"The windows are now fully operable and there are no draughts! We were delighted to be able to renovate the existing windows and the results are fantastic.”
Two casement bay windows and 32 sash windows were restored at the presbytery, home to the church’s three priests and the main location for the running of the parish.
The bay windows of the Cheshire church were suffering from wet rot and Ventrolla used its expertise to repair the wood ensuring the original aesthetics of the windows were not lost.
Before the restoration, the windows also had operational issues with some stuck shut and others draughty.
Ventrolla installed its unique Perimeter Sealing System (VPSS) to draught proof the windows, making them more energy efficient and less prone to leaks.
Canon John Rafferty commented: “The renovations at the presbytery have made a huge difference to the building. The windows are now fully operable and there are no draughts! We were delighted to be able to renovate the existing windows and the results are fantastic.”
John added: “As both our home and a busy parish office, we were really grateful to the Ventrolla team for fitting in with the presbytery schedule and ensuring there was minimum disruption.”
