How We Got Started
Robert turned his hand to draught proofing sash windows after his wife noticed it becoming increasingly difficult to keep their home warm during the colder months and so Bob, using his expertise at Ford developed the first perimeter sealing system and installed it himself.
Immediately the draughts, rattles and dust ingress were banished! After the initial success of the hand-made prototype Bob went on to found Ventrolla and patented both the perimeter sealing system and the sash removal system, both of which, 30 years on are still core products in the Ventrolla service and make our offering unique.
In 1986 the Ventrolla Perimeter Sealing System was awarded the prestigious Design Council Award.
Our first branch opened in the beautiful North Yorkshire town of Harrogate and now over 30 years and 50,000 sash windows later we operate nation wide and have established ourselves as the market leader in the repair, restoration and replacement of wooden sash windows.
