Aluminium retrofit double glazing in modern home

Aluminium retrofit double glazing

Aluminium retrofit double glazing

Enhance your home comfort and retrofit your current single glazed aluminium windows and doors with new double glazing for the ultimate performance upgrade.

What is aluminium retrofit?

  • Retrofit double glazing is a great solution if you want a cost-effective option for upgrading your window performance without the cost of new joinery (full replacement of frames and glass).

  • Our aluminium retrofit process involves removing your existing thermally inefficient single glass, and replacing it with a new factory sealed high performing double glazed unit.

  • In order to fit the new double glazed unit into your existing frame, we replace the existing aluminium bead with a new aluminium profile that is colour matched to your current joinery, creating more space to allow your new double glazing to fit into your existing frame.

  • In the case of sliding doors, adapters may be necessary (depending on the system's age) but upgrading them is also a straightforward process.

  • Our retrofit double glazing systems are compatible with most aluminium joinery systems - it is rare for us to come across a home that we can’t retrofit (these instances are typically for some of the early 1970’s systems). Talk to our retrofit specialist and they can advise further.
