Double Glazing Overview

Richmond Glass are specialists in double glazing for both new and existing homes. 

There are over one million homes in New Zealand with little or no insulation, and even modern, well insulated homes are still losing up to 50% of their heat through single-glazed windows. 

New building standards now mean all new homes must be fitted with double glazing.  This is in recognition of the fact that single-glazed windows are notoriously poor at any insulation as single glass panels transfer cold very easily, reducing the temperature inside, thus requiring a greater amount of energy to maintain a comfortable temperature.

Our high performance double glazing can significantly reduce heat loss, and make for a warmer, drier, healthier home for you and your family. Double glazed windows will help keep generated heat inside, keeping your home at a more consistent temperature - cutting down your power costs.

What is Double Glazing?:

Double glazing is made from two pieces of glass sealed together with an air space in between. A double glazed window sits in your window frame just as regular single glazing would, but provides a number of extra benefits.

Whether you are looking to keep your home warmer, quieter or reduce condensation, Richmond Glass can recommend the best combination of glass types to meet your needs.

The team here at Richmond Glass have extensive experience in double glazing installations, for old and new homes, as well as commercial properties.

Why not contact us for no-obligation advice or a quotation to meet your double glazing needs.  It could be easier and less costly than you think to make your home more comfortable, more energy efficient and less costly to run.
