We live in a two story town house and unfortunately the upper level gets very hot from the afternoon sun even with roof insulation installed, also the duplex next door is rented and can get very noisy.
I researched window double glazing on the internet and found a product that could be installed in the existing window frames, although not as effective as replacement of the entire window and frame it was a more affordable option.
One of the installers mentioned was Central Glass and Aluminium who I also researched on the internet and found no negative comments. On contacting Central Glass and Aluminium and outlining my issue I was advised that Heather was the best person to speak with and she would be in contact.
Heather promptly rang back the same day and I outlined my issues, she advised that the solution was not perfect, however we would achieve a noted difference for both heat and noise which supported the information I already had from the internet.
We then arranged for Andy to measure the windows in question and supply a formal quotation. Whilst Andy was on site he made several suggestions which proved helpful and also discussed the effectiveness of the glazing. After further internet research we decided to proceed with the Central Glass and Aluminium as I felt their advice on the glazing product was honest and forthright and they did not try to oversell the product at any stage, also based on the discussions with Heather and Andy I had confidence in their business approach.
As this was an expensive project for us we did it in two stages and Central Glass and Aluminium were more than happy to accommodate this request. We are more than happy with the performance of the double glazed window update and have certainly noticed the difference between the double glazed inserts and the original glass. We have since used Central Glass and Aluminium for a complete window update in our lounge as well as fitting Crimsafe to our doors and windows. We would certainly use Central Glass and Aluminium for our next project and I have no hesitation in recommending them to our friends and neighbours.
