Does glazing thickness really matter?
I am about to have my windows replaced for energy efficiency and have some quotes for the work. 2 quotes are basically the same, triple for the same price as double. However, one company has triple glazing that is 5/8″ thick and the other is 1 3/8″ thick, so a lot thicker. The thicker glass company also has double glazing at 7/8″ thick, which is again thicker than the triple glazing offered by the first company. Does the thickness really matter, is the thicker double glazing better than the thinner triple glazing also?
Any answers most welcome!
Thanks all, Merry Xmas.
