The owners of this Victorian property have completed an extensive restoration removing all windows, the roof and the rear wall of the property. They chose to maintain an authentic period facade to the front and the side of the building whilst modernising the rear of the property to create an open plan modern living space. It was clear from that start of the build that this is no standard glazing installation and would require a company with a large product range and an understanding of period properties.
One of the main considerations of the build was to overhaul the energy efficiency of the building improving the insulation, heating system and upgrading the glazing from single glazing sash windows to double glazed sash in the front. Triple glazed Centor bi-folding doors were fitted to the rear of the property vastly improving acoustic and thermal performance, as well as the security of the building.
Throughout the installation, careful planning was needed as the windows and door were required at different stages of the restoration. In particular, the sash windows were needed to be installed in-between the old plastered being knocked off the wall and the new plaster being applied to ensure we were able to achieve the look that the client desired.
