On this page we going to give you some information that will help you if you are looking for double glazing repair or you are trying to find out whether you actually need it. This page will deal specifically with your window seals and how to tell if they have failed.
How Double Glazing Works:
For many years a single pane of glass would suffice to protect you from the elements outside. Now, you will find it difficult to find a single pane window. Replacing the single pane was of course double glazing and even triple glazing.
Double glazed windows are two panes of glass which are kept inside an airtight frame. This helps to guard you against the weather and it can also help to stop heat from escaping.
The problem that it brings is with the seals – these can break down over time and eventually will need replacing.
