Since the 1970s, double glazing has become the standard for windows in the UK. Its performance far exceeds that of single glazing in virtually every aspect. For this reason, we find it surprising how many homes in towns like Chelmsford, Epping, Maldon and others in the South East are still fitted with it. The double glazing of today is also much improved to that of 10 years ago so there’s plenty of reasons why you should upgrade the glazing on your Essex or East London home.Get a quote
Double glazing is made up of two glass panes that are separated by a cavity. This cavity is sometimes filled with air but it is usually filled up with an inert gas like Argon or Krypton. The combination of two panes of glass and the low thermal conductivity of inert gases insulates the home very well against noise and heat, especially compared to single glazing. Insulating the home in such a way has a number of excellent benefits for the homeowner.

As well as double glazing, we also offer high-performance triple glazing. Particularly popular with Essex and South East homes located near busy areas and main roads, the extra insulation that triple glazing provides does wonders for eliminating unwanted exterior noise.
Triple glazing typically offers lower u-values than double glazing. This means that triple glazing lets less heat pass through the glass, keeping more heat inside the home. Triple glazing also provides an extra deterrent against burglars looking for an easy target – it’s definitely not easy to break through two layers of glass, let alone three!
