We carried out work on this property that needed refurbishment to a total of 6 casement and sash windows and 2 doors. A casement is a window that is attached to its frame by one or more hinges at the side. They are used singly or in pairs within a common frame, and are hinged on the outside. A sash window has a different structure, it is also called a ‘hung’ sash window and is made of one or more movable panels, or ‘sashes’, The individual sashes are traditionally paned windows and the ones in this property have 2 panes in both the top and bottom panel, commonly known as ‘2 over 2’.
All the casement and sash windows on this project, including the doors had a complete refurbishment, so that any rotten or mouldy wood was removed and repaired or replaced to prevent any further damage. We also installed our draught proofing system to help keep the property warm and save money on heating. The windows and frames were then sanded, primed and given a topcoat on both the interior and exterior, and the quality brass fittings really enhanced the finished fresh look, which will last for a long time to come.
At HRG Services we offer a full draught proofing package using top quality materials which are in keeping with the age and charm of any type of windows. We also promote conservation of existing fixtures and fittings, though sometimes the damage is too great and a completely new window may need to be installed, which was the case with the top velux window in this home. But as you can see, when a new window is fitted we ensure the finished look is in keeping with the rest of the property and the overall look retains its elegance and symmetry.
We love the end result, and as our ethos is to ‘Repair – Restore – Improve – Replace’ we take great pride in doing all we can to retain as many of the original components and features that we can.
Great job, lovely team to work with, the building looks fantastic
