What is Secondary Glazing?
A method in which a panel of glass is retrofitted behind a pre-existing window, secondary glazing can offer the same benefits you would get with new double glazed windows, without actually having to install new windows to the property. This is beneficial for customers who live in heritage sites or who simply don’t want to disrupt the visual integrity of their current windows.
Thanks to our supplier Granada, you can experience a warmer, quieter home without the hassle of installing new windows.
One of the main reasons to get secondary glazing fitted into your home is its excellent thermal efficiency. It is said that this can improve insulation by roughly 65%, allowing for a warmer home. Ideal for the colder months!
If you’re looking to reduce noise pollution, secondary glazing can help with that by offering the most effective sound insulation, even outperforming double glazing. Perfect for homeowners who occupy busy, urban areas!
We understand that security is of great importance to all homeowners, which is why you can benefit from affordable yet discreet enhanced security for your property when you have secondary glazing retrofitted!

What’s the difference between double glazing vs secondary glazing?
They may sound like they’re the same, however, they are completely different. Double glazing involves installing a single frame, consisting of two panes of glass which is separated by either krypton or argon gas. Secondary glazing involves installing a new pane of glass behind an already existing window.
What areas do you cover?
We can install our products to homes throughout Witney, Oxfordshire, Gloucestershire, Wiltshire, Berkshire, Warwickshire and surrounding counties. However, if you wish to know whether we can install secondary glazing to your home, please contact us today.
Can secondary glazing help lower monthly bills?
It is estimated that 10% of the home’s heat is lost through poorly insulated windows. With the inclusion of secondary glazing, this can help eliminate this problem and retain the heat longer and aid in lowering those monthly bills.
Does secondary glazing add value to your property?
You can increase the resale value of your home by installing secondary glazing. The noise-reducing properties that come with it can make homes in busy, suburban areas or ones near flight paths and noisy train lines seem more appealing. This can allow for homeowners to enjoy a quieter home, no matter where they live!
Is secondary glazing easy to maintain?
Thanks to our supplier Granada, we can offer many design styles which can grant you better access to your original window, allowing you to clean them down with ease.
Is this method cost effective?
You’ll be surprised at how cost effective secondary glazing can be. Unlike installing new windows to your home, it’s easy to fit, making it a cheaper option for homeowners on a budget but who want to experience the benefits of double glazing.
Is it visibly noticeable?
No. Despite all the perks that secondary glazing can offer, it won’t ever look visibly jarring or out of place. It will feel like you have double glazing without having to go through the costly process of installing new windows entirely.
