It went fine, thanks everyone for the advice.

I'll be back in a month with another question. :lol:

Has anyone installed secondary windows to their home? I'm looking to get it done to reduce outside noise from coming into my flat but not DIY as seems quite complicated. I've seen them at my office where you just slide them open/shut to access the main window. Apparently they can reduce outside noise by 80%.

Usually only see them in offices / commercial buildings.

Would you be allowed to do it in your rented property?

I would try thicker curtains (black out type) in the first instance.

Thats where I got the idea from as our office has them. Im not renting so it'll be fine plus you don't need planning permission and its not creating any structural changes. If was renting then I simply would have moved out. I've found some local companies that do it near me via google, will get some quotes tomorrow. So excited that I finally found a potential solution to my noise issues.
