Sash windows are one of the finest features of a period home and can be double-glazed without ruining the look or altering the original casement. Chameleon offers slim-profile double glazing for sash windows for your character Brentwood home with techniques and materials that will preserve the beauty of your windows but bring 21st-century comfort to your period property.
The advantages of double glazing need no introduction; noise and draughts are reduced, and energy costs will take a downward tumble. Using Fineo glass which is thin and light, Chameleon can fit double glazing for the traditional sash windows on your Brentwood home. This hi-tech glass has incredible thermal properties on a par with a modern double-glazed unit yet at a fraction of the width, perfectly fitting the narrow rebate of a traditional sash window.
Enjoy 21st-century comfort in your classic Essex period home, the best of both worlds. Update and upgrade your traditional sash windows with the best glazing that technology can offer without compromising on those architectural features that are the trademark of your property.
Help the environment and your pocket with lower energy bills.
Fineo vacuum double glazing for sash windows is already a popular feature on countless Essex homes, and with good reason. Fineo glass is light and thin – only 7 mm – perfectly proportioned for the narrow rebate of a sash window but yet with the most amazing thermal regulation allowing homeowners to enjoy the lower energy costs and constant warm temperatures usually associated with a much more modern home.
We can adjust the rebate slightly if necessary to accommodate the glass, and with barely any additional weight, your sash windows will run as smoothly as ever.
Chameleon will ensure that every window is perfectly rebalanced with the new glazing so that the system of weights and pulleys runs efficiently, if not better, than before. If any repairs are required, we use Accoya wood, a new timber with superior longevity and weatherproofing compared to more traditional woods.
Sash window draught-proofing can reduce draughts and rattling of your original sash windows.
