Renovation of Sash & Casement Windows

Original windows in a period property can often make a big aesthetical difference in the appearance of the house by adding value and character.

Since the introduction of uPVC there has been a trend to rip out wooden windows and replace them with a plastic version in an attempt to improve the insulation of the house. Home owners are under a constant pressure to make their homes as energy efficient as possible. Replacing the original wooden windows does not have to be your only option. New methods of draft proofing can be used on sash windows very successfully.

Georgian Iron Work

The Georgian home would often have iron foot scrapers, lanterns, flame snuffer and later towards the Regency period a desirable feature would have been an iron balcony or window guard.
