Ventrolla, the sash window renovation specialist, has successfully completed an £80,000 project on 44 residential flats in Greenwich.

Ventrolla renovated 44 sash windows over a three-month period in order to correct a number of problems with energy retention and ambient noise.

The flats were originally part of a Victorian school, which was converted 10 years ago. The sash windows, however, were not renovated at the time.

Now Ventrolla has refurbished all sash windows at the premises with many of the sash units being totally removed and repaired.

Soundproofing was a key factor in the project with residents keen to see the issue of noisy sash windows finally resolved.

Ventrolla installed its unique Perimeter Sealing System (VPSS) into the gap surrounding the window sashes, which then eradicates rattles and also reduces draughts and dirt ingress.

Martin Northey, Project Surveyor at Collinstown Construction, which oversaw the scheme, said:

“This particular project needed to be handled with the utmost of care as the residents were still occupying their homes while work took place.”

To keep things running as smoothly as possible, all communication went through liaison officers who booked appointments with the 44 residents for Ventrolla to work on their sash windows.

We are extremely pleased with the improvements Ventrolla’s sealing system has made to the performance of the sash windows in the flats. The project ran without any hitches and all of the residents were thoroughly impressed with the final results.
