It is sometimes difficult to balance the desire for energy saving and noise reduction in beautiful period properties, this is where secondary glazing comes in. With minimal internal space taken up by the fitted units and when they are carefully designed to blend into the space and almost disappear into the original frames.
We work in harmony with the local building conservation officers making sure any recommendations we offer are consistent with their remit to keep character homes in character, yet improve on the energy efficiency of the homes.
As a business with a wealth of experience, we understand the nuances of preserving the historical beauty and dynamic of character homes using secondary glazing. Some of the advantages of secondary glazed windows over single glazed:
Energy and cost efficient, reducing the heat loss that comes from single glazed windows while keeping you comfortable.
Sound and Noise Insulation:
Reduce obtrusive street clatter and achieve significant levels of noise reduction and sound proofing.
Adding a secondary glaze offers an additional barrier of protection for your home that can’t be opened from the outside.
Environment & Conservation:
Secondary glazing is not subject to Conservation Restrictions and it is generally recommended and approved for listed buildings, although it is always prudent to ask for approval as long as the project has been designed properly, refusal would be exceptional.
Sealed to Perfection:
Eliminate or drastically reduce the onslaught of draughts, dust, pollen and other airbourne pollutants.
Low Hassle, Low Stress, High Quality.
We fit sub-frames inside the window reveal and then fit a secondary glazing unit, making sure the structure of the windows’ horizontal and vertical bars are mirrored so that from an external view the secondary glazing units are not seen. We have a wide range of styles to suit any application. It’s technical, but we guarantee you will be happy with the final result.
