Double Glazed Sash Windows
Experts in sash window double glazing – Edinburgh and the Lothians
It used to be that you had to make a difficult choice between retaining beautiful traditional sash windows and successfully insulating your home from draughts, noise, and airborne dust and dirt – but not anymore. Morningside Windows can adapt your existing sash window to fit double glazed panes of glass, allowing you to retain your stunning period windows whilst benefitting from the superior performance of double glazed panes.
Double glazing has many benefits, it is a very effective insulator keeping the heat in and the cold out, it helps to sound proof your home from intrusive outside noises like traffic, and it also helps to significantly reduce the amount of dust and dirt that gets into your home. Most people notice a drop in their heating bills after installing double glazing, a welcome benefit as energy prices continue to rise.
How much do double glazed sash windows cost?
The cost of double glazing your sash windows is very reasonable, especially when one considers the benefits of significantly improving your home’s insulation whilst retaining an important period feature of your home. If you are interested in finding out the cost of upgrading your sash and case window glazing to double glazed panels, one of our team will be happy to arrange a visit to assess the size and number of windows that you need reglazed and prepare a fully costed estimate for the work required. All work is guaranteed for five years after installation.
Single glazed sash and case windows
Sometimes the best choice of glazing for a window is single glazing, and we offer a reglazing service for single glazed panes. Choose from standard glass, safety glass, or decorative glass for windows that you wish to obscure (such as those in bathrooms and toilets, or windows in overlooked positions).
Sash window repair and restoration
Morningside Windows offer a full and comprehensive sash window repair and restoration service if your windows require more attention than a simple reglaze. You can hire us to tackle minor repairs such as rope replacement or the fitting of new ironmongery, or we can undertake complete renovations, returning ill-fitting and poorly insulated sash windows to perfect working order.

Draughts are often seen as a part of life for those living in older period homes, but some simple adjustments to your existing sash and case windows can all but eliminate the draughts that enter your home through your windows. Morningside Windows use the Reddiseals® draught proofing strip system, a triple strip draught excluder that is inserted into your window cases to block the entry of wind, dust and even noise into your home. We also replace the parting beads and baton rods – a great additional insulator which also reduces window rattle. Find out more about our Draught Proofing Sash Windows service »
