Secondary glazing is one of the best solutions for owners of period properties that want or need to retain their original windows.
When the proud owner of a period building the last thing you want is to ruin the windows, which are usually one of the best features of a listed building. Such buildings are also often protected by law; this means you cannot have the window units replaced- which is what double glazing requires.
Since secondary windows are considered a reversible change, it’s highly recommended by The English Heritage and The Listed Property Owners Club.
This system of glazing involves fitting a fully independent internal window behind the existing primary window. It helps to rectify draughts and poor acoustic performance, as well as improve heat retention. Like double glazing, secondary glazing also provides significant noise reduction, improves thermal efficiency and provides enhanced security.
