Double Glazed Windows

You may have been told that you need to replace your timber windows to get double glazing.

Not so!

You don't need to change your timber windows to get double glazing.
  We can retro fit by replacing the glass with double glaze units that will maintain the style, quality and integrity of your home.

What are Double Glaze Units?

Double glaze units consist of 2 layers of glass with a fully seal space between that is vacuumed then filled with argon gas. 

Benefits of double glazing include:
- Noise reductions of 40%
- Thermal insulation of both heat and cold
- Increased light reflection enhances visual privacy and also heat reflection.
- Condensation can be halted with double glazing: (Condensation increases heat conductivity through the glass, then streaks down the glass to be absorbed into the timber to create mould and rot.)

Kill two birds with one stone; change to double glaze and fix the cause of timber window rot.

With experience and innovation, Dr Rot are specialists in retro fitting DGU's to existing windows.

Many of our clients have now converted all the windows in their home to DGU's resulting in greater energy efficiency and improved sound reduction.

Here's what one of our clients wrote

"Dr. Rot recently replaced all of our door and window glass with double glazing and also repaired all of our rotten timber frames. We are now loving living condensation free and enjoying the residual heat that is retained in the house overnight when we wake on these cold winter mornings. We really wanted a sustainable alternative to replacing all the frames and they were able to retro fit all the double glazing to our existing frames while carrying our the necessary repairs to the damaged frames."
