Posted April 11, 2023 by in Home

If you are losing thousands of dollars due to poor home insulation, or your old timer windows have seen better days, this is a time to think about installing custom-made double-glazed windows. So, how does a person go about doing this? Please read on.

Sourcing a double-glazing company

There are no off the shelf solutions with double glazed windows and doors, rather each unit is made to fit the aperture. Whether external doors or double glazed sliding windows, the units are made in the factory according to the precise measurements taken by the surveyor. When you contact a local window company, they would send a representative to your home and you sit down together and choose designs, materials and colours.

Once you are happy with the design options, the representative can quote for the project, which is a fully inclusive price.

Factory fabrication

Once you have made an agreement with the window company, they send a surveyor to your home and his job is to measure accurately, the sizes of all window and door apertures. This data is used to manufacture the frames and the sealed double-glazed units and an installation date is set.

Onsite installation

Typically, a team of 3 people would install a houseful of windows and doors, which can be completed in 2 days. Each window is removed and the new unit screwed in, with silicone filling and a new window board. The team are very experienced and when the installation is complete, you, the customer, are invited to inspect the work.

Made to the highest standards

Double glazed windows are manufactured to the highest Australian standards, using the very best materials and with a professional installation, you have the best set of windows and doors. The long warranty offered by the supplier is a reflection of this quality and when you see your next energy bill, you’ll be very glad that you had the foresight to install energy efficient double-glazed windows.

Security locking

All windows have individual security locks; a burglar wouldn’t bother trying to gain access to a property with double glazed windows, they know only too well that these windows and doors are impenetrable.

If you would like to learn more about the benefits of double glazing, Google can take you to a leading Australian window company and you can invite a technician to your home to discuss the many options.
