The company were contacted to work on a project improving the energy efficiency of a 3 storey Victorian terraced property in West London. The work was done in stages, with the initial quote for one new casement window and for replacement sashes (the moving parts of the window) in two sliding sash windows.
Excellent attention to detail was required to ensure that the new joinery matched the style of the property and that the new sashes would operate smoothly within the existing window frames. This was especially important as the house had dropped over time meaning that several of the windows were out of square and therefore required bespoke sashes to fit them.
The new windows also needed to be double-glazed to help improve the thermal efficiency and reduce noise.
After the customer decided to proceed, the new joinery was manufactured in Bracknell, Berkshire by The Sash Window Workshop. The windows were installed by the company’s fitting team and draught proofed to further improve energy efficiency.
After the initial work was completed, the customer was very happy and decided to place additional orders for a complete new French door and new sashes for 7 box sash windows and 2 large bay windows.
After the work was complete, the customer commented that they are “delighted by the reduction in noise and improved insulation. Always a pleasure to deal with The Sash Window Workshop. Personable and considerate staff. High quality workmanship.”
