Transform Your Home with Secondary Glazing
Invest in your future happiness
Ever dreamt of elevating your beloved home from simply traditional to truly exceptional? Imagine boosting not just the charm but also the market value of your home, making it a standout choice for potential buyers. It’s not just an upgrade; it’s a smart investment in your future.
Enhancing your home’s value can be achieved in many ways, but one of the most effective and least intrusive methods is through secondary glazing. Beyond the obvious benefits of comfort for you and your family, it also makes the property much more appealing when you’re looking to sell.
If you’ve been feeling the chill of a wintery bill, then you should consider secondary glazing.
Making your home cosy
There’s a dastardly culprit in your home leaking up to 18% of your warmth: your windows. They may have done an alright job before the price of energy skyrocketed, but to achieve that same level of cosy now requires a better approach.
The solution lies in secondary glazing. By installing advanced-material secondary glazing, you can both protect and improve the performance of your existing windows, thereby enhancing the overall functionality of your home.
Clearview’s thermally efficient secondary glazing reduces your home’s running costs. Acting as a discreet internal window, it adds an extra insulation layer, significantly reducing heat loss. With options like face-fixed or reveal-fixed glazing, you create an air-filled cavity that conserves energy while blocking external noise.
Secondary Glazing vs Double Glazing
Double glazing is a popular choice for improving the thermal efficiency of homes, yet it doesn’t match the comprehensive benefits of secondary glazing. Chiefly, secondary glazing outperforms double glazing by a significant margin in terms of insulation (U-Value) and noise reduction.
U-Values refer to the rate of heat transfer through a structure such as a door, wall, or window. A lower U-Value means that the structure is better insulated. A standard single pane achieves a U-Value of around 5.8 W/m²K, while double glazed windows achieve an average of 2.7 W/m²K.
With our secondary glazing, we have seen U-Values as low as 0.97 W/m²K!
On top of this, secondary glazing offers unmatched reduction of external noises. Double glazing can optimistically achieve noise reduction of 35 decibels (dB), barely better than single glazing’s reduction of 29 dB.
Secondary glazing can achieve an incredible level of noise reduction, as much as 54 dB!
Preserving Style with Secondary Glazing
If these significant benefits to the quality of your home weren’t enough – your secondary glazing is installed alongside your existing windows, allowing you to keep your original architectural style. This is especially important if your property is listed or otherwise has restrictions in what can be done to improve it.
Maintaining the aesthetic appeal of your existing windows is particularly important for traditional timber windows, or for any window type that is not easy to replace. Secondary glazing allows these windows to retain their elegance without the need for frequent upkeep. This ensures vast rapid improvement to your home in the least intrusive way possible.
At Clearview, we offer a wide range of customisation options, including various opening styles and a selection of over 200 RAL colours for the frames, ensuring your new glazing complements your home’s unique character.
