When and why is triple glazing best?
If you want the most thermally efficient system that won’t allow the heat to escape then triple glazing is the answer. Triple glazed windows have two outer panes that are coated with a Low E glass surface that reflects heat back into your home. The gap between the glass is filled with an inert gas called Krypton. It prevents the heat from escaping and keeps the cold outside.
Use this system on North facing windows which receive little or no sunlight making the rooms colder than the rest of the house. For the best performance our expert consultants can help you choose the optimal mix of our A or A+ rated double glazing with our A++ triple glazed windows.

Aside from its excellent insulating properties triple glazing is an excellent way to deaden sound. Three layers of glass offer you the best sound exclusion system on the market.
What colours do uPVC windows come in?
Can I paint uPVC window frames?
It is possible, but why would you want to do that? We can supply so many colours and we don’t recommend painting the frames as it will never look as good as the original. If, however, you’re still keen to paint, we can supply you with a primer that you can paint onto. Be aware that once painted you can never return to the original look.
You also need to understand that once you paint or modify our installation your All Seasons Roof guarantee will no longer be valid, so before you make any modifications you should discuss it with us.
The All Seasons Roof system offers you a wide selection of colours to suit your every need. You can even use different colours inside and out.

The uPVC triple glazed casement windows provided by All Seasons Roof are 70mm front to back. The sealed unit is 36mm back to front and it consists of three 4mm panes of glass with two 12mm spaces between the panes.
Frames and finishing of the triple glazed units are the same as the double glazed windows so there is no obvious difference in appearance.

Can I get self-cleaning glass from All Season Roof?
There is no quality standard to measure Self-cleaning glass against does not yet have a quality standard to measure it against. The coating on self cleaning glass is activated by sunlight and tonly heavy rain will wash the dirt away. Most windows have lintels, eaves or arches, and they will therefore only receive a proper wash down when there is heavy wind driven rain. Since conditions and location of windows vary, we can’t back a product that may or may not perform to customer expectations.
Our selection of tilt & turn windows make it much easier to clean windows even in hard to reach places.

Notwithstanding these windows still comply through their Whole Window U-Value.

Either way, every window has a FENSA certificate of Building Regulations Compliance.
