messageSecondary glazing to cut out road noise
Posted by FH2016 January 27, 08:56PM

We live not far from the A205 and are looking to block out the road noise on one of the front facing rooms. It has a traditional single glazed box sash thats quite drafty. We got a few quotes for a replacement double glazed timber window, but they are absolutely eye watering. Is secondary glazing the solution? Does anyone have good experiences with secondary glazing with acoustic glass? How much should we be looking to spend on this?

We live on East Dulwich Road and the first thing we did when we moved in was to install secondary glazing acoustic glass, best thing we did - massively cuts down on the noise. I can't comment on price as it was over 12 years ago so won't be at all realistic.

Replacing with a double glazed timber window, with acoustic glass - yes, crazy expensive, but shop around and you'll get better quotes. PM if you'd like a recommendation. It makes a huge difference to noise and heat.

I've used Duration Windows for our single glazed sashes. They've been excellent. If you order through a builder you can get a trade price, and they're relatively simple to fit yourself too if you want it even cheaper. Just make sure you measure accurately (twice)!

once stayed in a hotel in Essex (old Victorian building) which had secondary glazing windows done by selectaglaze (name was on the frames, hence I know the manufacturer). secondary glazing made quite a difference, as we had it in our room, but not in the hall, so was able to compare.
