Secondary glazing – the pros and cons
There are several reasons for choosing to install secondary glazing:
- For some homeowners, the cost of replacing single glazed windows with double or triple glazing can be prohibitive. At around half the cost of installing new windows, secondary glazing is a cheaper option.
- Other homeowners may be unable to replace their windows due to a listed building status. Secondary glazing can give them a warmer and more energy efficient home, without breaching the listed building regulations.
- Finally, secondary glazing may be a useful option where people are living in areas of high noise pollution. In this case, secondary glazing is added to the existing double or triple glazing, to improve the sound-proofing.
