Double Glazing Walton-on-Thames Surrey (KT12): You can boost security, increase your home's energy efficiency and reduce noise by installing double glazing. Double glazing describes the way a window is made using 2 panes of glass with a gas layer, commonly argon, trapped between them. As it acts like an insulating material, this gas provides a property or home with impressive sound proofing and thermal qualities.
If your house in Walton-on-Thames is already fitted with older double glazed windows, and you're faced with problems such as condensation or draughts, it may be a wise idea to now get new replacement double glazing to bring your property back in shape.
Condensation occurs in the gap between the panes when a gap develops in the sealed unit and warmer air enters from inside the house. As the warmer air comes into contact with the cooler exterior glass pane, moisture forms, with condensation as the result. It may be time to change your existing windows, if this problem occurs on a regular basis.
If your Walton-on-Thames home currently has single glazed windows, upgrading to double glazed windows will see an immediate improvement in the warmth and insulation from outside sounds. Upgrading to double glazing may also add more value to your property, which will obviously be advantageous when you later decide to sell up and relocate.
DOUBLE GLAZING WINDOW STYLES AND MATERIALS
You should be able to find a professional window fitter in the Walton-on-Thames area who'll be able to match the style of window of your choice, and one that complements your property. From modern casement windows and patio doors to period sash windows for older homes, double glazing units can be purchased in an array of materials, sizes and colours.
Opening outwards or inwards, double glazed casement windows have hinges on one side. This allows for easier cleaning and also gives a good amount of airflow during the summer months. Casement windows can also be arranged into a tilt and turn window for extra security. Permitting them to be opened a small amount, tilt and turn double glazed windows have a supplementary hinge. This adds extra security because they can be locked into position when only partially open to allow for a fresh breeze to flow into the room.
To complement an older or period house in Walton-on-Thames, there are also options available for double glazed sash windows with a more traditional look. There are double hung models where both of the panes can be moved, and single hung versions where only one pane slides. The sash windows of yesteryear were known for their poor energy efficiency, however this problem has for the most part been reduced with modern double glazed designs, and with respect to thermal loss, there is very little between sash and casement windows today.
An alternative might be a bay window, which will look fantastic and help to bring a feeling of space to even the most modest of rooms. If your Walton-on-Thames home has a bay window already, replacing it with a double glazed equivalent should not be too much of an issue. The good thing about a bay window is the amount of light it lets into a room, and if you've got a sill that is sufficiently deep on the interior side, it's a great place to install a window seat.
By using uPVC materials, today's double glazing frames can be made in pretty much any colour. It is also possible to have wooden frames for a traditional feel, or aluminium double glazing for a somewhat more modern effect. Today's aluminium units can easily be coloured to suit your property and no longer have to be a bland, grey and rather dull looking frame for your double glazing.
All double glazing fitted in Walton-on-Thames today must display the CE approval mark. This verifies the quality of the glass and of the frame and the CE mark should be visible inside the sealed glass panel and on the frame. All windows and doors made in Great Britain and the EU, must be marked with the CE logo. Make certain that your double glazing specialist in Walton-on-Thames is using CE approved materials for it's windows, or else they might be made to less rigorous standards and using substandard materials and components. Although they might be good enough for certain uses, it is best to demand only using products that come with CE approval and are backed by a guarantee.
