Retrofit Double Glazing vs uPVC joinery with Double Glazing
You can either retrofit your old aluminium or timber windows and doors with a new double glazed glass, which is a relatively quick and small project.

Eco Auckland highlights some of the pros and cons of each method to help you select the best option for your needs and provide you with a comfortable home.
