Our customers are commonly informed by our competitors that their timber windows need replacing to secure double glazing.
You can get the benefit of double glazed windows – better insulation for temperature and sound, for example – without the expense of changing your timber.
With a double-glazed window, you have two panes of glass with a sealed void between them. This void is sealed, vacuumed and then filled with the inert gas, argon. Argon is harmless and inactive, so that temperature changes outside are not transmitted inside as easily. This helps maintain the thermal performance of your home, so that fluctuations of heat and cold will not affect the internal temperature of your home. It also reduces noise by up to 40%. Increased light reflection also gives you more privacy.
Dr Rot will retrofit glass to maintain the look and feel of your home.
Importantly, this will also reduce condensation. Condensation is the ultimatum cause of timber rot, so double glazing is a way to rot-proof your home – this is what the Doctor knows best! We’re the specialists in retrofitting double-glazed windows.

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.”
