It’s safe to say that double glazing has had its fair share of bad press over the years. The stigma of ‘white plastic’ has put many people off converting from single to double glazed panes resulting in cold, draughty houses and higher fuel bills.
However, times have changed and growing concerns for rising energy costs and environment issues means that double glazing is a practical and necessary solution for reducing the carbon footprint.
Building Regulations state that all homes need to be energy efficient and comply with thermal performance and safety standards. This is particularly important when it comes to buying and selling a property.
Fortunately, double glazing manufacturers have been working hard to produce state of the art, modern double glazing options that are aesthetically pleasing, energy efficient and provide maximum security. Double glazing has been revolutionised and is now a popular choice for properties of any age.
Here’s a look at the 3 most popular double glazing trends today.
