Back in 1968 Derrick Smith founded City Sound, at a time when secondary glazing was virtually unknown, despite the growing problem of old Victorian sash windows in London buildings. Although beautiful, these sash windows were often poorly fitting and allowed in all the noise, draughts and dirt of a growing city. As most of the buildings in central London are listed, the thought of changing the original windows for double glazed units was not an option. Rightly so – could you imagine what London would look like today if everyone had installed double glazing to their own design?
This is what prompted Derrick to start up his own secondary glazing company, and it’s true to say that he never looked back. Derrick has now retired (although still has input in the company), his son Andrew has taken over the reins and the company has grown from strength to strength, having built a strong reputation.
Andrew has been involved with City Sound since a young boy, helping his father, and has immense knowledge and experience of the industry. He has the same passion as his father and a boundless vision for driving the company forward. He believes in giving clients the highest level of service with an honest approach.
Andrew has a very dynamic and dedicated team behind him. They all share in his energy and enthusiasm and always willing to go the extra mile. A disciplined and friendly group of people ready to help you whatever your requirement might be.
We all look forward to hearing from you.
