Sash Windows and Entrance Door
With origins dating back to the early 1700s, and various changes made over time including the front façade built in the mid 1800s, the stunning home of Mr & Mrs Andrew has a very rich heritage, sitting majestically in a village just outside Sheffield.
“If you’re going to take on a house like this, it has to be done right. We want to look after the house and keep it as it should be”
Mr Andrew explains.
“We’re in a Conservation area here so everything has to be done the right way – the sash windows replicate the original single glazed versions very closely.”
The downstairs timber sash windows and front door were the focus of the attention, with the upstairs having previously been attended to by the owners. At almost two metres tall each, the new sash windows are finished in White and manufactured in Engineered European Redwood with fine 18mm astragal bars and hung on traditional cords and weights.
“Everything happened at once with the house – we decided to replace the windows, had the portico reconstructed and the render attended to, matching it to the original finishing method, all at the same time about 18 months ago.”
“We took the advice of an architect on how to go about the renovations – we found Timber Windows because we knew what we wanted and they had the right products on offer”
Mr Andrew says.
“As soon as the windows went in, the house became a lot warmer.”
