While there are many benefits that come with living in a listed property, there are some downsides too. Insulation is often poor, and draughts can be a major problem causing heating bills to mount up. Noise levels from outside the property can also be excessive, whether from traffic passing by or noisy neighbours, but due to the listed nature of the property installing standard double glazing is not an option. The good news is that Thames Valley Windows can supply an effective alternative in the form of secondary glazing.
Secondary glazing involves the addition of a second slim window onto a pre-existing window in the property. As an unobtrusive and discreet way of soundproofing and insulating windows it is perfect for areas which have restrictions in place preventing double glazing from being installed. Here at Thames Valley Windows, we have solutions to suit all styles of period property and we have discreet aluminium frames available in a choice of more than 200 different colours to suit your preferences and to work perfectly with your property’s exterior.
Secondary glazing is extremely effective in reducing the noise levels inside a property. In fact, it can cut the amount of noise pollution in the home by up to 54 dB or 80%. Not only that, but secondary glazing also eliminates draughts to keep your home warmer and your energy bills down. It can also reduce condensation to eradicate problems with damp, mould and mildew and even enhance security for your property. All of this can be achieved without affecting the exterior appearance of your home.
There are many clear reasons to consider having our secondary glazing installed.
