Altrincham secondary glazing for period homes

Altrincham is a town in Trafford Manchester close to Sale, historically Altrincham was established as a market town in 1290 when much of the local trade was agriculture, many of the properties in the town are still of historical interest and many still retain the original wooden sash windows or casement windows.

This is wonderful for the aesthetics of Altrincham and preserves its heritage for generations to come, but can also limit the options for all the property owners in the areas with sliding sash windows or period casement windows as the regulations are quite strict on altering the appearance of any period wooden windows in Altrincham.

Options for your period windows if you are a property owner in Altrincham

So what are your options to maximize the thermal performance of your period windows and reduce external noise pollution. Kensington’s can give you several options to meet your specific requirements depending on your budget and what desired effect is you want to achieve, firstly you could draught proof them this is the cheapest option and will both reduce noise and improve the thermal performance of the windows and is accepted by Altrincham planning authority without any planning approval needed.

Secondly you could fit secondary glazing to the inside of your period sash windows this will greatly improve the thermal performance and noise penetration through your windows, and you generally don’t need any approval from Altrincham planning authority because it is not usually visible for the outside of the building.

Your third option we could carry out would be to retro fit slim double glazing to your original sash or casement windows, slenderpane double-glazing would be retro fitted inside your original sashes and would look virtually indistinguishable from single glazing with the thermal performance of a brand-new window.

You will need planning approval from Altrincham planning authority if you live in a listed building (we do fit this product in listed buildings). If you are just in a conservation area you will not generally need approval from Altrincham planning authority as we would not be changing the overall appearance of your sliding sash windows.
