Energy Efficient New Double-Glazing

Kirkcaldy homeowners with old glazing, or who have never had double-glazing installed before, will be losing a lot of heat through their windows and therefore have higher energy bills. GreenCastle double-glazing is low U value and improves your home’s thermal efficiency, having a positive impact on heating costs. 

With double-glazing consisting of two panes of glass (or three in the case of triple-glazed windows) and an insulating barrier of gas between the glazing, this ensures that more heat is retained in the home. This improved energy efficiency helps keep heating bills in check as you won’t have to have the heating on for as long.

Noise Reduction

Double glazing in modern Dundee home

Installing double-glazed windows or doors will make a significant difference to how much external noise enters your Kirkcaldy home. Double and triple glazing significantly reduces external noise – particularly beneficial if you are affected by noise from neighbours or traffic.

Double-glazing absorbs sound vibrations and sound also struggles to pass through the frames themselves, leading to overall noise reductions of around 65%.

Boost Home Security

Double-glazing improves and the accompanying locking systems improve home security to ensure your Kirkcaldy home is secure. Unlike standard single-glazing, double-glazed windows are much more difficult to break without making significant noise!

Our windows have steel-reinforced uPVC frames as standard, making forced entry very difficult. To further enhance security, we supply Yale multi-point locking systems with both our windows and doors.

Increase The Value Of Your Home

Installing double-glazed windows and doors can be a smart investment in your home, especially if you decide to sell up at some point. New double-glazed external doors such as French doors, patio doors will make a significant difference to the kerbside appeal of your home.

Double-glazing gives you a better chance of selling your home at a much better sale price. It’s estimated that having double-glazing products installed in place of single glazing can add around 10% to the resale value of a property.

UV Protection

Despite what you may think, Kirkcaldy does get some sun hours which can impact on the wellbeing of your family. UV (ultraviolet) rays can penetrate into homes through windows and cause issues such as premature ageing of skin as well as damage to home furnishings and fabrics.

With built-in UV screening, double-glazed windows stop up to 99% of ultraviolet rays getting into homes in Kirkcaldy, making them a welcome home improvement.

Reduced Condensation

Reducing noise with double glazing

Condensation is commonly a problem for homes with single glazing or failing double-glazed units. The resultant mould growth and damp patches can affect health and lead to respiratory illnesses. Over time, condensation can also cause structural damage to your home.

New double-glazing to replace your existing windows can reduce condensation significantly, sometimes by as much as 85%.

Easy To Maintain

Looking after your GreenCastle windows and doors is straightforward. Unlike traditional timber window frames, uPVC or composite frames don’t require periodic maintenance such as repainting and varnishing. It’s simply a case of a wipe down of the frames with water and a mild detergent.

Double-Glazing Kirkcaldy FAQs

Most frequent questions and answers

You generally don’t need planning permission for double-glazed windows or doors. However, if you’re installing double-glazing in a listed building or in a conservation area you’ll typically require listed-building consent or planning permission.

If you are planning on making double-glazing your next home improvement investment, we can advise you if you are unsure if planning permission is likely to be an issue at your property in Kirkcaldy.

The lifespan of double-glazing depends on factors such as the quality of the installation and materials, and how well the windows are maintained.

All our products are high quality and should last at least 20 years. UPVC windows and doors for example, will last longer if your property is in a sheltered location that doesn’t leave them overly exposed to extreme weather. Some double-glazing may last up to 50 years.

Regular cleaning and maintenance can extend the lifetime of your double-glazed units. Clean the glass and frames and sills with a soft cloth or sponge and a mild detergent. This will remove dirt without scratching the surfaces. 

Don’t use a high-pressure hose to clean your window exteriors. This can damage the seals and cause leakage. 

Window maintenance includes checking the condition of locks and seals frequently and ensuring any necessary repairs are done promptly.

Whether you need to replace a double-glazed window or have it repaired depends on what’s causing the problem. If the integrity of the sealed unit has become compromised, you’ll usually need a full window replacement. 

If the problem is less serious, such as small cracks in the frame or damaged hardware, these issues can often be repaired. 

The price of double-glazing varies depending on the size of the window or door, quality of materials, level of customisation, and whether preparatory structural work like opening up a wall is needed. New installation composite doors and windows are generally a more expensive option than UPVC windows and UPVC doors.
