Double Glaze Existing Windows

Retrofitting Double-Glazed Windows in Melbourne?

Advances in technology can be very beneficial when it comes to renovating a property and adding double glazing is a perfect example. If this is an old building, as charming as it may look, previous owners and tenants may have found it less than ideal because during cooler, windy weather it was cold and draughty. Those are not words that should exist in connection with a building in this day and age, when windows and doors can be fitted with precision and double glazing keeps the cold air out and the warm air in. Draughty buildings are just not acceptable anymore, and if you are renovating, you can banish the problem at a stroke. There is another factor to consider, though. Retrofitting the existing windows with double glazing or opting for a complete replacement?

The Downside of Retrofitting Double-Glazed Windows in Melbourne

Double glazing can make a big difference in terms of comfort and lower fuel bills, but it needs to improve a building’s ambience without spoiling its appearance. Since double-glazing existing windows means replacing the window sash but maintaining the existing window frame, this comes with a major downside. Even though adding double glazing to existing windows has lower upfront costs, it means that the frame remains the same. Old existing frames especially wooden ones often show signs of rot, not only compromising the frame’s structural integrity but also its energy efficiency. A complete replacement with double glazed windows on the other hand means replacing the inefficient old sash and frame with great new ones for improved energy efficiency and overall health of the building. As a bonus, double glazing adds an element of soundproofing because good double-glazed units reduce noise penetration in the same way as they do with temperature. Read More
