Secondary Glazing, Surrey

Secondary glazing in Surrey from Alaskan Windows offer a cheaper alternative to new double glazing. In most modern homes, double glazing has become the norm, offering improved insulation and reduced heat loss and noise pollution. However, double glazing requires a complete window replacement if the previous panes were not double glazed, and can thus be expensive.

Glazing in Surrey is not a new concept. Even as far back as the 1800s, certain buildings were constructed with internal glazing being incorporated into the design. The process consists of an independent window system added on to the inside of an existing window structure. The original window does not get altered.

When implementing secondary glazing on a building, it is important to use materials and a system which is in line with the current design and materials that are present on the property. There are a vast range of glazing systems available that can match the individual needs of each property or building. Most new systems have aluminium frames, as these are lightweight, sturdy and relatively inexpensive. Alternatively, for those older properties, timber frames can be utilised and are effective in their own right.

By investing in our Surrey secondary glazing, you can instantly transform the way your home performs. The glazing has been carefully designed and stringently tested to ensure it exceeds standards of quality. We work with leading manufacturer Granada. This gives you peace of mind that you’re investing in Surrey glazing that will provide you with several years of service.

Features & Benefits of Secondary Glazing in Surrey

Bespoke Design

On original or older houses, the owners often do not want to mix the modern look of double glazed windows with the houses older or more unique features. Therefore, utilising secondary glazing can ensure that the owners can retain the unique qualities and aesthetics of their property, whilst at the same time insulating it and minimising wastage.

Our expert team will work closely with you to help design and install bespoke secondary glazing in Surrey that matches your requirements perfectly. All our glazing can be custom sized to suit a range of door and window profiles.

A Cost Effective Solution

Because secondary glazing is essentially a ‘bolt’ on, it does not require a new set of windows in order to install new glazing. It is a versatile product and can be adjusted to fit a particular size of an established window frame.

As well as this, you can benefit from thermally efficient glazing that will help reduce the costs of your future energy bills. This is due to the modern design of the glass working to retain heat for longer, and prevent cold air and draughts from affecting the performance of your Surrey home.

Benefits of Secondary Glazing

Sound Insulation

Because of its larger gap in between the panes, the internal glazing is a better sound insulator than double glazing. This fact surprises many, as double glazing is seen as thicker and sturdier, but some noise, particularly traffic noise, can vibrate through the double glazed panes.

The improved sounds insulation will keep noise pollution out, allowing you to enjoy peace and quiet from the comfort of your own home. Whether you live in an urban area or on a busy street, our secondary glazing will help keep unwanted sounds out.

Inherently Secure

Secondary glazing can be an additional security enhancement to a property, as it presents a further barrier to entry to a property. This type of glazing is particularly useful for historical buildings who wish to enhance their security, but want to retain their current look.

The perception of secondary glazing is not perhaps as positive as it should be. This is because it is a bolt on and does not, on first appearances seem as sturdy as alternatives available on the market. However, the evidence indicates that it can be a cost-efficient and effective method of providing further insulation, reduce heat loss and reduce external noise coming into a property.
