Double Glazing Newtownabbey Northern Ireland (BT36): Double glazed windows can improve security, reduce noise and enhance your home's energy efficiency. Double glazing refers to the way a window is made using twin panes of glass with a gas layer, normally argon, trapped between them. Acting as insulation, this inert gas delivers incredible thermal and sound proofing qualities for any property or home.
If your home in Newtownabbey already has older style double glazed windows installed, and you are dealing with problems such as draughts or condensation, it might be a wise idea to now get some new replacement double glazing to get your building up-to-date.
Condensation occurs when small gaps appear in the seal around the glass, and warm air from inside the home finds its way into the gap between the glass panes. As the warm air makes contact with the cooler external pane of glass, moisture is formed, with condensation being the result. If this is happening regularly, particularly during the winter season, you could either replace the sealed unit, or get replacement double glazing.
If your Newtownabbey home currently has single glazed windows, the switch to double glazing will see an immediate improvement in the warmth and soundproofing. Upgrading to double glazed windows may also help to boost you home's value when you elect to sell.
DOUBLE GLAZED WINDOW STYLES AND MATERIALS
By hiring a specialist double glazing installer in Newtownabbey, you should be able to get windows that both match the style of your choice and accentuate your property beautifully. From traditional sash windows for older homes, to modern patio doors and casement windows, double glazing units can be bought in a wide selection of sizes, materials and colours.
Double glazing casement windows have hinges on one side and can open inwards or outwards. This means that they are easily cleaned, and offer the possibility of adequate airflow during the summer season. They are also available in a tilt and turn set up which adds an added level of security where essential. Tilt and turn double glazed windows have an additional hinge to be able to open a small amount. Because they can be locked securely in position when partially open to allow for a cool breeze to enter the room, the security is much better.
For that classic look to suit a period house in Newtownabbey, there are double glazed sash windows available. These are made in both single hung and double hung styles, where either one or both panes can slide. The sash windows of the past had a reputation for poor energy efficiency, but this issue has for the most part been reduced with contemporary double glazing designs, and with regard to thermal losses, there is hardly any difference between sash and casement windows nowadays.
An alternative may be a bay window, which will look great and help to bring a sense of space to even the most modest of rooms. If your property in Newtownabbey already has bay windows, you could replace them with double glazed equivalents. The advantage of a bay window is the huge amount of light it lets into a room, and if you have a deep sill on the interior side, it makes for a perfect place to install a window seat.
Through the use of uPVC materials, today's double glazed window frames can be made in pretty much any colour. You could also have wooden frames for a traditional feel, or aluminium frames for a more modern effect. Modern aluminium frames can be coloured to blend in with your house and no longer have to be a bland, grey and rather dull looking frame for your double glazing.
All double glazed windows fitted today must display the CE approval mark. This is proof of the standard of the glass and of the frame and the mark should be plainly visible on the inside of the sealed glass panel and on the frame. The CE logo is a requirement for all doors and windows manufactured in Great Britain and within Europe. If CE approved materials are not used by your Newtownabbey double glazing specialist, they might be using cheaper components and making their windows and doors using less rigorous standards. Although these poorer quality products may be good enough in some situations, it is recommended that you demand guaranteed products with CE approval for your home in Newtownabbey.
