DIY Method on Double Glazing Windows Installation.

by Guest on Apr 16, 2010

Double Glazed windows are an ideal asset to have to your home. Double glazing has long been associated with health benefits, as well as heat retention which are very popular with people in the United Kingdom. The draught prevention and noise reduction double glazing presents has contributed to the magnified popularity of double glazing in the home. Additionally, double glazing can also offer a greater sense of security with it's framework and installation sturdiness via it's lock-in systems.

Double glazed windows are usually quite simple to install if you choose to do a DIY. However, the benefits of choosing an installation professional safeguard you from any potential errors that may arise from doing a DIY job.

Note: If you do decide to choose an installation professional, you will want to ensure that the person is FENSA registered to ensure the installation is in line with building and council regulations.

Before moving forward with the installation, the homeowner should consider whether or not the window that you have is an outside cill. Also the location of the window is quite important also. Whether the window cill will be facing a drain as well.

Secondly, the person who is installing the new double glazing window needs to know what type of window is being replaced. If the window is an old sash window, you will find that you will probably have to replace the boxes.

Note: If you are in a conservation area, you will need to check with your local council for permissions associated with installing double glass windows.

Another thing to consider is the supply of window that is provided to be installed in the window frame.

METHOD One method of installing the double glazed window is by: 1. Fitting the window into the frame in which the double glazed window will be installed. 2. Spray foam around the window to hold the double glazed window in position. 3. The brickwork will need to be fixed with brass screws. 4. Upon placing the screws, trim off the excess foam, then seal the frame on both sides. 5. If you have a number 10 mason master drill bit, red plugs and number 10 screws, then screw 2 screws on each side into a depth of 50mm.

This is a simplified installation procedure for DIY double glazing installation for windows. When doing a DIY job, it is best to consider the advantages that should be gained through doing a good job. If there are concerns that the job may not be done up to the standard required, it would be in the best interest to have a professional complete the installation procedure to ensure all the structural requirements are done correctly and the benefits are reaped to your advantage.
