How to Retrofit Your Windows with Double Glazing

Double glazing your windows and doors will lead to a warmer, dryer, more comfortable home – but you may be wondering what exactly the process involves. Lots of people in the Bay of Plenty and the Waikato are keen to improve their home but want to better understand the process of retrofitting aluminium joinery with double glazed glass. If that sounds like you, here’s a breakdown of what the double glazing entails.

Step 1 – Assess and measure

You’ve been in touch with our team about installing double glazing into your existing windows. Now what?

The first step is for us to come round to your house and assess what the project will entail. All houses are different, from the age of the home to the quality of the joinery to the layout of the windows. We need to pay you a visit so we can measure all the windows and doors that you wanted double glazed and get a thorough understanding of your home so we can find the best solution and give you an idea of what to expect.

Step 2 – Quote

Once we’ve measured all your windows and doors, we will go away and calculate a quote for the cost of your double glazing. Alongside the fee, this quote will explain everything your house needs when it comes to upgrading your windows and doors, and an expected timeline of the duration of your project.

Step 3 – Confirmation

If you’re happy and on board with the plans and the quote, it’s time for you to give the project the okay and pay a 50 percent deposit. Then the fun part can begin!

Step 4 – Ordering the supplies

Now is the time to order the required glass, aluminium and hardware we will need to update your windows and doors. Then our double glazing specialists get to work in the factory using their experience, training and leading technology to create your home’s customised windows and doors.

Step 5 and 6 – Installation and clean up

Because staying tidy is an ongoing part of installation, it’s really two steps in one here. Once we have all the necessary supplies, it’s time for our team to install your windows and doors. We work as neatly and efficiently as possible, staying out of your way as much as we can and cleaning up thoroughly afterwards, including taking away those old windows and doors, so your house looks good as new. It’s then time for the remaining payment and the newly double glazed windows and doors and yours to enjoy.
