BENEFITS OF DOUBLE GLAZING WITH SOLACE CREATIONS

Upgrading your windows and doors to uPVC Double Glazing has numerous benefits. We take pride in the joy our clients express when they describe the transformative effect of our window and doors in their homes. From enhanced insulation to major makeovers, we are thrilled to witness the tangible difference our products make in their daily lives.

Custom Design

Solace Creations is dedicated to designing customised windows and doors for every room in your home, taking into account your unique requirements for performance, style, and functionality. Our approach considers the overall appearance of your home, as well as important factors such as orientation, ventilation, and energy efficiency. We understand that every home is unique and therefore, the design process is of utmost importance to us. We offer free in-store consultations to showcase our diverse collection of opening styles, glass types, and frame colours. Additionally, we also provide free home visits to customise each window and door according to your specific needs. Once you’re ready to proceed, our designer accompanies the installer for a check measure to finalise the configurations and designs.

Experienced Installers

We are pleased to offer two experienced installation teams led by installers who have been working with us for the past 7-10 years: Enviro Renovations and Full House Developments. This allows us to supervise and ensure quality work during installation. The installation process includes the disposal and recycling of your old windows and doors, expansion foaming between the new frames and brick/cladding and trimming the outside. Our teams take pride in their work while maintaining efficiency. We offer brick or cladding cut-downs if you would like to make a window or door taller, and we can recommend builders for any structural requirements.

IncreaseD Comfort

By double-glazing your home, you can achieve a home that is warmer in the winter and cooler in the summer. Insulating the cavities where single-glazed conductive frames are typically found contributes to a well-sealed building envelope. This helps with maintaining your inside temperature, using your heating and cooling for less and ensuring that you are not loosing heat in the winter or gaining heat in the summer.

ReduceD Noise

Standard double glazing can reduce transmission of medium to high frequencies (human voice), with at least a 12mm gap. For low frequencies (traffic) using a different thickness of glass in each pane, or using a laminated glass, can help to cut noise.

To achieve the best noise reduction, choose double glazed units with a very wide air gap between the panes of glass. The next best outcome is to use a laminated glass on the outside pane of the double glazing. An added benefit to this is that laminated glass is often harder to break than standard panes.

Save Energy

Double glazing is an insulated product and will save energy costs such as gas and electricity in your home used for heating and cooling. By double glazing your  home, you will get the benefit of lower energy bills and help lower the carbon footprint of the building.

Putting solar panels on your roof will also cut down energy bills, however, it won’t provide the comfort that double glazing provides. You will still have draughts and uneven temperature in your home. Insulated windows and doors alone can save up to 45% on your energy bills and up to 75% when paired with solar panels.

Transformation

From new homes to replacements, our clients experience the beauty of our modern windows and doors with cutting-edge technology. 

When we replace windows and doors in our client’s homes, we are able to focus in on each room to tailor-design windows and doors to the exact style and performance requirements. We carefully assess each room, taking into account factors such as function, ventilation, and insulation needs, to tailor-design windows and doors that not only look great but also perform exceptionally well. We discuss with the client what works with their current design and how we can make improvements to the new windows and doors. Seeing the before and after transformation is one of our favourite things about our line of work.

For new-build homeowners, we work closely with the builder or architect to ensure each window and door is designed according to the overall vision while achieving energy rating requirements and functionality for each room in the home. There’s nothing more fulfilling than watching a house come to life as it is brought to reality from the plans.

Higher Property Value

Investing in insulated windows and doors can increase the value of a property significantly. Homebuyers are increasingly interested in energy-efficient features that improve the quality of life for the homeowner, and properties that have such upgrades are more likely to sell at a higher price. 

UV Protection

We offer double-glazed glass units with low-emissivity coatings that block a significant portion of harmful ultraviolet (UV) rays from entering the building. This helps protect furnishings, flooring, and other interior surfaces from fading or damage caused by prolonged exposure to sunlight.

Australian Fabrication

Our environment in Australia poses unique challenges, from intense UV rays to unpredictable climates and the threat of bushfires. Ensuring the resilience of windows and doors against these elements is paramount.

At Solace Creations, we prioritise quality and durability. That’s why we collaborate with two trusted Australian suppliers with Australian Certification and high Bushfire Attack Level ratings: Thermotek Windows, which crafts Aluplast in Melbourne, and Forever Green Windows, which specializes in Deceuninck fabrication in Sydney. With glass fabricated in Sydney by Australian Glass Group and Viridian.

Our team of skilled and experienced service technicians is always available to ensure that your equipment is working at its best.

Reach the 7 Stars

In the ACT, it is mandatory for all newly constructed homes to meet the minimum requirement of 7 star ratings as per the guidelines of the National Construction Code. Our windows and doors are insulated with low uValues, and have high performance glass, which enables us to not only meet but exceed these ratings.
