Can I install CosyGlazing in my listed building?

Yes. Conservation officers love CosyGlazing because it’s both reversible (you can take it out, leaving your windows intact and unaltered) and invisible from the outside which makes it approved for listed buildings. It’s virtually invisible from the inside too, which means your beautiful listed windows will still look stunning while keeping your home warmer.

Nine out of 10 conservation officers across southern England agree that CosyGlazing does not require listed building consent for Grade I , Grade II or Grade II* listed buildings. However, we always recommend that you contact your conservation officer to get their view. Very occasionally they will ask homeowners to file a Listed Building Consent Application (which is free), however we have never had an application turned down. The main reason for this is that CosyGlazing preserves the historic fabric of the windows, is virtually invisible and allows you to open your windows as usual. If the installation of CosyGlazing also involves refurbishing the window, it lasts even longer which preserves the architectural heritage.

If you have concerns, we are happy to make a discrete enquiry with your conservation officer on your behalf, and also can manage your application process if you wish.
