Sash window renovation and repair expert’s Ventrolla have once again weaved its magic on a beautiful grade ii listed building, freeing a family farmhouse from its tired and draughty windows.
Wimbrick House in Ormskirk, Lancashire, had fallen into disrepair and was in dire need of some TLC. Luckily Mr and Mrs Marsters saw the farmhouse as the perfect family home and decided to bring the property back to life, ready to spend Christmas together.
In total fourteen sash windows received a complete renovation by Ventrolla Lancashire, including new sash cords, shutters and casings to ensure the sashes open freely. The windows were then stripped, re-pointed and decorated to complete the job.
Four windows were completely replicated as the originals could not be rescued. This included the two classic arched windows to the sides of both elevations and two Yorkshire sliders to the front of the Boot Room.
Additionally the planners were very accommodating in allowing the introduction of patio doors to the rear garden. Ventrolla provided classic 2.6 metre patio doors matching the design of the original windows.
The unique Ventrolla Perimeter Sealing System (VPSS) a process that improves and upgrades the performance of the windows by draught-proofing and eliminating rattles, was installed. This provides enhanced energy efficiency without altering the appearance of the window. Paul Marsters, the owner of Wimbrick House, said:
“The windows had been neglected and were in a bad way when we bought the property. They needed a lot of attention to bring them back into working order”
“The house was blighted by draughts and rattles coming from the windows and some were completely inoperable”
“We had planned to move the family in for winter so it was very important to get the house draught free for the children. I was very happy with the work Ventrolla did and thankful we could all celebrate Christmas together in our new home”
