Steve Sheriff are secondary glazing specialists based in Dorset, who work on older homes, listed buildings and churches to upgrade older windows with secondary glazing to prevent draughts and to improve the safety and security. Secondary glazing offers a solution that doesn’t compromise the integrity of the original windows, which is why the client got in touch to order bespoke secondary glazing to windows in a converted church in Somerset.
We were commissioned to produce 8 panels of our bespoke secondary glazing, to fit within the existing windows in St. John the Evangelist Church in Highbridge, Somerset. The converted church has elegant windows, and the decision was made to contact secondary glazing specialists to reinforce these to ensure durability.
Getting to Work
Before we get started fitting secondary glazing to the windows we carried out a thorough clean and inspection of the primary glazing in place.
To prepare for the secondary glazing, we use 4mm clear float glass cut to each size and shape of the window. We toughen the glass for safety purposes, and then a sealant is applied to the edge of each glass pane, forming a bond.
The benefit with choosing secondary glazing is that it requires no framework and is almost invisible once fitted, thus the integrity and safety is reinforced with no compromise to the beautiful design of the converted church windows.
We offer secondary glazing for period homes, listed buildings and more – please send us through your requirements to arrange a consultation. Alternatively, we offer triple glazing if you’re looking for an extra layer of warmth and protection. Use our online form or call 01202 882208 to discuss your project with our friendly team.
