“It’s very exciting having the house filled with a camera crew and film stars. I could never have imagined that windows would make the property famous.”
Halton Hall, located in the Yorkshire Dales National Park, invested in window specialist Ventrolla’s unique Sash Removal System (SRS) which proved an important attraction for the film company.
The removable function of the windows allowed them to easily remove the existing sash windows and replace them with rotten-looking ones to create the impression of a derelict building and produce the effect of the property being on fire.
Afterwards, the sashes were simply slotted back in place leaving the building looking as good as new.
Homeowner Doug MacLeod, said: “It’s very exciting having the house filled with a camera crew and film stars. I could never have imagined that windows would make the property famous.”
After purchasing the property in 1995, Doug instructed Ventrolla North Yrokshire to install the SRS and at the same time had the Ventrolla Perimeter Sealing System (VPSS) fitted.
This treated the leaks after pools of water gathered on the sills and eradicated rattles and draughts that Doug and his family experienced.
“We would be sat in front of the fire with our knees getting hot but our backs freezing cold from the icy draughts from the sash windows, before Ventrolla did the work.”
Halton Hall has also recently been hired as filming location by TV chef Jamie Oliver.
Ventrolla offers a bespoke renovation service for timber sliding sash and casement windows as well as timber doors.
The company’s central office is in Harrogate, North Yorkshire, with regional Ventrolla offices located throughout the UK and Ireland.
