We come and visit your house and give you a realistic assessment on what you can do and how you can do it. We will identify problems that you may not have thought off. We also provide advice on the energy efficiency of other parts of your home such as insulation and draught protection. Unless these issues are addressed first, you are unlikely to notice the improvement from double glazing. We can also provide general advice on Solar Panels. The cost for this assessment is $100 and is refundable if you decide to buy more than $1,000 of product.
We will also identify windows that are not worth double glazing. This will normally be rooms that are unheated or are small in area.
At the same time, we will measure all your windows and provide a quote for the double glazed units plus advice on installation. We offer a range of services. Indicative costs for homes in Victoria based are:-
• Low-E toughened glass sheets to do secondary glazing ($130 per square metre or $2,600 for a house with 20 square metres of glass).
• Double glazed units with 2 sheets of 4 mm plain glass & Argon ($175 per square metre or $3,500 for a house with 20 square metres of glass).
• Double glazed units with Low-E glass & Argon ($245 per square metre or $4,900 for a house with 20 square metres of glass).
There is also a charge for delivery of $120 for the Metro areas of Melbourne and Sydney.
Our most common unit has a 12mm gap between the sheets of glass (total thickness of 20 mm). We also offer gaps from 6 to 16 mm in 2 mm increments for the same price. The total thickness varies from 14 to 24 mm.
We are now selling argon filled units out of Sydney. We don't do home visits to Sydney, but we can work with you to get all of the necessary measurements. Email us for details.
We also provide non standard items such as tinted glass or toughened glass.
What we find, is that all jobs are different. You will find that we are flexible and are willing to tailor a package that meets your requirements.
Note: At the moment we can only support the double glazing of wood frames. We do not have good solutions for aluminium frames and are genreally limited to secondary glazing solutions. If you have aluminium windows and are interested in working with us, please contact us.
