Double Glazing Lytham St Annes Lancashire (FY8): The installation of double glazing in your home in Lytham St Annes, can enhance your home's energy efficiency, boost security and reduce noise levels. Double glazing refers to the way a window is made using 2 panes of glass with a gas filled layer, normally argon, between them. Acting like an insulating material, this inert gas delivers incredible sound proofing and thermal qualities for any property.
The time might have come to consider updating your windows, if you already have older double glazing in your home in Lytham St Annes but have been dealing with problems, such as draughts or condensation between the panes.
When a small gap develops in the seal around the glass, warm air from inside the home can enter the space between the panes and causes condensation. As the cooler external pane of glass makes contact with the warm air, moisture is formed as condensation. If this is a regular occurrence, especially during the wintertime, you could either have the sealed unit replaced, or get brand new double glazing.
If your Lytham St Annes home has single glazed windows, the switch to double glazed units will see an immediate improvement in the warmth and soundproofing. Upgrading to double glazed windows may also add more value to your home, which will obviously be advantageous if you eventually choose to sell up.
DOUBLE GLAZED WINDOW MATERIALS AND STYLES
By hiring a competent double glazing fitter in Lytham St Annes, you will be able find double glazed windows that both match your choice of style and complement your property beautifully. From period sash windows for older properties, to contemporary patio doors and casement windows, double glazed frames can be found in a wide range of colours, sizes and materials.
Opening outwards or inwards, double glazed casement windows have hinges on one side. This provides plenty of airflow in the summer and allows for easier cleaning. They are also available in a tilt and turn set up which adds an extra level of security where needed. Tilt and turn windows have a supplementary hinge to be able to open a small amount. Increased security results, because to let cool air to flow into the room, they can be locked securely in place when only partially open.
To suit a period home in Lytham St Annes, there are also available options for double glazed sash windows with a traditional appearance. There are double hung versions where both sashes can be moved, and single hung designs where only one sash slides. Sash windows were not renowned for their energy efficiency in past times, but nowadays there is practically nothing between the thermal losses of sash and casement windows, as modern day double glazing designs have alleviated this issue.
Bay windows look awesome and can bring a sense 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 amount of light that it allows into a room, is the good thing about a bay window, and it's an ideal place to install a window seat if you've got a sill that is sufficiently deep on the inside.
Modern double glazed frames can be produced in virtually any colour you desire with the use of uPVC materials. For a traditional look you could also have wooden frames, or for that contemporary feel even pick aluminium double glazing. Aluminium frames no longer have to be a dull, grey and bland looking frame for your double glazing, and can readily be coloured to match your property.
All double glazing installed today should display the CE approval mark. This verifies the standard of the frame and the glass and the mark should be plainly visible inside the sealed glass panel and on the frame. The CE logo is a necessity for all doors and windows produced in the British Isles and the EU. If your Lytham St Annes double glazing company doesn't use CE approved materials they might be manufactured using less rigorous production standards and low quality materials. Even though they might be acceptable for certain uses, it is better to demand only using double glazed frames that come with CE approval and are backed by a guarantee.
