Retro Double Glazing Wooden Windows
Double Glazing Existing Wooden Windows
As New Zealanders we love the look and feel of our beautiful old character homes, and maintaining that character is important – especially when it comes to the windows. Windows are the “eyes” to a house, framing your key areas whilst letting in the precious sunlight and fresh breeze. Wooden/timber-framed windows have an almost magical appeal, while at the same time they can be cold and draughty, sucking out expensive heat and letting in draughts and noise. This isn’t to mention the endless wiping required due to condensation and increased risk of illness from cold homes.
This led Thermoglaz to develop the best retrofit double glazing system available today for wooden windows, to create new comfort levels through custom made solutions, while retaining the original character and charm of the wood. We have installed hundreds of retrofitted double glazing solutions in residential homes and commercial offices in Christchurch and Canterbury. Our customers rave about noticeable reductions in noise and condensation, and increased thermal insulation and warmth in the harsh NZ Winter.
