This inert gas acts as insulation and provides outstanding thermal and sound proofing qualities for any home or property in Thatcham.

Double Glazing Thatcham Berkshire (RG18)

When a small gap appears in the sealed unit, warm air from inside the property can enter the space between the panes and causes condensation. Moisture forms as the heated air comes into contact with the cooler outside glass pane, with the result that you have a condensation problem. If this is a regular occurrence, particularly during the winter, you could either replace the sealed unit, or get brand new windows.

An immediate improvement in the warmth and soundproofing will be seen if your property in Thatcham has single glazed windows and you switch to double glazing. You could also enhance the value of your home (when you elect to sell), by upgrading to double glazing.


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 Thatcham area. Whether you're searching for modern casement windows and patio doors, or period sash windows for an older house in Thatcham, double glazing frames can be bought in a large selection of sizes, colours and materials to match your needs.

Double glazing casement windows have hinges on one side and can open outwards or inwards. This enables easier cleaning and also gives ample airflow during the summer months. If security is crucial to you, double glazed casement windows are also available in a tilt and turn pattern. The addition of an extra hinge allows tilt and turn windows to open to a limited degree. As they can be locked in position when only partially open to allow for cool air to flow into the room, the security is much better.

Double glazed sash windows with a more tradition appearance can be purchased to match older or period homes in Thatcham. There are single hung designs where just one pane can be slid open, and double hung models, where both panes slide. Sash windows were not renowned for their energy efficiency in past times, but nowadays there's pretty much nothing between the thermal loss of sash and casement windows, as modern double glazed models have reduced this issue.

An alternative might be a bay window, which looks amazing and helps to bring a feeling of space to even the most modest of rooms. If your Thatcham property has a bay window already, exchanging it for an equivalent double glazed frame should not be too much of an issue. The amount of light that it allows into a room, is the good thing about a bay window, and it's a great place to have a window seat installed if you have a deep sill on the inside.

With the development uPVC materials, virtually any colour is possible in today's double glazing window frames. It is also possible to have timber frames for a classic look, or aluminium frames for a somewhat more contemporary feel.

Although these poorer quality products may be OK in certain situations, you should always insist on guaranteed products with CE approval for your home in Thatcham.

It's important to be aware, however, that installing a cat flap in double glazing isn't a DIY task. This is a complex process that requires specialised tools and equipment. Unless you are experienced in this type of work, it is best to hire a professional cat flap fitter.
