Secondary glazing is particularly suitable for use in conservation areas and listed buildings were drafts and heat loss are often a particular problem  our system is the perfect solution for buildings where planning restrictions are enforced and original windows cannot easily be replaced, and it wont compromise the aesthetics of existing windows and frames.

 We are specialists in fitting secondary double glazing into properties where planning restrictions apply. For example, conservation areas where the removal of the original windows is prohibited. In this process, a completely separate aluminium frame and glass is installed on the interior portion of the existing frame or window reveal, thereby transforming your single-glaze window into one with a form of double-glazing and the associated benefits.

Draught Reduction

Traditional wooden sash windows can become susceptible to draughts, strong cold winds seeping in through gaps in windows can easily turn your rooms into a cold chamber no matter how much you spend on heating bills. Secondary glazing acts as an additional barrier between draughty windows and your home.

Older properties are notorious for being expensive to heat and keep comfy during the winter months

Reduced Condensation

Clear – secondary glazing provides a complete internal seal, allowing balanced ventilation between your window and the secondary glazing. This stops the inner glass from becoming too cold and helps to tackle condensation. Build up of condensation on single window panes, due to difference in outside and inside temperature, will make a room damp. This can be accentuated during winter

months so you must do all you can to keep your home warm and dry.
