Georgian style timber traditional sash windows
This is an early Georgian property and the customer requested a modern equivalent of the original timber sash windows. They needed all the benefits of 28mm double glazing that you get with modern sash windows, traditional glazing bars (which sit on the outside of the unit to give the effect of individual panes), coupled with decorative horns and traditional ropes and weights with brass fittings on the inside. It was very much a like for like replacement.
As soon as the client contacted us, we arranged a site visit to assess their existing windows so that we could look at the detail and ensure that we were going to be manufacturing like for like replacements. This included everything from the bars, decorative horns and the colour of the furniture. On the inside, we made sure we achieved a like for like replacement for the architrave and window boards, which in this instance were necessary to replace, as part of the whole package.
Once the client had decided to proceed, they came to the showroom to run through all the finer details with us. We then sent our company surveyor out to complete a thorough survey and take care of all the health and safety elements, even as far as protecting the customer’s rose bushes, through to putting carpet protectors down. All this attention to detail ensures we provide outstanding customer care. There is usually a 10-12 week lead time, during which we process and order the materials. Our Operations Administration Team are in regular contact with the client providing regular updates during this time. When it comes to installation day, we only use our own experienced teams of fitters, employed directly by us, to ensure all the work is carried out to an exceptionally high standard.
Our range of traditional Georgian timber sash windows with brass fittings were perfect for this project.
We are partnered with a prestigious UK based joinery company who manufacture our hardwood Georgian timber sash windows to our specifications. We needed to replicate every detail of the existing windows, from the bars, horns, furniture and colour. Before any order is placed, our customer signed our comprehensive survey sheets, to ensure all details were covered.
The clients were over the moon with the end result. Their choice was perfect for their property and the high quality materials really finished the job. Our products all come with a 10 year guarantee. They also now benefit from reduced maintenance and they gain the thermal benefits. Most importantly, they have retained the look of their Georgian period property.
