Double Glazing Old Basing Hampshire (RG24): You can reduce noise, boost security and increase your home's energy efficiency by installing double glazing. These windows are produced using a double layer of glass with a gas layer, usually argon, trapped between them, hence the term 'double glazing'. This gas acts as an insulating material and delivers impressive thermal and sound proofing qualities for any home in Old Basing.
The time may have come to consider swapping your windows, if you've already got older double glazing in your home in Old Basing but are living with issues, like draughts or condensation between the panels.
Condensation is caused by a small hole developing in the seal around the glass and enabling warm air from inside the house to enter the space between the window panes. As the cooler outside glass pane makes contact with the heated air, moisture droplets form as condensation. If this happens regularly the time may have come to upgrade your existing windows.
If your Old Basing property currently has single glazed windows, upgrading to double glazed windows will see an immediate improvement in the warmth and insulation from outside noises. You could also enhance the value of your home (when you elect to sell), by upgrading to double glazed windows.
DOUBLE GLAZING WINDOW STYLES AND MATERIALS
You should be able to find a specialist window fitter in the Old Basing area who will be able to source windows to match the style of your choice, and that perfectly complement your property. Whether you're looking for traditional sash windows for an older property in Old Basing, or modern patio doors and casement windows, double glazed frames can be purchased in a wide range of materials, sizes and colours to fit your needs.
Opening inwards or outwards, double glazing casement windows are hinged on one side only. This delivers plenty of airflow in the summertime and allows for easier cleaning. For more security, casement windows can also be arranged into a tilt and turn design. Tilt and turn double glazed windows have an extra hinge to be able to open slightly. This adds more security as they can be locked securely in position when only partly open to allow for cool air to enter the room.
To suit an older or period house in Old Basing, there are also options for double glazed sash windows with a more traditional look. These are made in both single hung and double hung versions, where either one or both sashes are able to be slid open. The sash windows of yesteryear were renowned for their poor energy efficiency, but this problem has for the most part been lessened with modern day double glazing models, and with respect to thermal losses, there's very little between sash and casement windows today.
Helping to bring a sense of space to a room, bay windows look amazing. If your house in Old Basing already has bay windows, it should not be too difficult to replace them with double glazed equivalents. The good thing about a bay window is the amount of light it lets into a room, and if you've got a sill that is sufficiently deep on the interior side, it's an ideal place to fit a window seat.
With the use of uPVC materials, today's double glazing frames can be made in almost any colour. It's also possible to have wooden frames for a classic look, or aluminium frames for a more modern feel. Aluminium windows 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 modern double glazed windows that are fitted in homes in Old Basing must display the CE approval mark. This mark proves 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 produced in Britain and within Europe. Ensure that your Old Basing double glazing specialist is using CE approved materials for it's windows and doors, or else they might be made to less stringent standards and using cheaper components and materials. It is best to always demand that the company only uses double glazing that comes with CE approval and is backed up with a warranty or guarantee.
