"Having experienced Ventrolla first hand through work, they were an obvious choice when it came to renovating my own windows."
With over 20 years’ experience as a Surveyor for listed buildings, Mark Nicholls has worked on a number of restoration projects with the sash window renovation specialists. So when it came to upgrading the sash windows in his Georgian home, there was no debate about which company he would use.
Mark Nicholls said: “Having experienced Ventrolla first hand through work, they were an obvious choice when it came to renovating my own windows.
Also, I am a strong believer in restoration over replacement, especially to preserve the character of period homes, so it’s good to work with companies that share the same ethos.”
The Ventrolla Perimeter Sealing System (VPSS) was installed into six of Mark’s ‘8 over 8 pane’ sash windows to performance upgrade them by eliminating draughts and rattles. A window overhaul was also carried out to amend broken cords and restore the windows to a fully operational condition.
Mark added: “It was really important to draught proof the windows because I live close to the Brecon Beacons National Park, in a relatively exposed location, so the wind can pick up at times.
I’ve already noticed a big difference with the draughts and in particular the noise reduction. As always, I was impressed by Ventrolla’s professionalism and technical knowledge and will continue to recommend them.”
Originally a Georgian farmhouse, the Grade II listed property still has a stone and timber-framed barn and is one of the oldest homes on the street.
Ventrolla offers a bespoke renovation service for timber sliding sash and casement windows, as well as timber doors. The company has its central office in Harrogate, North Yorkshire, with additional locations throughout the UK and Ireland.
