CosyGlazing, allows you to enhance your existing windows, open them in smoothly summer, reduce energy bills and stay warmer in winter
CosyGlazing is and advanced secondary glazing system developed and tested over seven years that is elegant, effective and unobtrusive. We use plexiglass – a modern, lightweight equivalent to glass that’s used in the aeronautical industry – to provide a second layer to your period windows.
Our secondary glazing is unobtrusive and smart. In can be supplied in white or in a wooden frame to complement your Cornish property. We can even paint it in a Farrow & Ball tone to match your existing windows.
In addition to installing CosyGlazing we also provide a full window restoration service. We will leave you with stunningly restored and painted windows with matching secondary glazing and smart fittings that will find you looking at your windows as much as looking through them.
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.
