Choosing the Right Glass for Your Home

Here at James McCreadie and sons glaziers, near Edinburgh, we provide a range of different glass types. When it comes to choosing glass for your home, there are a number of options to consider. Here are some of the most popular types of glass and their benefits:

1. Double glazed glass

Double glazed glass is made up of two panes of glass with a layer of air or gas in between. This type of glass provides excellent insulation and can help to reduce your energy bills.

2. Triple glazed glass

Triple glazed glass is similar to double glazed glass, but with an additional pane of glass. This type of glass is even more energy efficient and provides excellent sound insulation.

3. Low-E glass

Low-E glass has a special coating that reflects heat back into your home, helping to keep it warm in the winter and cool in the summer. This type of glass is particularly effective in homes with large windows or glass doors.

4. Decorative glass

Decorative glass comes in a range of styles and designs and can be used to add visual interest to your home. It’s particularly popular for use in front doors or windows.

5. Toughened glass

Toughened glass is much stronger than standard glass and is less likely to break. It’s often used in areas where safety is a concern, such as glass balustrades or shower screens.

6. Mirrored glass

Mirrored glass is great for adding a touch of glamour to your home. It can be used in a range of applications, including wardrobes and feature walls.
