Project Summary

The client strived to bring a Victorian look to this house, which was blighted with a number of unsightly features. These included slabs affixed to the front of the property, while its old metal windows also lent it a distinctly un-Victorian air.

However, the client remained eager to make the property more thermally efficient, too – as a large amount of air was entering the property, which was losing precious heat.

We recognised that uPVC would be a suitably low-maintenance choice of material for this new home’s sash windows – and that we could make these visually indistinguishable from authentic Victorian windows.

The Solution

The metal windows were removed and uPVC sash windows installed in their place. We judged this to be the best solution for the client, as they did not want any ambience in the home.

They also did not want to have to worry about their next windows increasingly suffering from deteriorating paint or rotting wood over time. Either of these issues emerging with the windows would have necessitated potentially expensive upkeep the client was keen to avoid.

All in all, five uPVC sash windows were fitted to the front of this home, with four windows of the same type installed at the back. We also put a Victorian front door in place.

Client Feedback & Testimonial

" My goal from the start was to make this home look unmistakably Victorian through and through – and the Vintage Sash team have done a tremendous job with the new sash windows and door they fitted for me. Now, I have the best of both worlds – a Victorian-style home that doesn’t feel chilly. I’m so grateful for the professionalism and expertise Vintage Sash showed at every stage. "
