Windows contribute to the character of any home; for listed properties they are of critical aesthetic value. For all listed properties there will come a time when the windows will need proper attention and it is important for planning applications that any replacements replicate the original windows to help preserve historic integrity.
A number of Wood Window Alliance members provide customised wood windows that match the originals. One such member is The Sash Window Workshop . A recent project was the replacement of nine wooden casement windows and two wooden French doorsets at a listed property in Berkshire.
The Sash Window Workshop worked with the owners of the listed property to ensure that the casement window and French door designs aligned with the details stipulated by the planners. Listed property planning consent can sometimes be a lengthy process and the company helped ensure that the homeowners complied with the exact specifications both pre- and post-planning. Detailed drawings were provided so that the client could use the drawings as part of their planning application.
The homeowners were so delighted with the service and products supplied by The Sash Window Workshop that they have since come back to the company to arrange the replacement of other remaining windows.
