When it comes to repairs and refurbishing, many homeowners look for ways to cut costs. And while it is certainly possible to have less expensive glass installed throughout your home, working with a double glazing company will yield a number of benefits that will more than cover any additional cost. Consider the following to determine whether your home could benefit from double glazed glass—we are betting that it can!

#1: Better Heat Insulation

Ask any window specialist and they will surely say that perhaps the biggest added value you will get from installing new double glazed windows is that they offer better insulation. The thick panes will help your home stay warm in the winters and cool in the summers. Rooms with floor to ceiling glass are absolutely stunning and amazing to spend time in, so long as the temperature is right. Our conservatory specialists will make sure that these rooms are always kept comfortable, and are available for use year-round.

#2: Environmentally Friendly

Reducing your carbon footprint might not necessarily be on the top of your list when it comes to home renovations, but it’s certainly something that you can feel good about. Plus, by not letting air escape through your doors or windows, you reduce your energy consumption, which will subsequently save you money on utility bills, which is something pretty much everyone can get excited about!

#3: Added Security

Double glazed glass is more durable, making it less likely to be damaged during regular use or in the case of an attempted break-in. Older glass is much more flimsy and brittle, and cracks can happen just from closing a door a little too hard, resulting in repeated costs and repairs. Our window and door specialists can install new glass throughout your home that will keep your valuables protected from any outside threats or inside mishaps.

#4: Noise Reduction

As the name suggests, double glazed glass is thicker, which cuts down on the amount of travelling noise. This is an excellent addition to homes that may be close to very public or traffic-heavy areas. Another great benefit of installing new glass is that it can increase your privacy: keep your conversations between you and your dinner guests, not your nosy next-door neighbours. Our double glazing specialists can also make sure that you don’t earn a reputation as the house who is always playing loud music on weeknights.

#5: Increased Home Value

Installing new glass is an excellent way to quickly increase the value of your home. When it comes to reselling, this easy update will pay for itself multiple times over. As many prospective homebuyers enter the market, some will prefer modern layouts while others look for classic designs; however, everyone can agree that double glazed windows are the way to go.
