All Quiet On The Window Front
Rowdy students and noisy buses were problems for the owner of a house in Endcliffe, until Clearview fitted secondary glazing to its 32 windows – bringing quiet, and preventing draughts.
Clearview’s secondary glazing is good at insulating draughty homes, but also an effective way of sound-proofing rooms blighted by traffic noise.
David’s six-bedroomed house is in Ecclesall, and was regularly affected by the roaring of cars and buses – as well as students returning late from nights out. So over the past six years Clearview have fitted secondary glazing to 32 of David’s windows.
“My home,” he says, “is on a busy main road, and traffic noise has significantly increased since I moved here in 1997.” A new bus stop has not helped. It was recently erected a few feet from David’s property, which is a semi-detached building dating from 1853.
It is located in the Endcliffe conservation area, where there are strict rules on changing original features of period homes.
David’s windows are original, single-glazed, with frames in an arched, Gothic style. The frames are in good condition, and Clearview’s secondary glazing meant he could preserve them and their panes while cutting out road noise.
Says David: “Clearview have done the work in four stages since 2010, using various styles of secondary glazing, including sliding-sash and tilt-and-turn windows. The downstairs bathroom’s secondary glazing is opaque, for privacy. The result has been a massive reduction in noise from outside, and much greater heat retention.”
