Glebe House, in the idyllic village of Bourton-on-the-Water, was suffering from rotten sash windows that had allowed damp to seep in while others were painted shut.

A grandiose Georgian property boasting 20 bedrooms has been given a bright new outlook, thanks to the experts at Ventrolla Wessex.

Glebe House, in the idyllic village of Bourton-on-the-Water, was suffering from rotten sash windows that had allowed damp to seep in while others were painted shut.

In total, 31 sash windows required Ventrolla’s specialist treatment. The team installed the unique Ventrolla Perimeter Sealing System (VPSS) to help combat the leaks but also to ensure against draughts, rattles and external noise. Any decaying timber was treated and replaced.

Three new casement windows were required during the renovation after rot had left them beyond economical repair. Ventrolla’s expertise was also used to tackle the ageing doors, resulting in five bespoke period doors being made and installed. Architect Keith Lily, who managed the renovation project, said:

After carrying out an assessment of the windows at Glebe House it was clear they were in a terrible state and needed a lot of attention. Having worked with Ventrolla before, I knew they were the professionals needed for this job.

I was again very impressed with Ventrolla and the unique craftsmanship on offer. They understood how important it was to preserve the characteristics of this beautiful home and ensure that the property maintained its period features.

Glebe House is a Grade II listed property owned by Dr Jeremy George. Having been unoccupied for a number of years, the home is undergoing a full renovation to restore its historic charm.

Ventrolla offers a bespoke renovation service for timber sliding sash and casement windows as well as timber doors.  The central office is in Harrogate, North Yorkshire, with additional offices located throughout the UK and Ireland.
