Our clients approached us in August 2010 looking for a quotation for five new double glazed sash and case windows, panel work and other aspects of joinery for their grade B listed property in Murrayfield Avenue.
Their windows would originally have been sash and case but, had been removed in the 50′s and replaced with single pane, pivot windows.
As the property is listed, the replacement was not a straight forward procedure. We took various dimensions and profiles from some of the other properties on the street which still had their original windows. Then working together with the client and the local planning authority, drawings were submitted and passed for the re-instatement of the new windows.
We then manufactured the new windows in the the original proportions but with double glazed units. We also fitted a timber mullion externally to replicate the stone mullion which had been removed. Victorian style ogee mouldings were used and a 60/40 split was used.
The client recovered the original shutters from the front window, so we formed new panelwork round the new windows to house these shutters and manufactured new panelwork and facings in the other rooms.
The new wood was then given an antique waxed finish to match the colour of the original shutters and the windows were all glossed externally. [nggallery id=14]
