What is Secondary Glazing?
Secondary Glazing is a method of increasing a listed buildings energy performance and security, without making any alterations to the appearance or original structure. For this reason, secondary glazing does not require planning permission.
Improving non-listed buildings windows is easy. Modern uPVC double-glazing comes as one unit; the old window is removed and new fitted. With our secondary glazing, we add a panel of glass behind the existing window.
Once installed, secondary glazing mimics the effects of today’s most popular window choice. Trapping a thin layer of air to create a thermal barrier between your home and the outside world.
