Scarborough Double Glazed Windows & Doors

Double Glazing Scarborough North Yorkshire (YO11): Double glazed windows can increase your home's energy efficiency, reduce noise levels and boost security.

The time may have come to consider updating your windows, if you've already got older style double glazing in your home in Scarborough but have been having problems, like condensation between the panels or draughts.

Double Glazing Scarborough North Yorkshire (YO11)

When a small gap develops in the seal around the glass, warmer air from inside the property can enter the gap between the window panes and causes condensation. As the colder outside glass pane comes into contact with the heated air, moisture is formed as condensation. If this happens regularly it's time to replace your current windows.

If your Scarborough home has single glazed windows, upgrading to double glazed units will see an immediate improvement in the warmth and soundproofing. You may also boost your property's value (if you elect to sell), by upgrading to double glazed windows.


To find double glazed windows that match your choice and complement your property, you can use a specialist double glazing fitter in the Scarborough area. Double glazing frames can be found in a wide selection of colours, sizes and materials, to suit traditional sash windows for older properties, to contemporary patio doors and casement windows.

Hinged on one side, double glazed casement windows can be made to open outwards or inwards depending on the design. This enables easier cleaning and also gives a good amount of airflow during the summer. Tilt and turn casement windows can also be purchased for use where security is important.

Enhanced security results, because to allow a fresh breeze to flow into the room, they can be locked firmly into position when only partially open.

Double glazing sash windows with a traditional look can be purchased to match older and period homes in Scarborough. These can be double hung, where both of the sashes can be opened, or single hung, where just one pane moves.

If a cat is a part of your household, you might have considered installing a cat flap in your double glazing. This can be a fantastic way to give your cat the freedom to come and go as they wish, without you continuously having to open and close the door for them.

There are a variety of cat flaps available on the market, so you can pick one that is the best fit for your needs. Some features you might want to consider include a microchip reader or a lock.

Having chosen a cat flap, contact a professional cat flap installer. They will visit your home to assess the situation and measure the space for the cat flap installation. They can also advise you on the best style of cat flap for your needs.

To preserve the double glazing unit's integrity and ensure the cat flap's proper installation, the cat flap fitter will order a new double-glazed unit with a hole cut out for the cat flap.

Once the new double glazing unit has arrived, the cat flap fitter will revisit your home in Scarborough to install it.
