Double Glazing Whitehaven Cumbria (CA28): You can reduce noise, improve security and enhance your home's energy efficiency by installing double glazing. These windows are manufactured using a double layer of glass with a gas filled layer, commonly argon, between them, hence the term 'double glazing'. Acting as an insulating material, this gas delivers excellent thermal and sound proofing qualities for any home.

If you already have older style double glazed windows in your house in Whitehaven but are dealing with issues, like draughts or condensation between the glass panes, it may be time to think about replacing your windows.

Double Glazing Whitehaven Cumbria (CA28)

Condensation takes place when small gaps appear in the seal around the glass, and heated air from inside the property finds its way into the gap between the glass panes. As the cooler external pane of glass makes contact with the warmer air, moisture is formed as condensation. It may be time to change your current windows, if this problem occurs on a regular basis.

If your Whitehaven home has single glazed windows, changing to double glazed units will see an immediate improvement in the warmth and soundproofing. Making the upgrade to double glazed windows could also help to increase the value of your property when you choose to sell.


To obtain double glazed windows that satisfy your choice of style and match your home, you can use an experienced double glazing installer in the Whitehaven area. From contemporary casement windows and patio doors to period sash windows for older homes, double glazed frames can be found in a large selection of colours, sizes and materials.

Double glazed casement windows have hinges on one side and can be made to open inwards or outwards. This gives ample airflow in the summertime and allows for easier cleaning. Casement windows can also be arranged into a tilt and turn design for extra security. The addition of an extra hinge enables tilt and turn double glazed windows to be opened to a limited degree. This adds more security because they can be locked securely in place when partially open to allow for a fresh breeze to flow into the room.

To suit an older or period property in Whitehaven, there are also options available for double glazed sash windows with a traditional look. There are double hung versions where both sashes can be moved, and single hung versions where just one sash can be slid open. During the past sash windows were not known for being energy efficient, but contemporary double glazed models have reduced this issue and nowadays there is pretty much nothing between casement windows and sash windows with regards to thermal losses.

Helping to bring a sense of space to a room, bay windows look fantastic. If you've got an existing bay window it is feasible to replace it with an equivalent double glazed frame to maintain the style. Bay windows bring plenty of style and character to a home, however the main benefit is the amount of light that they let into a room. An extra plus point is being able to install a useful window seat, if the sill is deep enough on the inside of the window.

Through the use of uPVC materials, modern double glazed units can be made in pretty much any colour. For a more modern feel you could opt for aluminium, or for that classic look - timber frames units. Easily coloured to match your home, aluminium units no longer have to be a grey, dull and bland like they were in the 70's and 80's.

Make certain your Whitehaven double glazing firm is using CE approved materials in the manufacture of it's windows and doors, or else they may be made to less stringent standards and with poor quality materials and components. Although they might be adequate for many uses, it's best to insist on only using double glazed frames that come with CE approval and are backed by a guarantee.

Installing Cat Flaps in Double Glazing

You might have pondered the possibility of fitting a cat flap in your double glazing, if you have a cat. This can be a fantastic way to give your cat the freedom to come and go as they wish, without you continuously having to open and close the door for them.

However, it is worth noting that installing a cat flap in double glazing isn't a task that can be done by yourself. It is a complex procedure that requires specialist tools and equipment. If you do not have experience in this type 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 choose one that is the best fit for your needs. Some features you might want to consider include a lock or a microchip reader. For example, you may want a cat flap with a microchip reader to allow only your cat to enter your house.

Once a cat flap has been chosen, a professional cat flap fitter should be contacted. They will visit your home to assess the situation and measure the space for the cat flap installation. They can also advise you on the best kind of cat flap for your needs.

The cat flap fitter will then order a new double glazing unit with a hole cut out for the cat flap. This will make certain that the cat flap is installed correctly and that the integrity of the double glazing unit is not compromised.

After the new double glazing unit is delivered, the cat flap fitter will return to your home in Whitehaven to install it. This process involves removing the old double-glazed unit and installing the new one. The cat flap installer then installs the cat flap in the hole cut into the double-glazed unit.

The flap installer will test the device to ensure its proper operation and demonstrate its usage and settings, providing you with the reassurance that your cat flap is working correctly and that you know how to use it. (47902 - Cat Flaps in Double Glazing)
