When should you upgrade the double glazing for your Kent home?

As we head towards the (hopefully) warmer days of summer, there is probably no better time to have a good look at the glazing around your home to see if it’s fit for purpose. But why now, when we’re not worrying as much about keeping warm?

Well, if your windows have been letting in draughts or have regularly been full of condensation over winter, you’ll have noticed that they just not performing as well as they might have done in the past. And just as spring turns into summer, autumn quickly tuns into winter – and another wet and chilly season with old windows that aren’t fit for purpose.

The motto is ‘make hay while the sun shines’ – so let’s look at some of the reasons for deciding to have your windows replaced in time for the year’s end.

  • Energy efficiency

All the talk these days is about saving energy – for financial as well as environmental reasons, particularly during the recent fuel crisis and higher energy bills. Single glazing and older double glazed units can be highly inefficient, losing you both heat and money. By contrast, modern double glazing offers outstanding thermal efficiency, draught proofing and ventilation. For example, our popular uPVC casement windows are very low maintenance, yet offer incredible energy performance, keeping your home at a comfortable temperature and reducing heating bills at a stroke.

  • Condensation control

Waking up to windows covered in condensation is – or should be – a thing of the past. Some of us might be old enough to remember when ice would form because of this condensation, making chilly winter mornings particularly unpleasant! Condensation can also occur inside older double glazed units that have failed, so if this is happening it really is time to think about replacement windows. Our double glazing features Argon gas-filled sealed units and black warm-edge spacer bars, keeping condensation firmly at bay while providing the best value for money on the market. For example, our tilt and turn range excels in energy efficiency, sound insulation, and space optimisation, making them a popular choice for those seeking a blend of functionality and aesthetic appeal.

  • Aesthetic Appeal

There was a time when all double glazing units looked exactly the same. Not now. Of course, uPVC frames still come in the classic white finish but today there is much more scope for variation. Take our sliding sash window range. These are constructed using the traditional styles of the Georgian and Victorian eras and can be coloured to match your house or the area you live in. For homes in conservation areas that are subject to building regulations, our sliding sash windows are a perfect example of how to achieve a traditional aesthetic using modern technology. These windows can be finished in wood-effect colours including Rosewood and Golden Oak, enhancing the overall look of your Kent home.

  • Noise reduction

Beyond weather-related benefits, double glazing significantly reduces outdoor noise intrusion. Traffic sounds, neighbourhood chatter, and other disturbances are muffled, creating a quieter and more serene indoor atmosphere. If peace and tranquillity matter to you, upgrading your windows is a wise choice. Our flush sash windows, for example, are a classic design, but they can be tailored to suit all styles of home, even those close to main roads, railway lines, under flight paths and other sources of noise.

  • Excellent security features

Modern double-glazed windows come equipped with advanced locking systems, multi-point locks, and toughened glass. These features enhance the security of your home, providing peace of mind. Whether you live in a bustling city or a quiet suburb, investing in secure windows is essential. We work with a range of companies and organisations including Yale, Pilkington Glass and Secured By Design to create the very best in window security for your home and family.

  • Kerb appeal

Having new double glazing fitted immediately improves your home’s ‘kerb appeal’ – i.e. how attractive it looks to prospective buyers. If you’re planning to sell your home in the future, upgrading your windows will help your home to stand out in a crowded market and might even increase its value. Having new or replacement double glazing is an investment that pays off both in comfort and resale potential.
