First off, the home owner should research and locate a reputable provider of double glazing. There are a multitude of providers to choose from, both locally and nationally, so this could take some time.

After that in line is the survey. This phase is a very important aspect of ordering windows that fit exactly and accurately. Often the supplier will take care of this part of the process, yet if not there are numerous experts about. Rest assured, though it does not matter what problems that may crop up from now on, financially and contractually it’s will be supplier’s or surveyor’s problem.
The last phase for replacing home windows should be the easiest. As long as the home-owner has followed the strategies above and then sourced a top quality local fitter that is either certified with FENSA or CERTASS, there will be nothing left to do but put the kettle on. If performed well, double glazed window installation requires the careful removal of old windows and frames together with the repair of any damage in the brick work opening, before the new cills and units are fitted. It’s a learned skill that requires a huge amount of expertise, as using the packing and fitting the beading can be tricky. After the windows are in, the job is not finished until the area is neat and tidy.
Once this last phase is completed, the rest is up to the home owner, who must inspect every installation, ask any questions regarding features and locking mechanisms so that they can guarantee that they are happy with the completed product. Remember to never sign off on an installation that is not completely satisfactory!
