Double Glazing & Window Replacement
Modern double glazing is specifically fabricated to be hardwearing and durable with little necessary maintenance. However, sometimes accidents happen and you may find yourself in need of a repaired or replaced window. The installers we work with offer repair and replacement services and will have your windows and doors looking as good as new.
Repairs can be carried out on broken locks, broken internal beading, condensation trapped in windows, misting and cracks or dents in frames.
Sometimes, however, a repair job is not appropriate and the unit will need to be replaced. We work with honest companies, which means they would never suggest you get a replacement if they thought that a repair would be possible.
How Much Does it Cost to Install Double Pane Windows?
When you receive an online quote, consult our price tables or use our online cost calculator, the price you receive will be the cost of the windows including installation. This ensures that you will not be hit with additional surprise costs further along in your installation.

Ultimately however, installing your own windows can be a difficult and time consuming activity. You will also have to deal with the building regulations which your installer would normally sort out on your behalf. The savings made from purchasing supply only windows are not always necessarily worth the trouble of installing them yourself.
