It might not be for the amateur renovator, but DIY double glazing is a job that is possible to complete yourself. There are also a variety of other glazing options to improve your windows too, if you have a lower budget or less time.

Upgrading your glazing, either by swapping your single glazed windows for double glazed versions, or by adding an additional layer of glazing will help to cut your energy bills as well as making your home a more comfortable place.
