Building Sheridan 35 with Clarendon - Illawarra

Your windows carry a sticker, usually inside the jamb. It tells you the wind rating of the window. Every property has a wind rating, and it is every builder/window…

If you have it in writing that this would reduce your noise problem, it is their problem and you should expect a result.
But it is quite likely that noise was…

it's really the wall which is too narrow for your window and the plantation shutters. By being not so deep, an aluminium window may help, or you might even…

Hi Carly
The first does not mention double glazing.
Other than that the second is VERY expensive.
The sindows will be essentially the same.
Our aluminium window double glazed (for comparison) would be $750,…

Any Questions on Windows and Doors, incl. Energy & Acoustics

The main window in question is 2400x1200 so 2.88m2 but the first quote was over $2200 so > $750m2. Is that quote too high in your opinion?
It is a silly…

Hi
I recommend that you eliminate all other noise possibilities before embarking on changing windows, or glazing. Noise can enter your home through the ceiling, the walls and the floor, and…

What sort of windows do you have now? Timber or aluminium?

Yes, exactly... Just make sure you compare like with like as far as the glazing is concerned. e.g. 4/12/4 clear.

Double glaze them all, the future may require that, and you won't be saving much anyway.

The spacers are included in the WERS Uw rating, so I would only look at the Uw rating.

Don't compare Low-E with double glazing. They perform 2 different functions... Low-E controls solar heat gain i.e. radiant heat. Double glazing controls conducted heat.
The only useful function for low-E glass…
