Double Glazed Sash Windows
Having your sash windows double glazed is easily done and provides a neat solution when you need improved performance to save heat and reduce noise but you don’t want to spoil the character of your house.
The dimensions of the existing sash windows are carefully measured and then replicated as closely as possible in our workshops. We take great care to copy all of the existing features, including any decorative horns so that your new sashes will fit in with the existing style of the other houses in your street.
If thermal insulation is of great importance to you then this can be improved by the use of argon gas within the double glazed units. We do not fit this ordinarily as most people are more than happy with the performance of the standard double glazed units but if you would like to explore the additional benefit of argon filled units please ask.
If sound insulation is the most important consideration for you this can be improved by the use of acoustic glass.
Acoustic glass is much denser and heavier than standard glass. Very occasionally, windows which have been fitted with acoustic glass will not be able to slide up and down fully. This is because there may not be enough room within the existing window box for all the additional weight needed.
Decoration of your windows
All double glazed sashes that we fit are supplied fully finished in our workshops with top quality microporous paint. You should not need to paint the sashes for at least 5 years. Please note: this does not include your existing box sash frames.
