Double glazing

The wind whistles through spaces between my double glazing & the wall where they have been badly fitted. The windows and frames are fine, I just need the gaps filling. Can anyone advise me how to rectify this & what to use or maybe recommend someone reliable or a reputable company who can carry out whats needed please?

If you want it done cheap then its very easy just to get some Gripfill, or something similar, and a mastic gun and do it yourself.

Yep, white sealant and a mastic gun. Who fitted the windows by the way?

If the gap is big use expanding foam but take care if you have not used before.
Wear gloves and apply a little at a time. Then finish with sealant.

In order to provide useful advice we needs to know:
a) What the windows are made of;
b) What the walls are made of (& if brick, is there a cavity?);
c) How big the gap is.
