Company News


Double glazing is such an attractive proposition because replacing your standard windows and doors with double glazed upvc windows and doors can possibly cut your heat loss in half. It also helps to reduce noise from outside and eliminates internal condensation.

Try to obtain 2 or three quotes from local companies.  Each of the companies should be able to show you a range of double glazing windows and doors in their showroom and on their website.

When researching companies that offer double glazing, there are a few things to keep in mind:
1) Are you allowed to choose from a full range of products or just a few styles?
2) Is the work guaranteed and if so, guaranteed by whom?
3) Can they provide you with a list of satisfied customers in your area?
4) Are they a member of a professional body or association?
If the company is able to cover these points to your satisfaction, then that is a great start – now get a detailed quote for your replacement windows and doors.

Once you have decided which company will be providing your double glazing, UPVC replacement windows, French doors, exterior doors or conservatory, then it’s imperative that you receive a formal contract with details of the work to be done.

In conclusion, when replacing your windows and doors with UPVC double glazing, you should take the same care that you would for any other substantial purchase. By carrying out proper research on different double glazing companies, you will most likely find yourself happy with the end result – which should add value to your home as well as improve comfort and reduce heating bills.
