Double Glazing

Double Glazing

Double Glazing is made from two pieces of glass sealed together with an air space in between.  This insulates the glass, and stops the cold or hot from escaping from the room.   We can replace timber or aluminium windows with Double Glazing.  We can retro fit Double Glazing to your existing windows.

Whether you are looking to keep your home warmer, quieter or reduce condensation, we can recommend the best combination of glass types to meet your needs.
Double Glazing can perform many other benefits, including:

  • Warmer in winter
  • Cooler in summer
  • Reduces condensation
  • Reduces energy usage
  • Reduces noise
  • Enhances resale value

There are over one million homes in New Zealand with little or no insulation, and even modern, well insulated homes are still losing up to 50% of their heat through single-glazed windows. New building standards now mean new homes will be fitted with double glazing recognising that single-glazed windows are notoriously poor at any insulation as single glass panels transfer cold very easily, reducing the temperature inside, thus requiring a greater amount of energy to maintain a comfortable temperature.
Our high performance double glazing can significantly reduce heat loss, and make for a warmer, drier, healthier home for you and your family. Double glazed windows will help keep generated heat inside, keeping your home at a more consistent temperature – cutting down your power costs.

Retro-Fit Double Glazing
Retro-Fit double glazing is the process of using your existing single glazed windows and doors, and replacing with new components for double-glazed units. The process is quick and unobtrusive. We can match colours, and fit into most existing window systems.
