What is double glazing?

Double glazing is made up of two panes of glass separated by a cavity (small gap in-between). The cavity is filled with a layer of air or gas, which acts as a natural insulator. This element helps the window keep the home cooler in the summer and warmer in the winter.

Double glazing can typically be found in any good home improvement product such as windows, doors and conservatories. Triple glazing is also another option that is made up the same principle just with three panes of glass and two cavities.

When is the best time to buy replacement windows?

In general, we would suggest replacing your windows during spring. This is because spring often brings with it the desire for a fresh start and many of our customers begin to consider any home improvements for the summer months. Although spring is often considered the best time to buy replacement windows, the actual window installation isn't necessarily seasonal.
