Draughty Sash Windows Renovated in Grade II Listed Property

A picturesque Georgian property in Taunton has bid a fond farewell to its draughty sash windows, thanks to the help of renovation experts Ventrolla.

Ventrolla was appointed by Mr. and Mrs. Gamble to tackle the breezes sweeping through their family home, which resulted in the windows rattling, along with some rotting timbers in the sills and frames.

Eleven two-metre-high sash windows were installed with the unique Ventrolla Perimeter Sealing System (VPSS), closing the gaps around the windows to eradicate the draughts and rattles.

This involved routing out grooves of the mid and bottom rail and installing pile carriers with the correct sized weatherfin pile, making the seal an integral part of the window.  In addition, the system helps to reduce external noise intrusion and has energy saving qualities which help to reduce heat loss.

One window required specific attention due to years of rot. With the timber beyond repair, Ventrolla supplied a bespoke replacement window frame in keeping with the period property’s aesthetics.

Mrs. Gamble said: 

“I’m thrilled with the outcome of the work. It has made a huge difference, improving the comfort of our home as we no longer have to put up with cold draughts. We’re also pleased to be benefiting from the added bonus of noise reduction.”

“From start to finish Ventrolla where very professional, completing the work promptly and to a high standard which is why I have already recommended them to friends.”

The Gambles are currently in the midst of a major renovation of their Grade II Listed property, located on a six-acre estate in Adsborough, where they have lived for the past four years.

Established for over 35 years’ Ventrolla offers a bespoke renovation service for timber sliding sash and casement windows as well as timber doors.
