An efficient and cost-effective alternative to double glazing
If you’re looking to insulate your home better, block out external noise and add an extra level of security to your windows, secondary glazing is the ideal solution. As the name suggests, secondary glazing works by adding an extra window frame around your existing windows, meaning there is no need to replace your existing glazing. Sitting in an aluminium or wooden frame, secondary glazing can be slid open easily to allow fresh air to be let in and for easy cleaning access. Many people find secondary glazing to be better at heat and noise insulation than typical uPVC double glazing. Contact us today to see If secondary glazing would work well in your home.
Why choose secondary glazing?
Acoustic insulation – up to 80% of exterior noise can be blocked with secondary glazing
Thermal insulation – the additional gap between your windows and the outside world makes it easier for your home to retain heat
Cost – secondary glazing is often cheaper than a full replacement of your existing frames
Security – anybody who does try to break in through your windows will be blocked by an additional layer of protection
Ideal for listed properties – with secondary glazing, there’s no need to change the external appearance of your property
