Double Glazing Strathaven

Strathaven Double Glazed Windows & Doors

Double Glazing Strathaven Scotland (ML10): Putting double glazing into your home in Strathaven, will improve security, reduce noise levels and increase your home's energy efficiency. The term double glazing actually refers to the way these windows are made using a double layer of glass, with a gas filled layer between them (normally argon). This gas acts as an insulating material and provides outstanding sound proofing and thermal qualities for any home or property in Strathaven.

If you've already got older double glazing in your home in Strathaven but are dealing with problems, such as condensation between the panes or draughts, it may be time to think about swapping your windows.

Double Glazing Strathaven Scotland (ML10)

Condensation in the gap between the panes occurs when holes develop in the seal around the glass and heated air enters from inside the home. Moisture forms as the warm air comes into contact with the colder exterior glass pane, which means that you have a condensation issue. If this is happening on a regular basis it is probably time to replace your existing windows.

If your Strathaven property currently has windows with single glazing, the switch to double glazed units will see an immediate improvement in the warmth and soundproofing. Making the upgrade to double glazing could also help to improve your property's value when you elect to sell.


To find double glazed windows that match your choice of style and complement your home, you should hire a professional double glazing fitter in the Strathaven area. Double glazed frames are available in a variety of materials, colours and sizes, to suit contemporary patio doors and casement windows to traditional sash windows for older houses.

Double glazing casement windows are hinged on one side and can open inwards or outwards. This permits easier cleaning and also provides ample airflow during the summer months. For added security, casement windows can also come in a tilt and turn design. The addition of a supplementary hinge enables tilt and turn windows to be opened to a limited degree. This adds extra security because they can be locked in position when only partly open to permit a cool breeze to flow into the room.

To suit an older or period home in Strathaven, there are also options available for double glazing sash windows with a more traditional look. There are single hung models where just one sash can be slid open, and double hung designs, where both panes slide. During the past sash windows weren't noted for their energy efficiency, but contemporary double glazed models have alleviated this problem and now there is virtually nothing between casement windows and sash windows with respect to thermal losses.

An alternative may be a bay window, which looks wonderful and helps to bring a feeling of space to even the most modest of rooms. If your property in Strathaven has already got a bay window, it should not be too difficult to replace it with a double glazed equivalent. The advantage of a bay window is the amount of light it allows into a room, and if you have a deep sill on the interior side, it's an ideal place to have a window seat installed.

Double Glazing Quotes in Strathaven Scotland

Due to the development of modern uPVC materials, practically any colour you desire is possible in today's double glazing units. For a traditional look you could also have wooden frames, or for a more contemporary feel even opt for aluminium double glazing. Today's aluminium windows can be coloured to match your home and no longer have to be a grey, dull and bland looking frame for your double glazing.

All new double glazed windows should come with a CE approval mark. This CE mark proves the quality of both the frame and the glass, and should be visible on the frame and on the inside of the sealed glass unit. For all windows and doors produced in the United Kingdom and within Europe, the CE logo is a requirement. If CE approved materials are not used by your Strathaven double glazing company, they might be using low quality components and making their windows and doors using less stringent standards. It's always better to demand only using products that come with a CE approval and are backed up with a guarantee or warranty.

When you have decided on your preferred double glazing company in Strathaven and have agreed upon a price for your doors and windows, they will be made to measure in your desired colour and style. This process could take from a few days to several weeks subject to the opening options, the amount of doors and windows you need, the design of window and your frame type. The time frame for installation will be agreed upon by you and will include any need for planning permission applications if necessary.

Planning permission may be required if your home has a restrictive covenant, is listed, is in a conservation area or is in an area such as the boundaries of a National Park. Understanding all the legal necessities and requirements, an established double glazing firm will be able to advise you on any restrictions and will have previously completed work in the Strathaven area.

Your double glazing installation time will of course depend on how many windows and doors are involved. A typical modern double glazed window can be installed in about three hours. This time also includes taking out the pre-existing window, and preparing the void into which the new window will sit. An average property in Strathaven can be finished within a couple of days with the minimum of disruption to you.


Any double glazing specialist in Strathaven worth your consideration should be a member of FENSA, the Glass and Glazing Federation (GGF), Trustmark, the Double Glazing Conservatory Ombudsman Scheme (DGCOS), or some other acknowledged trade association.

Whilst these associations don't necessarily mean that nothing at all will go wrong during the installation of new windows, it does show that the company is qualified, experienced and follows the appropriate building regulations, which is legally required.

Together with any company warranties, these industry associations also offer some type of compensation or guarantee schemes, to ensure that there is an unbiased arbitration between the two parties in the event of any conflict. It's always good to know that help can be sought if it is required, although the vast majority of double glazing installations in Strathaven are completed satisfactorily.


Even if work has gone to plan during your window installation there might be questions or advice needed afterwards. Your double glazing should come with a guarantee of up to ten years, and many double glazing specialists in Strathaven will also offer a troubleshooting and callout service in case anything goes wrong with your new windows. It's wise to check this beforehand to see if there's a free callout and repair period as part of their guarantee.

Installing Cat Flaps in Double Glazing

In case you have a cat, you might have considered putting in a cat flap in your double glazing. This can be a wonderful way to give your cat the freedom to enter and exit the house as they wish, without you having to continuously open and shut the door for them.

Installing a cat flap in double glazing isn't a DIY job, so it's important to keep this in mind. Specialized equipment and tools are essential for this complex procedure. If you do not have experience in this sort of work, it is best to hire a professional cat flap fitter.

How to install a cat flap in double glazing:

The first step is to choose a cat flap that is the right size for your cat and has the features you need. 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 may want to consider include a lock or a microchip reader. For example, you may want a cat flap with a lock to prevent other animals from entering your home, or a cat flap with a microchip reader to allow only your cat to enter your property.

After choosing a cat flap, you need to contact a specialist cat flap installer. They will visit your home to assess the situation and measure the space where the cat flap will be installed. They can also provide you with advice on the best sort of cat flap for your needs.

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

The cat flap specialist will return to your home in Strathaven to install the new double-glazed unit once it has been delivered. This process entails removing the old double-glazed unit and replacing it with the new one. The cat flap installer then installs the cat flap in the hole cut into the double glazing unit.

The cat flap fitter will test the flap to ensure its proper functioning and demonstrate its settings and usage, providing you with the knowledge and confidence to operate the flap independently. (47902 - Cat Flaps in Double Glazing)
