Double Glazing Tilehurst Berkshire (RG31): The installation of double glazing in your home in Tilehurst, will reduce noise, improve security and enhance your home's energy efficiency.

Because it acts like an insulating material, this gas provides a property with effective sound proofing and thermal qualities.

If you have already got older style double glazing in your house in Tilehurst but are living with issues, like condensation between the panes or draughts, the time might have come to consider updating your windows.

Double Glazing Tilehurst Berkshire (RG31)

Condensation in the gap between the glass panes is caused when a hole appears in the seal around the glass and warmer air enters from inside the home. As the warmer air makes contact with the colder outside pane of glass, moisture forms, with condensation as the result. It is time to change your existing windows, if this is occurring frequently.

If your Tilehurst home has single glazed windows, changing to double glazed windows will see an immediate improvement in the warmth and soundproofing. Making the upgrade to double glazed windows can also help to improve you home's value if you opt to sell.


You can find a professional installer in the Tilehurst area who will be able to source windows to match the style of your choice, and that perfectly complement your home. Whether you are searching for traditional sash windows for an older house in Tilehurst, or contemporary casement windows and patio doors, double glazing units can be bought in many different sizes, materials and colours to match your needs.

Having hinges on one side only, double glazed casement windows can open inwards or outwards depending on the design. This means that they're easily cleaned, and offer the possibility of adequate airflow during the summer season. If security is vital to you, casement windows are also available in a tilt and turn pattern. Allowing them to be opened slightly, tilt and turn double glazed windows have an additional hinge. This adds extra security as they can be locked firmly in position when partially open to allow for a cool breeze to flow into the room.

To suit an older or period house in Tilehurst, there are also options for double glazing sash windows with a more traditional appearance. These can be single hung, where just one sash moves, or double hung, where both sashes can be slid open. Sash windows were not renowned for their energy efficiency in past times, but these days there is very little between the thermal losses of casement and sash windows, as contemporary double glazing designs have reduced this problem.

Bay windows look wonderful and can bring a sense of space to a room. If you have an existing bay window it's feasible to replace it with a double glazed equivalent to keep the style. Bay windows bring lots of style and character to a home, but the main advantage is the quantity of light that they allow into a room. A further benefit is having the opportunity to put in a window seat, if the sill is deep enough on the interior side of the window.

By using uPVC materials, modern day double glazing window frames can be made in virtually any colour. For a classic look you can also have wooden frames, or for a more contemporary feel even pick aluminium. Readily coloured to blend in with your property, aluminium windows no longer have to be a dull, bland and grey like they were in the 1970s and 80s.

You should be able to find the CE mark on any new double glazing that is installed in Tilehurst homes. This mark proves the standard of both the frame and the glass, and should be visible on the frame itself and inside the sealed glass unit. All windows and doors produced in Britain and within Europe, must display the CE logo. If CE approved materials are not used by your double glazing firm in Tilehurst, they may be using poor quality components and making their windows and doors using less rigorous standards. It is better to always insist on only using products that come with a CE approval and are backed by a guarantee or warranty.


A good starting point when searching for a decent double glazing company in Tilehurst is to ask friends or acquaintances for recommendations.

As soon as you've chosen your preferred double glazing specialist in Tilehurst and have agreed a price for your windows and doors, they'll be custom made in your desired style and colour. Depending on your frame type, the opening options, the amount of windows you need and the style of window, this could take anywhere from a few days to several weeks. An installation time frame can then be arranged between you and the company, which should include provision for planning permission applications when necessary.

You might require planning permission if your home is in a conservation area, has a restrictive covenant, is a listed building or is close to a National Park. A reputable double glazing firm will advise you of any local restrictions and will likely have already done work in the area, and so will understand the legal necessities and requirements.

The installation time of your double glazing will of course depend on how many windows and doors are being installed. It usually takes approximately 3 hours to install a regular double glazed window. This time also includes taking out the old window, and carefully preparing the space into which the new window will sit. In a day or so, an average home in Tilehurst can be finished with very little disruption to you and your family.


A competent double glazing firm should be registered with at least one industry organisation or body such as the Glass and Glazing Federation (GGF), the DGCOS (Double Glazing Conservatory Ombudsman Scheme), Trustmark or FENSA to name but a few.
