Retrofit Double Glazing Old Wooden Windows

Retrofit Double Glazing Old Wooden Windows

A question we are regularly asked is “can I retrofit double glazing onto my old wooden windows?” And our answer is usually a resounding yes! As New Zealanders we love the look and feel of wooden windows as they help reflect a home’s timeless, classic character.

The problem that comes with old wooden windows is often dampness, condensation and wetness on the glass, and mould on the timber that puts us at risk of illness. While these windows can look beautiful, the condensation is a pain to endlessly wipe and often poor seals create draughts and noise internally.

The Solution to Retrofitting Timber Windows

Because of the problems with older wooden windows and the demand to keep them in our homes rather than replace them with aluminium windows, Thermoglaz has developed the best retrofit double glazing system available for wooden windows.

Single glazed windows are the most significant source of heat loss in a home, so we have worked for over 30 years to ensure our custom made solutions retain the charm of your wooden windows whilst drastically reducing the noise, condensation and increase warmth in the colder months.
