Aspects to Bear in Mind When Looking for Double Glazing


If you have yet to install double glazing in your home, you are definitely in the minority, as most homeowners have already replaced their old windows with double glazed units. There are many companies that specialise in double glazing, and prior to making any decisions, here are some important aspects to consider.

  • Style – Ideally, you want replacement windows that look like they belong, and with so many designs to choose from, that should not be an issue. There are timber-grain finishes with UPVC, which is great if your home has a rustic look, and with leaded lights and Georgian style windows, you are not limited in style choices.
  • Window Openings – Just because your existing windows open in the traditional side hinge way, that doesn’t mean you have to follow suit. You can choose from tilt and turn, sliding and sash type openings, whichever you prefer. With expert Belvedere double glazing installers on the job, you can be sure of a first-class installation.
  • Choice of Frame Materials – This requires some careful consideration, and with UPVC or aluminium, you have a maintenance free solution. Of course, you might prefer to look of real timber, and most double-glazing suppliers can create bespoke windows and doors in a range of quality timbers. There is a degree of maintenance with timber framed windows, which is a small price to pay if you have your heart set on timber.

If you take into account all of the above, your new windows will be perfect and will complement the property.
