When deciding to replace the current windows in your home, it goes without saying that you will have lots of different things to consider. From the style of window to the colour of the frame, there are many different options to choose from and you will want to ensure that you choose the very best combinations for your property. One factor that is often overlooked by homeowners when choosing replacement windows is the many glazing options that they have.
The glazing choice you make for your window will undoubtedly impact the whole design and you will want to ensure that as well as looking good, your windows are energy efficient, maintain your privacy and increase your security. So, to help anyone who is currently trying to design their perfect replacement windows, our team here at Premier Windows have put together a list of things to consider when choosing between the different glazing options available.
What are the issues with your current windows?
The majority of people are looking into replacement windows because there is an issue with their current windows, whether it is problems such as condensation or heat loss. Highlighting the issues you’re having will help you to then choose a glazing option that will prevent you from experiencing them again with your new replacement windows.
Does your property have any restrictions regarding glazing?
If you live in an older property or in a conservation area, you may be told that you’re unable to have some types of windows and glazing options. It isn’t uncommon for people living in these properties/areas to be unable to install regular double or triple glazing and instead, you may want to look into secondary slimline glazed windows, they are the perfect solution.
Which rooms are the windows going to be installed in?
You may find that you want different glazing in different rooms. For example, whilst you may be happy with standard double glazing in the living room, it is likely that you will require some form of obscure glass in your bathrooms. Different types of glazing can be used to maintain privacy in your home, so consider this when choosing replacement windows.
Do you have a particular budget in mind?
Whenever you’re undertaking home improvements it is important to have a budget in mind. Think about how much you have to spend on your replacement windows because this may influence your glazing choices. You may find you can afford triple glazed instead of double glazed windows or premium obscure glass instead of the standard collection.
Are you experiencing any issues with outdoor noise?
Outdoor noise is a big issue for lots of homeowners, especially if you live near an airport or on a busy main road. The glazing options that you choose can help reduce outdoor noise so, if this is a big issue for you then make sure you’re looking into the best glazing in this regard. Often, triple glazed windows are considered the best for reducing outdoor noise.
