Double Glazing Your Sashes
We are often asked if it is possible to double glaze existing sash windows and generally the answer is yes.
Approaches to double glazing
Traditional sashes are single glazed, with the glass on the outside, they don't easily convert to having a double glazed unit installed, with the glass rebated on the inside.
We find that in most instances, it is better to start again with the actual sashes.
We build quality copies that match the original windows, but are designed to take double glazed units.

Is double glazing the right solution?
When thinking about double glazing, we need to keep in mind the historic nature of properties.
In many instances, double glazing is not appropriate. Indeed in most listed buildings you will not be given permission to double glaze the sash windows.
However there are other options. Combinations of blinds, lined curtains, shutters and secondary glazing, along with our cost-effective draught proofing servicedraught proofing service can achieve the same - and in some instances better - heat and sound control.
