Are you weighing up the pros and cons of investing in secondary glazing compared to double or even triple glazing? We’ll outline the differences in durability between these materials and explore how to get the best value for money when improving your home.

Robust Aluminium Secondary Glazing

With any kind of home improvement, aluminium is an excellent material to choose since it is inherently tough and strong. Our secondary glazing works by installing supplementary glazed panels within existing single-glazed windows. This is most commonly seen in properties such as listed buildings, where homeowners are unable to upgrade their existing windows due to planning restrictions.

Aluminium guarantees you total peace of mind for your long-lasting secondary glazing. Compared to outdated single-glazed windows, your listed building’s aluminium will stand the test of time. As a result, our advanced secondary glazing will not rot, rust of flake. That way, you can retain the existing aesthetic of your property’s windows and enjoy high-performance and low maintenance improvements.

When you choose aluminium secondary glazing, you want to improve your home in a way that not only makes it more comfortable but that makes you want to stay there for longer. That’s why our installations give you total peace of mind when it comes to the security advantages they offer. Secondary glazing works as an additional physical barrier between your living space and the outside world, so you’ll keep any unwanted intruders at bay, while also enjoying a cosier home with improved thermal efficiency, condensation solutions and noise reduction properties too.

Our aluminium secondary glazing will last many years, and it means you’ll stay more comfortable in your property for longer.

Secondary Glazing vs Double Glazing

Are you thinking that double glazing will last you longer than secondary glazing? You might be surprised by how long it will perform at its best. On average, double glazing has a lifespan of around 20 years, though this can vary significantly based on a number of factors, such as how well the windows are maintained and what kind of environment they are in.

As a result, double glazing can sometimes last as long as 35 years and as few as 10 years. This could be because of the quality of the workmanship and materials, among other factors. That’s why you’ll want to make sure you source any home improvements from market leaders, like our expert products and service at Granada secondary glazing.

Though this might seem like a long time at first, with double glazing sometimes in the right circumstances lasting over three decades, it’s a relatively short space of time in the lifespan of a listed building. You’ll want long-lasting secondary glazing, expertly designed and installed, to stand the test of time.

It will be useful to consider whether the perceived advantages of secondary glazing are worthwhile to go when weighed up against the maintenance of it – and that is even if double glazing is an option for you. For heritage homes and listed buildings, it may not be. However, that means you don’t have to feel like you are missing out, as double glazing isn’t a direct improvement over secondary glazing with regards to how long it lasts or any other advantages.
