renovation & restoration of a Victorian home

Having moved into this 1878 Victorian property, the Roberts family begun undertaking a large-scale renovation of the home right away.

“We moved in seven years ago and started renovating the house then. We gave the builder at the time free reign when it came to the windows and unfortunately the choice he made was poor. It had only been 7 years and they already needed replacing!”

At the time of purchasing the property, it was in a poor state, with many of the original Victorian features and detailing stripped out in favour of modern detailing. It was Mrs Roberts goal to have as many of these original features put back into the house as possible.

As part of this project, Mr and Mrs Roberts scoured the length of the country to find suppliers of reclaimed bricks and other materials, that would perfectly match the originals of the house.

After their previous experience with the builder, Mrs Roberts project managed the latest works closely herself, and came across the Timber Windows showroom in Harborne where she received some expert advice from the team.

meticulous attention to detail that adds value

“The team at the showroom have done such a fantastic job of recreating the original windows and the installation process was simple! Their attention to detail is meticulous and honestly, I wish I had known about them the first-time round!”

While the new windows have improved the appearance of the house with its traditional Victorian styling, the benefits do not stop there.

“An estate agent has since visited and valued the house. They advised that it is exactly what prospective buyers look for, a traditional appearance that is also modern and functional”

Mrs Roberts concludes.
