Which double glazing company should you choose?

Which double glazing company should you choose?

The decision to replace the doors or windows in your home, or to add a conservatory represents a major investment. You’ll have decided what style you’re looking for and you’ll probably have a very good idea of what you want.

But how do you choose a double-glazing company in Cheltenham and Gloucester to deliver these improvements to your home?

Independent vs national

The double-glazing market is highly competitive. Our customers across Gloucestershire all tell us that they like to “shop around” before making their choice. A common first decision is often whether to use a local independent firm or a large-scale national brand.

The large-scale national “big brands” often come with hefty price tags and gimmicky sales tactics. Their sales representatives can reel off facts and figures and offer on-the-spot and time-limited discounts which can be very intimidating.

Unfortunately, these sales reps don’t always know the finer details about the products and never actually come in to contact with them, apart from the small samples that they will bring to your home.

This is in stark contrast to most independent double-glazing firms who operate completely differently, with a small, skilled team quoting, supplying and fitting the products that they sell.

Cheltenham Glass and Glazing are proud to be an owner-managed business that has been serving the Cheltenham and wider Gloucestershire areas for over 10 years. Our team of fitters and builders work closely together and understand the need for providing a high quality, reliable service to our customers.

Our Director, Adam Worth offers a genuinely bespoke service to our customers. From meeting customers and personally preparing all quotes, Adam ensures that each customer receives a comprehensive breakdown of the items that have been discussed. He also specifies orders, surveys properties and manages each job from quotation through to completion.

Adam helps our customers to make informed decisions about their new windows, doors and conservatories and is always available to answer queries about the products we supply and fit.

Cheltenham Glass and Glazing customers tell us that this personal approach is a key factor that convinces them to bring their business to us, providing essential reassurance and guidance as they invest in their home improvements.

Another factor that we believe reassures our customers is our policy to avoid running tacky promotions, often used by the nation-wide big brand firms. We like to rely on our industry expertise and, crucially, our reputation to win business. We might not always be able to offer the lowest price, but we can guarantee that we offer the best value for money.


Double glazing comes with a range of benefits, including improved security, reduced condensation, keeping heat inside and keeping noise out. All these factors depend on the quality of the product that you’re buying.

At Cheltenham Glass and Glazing we pride ourselves on supplying only premium-quality products from companies such as REHAU and Smart Frames. Our windows are available as double or triple glazed and are complemented by superior quality seals, hardware and composites.

We only supply products that use the highest quality materials and provide meticulous attention to detail at every stage of every job. You can be assured that high quality comes as standard.


When you buy double glazing products from Cheltenham Glass and Glazing, you can be sure that you are investing in a company that cares about the security of your home and your family. All our products come with top rated security features as standard, conforming to British Standards specifications.

Energy rating

As with electrical appliances, double glazing carries an energy rating that illustrates the energy performance of the unit. The British Fenestration Rating Council runs the double-glazing energy rating system. The highest rating possible is A++ and the lowest rating is E.

All windows that we supply hold an A rating as standard. We also offer upgrades to A+ and A++.  This is far higher than building regulations, which state that new double glazing for housing should be a minimum rating of C.

The higher the energy rating, the more thermally efficient a window will be, meaning our customers will save more money on heating bills if they select windows that are rated A and above. In these times of austerity you can’t ask for more – good on your budget and good for the environment too.


All products that we supply and fit are fully protected by 10-year guarantees provided they have been properly installed, used and maintained. These comprehensive manufacturer’s warranties cover mechanical operations and surface finishes on handles and door furniture for up to 10 years. The uPVC profiles that we fit are also guaranteed against discolouration, warping and cracking. For specific guarantee information please contact us.
