Wooden framed windows need repairing or revarnishing every 12 months or so, the wood can rot, and of course, wooden frames are not good insulators.

One of the major benefits of double glazing is its ability to block out the noise. In built-up areas, areas near factories, airports or highways noise is a big problem.
Back in the early days of promoting double glazing in the United Kingdom, the sound reduction of double glazing was a significant selling point.

Double Glazing Benefits Security
In UAE, home and building security is a priority for everyone. Burglar bars, perimeter fences with electric wires all linked to alarms, and an armed response is commonplace.
Modern double glazing can play an essential role in securing your property. High-quality double glazing has gas pumped between the two panes of glass that creates pressure vacuum.
This pressure makes the window tougher and stronger and very difficult to break. Combined with the added strength double glazing systems come with advanced locking mechanisms.
For those who want to leave a window open for some air, some systems can be locked in an open position and again are very strong and difficult to break.
Double glazing won’t prevent a break in, it would be foolish to claim so, but it will increase the time taken to break in and improve the frustration of anyone attempting to do so.

In fact, the double glazing with Roof insulation will reduce condensation substantially as there will be a substantial reduction in cold air entering the home.

The harsh sunlight in Dubai causes carpets and soft furnishings to fade.
UV light levels in Dubai, especially in summer, are high and UV eats into the fabric and other materials such as wood causing it to yellow or fade.
An unexpected benefit of double glazing is that it reduces interior fading considerably by merely filtering out more of the harmful UV rays.
