Recommended Industry Blogs
 Double Glazing Blogger  an excellent blogging site by a young professional in the double glazing industry with lots to talk about 

Wodewick. The name comes from the infamous Monty Python Life of Brian (or Bwian). I love Crittal Windows and this blog is technical, interesting and full of useful stuff. Brilliant.

 Renegade Conservatory Guy. A fantastic blog from Matthew Glover, owner of Conservatory Outlet which really gets some healthy discussion going.
