5 Main Benefits Of Double Glazing


Double glazing has been designed specifically to reduce the heat loss from buildings and homes. However, it has many other benefits to offer as well. These benefits are:

Warmer Winters


One of the key and prime benefits of double glazing is that it helps you during the winter season to a great extent. With the help of double glazed windows, you can prevent 50-70 percent of the home and protect it from heat loss. Double glazing also helps in storing natural heat from the winter sun. Resultantly, you can expect a lot of protection during the winter season from double glazed windows and expect your homes to remain calm and cozy.

Reduces Noise


Nobody likes extra noise coming in his or her homes and this is where double glazing comes in. Double glazing is also said to reduce noise to a remarkable extent. It will work to reduce the noise for a quieter and calmer home. Moreover, you can expect it to deliver high performance and work to reduce the outside noise by as much as 60 percent. Therefore, it is a great investment particularly for those who are living on a busy road. Double glazed windows will work to block the outside noise and help in preventing all sorts of noises in and out.

Works To Reduce Condensation


Double glazing also has another major benefit to offer. This benefit is related to condensation. It is believed that double glazing works to reduce condensation. Condensation is a serious problem, especially in the older homes. Condensation is so serious that it can work to damage the family’s health, destroy the window frames and a lot more. Therefore, double glazing helps in minimizing the damage of condensation and it works to reduce all the excessive moisture on the window panes.

Reduces Interior Fading


Interior fading is a common concern in households. It is believed that condensation can help in reducing the interior fading to a large extent. It works to reduce the damaging effects of ultraviolet light on the furniture, carpet and the drapes. You can also reduce the need for the thermal drapes that work to block the overall exterior view. This all becomes possible with the help of double glazed windows.

Increases Resale Value


Finally, if we are talking about double glazing, then we cannot forget the fact that double glazed windows work to enhance the resale value of homes. Double glazing is a great way to increase the overall resale value of the homes. Therefore, double glazing will ensure that even if you have an older home, you should try to sell it at a much higher value because double glazing will improve its worth. Moreover, with the retrofit double glazing, any house will be able to reap the many benefits that it has to offer.


Overall, double glazing is considered to be an incredible choice for households and homeowners can reap the many benefits of it once they get it installed on their windows.

Stay True and be Kind :)

Today on my way home in a taxi, I witnessed an elderly man struggling to cross the street. No one was helping him and everyone could clearly see that it was a struggle for him and that he was panicking to get across quickly before the lights went green! In a second, so many things went through my head like… ‘shall I get out’, ‘is anybody going to help him’, ‘surely someone will help any second now’, ‘I hope he is ok’, ‘would he mind if I helped him’… and with those thoughts rushing through my mind, I just thought what the heck, no one else will help him, so I will! I got out of my taxi (politely asking him to wait a minute) and raced over to the elderly man trying to cross the road. I kindly offered to help him across and before I could finish my sentence the man grabbed hold of my arm and squeezed it tightly and walked across the road with me. When we got to the other side, he looked up at me and his eyes welled up and he just stared into my eyes and for a moment, I just felt how appreciative he was and how much that small gesture meant to him!

As I went to leave, (more…)

Hi again!! This is my last one I SWEAR!

I just had to share this as, as you know, I recently posted about my favourite place to eat, then I remembered if you go out to eat in Birmingham, you can’t leave until you have had a drink first!! And ever since I moved my favourite, FAVOURITE place has been Bamboo! So, if you are looking for a good night out, Bamboo is definitely the night club for you!!



Best place for food!

Hi everyone, as my first post, I just had to share with you my favourite place to eat!!

The night I first stayed in Birmingham, Mary insisted on taking me out for food (which I of course moaned about as I hadn’t had much sleep!) but Mary was certain it would be worth it.

So, we got in the taxi and set off to ‘this place’ Mary was going crazy about! We finally arrived at the Mailbox (a very fancy place with fancy restaurants and fancy shops) and Mary lead the way! The place we arrived at was called Miller and Carter. She insisted on ordering for me as she claimed she knew the best stuff to order.

Well… Mary was so right!! The food was out of this world! The steak I had was cooked to perfection and every thing, even the tomato, tasted like nothing I had ever experienced before!! AND to top it off the customer service was spectacular and they really looked after us, all night long!!

If you fancy a night out in Birmingham or live in Birmingham and feel like treating yourself to some mouth-watering food, then head over to Miller and Carter in the Mailbox… you won’t be disappointed!!

I have now been there 26 times… and counting!!
