People often say that things just aren’t built like they used to be, but sometimes things just need that modern touch. A classic car with a restored engine, a record player with modern speaker system or a one hundred year old townhouse with restored sash windows. Let’s look at some of the benefits of sash windows restoration.
If you’ve ever seen a classic townhouse,one of the first things you’ll notice is the sash windows. While built with an ingenious design, there are often faults that can be rectified with a modern restoration and the use of modern technology. If you’ve ever lived in a classic home, one of the first things you’ll notice is the rattle of the windows during strong winds. From the winds you’ll also notice the breeze of a cool draught flowing through the house. After this you’ll try to open and close the windows to end the rattle only to find that it’s a real struggle. What’s more, when you look closely at the window you’ll notice it is single glazed – further heat loss! So what do you do about this? The answer is sash windows restoration or repair.
While many modern window replacements will be made of UPVC, there is still the possibility to replace your sash windows with a more authentic treated timber. To compliment this, double glazing will allow heat to stay within the house on those cool days. To finish it off, modern and secure window furniture will complete the look.
