From start to finish, I cannot recommend this company enough. Ty was extremely friendly and professional. Come to measure the windows we needed, I was surprised that no deposit was taken! Their time keeping was excellent, and they cleaned up afterwards. I sincerely wish this company all the best, their work is outstanding together with their customer service.

Should I Replace or Repair My Double Glazing?

This is a question that is commonly asked but trust us when we say that you will save money when you repair instead of replace. Did you know that the cost of replacing all of the windows on a three-bed semi property can cost £4,500 according to the Federation of Master Builders. This is a vast amount of money which is why it makes sense to repair windows that still have their structural integrity, especially if it’s just failed locks or handles that you are having issues with. This will ensure you can save money and still benefit from windows and doors that work perfectly.

Got Misty Windows? What is the Cause?

Double Glazed windows are designed with a range of features but they also come with a seal that helps to stop moisture from penetrating them. However, these seals can degrade over time and this results in an increase in condensation building up between the panes. You will also find that any south-facing windows will suffer more due to exposure to the sun. So, this might leave you only needing repairs on some windows and not others. If you do notice that you have misty windows, then now is the time to get in touch with us.

How Will I Know That My Window Glass Needs To Be Replaced?

When we have double glazing installed in our properties, we want to know that the glass and the units themselves are going to stand the test of time.

Whilst, for the most part, these units are going to last, there are still times when they may develop an issue or fault that means that they don’t perform, look or work the way that they used to, or that you want them to.

But, considering that you are not an expert in uPVC windows, how will you know that the glass within these window units is going to need to be replaced?

The Signs That Your Double-Glazing Unit Glass Needs To Be Replaced

One of the main signs that something is wrong with your double glazing is that there is a build-up of condensation between the panes of glass. This is down to the seal, that keeps the moisture out of the unit, breaking down. This can just happen over time and is often part of the general wear and tear of double-glazed window units.

However, this doesn’t mean that you should just ignore the issue. When you spot the fogging which is a tell-tale sign of condensation, then you must take action straight away!

Energy Rated Glass Can Save Money on Your Energy Bills At Your Property

You can save money on your energy bills by installing energy efficient glass in your doors and windows. The latest technology allows for the glass to reflect the heat back into your property, whilst also reflecting UV light and solar heat from the sun back outside. This keeps your house cooler in the summer and warmer in the winter. According to the Energy Saving Trust, an average 3 bed semi can save around £195 a year on your heating bill by installing energy efficient glass.

    We Cover Hitchin And Surrounding Areas

    Hitchin, a charming town with a population of approximately 35,000, earned a place in history when it became a surprising stop for Her Majesty the Queen during her Diamond Jubilee tour on June 14, 2012. This unexpected royal visit caused quite a stir.

    Hitchin established an annual event in 1992 that showcased an array of international acts and music. The festival initially unfolded within the Hitchin Town Hall before taking to the streets in 1996, eventually earning the title of the largest free music festival in the United Kingdom. A family-friendly affair, the festival drew around 20,000 visitors, but safety concerns prompted its relocation to the grounds of Hitchin Priory with an associated admission charge. Regrettably, in 2018, the beloved two-day musical celebration was cancelled.

    Hitchin also played a starring role on the small screen as scenes from the BBC drama series "Doctor Foster" were filmed there. Signs posted in the town center in September 2016 heralded the impending filming of the series' second season. The show's first season finale, with an impressive viewership of over ten million, solidified Hitchin's status as a notable backdrop for television drama.

    The historical fabric of Hitchin includes being the pioneer in introducing 'black bags' for refuse collection in 1960, a groundbreaking initiative by the Hitchin Urban District Council. Hitchin proudly claims Jack Wilshere, a former midfielder for West Ham United and Arsenal.

    St. Mary's Church, standing tall as the largest parish church in Hertfordshire, serves as an impressive landmark. Hitchin was renowned for its thriving corn market at the Market Place for an impressive 300 years, with the historic corn exchange now making way for the vibrant Pitcher & Piano.

    The Times, in March 2013, ranked Hitchin the 9th best town to reside in the United Kingdom. Notably, Hitchin also boasts a rich historical legacy, being one of the oldest continuously occupied urban centres in Hertfordshire, with traces of Roman activity such as the Roman villa at Purwell and the nearby ancient Icknield Way.
