Auckland Retrofit Double Glazing

Posted September 14, 2018

Living in Auckland can be wonderful, but New Zealand’s largest city can also be a noisy and expensive locale. As such, you’ll want to make sure your home is both private and energy efficient so you can keep out noise, save big on your utility bills, and enjoy the lowest possible cost of living.

You may have combed over other home improvement blogs trying to tighten up the ways you use energy, but here’s one you may not have considered yet: retrofit double glazing. Home owners who retrofit their windows with double window glazing can look forward to better energy efficiency and more privacy due to the enhanced noise protection it offers.

Energy Savings

Secondary Double Window Glazing

High quality window glazing uses acrylic instead of glass for the extra layer of material that sits next to your original pane. There are several reasons for this. Acrylic offers:

10 times the strength of glass, which makes it much more resilient if an accident or other damage occurs. In fact, acrylic glazing can even lower the chances of your windows shattering during an earthquake!

A tighter seal against heat loss, which is useful in both cold and warm weather. Make the most of the energy you’ll use running your furnace or air conditioner with the knowledge you’ll be able to maintain the temperature you want in your home more easily.
Superior sound-reducing capabilities, which means you won’t be nearly as bothered by the sounds coming from the street outside. It also means your neighbours will be less likely to hear the noise you’re making, which makes acrylic double glazing ideal for homes that are packed quite close to others in the area.

When considering the services of a retrofit double glazing expert, look for one that meets the following criteria:


You want to work with people who have been doing this kind of work for years—or even decades. Hire a company that has developed a mastery of their craft over a respected career in the business.

Invested in their products

Buy from a business that pays close attention to quality control so your new window glazing will be well-made and last for years to come.

Professional and friendly

Whenever you let contractors into your building, it’s best to make sure you’ll receive respectful and efficient service. Look for signs that the business you’re considering cares about the quality of the experience they’ll provide for you. Free quotes up front are normally a good sign.
