Double Glazing Whitley Bay

Whitley Bay Double Glazed Windows & Doors

Double Glazing Whitley Bay Tyne and Wear (NE25): Double glazed windows can enhance your home's energy efficiency, reduce noise levels and boost security. The term double glazing essentially refers to the method of making these windows using two panes of glass, with a gas layer between them (commonly argon). This inert gas acts as an insulating material and delivers impressive sound proofing and thermal qualities for any home in Whitley Bay.

If you've already got older double glazed windows in your home in Whitley Bay but are experiencing problems, such as draughts or condensation between the panels, the time might have come to consider upgrading your windows.

Double Glazing Whitley Bay Tyne and Wear (NE25)

Condensation is caused by a small gap appearing in the seal around the glass, enabling warm air from inside the property to enter the gap between the window panes. As the cooler exterior pane of glass comes into contact with the warmer air, moisture is formed as condensation. If this happens regularly it is time to upgrade your current windows.

If your Whitley Bay property currently has single glazing, upgrading to double glazed units will see an immediate improvement in the warmth and soundproofing. You may also enhance you home's value (if you elect to sell), by upgrading to double glazed windows.


To find double glazed windows that match your choice and complement your home, you should hire a competent double glazing installer in the Whitley Bay area. Double glazing units can be purchased in an array of colours, materials and sizes, to match modern casement windows and patio doors to period sash windows for older properties.

Opening inwards or outwards, double glazed casement windows have hinges on one side. This permits easier cleaning and also delivers ample airflow during the summer. Casement windows can also come in a tilt and turn window for extra security. The addition of an extra hinge enables tilt and turn double glazed windows to open to a limited degree. Because they can be locked into position when only partly open to allow for a fresh breeze to flow into the room, the security is enhanced.

For that classic look to enhance a period house in Whitley Bay, there are double glazed sash windows available. There are double hung styles where both of the panes are moveable, and single hung designs where only one sash can be slid open. The sash windows of the past were known for their poor standard of energy efficiency, however this problem has been largely reduced with modern double glazing models, and with regards to thermal losses, there's very little between sash and casement windows today.

Helping to bring a sense of space to a room, bay windows look wonderful. If your Whitley Bay property has an existing bay window, replacing it with a double glazed equivalent shouldn't be too difficult. The advantage of 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 inside, it is the ideal place to have a window seat installed.

Double Glazing Quotes in Whitley Bay Tyne and Wear

Modern day double glazed frames can be manufactured in pretty much any colour by using uPVC materials. For a more modern feel you could opt for aluminium, or for the classic look - timber frames units. Today's aluminium windows can be coloured to blend in with your home and no longer have to be a bland, grey and rather dull looking frame for your windows.

All new double glazed frames must display the CE approval mark. This mark should be plainly visible inside the sealed glass panel and on the frame, and is proof of the standard of both the glass and the frame itself. All windows and doors produced in Great Britain and the EU, must be marked with the CE logo. If your Whitley Bay double glazing firm does not use CE approved components they could possibly be made using less stringent standards of production and low quality materials. It is always best to demand that the company only uses products that come with a CE approval and are backed up with a guarantee.


For your new window installation in Whitley Bay you can ask friends or acquaintances to recommend local double glazing specialists.

A free, no obligation quote will be provided by an established double glazing installer, so that you're able to pick the right solution for your home. Accurate measurements of your window and door frames will be obtained by the salesperson, so you will receive a definitive price for the work. Bear in mind, there may well be room for negotiation, if you are having your entire property in Whitley Bay double glazed.

Once you decide on a double glazing company in Whitley Bay and are happy with the quoted price, your new windows will be made-to-order. The manufacturing process could take anything from several days to a few weeks, and is going to be determined by your frame type, the design of window, the amount of doors and windows you require and the opening options. An installation time frame will then be arranged between you and the company, which should include a provision for getting planning permission when necessary.

It may be necessary to get planning permission if your house is close to a National Park, has a restrictive covenant, is a listed building or is in a conservation area. Being aware of all the legal necessities and requirements, an experienced double glazing specialist will advise you about any local restrictions and will have previously done work in the Whitley Bay area.

The time required to fit your double glazing will naturally be determined by exactly how many windows you've ordered. It typically takes under 3 hours to put in a typical double glazed window. This time will also include removing the old window and frame, and preparing the void into which the new window will sit. An average home in Whitley Bay can be completed over a couple of days with the minimum of disruption to you.


Your chosen double glazing company in Whitley Bay should at least be a member of one recognised trade association such as Trustmark, the Glass and Glazing Federation (GGF), the DGCOS (Double Glazing Conservatory Ombudsman Scheme) or FENSA.

Installing Cat Flaps in Double Glazing

If a cat is a part of your household, you may have considered installing a cat flap in your double glazing. This is a great way to let your cat come and go as they please, without you having to keep opening and closing the door for them.

It's important to remember, 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. It is best to hire a specialist cat flap fitter if you do not have the necessary experience for this kind of work.

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 may want to consider include a lock or a microchip reader. For example, you may want a cat flap with a lock to prevent other animals from entering your house, or a cat flap with a microchip reader to allow only your cat to enter your property.

Once you have chosen a cat flap, you should contact a specialist cat flap fitter. They'll visit your home to assess the situation and measure the space where the cat flap will be installed. They can also give you advice on the best kind of cat flap for your needs.

To preserve the double glazing unit's integrity and ensure the cat flap's proper installation, the cat flap installer will order a new double-glazed unit with a hole cut out for the cat flap.

The cat flap installer will return to your home in Whitley Bay to install the new double glazing unit once it has been delivered. This involves removing the old double glazing unit and installing the new one. The cat flap fitter then installs the cat flap in the hole cut into the double-glazed unit, thereby preserving the unit's integrity and ensuring proper installation.

The flap fitter will test the device to ensure proper operation and demonstrate its usage and settings. (47902 - Cat Flaps in Double Glazing)
