Double Glazing Portishead Somerset (BS20): Double glazed windows can enhance your home's energy efficiency, reduce noise levels and improve security. Double glazing describes the way a window is made using two panes of glass with a gas filled layer, typically argon, trapped between them. This inert gas acts as an insulating material and provides effective thermal and sound proofing qualities for any home or property in Portishead.
It might be time to think about replacing your windows, if you already have older double glazed windows in your house in Portishead but have been having problems, such as condensation between the panes or draughts.
Condensation is caused by a small hole occurring in the sealed unit and permitting warmer air from inside the house to enter the space between the window panes. Moisture forms as the heated air comes into contact with the cooler external pane of glass, with the result that you've got a condensation problem. If this is a regular occurrence, particularly during the winter season, you could either replace the sealed unit, or get brand new double glazing.
An immediate improvement in the warmth and soundproofing will be seen if your property in Portishead currently has single glazed windows and you swap the for double glazed windows. Upgrading to double glazing can also add extra value to your property, which will obviously be advantageous should you later opt to sell up and relocate.
DOUBLE GLAZED WINDOW MATERIALS AND STYLES
You can find a competent installer in the Portishead area who will be able to source windows to match the style of your choice, and that perfectly complement your property. From modern patio doors and casement windows to period sash windows for older homes, double glazing units are available in a whole host of colours, sizes and materials.
Opening outwards or inwards, double glazing casement windows are hinged on one side only. This permits easier cleaning and also delivers plenty of airflow during the summer months. If security is crucial to you, double glazed casement windows can also be purchased in a tilt and turn design. Tilt and turn double glazed windows have an additional hinge to be able to open a small amount. Increased security results, because to allow a fresh breeze to flow into the room, they can be locked firmly in position when partly open.
For that classic look to complement a period home in Portishead, there are double glazing sash windows on the market. These can be double hung, where both of the sashes can be opened, or single hung, where only one pane is moveable. In the past sash windows were not noted for being energy efficient, but modern day double glazing models have alleviated this issue and now there is hardly any difference between sash windows and casement windows in terms of thermal losses.
Bay windows look awesome and can bring a sense of space to a room. If your property in Portishead already has a bay window, it should not be too difficult to replace it with a double glazed equivalent. The amount of light that it lets into a room, is the main advantage of a bay window, and it's a great place to fit a window seat if you have a deep sill on the inside.
Modern double glazed units can be manufactured in almost any colour through the use of uPVC materials. You could also have timber frames for a traditional feel, or aluminium double glazing for a somewhat more contemporary effect. Readily coloured to blend in with your property, aluminium units no longer have to be a dull, bland and grey like they were in the 70's and 80's.
All new double glazed windows must display the CE approval mark. This CE mark verifies the standard of both the frame and the glass, and should be plainly visible on the frame itself and inside the sealed glass panel. The CE logo is a necessary requirement for all doors and windows produced in Britain and the EU. Make certain that your double glazing specialist in Portishead is using CE approved materials in the manufacture of it's doors and windows, otherwise they might be made to less stringent standards and with inferior components and materials. Even though these poorer quality frames may be OK in some instances, you should always insist on guaranteed products with CE approval for your property in Portishead.
