Hinckley Leicestershire

Today's double glazing units can be produced in almost any colour through the use of uPVC materials. For a classic look you can also have wooden frames, or for a more contemporary feel even go with aluminium frames. Modern day aluminium windows can be coloured to match your house and no longer have to be a grey, dull and rather bland looking frame for your double glazing.

All double glazing installed today must come with a CE approval mark. This mark should be plainly visible inside the sealed glass unit and on the frame, and verifies the standard of both the frame and the glass. The CE logo is a requirement for all windows and doors manufactured in the UK and within Europe. If CE approved materials aren't used by your Hinckley double glazing firm, they could be using poor quality components and made using less rigorous standards. It is always best to insist on only using products that come with a CE approval and are backed up with a guarantee or warranty.


For your new windows and doors in Hinckley you can ask friends or acquaintances to recommend local double glazing companies.

Once you decide on a company in Hinckley and are pleased with the quoted price, your new windows will be custom-made to your measurements. Subject to your frame type, the style of window, the amount of windows and doors you require and the opening options, this could take anything from several days to a few weeks. The time frame for installation can then be arranged and will include the need for planning permission applications if required.

Planning permission may be required if your house is close to a National Park, has a restrictive covenant, is in a conservation area or is a listed building. Having previously completed work in the Hinckley area, a dependable double glazing firm will know the legal requirements and necessities, and will be able to advise you about any local restrictions.

The time required to install your double glazing will obviously be determined by exactly how many windows you've ordered. An experienced installer will usually fit a modern double glazed window frame in under three hours. This time will also include removing the pre-existing window, and carefully preparing the space to take the new window. A typical house can be completed within a couple of days with the minimum of disruption to you.

Membership of such associations signifies that the company is qualified, experienced and complies with the appropriate building regulations, but doesn't necessarily guarantee that nothing will go awry during the installation of your double glazing.

These trade organisations also offer some type of compensation or guarantee schemes, in addition to the company guarantee, to make certain that if there is any conflict there is an independent mediation between the two parties. Whilst the vast majority of double glazing projects in Hinckley are completed with no problems, it's great to know that if help is necessary, it's easily obtainable.


Even when the installation has gone without any issues, advice may be needed afterwards, and questions may need to be asked.
