A single pane of glass provides very poor insulation because glass is a good conductor of heat, therefore much of the heat in your room literally goes out the window! Install Double Glazing, and you have a layer of air trapped between two panes. Air is a poor conductor so far less heat is lost through the window.
The benefits of double glazing:
- Reduced Heat Loss in Winter
- Reduced Heat Gain is Summer
- Conserve Energy in both Heating & Cooling Costs
- Noise Reduction
- Condensation Reduction
- Creates a Healthy Home
Cat Doors and Dog Doors are an important addition to your home.

Please note: In some cases, the glass may need to be replaced entirely.
Glass damage can unfortunately occur in a number of different ways, from mishandling new glass to wiper blade scratches and grafitti. At Glass Specialists, we use the GlasWeld Gforce Glass Scratch Removal System.This system is one of the worlds leading systems in removal of scratches, scuffs, acid etching, hard water spots and other imperfections from vehicle windscreens, side and rear glass. We also commonly remove scratches from household double glazed units, shop fronts or in fact virtually any glass product.
No Distortion - The Gforce system uses non abrasive compounds and polishing disks, so will not leave a low spot in the glass, which causes a distortion. If you have issues with scratching on your windows, please don't hesitate to contact us for a quotation.
Converting Aluminum Windows to Double Glazed
Glass Specialists in conjunction with HomePlus have developed many systems and processes to enable us to convert virtually any brand or type of Aluminium style of window to Double Glazing. Generally the process involves the changing of the outer bead on the fixed windows and the frame around the opening window on openers. We replace all of the existing glass with a brand new factory sealed complete double glazed unit. This ensures that your new windows are fully guaranteed for 10 years and meet the very latest New Zealand Standards.
We do not need to replace the window surround or the Timber Reveals, therefore there is no need to redecorate and or work does not affect the outer seals of the windows, therefore avoiding any kind of leaky home issues. We also can replace the latches to the double tongued latch which enables you to leave the windows slightly open when you are not home, yet the home stays secure.

Converting Timber Windows to Double Glazed
Converting timber windows is possible and can be done with excellent results. Generally speaking, the process is handled one of two ways, either an adapter is used, such as Apaptaglaze (See Below) or the timber widows have the glazing channel enlarged to allow a factory sealed double glazed unit, which is the more common process. The enlarging of the glazing channel process involves the skill of both Glass Spec’s and a qualified timber joiner. The process is simple and handled completely by the team at Glass Spec's quickly and efficiently.
Adaptaglaze™ is a product owned by Glass Specialists and is designed to enable double glazing to be installed into existing Wooden or difficult Aluminium joinery. Adaptaglaze™ has made double glazing possible for many people who were looking at changing their windows to accommodate double glazing, but were unable to in the normal way due to older or unusual window styles. Adaptaglaze™ also allows for correct drainage of the sealed units and helps to strengthen up the sash frames that were not originally designed for double glazing.
