Secondary Glazing & Historically Sensitive Installations

Installing secondary glazing not only makes your period or historically relevant windows more secure, more energy efficient, it does so in a discreet, easily reversible manner.

Maidenhead Glass specialises in fitting secondary glazing to grade 1 and 2 listed buildings, as well as any home or commercial property where older windows need to be kept for aesthetic or historical reasons, but modern thermal and acoustic insulation is required.
We also excel at repairing and replacing period windows and doors in listed and conservation properties in a way that is sensitive to the original look and feel. We can supply and install every requirement including timber and Crittall windows together with restoration and period glass including stained and leaded glass.
Alternatively, we can replicate traditional and heritage designs using timber look uPVC windows, including sash windows. These are energy efficient and virtually maintenance free while preserving the flush look and feel of the building.
No matter what your precise needs, Maidenhead Glass can supply and fit the perfect secondary glazing solution, doing any necessary repairs to the original windows at the same time. Every product we stock is secure, attractive, energy efficient, and fully compliant with all relevant regulations.
Simply let us know your requirements and we can advise you on the perfect style to suit your needs. Alternatively, we’d be happy to inspect your property and give you the benefit of our expertise.
Historic England has published guidance on improving the thermal and security performance of historical windows, especially for Listed Properties in the UK. They suggest that properly installed secondary glazing allows the original windows to be retained in all their glory while cutting off drafts and reducing heat loss through the windows dramatically by as much as 65%. It is also excellent at reducing road noise, reducing sound pressure levels by as much as 80%!.
