DIY Double Glazing – we provide, you install

Ever wondered whether you can DIY double glazing? Do you imagine turning your existing single glazed windows into proper double glazed units at more than 50% off the price of professional installation? Whilst it has always been possible to go down to your local joiner and ask for a new sash, they will normally glaze it first, making it nearly impossible to hang by yourself. And unlike us, they might not have over a decade of experience installing double glazing into homes across New Zealand, so when they deliver, you’re often on your own.

That’s not what we do. We offer New Zealand’s first dedicated and affordable alternative to professionally installed double glazing. We’ve put together a DIY Double Glazing Kit complete with instructions and all the equipment you need for installation. Now you can finally save big on your home renovations and still achieve that professional finish by following our tried and tested installation guide.

What’s more, you can complete the whole process online and pay by credit card. We won’t even charge you until your job has entered our queue, so there’s no risk if you change your mind.

How it works

1. Place an online order

Order your double glazed windows online by selecting the type of wood and the rough measurements. When you go to pay, we’ll reserve the amount on your credit card and send you an email with our measurement form attached.
