Double Glazing Sandhurst Berkshire (GU47): Putting in double glazing can help to boost security, reduce noise levels and raise the energy efficiency of your home in Sandhurst. These windows are manufactured using twin panes of glass with a gas filled layer, normally argon, between them, thus the expression 'double glazing'. This inert gas acts as an insulating material and delivers incredible thermal and sound proofing qualities for any property in Sandhurst.
If your house in Sandhurst is already fitted with older double glazed windows, and you are dealing with issues such as condensation or draughts, it may be wise to now get new replacement double glazing to get your premises back to 21st century standards.
Condensation happens when small gaps appear in the seal around the glass, and heated air from inside the property enters into the gap between the glass panes. Moisture forms as the heated air makes contact with the colder outside glass pane, with the result that you have a condensation issue. If this happens frequently it is time to upgrade your current windows.
If your Sandhurst property currently has single glazing, upgrading to double glazed units will see an immediate improvement in the warmth and soundproofing. Upgrading to double glazing may also add extra value to your home, which will obviously be advantageous should you later choose to sell up.
DOUBLE GLAZED WINDOW MATERIALS AND STYLES
You should be able to find a specialist installer in the Sandhurst area who'll be able to source windows to match the style of your choice, and that perfectly complement your property. From period sash windows for older houses, to contemporary patio doors and casement windows, double glazing frames can be purchased in a whole host of materials, colours and sizes.
Double glazing casement windows have hinges on one side and can open inwards or outwards. This means that they're easily cleaned, and can provide ample airflow during the summertime. They are also available in a tilt and turn design which adds another degree of security where required. Allowing them to open slightly, tilt and turn double glazed windows have a supplementary hinge. As they can be locked firmly into position when only partly open to allow for a fresh breeze to flow into the room, the security is increased.
There are also available options for double glazed sash windows for a more traditional look that are suitable for a period house in Sandhurst. There are single hung versions where just one sash slides, and double hung styles, where both panes are moveable. In the past sash windows were not noted for being energy efficient, but modern double glazing models have alleviated this problem and today there's practically nothing between sash windows and casement windows in relation to thermal losses.
An alternative might be a bay window, which looks amazing and helps to bring a sense of space to even the smallest of rooms. If your property in Sandhurst already has a bay window, it can fairly easily be replaced with a double glazed equivalent. Bay windows bring plenty of style and character to a home, but the main benefit is the quantity of light that they let into a room. An extra benefit is having the opportunity to install a useful window seat, if a deep sill exists on the interior side of the window.
Through the use of uPVC materials, modern double glazing frames can be made in pretty much any colour. You can also have wooden frames for a classic feel, or aluminium frames for a somewhat more modern look. Aluminium units no longer have to be a grey, dull and rather bland looking frame for your windows, and can easily be coloured to suit your home.
You must be able to find the CE mark on any new double glazed frames that are installed in Sandhurst homes. This mark should be visible inside the sealed glass unit and on the frame, and is proof of the standard of both the glass and the frame itself. All windows and doors made in Great Britain and the EU, must be marked with the CE logo. If CE approved materials are not used by your Sandhurst double glazing company, they could be using poor quality components and made using less rigorous standards. It is better to always demand only using products that come with a CE approval and are backed up with a warranty or guarantee.
INSTALLATION OF REPLACEMENT DOUBLE GLAZING IN SANDHURST
Finding a decent double glazing specialist in Sandhurst for your new doors and windows can often begin with recommendations from family or friends. Word of mouth testimonials can provide a perception of how a company works and can be very helpful when searching for potential companies to give you a quote. Try to get in touch with at least three different companies when gathering quotations for double glazing in Sandhurst. So as to help you pick the ideal solution for your new windows and doors, a competent double glazing fitter will provide a free, no obligation quote. Precise measurements of your window and door frames will be taken by a salesperson, so you'll get an accurate price for the task. Remember, if you are having your whole home in Sandhurst double glazed, there might be some room for negotiation on price.
Once you're happy with a price you've been quoted, and have decided on which company in Sandhurst to hire, your brand new double glazed windows will be made-to-measure at the factory. Subject to the number of doors and windows you need, the opening options, the design of window and your frame type, this may take anything from several days to a few weeks. The time frame for installation will be agreed upon by you and should include the need for applying for planning permission if necessary.
It's possible that you might need planning permission if your property is in a conservation area, is on the boundaries of a National Park, has a restrictive covenant or is a listed building. Understanding all the legal necessities and requirements, an established double glazing firm will be happy to advise you about any restrictions and will have previously done work in the Sandhurst area.
The installation time of your double glazing will obviously depend on how many windows and doors are being installed. A regular modern double glazed window can be installed in less than 3 hours. This includes the removal of the old window and trueing up the frame for the new windows to fit in. A normal house can be finished within a couple of days with minimal disruption to you.
DOUBLE GLAZING ACCREDITATIONS
Any double glazing specialist in Sandhurst worth considering should have accreditations from the Double Glazing Conservatory Ombudsman Scheme (DGCOS), FENSA, the Glass and Glazing Federation, Trustmark, or some other recognised industry body.
Membership of such trade bodies demonstrates that the company is qualified, experienced and observes the appropriate building regulations, but doesn't necessarily guarantee that nothing will go wrong during your double glazing installation.
In case of any disagreement between the two parties, these trade associations offer some type of guarantee or compensation schemes, together with company warranty, and provide impartial arbitration when necessary. Even though the vast majority of double glazing work in Sandhurst is completed without any issues, it is great to know that if help is needed, it is readily available.
DOUBLE GLAZING AFTERCARE AND AFTER SALES SUPPORT
Even with window installations that have gone smoothly and according to plan, advice may be needed afterwards, and questions might need to be asked. Double glazing companies in Sandhurst will usually offer a ten year guarantee on your new windows, and in the event that anything should go wrong many will also offer you a callout and troubleshooting service. To see if there is a free callout and repair period as part of their guarantee, it's wise to check this beforehand.
