Double Glazing Shanklin Isle of Wight (PO37): The installation of double glazing can help to reduce noise levels, improve security and increase the energy efficiency of your Shanklin home. The term double glazing essentially relates to the method of making these windows using 2 panes of glass, with a gas filled layer between them (generally argon). This inert gas acts as insulation and provides incredible sound proofing and thermal qualities for any home in Shanklin.
It may be time to consider updating your windows, if you already have older double glazing in your house in Shanklin but have been living with problems, such as draughts or condensation between the panes.
When a small gap develops in the seal around the glass, warmer air from inside the property enters into the space between the glass panes and causes condensation. As the cooler external glass pane comes into contact with the warmer air, moisture is formed as condensation. If this is happening on a regular basis the time may have come to upgrade your existing windows.
Upgrading to double glazed units will see immediate improvements in the warmth and soundproofing, if your home in Shanklin has currently got single glazed windows. You could also increase the value of your property (if you decide to sell), by making the upgrade to double glazing.
DOUBLE GLAZING WINDOW MATERIALS AND STYLES
You should be able to find a competent window fitter in the Shanklin area who will be able to source windows to match the style of your choice, and that perfectly complement your home. From contemporary casement windows and patio doors to traditional sash windows for older houses, double glazing units can be found in a large selection of materials, colours and sizes.
Opening outwards or inwards, double glazing casement windows are hinged on one side only. This means they are easier to clean, and can provide ample airflow during the summer season. If security is important to you, casement windows also come in a tilt and turn style. Tilt and turn double glazed windows have an additional hinge to be able to open slightly. Enhanced security results, because to let a fresh breeze to flow into the room, they can be locked into position when partially open.
Double glazing sash windows with a more tradition appearance can be purchased to complement older and period properties in Shanklin. These can be double hung, where both panes can be slid open, or single hung, where just one sash is moveable. The sash windows of yesteryear had a reputation for poor energy efficiency, however this problem has been largely alleviated with contemporary double glazing models, and in relation to thermal losses, there's hardly any difference between sash and casement windows today.
Helping to bring a feeling of space to a room, bay windows look great. If you have an existing bay window it's possible to change it for an equivalent double glazed frame to keep the style. Bay windows bring a lot of style and character to a home, but the main benefit is the quantity of light that they allow into a room. A further plus point is having the opportunity to put in a window seat, if a deep sill exists on the inside of the window.
With the use of uPVC materials, modern double glazing window frames can be made in pretty much any colour. It is also possible to have wooden frames for a traditional look, or aluminium frames for a somewhat more modern feel. Easily coloured to blend in with your home, aluminium windows no longer have to be a bland, grey and dull like they were in the 1970s and 80s.
All double glazing installed in Shanklin today should display the CE approval mark. This CE mark should be visible inside the sealed glass unit and on the frame, and proves the quality of both the glass and the frame itself. The CE logo is a necessity for all windows and doors manufactured in the UK and within Europe. If CE approved materials aren't used by your Shanklin double glazing firm, they could be using cheaper components and made using less rigorous standards. Even though they may be adequate for some uses, it is better to insist on only using products that come with a CE approval and are backed by a guarantee.
