Secondary glazing in listed buildings

The first question I’m sure you want to ask is can I fit secondary glazing in grade II or grade I listed building or a conservation area, and the answer to your question is in most circumstances you are allowed to fit secondary glazing in listed building as it is deemed as esthetically acceptable as it does not change the outside appearance of your property also it can be easily removed without damaging the fabric of the building.

That said we could make a quick call or email to your conservation officer so you are happy that you comply with your local planning authority’s directive up to date we have never been refused permission to fit secondary glazing to a listed building.

Historic England has the responsibility for managing the historic environment and advises local planning authorities and government departments on development proposals that can effect listed building in the united kingdom.

The good news is that both parties totally agree that historic properties have to change and adapt to become more attractive to parties wishing to purchase a listed building ,particularly as many listed building remain empty and can soon become in a state of disrepair ruining the fabric of the building and becoming prone to vandalism or theft.

Most of these buildings are thermally inefficient with draughty sash windows or casement windows and poor acoustic performance these problems need addressing and this can be achieved through careful selection of secondary glazing, addressing the problems of heat retention and noise reduction.

Conclusion is you can fit secondary glazing to listed buildings and properties in conservation areas, so rest assured you can finally address the problems of cold draughty noisy windows.
