Secondary windows are a single window pane installed over your initial windows, with no need to touch the originals. Why should you buy secondary windows though? It can be confusing to know if they’re right for your home. Cliffside Windows provide both secondary windows and double glazing so let’s clear some things up.
Secondary windows: the perfect choice for period homes
If you live in a conservation area or period property, then you won’t be able to alter your original windows. This is where secondary glazing is ideal. It allows you to enjoy the extra barrier of protection against the elements without affecting your original windows. They can be as insulating as double glazing and the distance between panes provides superior noise reduction. The addition of extra glass provides another level of security that makes the windows extremely hard to break through.
By adding secondary windows and improving your home’s energy efficiency, you can increase the value of your period property. In the past, people might have been wary of adding windows but when installed professionally no harm will come to your existing frames. They cannot be seen from the outside which allows the beauty of your authentic windows to be kept.
Double glazing: ticks all the boxes
If you’re suffering from draughts and don’t have a listed building, replacing with efficient double glazing would be your best choice. This improves the aesthetics if your windows look a bit tired and could do with some love. A new set of windows will transform your kerb appeal as well as keeping your home comfortable all year round. You can choose from classic uPVC or ultra-modern aluminium.
Our double glazing reaches an A energy rating giving you the best possible insulation which will help keep your heating bills low. The space between the two windows panes is filled with argon gas which is an extremely effective barrier. It stops warm air escaping and cold air entering your home. With secure locking mechanisms and some styles meeting Secured by Design standard, you can feel reassured with our windows.
