Secondary glazing is an excellent glazing solution for period properties.
When you’re the proud owner of an older building, the last thing you want is to ruin the windows. Often they’re one of the best features of a listed building. Not only that, such buildings are often protected by law. This means they cannot have the window units replaced, which is what double glazing requires.
This is why historic buildings often have secondary glazing. Since it is 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.
