Preserve your building’s unique aesthetic with quality secondary glazing

Enlightening, discreet, warm & tranquil

Secondary glazing consists of a fully independent internal window fitted on the room side of an existing window. Secondary glazing delivers many of the features that modern double glazing provides without the extra hassle of trying to obtain planning permission.

Made from lightweight, slender aluminium frames, enjoying the sunshine and making the most of far-reaching views, whilst preserving your property’s exceptional character, is a straightforward process with secondary glazing installations by Ventrolla.

Frequently Asked Questions

I live in a listed building / conservation area / AONB - can you work on my property?

In these cases, secondary glazing is an ideal alternative. We have completed lots of work over the years on listed properties and those within conservation areas and Areas Of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB). Working closely with local conservation and planning officers, English Heritage, Historic England, Historic Scotland, and Cadw, you can trust in Ventrolla to reinstate and sustain unique architectural features whilst simultaneously heightening historical value too.

Will secondary glazing reduce outside noise levels?

Independently tested and proven to significantly reduce sound intrusion, our high performance secondary glazing can reduce noise levels up to 80% and heat loss up to 65%.

Do you offer an installation guarantee?

Yes, our work is guaranteed for 5 years.

What is the average cost of renovating a window with secondary glazing?

It all depends on how much work each window needs. For a more accurate estimate, please call us on 0800 0277 454 to arrange a free, no-obligation survey.
