Mission Home – 40 New Sets Of Sashes

Works to the mission home on Spylaw road began in July 2011 involving installation of double glazed sashes to all of the original casements throughout the property. Forty windows were upgraded in total and our teams finished off painting all the refurbished casements and new sashes.

Architects JHRP managed the entire project and our working relationship with them and our clients was smooth. Our clients achieved there aim of increasing the insulation of this large building and retaining the look of the property. Windows were manufactured in oak to tie in with the oak panel work in the drawing room.

Our teams worked throughout July to have the project completed, we have been asked to undertake a further three windows that were left of the original remit. The entire project was in the region of £45,000 but our price was proven to be highly competitive and cost effective for our clients. Below is the specification provided for Mission Home per window;
