This charismatic Victorian terrace, built in 1885, sits in the heart of Harrogate. Miss McKenzie acquired the property 10 years ago, and, other than general maintenance and decoration, has not had to undertake any major work. The sash windows were the originals, and although they’d been refurbished in the past, they were still draughty, cold and hard to operate.

“In winter, you could see the curtains blowing in the wind”

says Miss McKenzie.

A good friend had previously used Timber Windows in 2011 and been very happy, therefore recommending Miss McKenzie visit her local showroom in Harewood to see what was available,

“the showroom was amazing, what a lovely setting and the people were all lovely too”

she adds.

Advanced Technology

Due to her property being in a conservation area, sympathetic, like-for-like, wooden replacement sash windows were a must. In total 16 sliding sash windows were installed, all manufactured in Engineered European Redwood, which is the same timber as the original windows, but now constructed in a technically advanced way. All the windows were pre-finished in ‘White’ with new decorative cover boards internally.

A Warmer Home

Although visually the property remains full of traditional charm, the new ultra-efficient double-glazed units filled with krypton gas make the world of difference to the feel of the home.

“The difference is massive”

says Miss McKenzie

“It was very hard to keep the house warm in winter due to all of the draughts. Heat retention is so much better now that I even have the windows open on occasion to allow a flow of air”.
