Installing Double Glazing – A Complete Guide to the Process

Installing Double Glazing – A Complete Guide to the Process

If you are thinking of replacing all your wooden windows with stunning uPVC double-glazed windows, you are probably wondering about the process, and with that in mind, here are some details about the process of sourcing and installing replacement double-glazed windows.

Step 1: Sourcing a double-glazing company – Of course, there are many replacement window providers in Sydney and Melbourne; we recommend inviting at least 3 to quote for the project. Contact Thermal Double Glazing and arrange for a rep to visit you on one day, and another the next day, then finally, invite one more company to quote. Once you have the 3 written quotations, you can make an informed decision.

Step 2: Choosing opening styles & other features – The visiting rep would have many catalogues to help you choose frame material, opening styles and colours. All windows would have security locking as standard, while interior window cills are optional. There are many features such as vents, extractor fans, tinted glass and others and when you are with the sales rep, you can decide what features you wish to include.

Step 3: Surveying – Typically, within a few days of reaching an agreement, a surveyor would be sent to your home to measure up all windows; all units are made to measure, so these measurements must be very exact. The surveyor would review everything at this stage to ensure there are no misunderstandings, then he or she would probably give you an installation date.

Step 4: Installation – It is normal to wait a few weeks before installation and the supplier would give you instructions on how best to prepare. It could take up to 4 days for a complete house to be completed; usually, a team of 3-4 technicians work together and when the installation is complete, you will be invited to inspect the work.

Step 5: After sales support – It is normal for the sales rep who first visited you to return post-installation to check that all is well and this would be a few days after the installation to give you time to open and close all windows. Should you ever have any issues, call the rep and they will arrange for a service team to pay you a visit.

So, there you have it, the replacement window process from start to finish and we hope that this helps you to prepare for the coming project when you can transform your home with stylish and elegant uPVC double-glazed windows.
