Double Glazing Oldbury West Midlands (B68)

Condensation occurs in the space between the window panes when a a small gap develops in the sealed unit and warm air enters from inside the property. As the warm air makes contact with the cooler outside glass pane, moisture is formed, with condensation being the result. It may be time to replace your existing windows, if this problem occurs frequently.

An immediate improvement in the warmth and insulation from outside noises will be experienced if your property in Oldbury currently has single glazing and you switch to double glazed windows. The upgrade to double glazing can also help to improve the value of your home when you decide to sell.

Double glazing casement windows have hinges on one side and can open inwards or outwards. This allows for easier cleaning and also delivers a good amount of airflow during the summer. If security is crucial to you, double glazed casement windows can also be purchased in a tilt and turn layout. Allowing them to open slightly, tilt and turn windows have a supplementary hinge. This adds more security as they can be locked firmly into position when only partly open to enable cool air to flow into the room.

To suit an older or period house in Oldbury, you can also buy double glazing sash windows with a traditional appearance. There are single hung styles where just one sash slides, and double hung versions, where both panes are moveable. The sash windows of yesteryear were known for their poor energy efficiency, however this problem has for the most part been alleviated with contemporary double glazed models, and when it comes to thermal losses, there is very little difference between sash and casement windows nowadays.

Helping to bring a sense of space to a room, bay windows look wonderful. If you have an existing bay window it's possible to change it for an equivalent double glazed frame to keep the style. The quantity of light that it allows into a room, is the main advantage of a bay window, and it's a great place to fit a window seat if you've got a sill that is sufficiently deep on the inside.
