Sash Repairs

If you care about the period detail of your home, always consider renovating your sash windows rather than replacing them with uPVC. Plastic windows always look out of place on a period property. Sash Repairs Limited (based in London) offers the complete service for sash windows with window replacements to renovation and repair work. http://www.sashrepairs.co.uk/

The Conservation and Thermal Improvement of Timber Windows

"The effect of some improvements can be extremely damaging to an historic building or place. Double glazing in particular may involve the loss of the original windows and the introduction of a range of details which can ruin the appearance of the building." http://www.buildingconservation.com/articles/windows/thermal.htm
