If you own a listed property and would like to replace the windows, you can simply order UPVC or aluminium double glazed windows, as they would look out of place in a property with such character. The only solution is to source a joinery company that has experience in replacing windows in older properties, and with top quality joiners in Plymouth, you are sure of a first class job.
Choosing the Right Style
This is something the joiner can help with, as he has a wealth of experience in replacing windows in properties of character, and here are a few designs that might be suitable:
- Leaded Lights (diamond or square)
- Traditional sash windows
There would also be several species of wood that might be suitable, and the joiner would make you aware of the choices and even make a recommendation. The timber would be seasoned and treated prior to fabricating the windows, and, of course, double glazed units would be incorporated into the design, which will prevent major heat loss through the windows.
Each window is made to fit the opening, and with your choice of opening styles, the end product would look in keeping with the property. Hand crafting windows is very skilled work and the units would be fabricated at the workshop and fitted minus the double glazed units, which would be inserted after the frames are fixed securely.
If you would like to explore the potential that hand crafted wooden windows can offer, a Google search would put you in touch with a local joinery firm, and you can take it from there.
