DIY Double Glazing getting the right specification
Perhaps the best thing about buying double glazing from u-fit, I'm trying to remain unbiased!) is that as a manufacture with nearly 20 years experience.We can offer a very wide range of different double glazing specifications.
The biggest problem is that there is so much choice, that it can be difficult to remember all the various options. I've found that people take largely one of three different approaches to choosing their Double glazing.
The very cheapest window you can do -
We manufacture as standard a 70mm internally glazed window,with a high security German manufactured locking system.The cheapest windows have the fewest openers and use C rated sealed units (Glass) if they are going in a domestic dwelling.If the windows are to be installed in a uninhabited building, shed,garage,animal barn etc you can specify normal clear double glazing( the kind used before 2004) it's still 28mm with two panes of glass but has a U value of typically 2.0.
The very best window you can do – I like people like this, not least because the order value is the most,but because they are buying the 'very best in the shop' and it's nice to see a fully loaded window packed with every single possible option. I've listed the specification of an order that we recently did.

A window to suit my exact requirements –
Perhaps this option is the most popular,If you have a south facing window in a court yard, it might be prudent to specify anti sun coated glass to try and help prevent heat build up in the room. If you can tell us as much as you can about your requirements we can advise and spec the window to suit you. If you have an existing quote we can often improve or remove some options to suit your requirements.
