Double Glazing Weymouth Dorset (DT3): You can reduce noise levels, boost security and increase your home's energy efficiency by installing double glazing. Double glazing refers to the method of making the window using two panes of glass with a gas layer, commonly argon, trapped between them. As it behaves like insulation, this gas provides a home with outstanding thermal and sound proofing qualities.
If you have already got older style double glazing in your house in Weymouth but are dealing with issues, like condensation between the glass panes or draughts, it might be time to consider updating your windows.
Condensation is caused by a gap developing in the seal around the glass and allowing warm air from inside the house to enter the gap between the window panes. As the warm air comes into contact with the cooler exterior glass pane, moisture forms, with condensation being the result. If this is a regular occurrence, particularly in winter time, you could either replace the sealed unit, or get brand new double glazing.
If your Weymouth home currently has single glazed windows, upgrading to double glazed windows will see immediate improvements in the warmth and soundproofing. You could also enhance your property's value (when you opt to sell), by making the upgrade to double glazing.
DOUBLE GLAZING WINDOW STYLES AND MATERIALS
By using a professional double glazing fitter in Weymouth, you will be able get windows that match the style of your choice and accentuate your property perfectly. Whether you're looking for contemporary patio doors and casement windows, or period sash windows for an older house in Weymouth, double glazed units are available in a wide range of materials, sizes and colours to suit your needs.
Having hinges on one side, double glazing casement windows can open outwards or inwards depending on their design. This allows for easier cleaning and also provides ample airflow during the summer months. They're also available in a tilt and turn arrangement which adds an additional degree of security where essential. The addition of an extra hinge allows tilt and turn double glazed windows to open to a limited degree. This adds extra security as they can be locked securely in place when partially open to permit a cool breeze to flow into the room.
There are also options available for double glazed sash windows with a more traditional appearance to complement a period home in Weymouth. These can be single hung, where only one pane is moveable, or double hung, where both sashes can be slid open. In times past sash windows were not known for being energy efficient, but modern double glazing models have reduced this issue and today there's hardly any difference between sash and casement windows with respect to thermal losses.
Bay windows look fantastic and can bring a feeling of space to a room. If your property in Weymouth is already fitted with bay windows, they can fairly easily be replaced with double glazed equivalents. Bay windows bring plenty of character and style to a home, but the main benefit is the amount of light that they allow to flood into a room. Another plus point is being able to install a useful window seat, if the sill is deep enough on the inside of the window.
Modern double glazed units can be produced in almost any colour you desire by using uPVC materials. For a more modern feel you could opt for aluminium frames, or for that traditional look - timber frames. Aluminium windows no longer have to be a dull, grey and rather bland looking frame for your double glazing, and can easily be coloured to match your property.
All new double glazed frames should come with a CE approval mark. This proves the standard of the frame and the glass and the CE mark should be visible on the inside of the sealed glass panel and on the frame. All doors and windows made in the United Kingdom and within Europe, must display the CE logo. If CE approved materials are not used by your Weymouth double glazing company, they may be using poor quality components and made using less rigorous standards. Even though these lower quality products may be good enough in certain situations, you should insist on guaranteed double glazing that have CE approval for your home in Weymouth.
