Secondary glazing for listed building windows
Secondary glazing involves adding a single glazed window to the inside of an existing window. Cheaper than replacing your original windows, this extra pane of glass also provides another layer of security for your home. However, that’s not the only benefit it has; secondary glazing also actively traps more heat in the home, leading to cosier interiors and the potential to decrease your energy bill. However, sound reduction is where secondary glazing really excels; fitting it to your home will prevent a huge amount of external noise from coming inside, letting you enjoy your home surroundings much more peacefully.
As secondary glazing sits on the inside of the property and is classed as a removable alteration, it’s often approved for use in conservation areas and others where planning restrictions are in place too. Available for fitting to a wide range of different styles, it’s also suitable for use on more contemporary homes.
