Perfect for anybody who owns a period property, secondary glazing doesn’t require the current windows to be removed.
When you live in an older building the last thing you want is to ruin the windows, which are often part of the property’s charm. In many case, period houses are protected by law, which means you cannot have the window units replaced- which is what double glazing requires.
Secondary glazing is considered one of the best solutions for owners of period properties that want or need to retain their original windows. Since secondary windows are considered a reversible change, it’s highly recommended by The English Heritage and The Listed Property Owners Club.
How does secondary glazing work?
This system involves fitting a fully independent internal window behind the existing primary window. In other words, fitting another casement behind.
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.
