Double glazing is one of the best investments homeowners can make when it comes to improving their home’s insulation and energy efficiency. Its ability to prevent heat loss from the home helps to save on heating costs during winter, while also controlling heat movement in both directions so that homes don’t overheat in the summer. It also offers a range of aesthetics to suit the style of any home, from sleek composite doors that mimic the look of wood without the drawbacks to stylish bi-fold windows that open seamlessly.
The cost of double glazing cardiff varies depending on the type and size of window or door that is chosen. A small casement window, for example, can be installed in just an hour or two and may only cost PS150 to PS300 (excluding installation). Sliding windows that move horizontally across one or more sides typically require a little bit more work and will usually cost around PS250 to PS1000.
Aside from the benefits of a warmer, more energy efficient home, double glazing also reduces external noise pollution, which is particularly beneficial for those who live near busy roads or urban centres. The insulating layer between the glass panes works to absorb and dampen sound vibrations, creating a quieter living space.
While most double glazed windows are made from durable materials, they can still be prone to cracking and need to be treated carefully to minimise this risk. If your double glazed windows are starting to show signs of wear and tear, you should contact a professional glazing specialist to see how they can be repaired or replaced. This will ensure that they continue to perform as intended and keep your home warm, safe and comfortable.
