Double Glazing Norwich Norfolk (NR1): Double glazing can reduce noise, boost security and increase your home's energy efficiency. The term double glazing essentially relates to the method of making these windows using 2 panes of glass, with a gas layer trapped between them (usually argon). Because it behaves like insulation, this inert gas provides a home with tremendous sound proofing and thermal qualities.
The time might have come to think about replacing your windows, if you've already got older style double glazing in your home in Norwich but are living with problems, like condensation between the panes or draughts.
Condensation takes place when small gaps appear in the seal around the glass, and heated air from inside the property finds its way into the gap between the panes. As the heated air comes into contact with the colder external pane of glass, moisture is formed, with condensation being the result. If this is a regular occurrence, particularly in winter time, you could either have the sealed unit replaced, or get replacement double glazing.
If your Norwich property has single glazing, upgrading to double glazing will see immediate improvements in the warmth and insulation from outside noises. The upgrade to double glazed windows may also help to raise the value of your property when you opt to sell.
DOUBLE GLAZING WINDOW STYLES AND MATERIALS
You should be able to find an experienced window fitter in the Norwich area who will be able to match the style of window of your choice, and one that complements your property. Whether you're searching for period sash windows for an older property in Norwich, or contemporary patio doors and casement windows, double glazing frames can be found in a large selection of materials, sizes and colours to match your needs.
Opening outwards or inwards, double glazed casement windows are hinged on one side only. This allows for easier cleaning and also gives plenty of airflow during the summer months. If security is crucial to you, double glazed casement windows are also made of a tilt and turn layout. Enabling them to open a small amount, tilt and turn windows have an additional hinge. This adds more security as they can be locked in position when only partially open to enable cool air to flow into the room.
To complement an older or period home in Norwich, there are also options for double glazed sash windows with a traditional look. These can be double hung, where both sashes can be slid open, or single hung, where just one pane slides. During the past sash windows were not known for being energy efficient, but modern day double glazing designs have reduced this problem and today there is pretty much nothing between sash windows and casement windows with respect to thermal loss.
Helping to bring a feeling of space to a room, bay windows look amazing. If your home in Norwich already has a bay window, you could replace it with an equivalent double glazed unit. The amount of light that it allows into a room, is the good thing about a bay window, and it makes for a perfect place to fit a window seat if you have a deep sill on the interior side.
Due to the development uPVC materials, almost any colour you desire is possible in today's double glazing window frames. For a traditional look you can also have timber frames, or for a more contemporary feel even choose aluminium double glazing. Easily coloured to suit your property, aluminium units no longer have to be a bland, grey and dull as they were in the past.
All double glazed windows fitted today must display the CE approval mark. This CE mark verifies the standard of both the frame and the glass, and should be visible on the frame and on the inside of the sealed glass unit. The CE logo is a necessity for all windows and doors made in Britain and the EU. If CE approved materials aren't used by your Norwich double glazing company, they may be using substandard components and made using less rigorous specifications. It is best to always insist that the company only uses products that come with a CE approval and are backed by a guarantee.
