Double Glazing Redbourn Hertfordshire (AL3): Putting in double glazing will help to reduce noise levels, boost security and increase the energy efficiency of your Redbourn home.

Acting like an insulating material, this inert gas provides outstanding thermal and sound proofing qualities for any home or property.

If you have already got older style double glazed windows in your property in Redbourn but are living with problems, such as draughts or condensation between the glass panes, the time might have come to think about swapping your windows.

Double Glazing Redbourn Hertfordshire (AL3)

Condensation happens when a small gap appears in the seal around the glass, and heated air from inside the house finds its way into the gap between the glass panes. Moisture forms as the warm air comes into contact with the cooler exterior glass pane, which means that you've got a condensation problem. It's time to change your existing windows, if this is happening regularly.

An immediate improvement in the warmth and soundproofing will be seen if your property in Redbourn has windows with single glazing and you upgrade them to double glazed windows. Upgrading to double glazed windows may also add extra value to your home, which will obviously be beneficial when you later elect to sell up and move.


You should be able to find a specialist installer in the Redbourn area who will be able to source windows to match the style of your choice, and that perfectly complement your property. Double glazing units can be purchased in a wide range of colours, sizes and materials, to match period sash windows for older properties, to modern patio doors and casement windows.

Double glazed casement windows are hinged to one side and can open inwards or outwards. This means they are easily cleaned, and can provide a good amount of airflow during the summertime. For extra security, casement windows can also come in a tilt and turn design. The addition of an extra hinge allows tilt and turn windows to open to a limited degree. As they can be locked securely in place when partly open to allow for cool air to enter the room, the security is increased.

There are also options available for double glazed sash windows for a more traditional appearance to complement a period home in Redbourn. These are available in both single hung and double hung versions, where either one or both sashes can be slid open. Sash windows weren't noted for their energy efficiency in times past, but these days there is virtually nothing between the thermal loss of casement and sash windows, as modern day double glazed designs have lessened this problem.

Bay windows look wonderful and can bring a feeling of space to a room. If your home in Redbourn has already got bay windows, you could replace them with double glazed equivalents. Bay windows bring plenty of character and style to a home, but the main advantage is the amount of light that they allow into a room. Another plus point is being able to put in a window seat, if a deep sill exists on the inside of the window.

By using uPVC materials, today's double glazing window frames can be made in pretty much any colour.

All double glazed windows fitted today must display the CE approval mark. This CE mark should be plainly visible on the inside of the sealed glass panel and on the frame, and verifies the quality of both the frame and the glass.

Make certain your Redbourn double glazing specialist is using CE approved materials in the manufacture of it's windows, otherwise they could be made to less rigorous standards and with inferior materials and components.
