Secondary Glazing Guildford

Many people have heard of double glazing, but not so many have heard of secondary glazing.

So, what is it? And why is it cheaper than double glazing?

Secondary glazing is when an independent system is fitted on the inside of existing windows. The reason it’s cheaper than double glazing is because the latter needs entirely new units fitted. This means the process is not only cheaper, but much quicker and easier. Although secondary glazing can be done as a DIY job, it’s wise to hire a good windows installer. Only experts usually can ensure the job will be done to the highest standards.

Although both will make your home quieter and warmer, double glazing can involve removing period windows and replacing them with more modern units. Secondary glazing is a great option for those looking to retain such features.

Secondary Glazing Woking

Secondary glazing involves fitting a fully independent internal window behind the existing primary window.

If you live in a listed or period property, you may be considering secondary glazing. Since double glazing entails having whole units installed, it can ruin the appearance of traditional windows. Secondary glazing meanwhile, since it is considered a reversible change, is recommended by The English Heritage and The Listed Property Owners Club. If a property’s windows have lasted for hundreds of years, it’s natural to wish to preserve these. It’s also important to protect windows with historic value in themselves, such as medieval stained glass.

Secondary glazing is used on many historic buildings, which are often draughty and have poor acoustic performance. This system helps rectify all these factors, as well as improving heat retention. Like double glazing, secondary glazing also provides significant noise reduction, improves thermal efficiency and provides enhanced security.

If you’re looking for secondary glazing near Woking, consider BJB Windows. Home improvements since 1988, we are a family based business located in Normandy, near Guildford.
