Double Glazing Sawbridgeworth Hertfordshire (CM21): Double glazing can enhance your home's energy efficiency, improve security and reduce noise. The term double glazing essentially relates to the way these windows are made using a double layer of glass, with a gas layer trapped between them (usually argon). Because it acts like insulation, this gas provides a property with tremendous sound proofing and thermal qualities.
The time may have come to look at updating your windows, if you already have older double glazing in your house in Sawbridgeworth but are having issues, such as draughts or condensation between the panes.
Condensation is caused by a small hole appearing in the sealed unit and enabling warmer air from inside the house to enter the gap between the panes. Moisture forms as the warm air comes into contact with the colder outside glass pane, with the result that you have a condensation issue. It may be time to replace your current windows, if this is happening fairly often.
Changing to double glazing will see an immediate improvement in the warmth and soundproofing, if your home in Sawbridgeworth has currently got single glazed windows. The upgrade to double glazed windows can also help to boost the value of your home if you decide to sell.
DOUBLE GLAZING WINDOW STYLES AND MATERIALS
You can find a specialist installer in the Sawbridgeworth area who'll be able to match the style of window of your choice, and that complements your home. From modern casement windows and patio doors to traditional sash windows for older properties, double glazed units are available in a wide range of sizes, materials and colours.
Double glazed casement windows are hinged to one side and can be made to open outwards or inwards. This means that they are easier to clean, and can provide adequate airflow during the summer season. If security is important to you, casement windows also come in a tilt and turn layout. Tilt and turn double glazed windows have an extra hinge to be able to open slightly. This adds extra security as they can be locked into position when only partly open to permit a cool breeze to flow into the room.
For a more traditional look to enhance a period home in Sawbridgeworth, there are double glazed sash windows available. These can be double hung, where both of the sashes can be slid open, or single hung, where only one sash moves. The sash windows of yesteryear were known for their poor standard of energy efficiency, however this issue has been largely reduced with modern double glazing designs, and with regards to thermal losses, there's hardly any difference between casement and sash windows today.
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 you've got an existing bay window it is feasible to change it for a double glazed equivalent to keep the style. The good thing about a bay window is the amount of light it allows into a room, and if you've got a sill that is sufficiently deep on the inside, it's an ideal place to fit a window seat.
Today's double glazing units can be manufactured in pretty much any colour with the use of uPVC materials. For a traditional look you can also have timber frames, or for a more modern feel even pick aluminium double glazing. Readily coloured to complement your property, aluminium units no longer have to be a dull, grey and bland like they were in the 1970s and 80s.
All modern double glazing should come with a CE approval mark. This is proof of the standard of the glass and of the frame and the CE mark should be plainly visible inside the sealed glass panel and on the frame. The CE logo is a necessary requirement for all windows and doors produced in the UK and within Europe. If CE approved materials aren't used by your Sawbridgeworth double glazing company, they may be using low quality components and making their windows and doors using less rigorous specifications. Although these might be acceptable for many uses, it's better to demand only using products that come with CE approval and are backed by a guarantee.
