Double Glazing

Retrofit Double Glazing

Retrofitting offers a valuable solution for upgrading from single glazing to more efficient double glazing.

Opting for retrofitting can yield significant savings on your renovation expenses. Rather than opting for a complete window replacement—which can be quite costly—we seamlessly replace your current single glazed glass with a factory-sealed, energy-efficient double glazed unit, providing a more economical choice for enhancing your home.

During our process, we make minor adjustments to the frame, such as introducing a new aluminium or timber bead, to accommodate the new double glazing unit. This ensures that the aesthetics remain largely unchanged, allowing you to preserve the unique character of your home.

Our double glazed units are meticulously sealed in the factory and then installed onsite. The installation process is efficient and hassle-free, enabling you to swiftly enjoy the benefits of your upgraded double glazing.

For those seeking the pinnacle of energy efficiency, our high-performance Low E technology can be seamlessly integrated with your double glazing. This technology significantly reduces the need for heating and cooling appliances, thereby lowering energy consumption and subsequent power bills. For instance, our advanced Low E technology can achieve up to 79%* better heat retention compared to single glazing, ensuring a warmer and drier home environment during winter months.

Additionally, for regions susceptible to overheating in the summer, we offer a solar control glass option that can reduce up to 63%* of the sun’s heat, effectively maintaining a cooler indoor temperature.

It’s important to note that retrofit double glazing differs from lower-cost alternatives, such as clip-on additions. Our retrofit double glazing constitutes a permanent replacement for single glazing, featuring factory-sealed double glazed units that are custom-fitted into your existing frames. Unlike clip-on solutions, our purpose-built double glazed units are tailored to meet the unique requirements of each home.

In conclusion, retrofitting offers a seamless and efficient method for enhancing your home’s energy efficiency and comfort, providing long-term benefits for you and your family.
