I recently had a Winsulite-style window with double-glazing and winder installed in my house. It does the job I wanted it for(to make a room sound-proof and airtight) perfectly, and the winder allows me to air the room when I want. Also, the winder has a beautiful smooth action, very different from other window winders I have encountered, as they are notorious for being stiff and hard to wind.
Furthermore, the staff at Winsulation were good to deal with, and I would recommend you contact them for your glazing and sound-proofing needs.
I am very satisfied with this product.

Wish I had Winsulation in my last house
I researched Double Glazing many years ago in the country to reduce the noise of my neighbours and their dog, but opted for roller shutters instead. The shutters were great for the heat from the sun with some noise reduction. I recently moved to the city and researched double glazing in case of traffic noise. I did not need it for the traffic, but the howling dog was an unexpected challange! I had Secondary double glazing installed in the bedrooms and the ensuite bathroom. The results are amazing, far superior to the roller shutters, with the...added benefit of excellent heat reduction in summer and heat retention in winter. The team was friendly, effecient and professional from start to finish. This company is a pleasure to deal with and set the bar high in every aspect. Don't listen to the negative reviews, if you expect double glazing to work with a non double glazed window next to it, then mabey the product is not for you. Listen to the advice from the experts in the field, I would not have a house without it.
Had the side of the house facing the railway line and M1 secondary glazed and when the trains go past can now hear the TV. Had a problem with the sliding door being wrong but the problem was rectified. The tradesman and his off sider where very good and so happy to see someone who cleans up afterwards. Happy with our decision to install this product.
Even better than we thought it would be
This has been a very happy experience, the man who did the original quote, the man who did the second measure up and the installation team have all been very professional and friendly. The original advice was install in six to eight weeks and it has been only six weeks. The product is doing better than we had hoped it would, our house is quiet and cooler Thank you
Excellent product and setvice
We had secondary glazing fitted to our bedroom. The finished job is excellent - actually better than we imagined. It looks so good that you wouldn't really know we had anything done at all - which is a great result. The fitters also removed and refitted our blind perfectly. The fitters (Ray and friend) were very professional in all regards and very efficient. We're definitely impressed all round.
Overpromise under deliver
Told 2-4 weeks for install, took 8 wks. They ordered the wrong colour. Blamed it on the customer and refused any discount for the lateness and appalling service. Their staff blamed each other- no one took responsibility and the manager didn't bother to contact despite my requests
The product does not work and Winsulation refused to remove the product and give a refund. Installation stuff did not turn up at pre arranged install date no phone call and no apology. Left mess after install and didn't clean up. Cut glass to the wrong size no apology given. When issues were raised regarding the product not working Winsulation threatened legal action. We can still hear the road noise as if they product was never installed. Promised up to 80% reduction in noise it would not ever be 10%. Save you money and your sanity do not buy this product. All staff were rude and attempted to pass the buck onto others.
Big difference to noise levels
Great guys quoting/installing. We have barking dogs all around and there is a huge improvement with the noise levels now.
Update March 2017- still really pleased with the reduction in noise, and an unexpected bonus-the 2 bedrooms with the double glazing have been noticeably cooler over summer versus the same size one that still has just the old window.
Noticed the Difference - Day 1
Just a short note from both of us to say how pleased we are with our new winsulation. We have both noticed a big difference already. We also would like to specially mention Linus and how impressed we are with his great craftsmanship. He has an eye for attention to detail with the result being that the build is hardly noticeable and non-intrusive ie it looks as if part of the original building. It has exceeded our expectations.
I have extremely noisy neighbours and this secondary glazing has changed my living conditions. I can close up all the winows and doors and it is all shut out. It is an mazing product. I was considering selling up and moving away from an area and home I am very happy with. I cannot recommend the products highly enough. It does not completely cut out bass but cuts it down considerably but I was told that it would only decrease that but it completely cuts out loud conversation. Not cheap but worth every cent.
Questions & Answers
Has any used Winsulation to install double glazed windows in a 2 storey brick veneer home? Has it been successful
in reducing noise?
In my experience, yes. It has been great in reducing noise. We had them installed in our apartment, solid brick with render. On a main road, it did a great job in reducing the noice. Would I use them again? Probably not. The installation was not great, the quality of the products used is not great, and the price is quite high, and the margins are high cos you can really push them down. After sales was OK, but that was more the staff and less management. Management wanted to charge me to come out and fix their problems. So the system of double glazing is brilliant and I would use it again. Just not sure about using that company again to do my windows. Its worth shopping around.
I am very happy with the product. It has made an obvious difference in reducing noise. I have had two separate installations and have been happy each time.
They are quite expensive.
