Ventrolla has successfully restored a number of sash windows at a nationally acclaimed grammar school in Wolverhampton.

The work was carried out during the holidays in order to reduce disruption. Out of the 50 windows earmarked for restoration, only two were badly damaged and needed completely overhauling, whilst the rest required only minor repair work to the sashes and sills. Mary Wilmot, Bursar at Wolverhampton Grammar School, said:

“We received outstanding service from Ventrolla. Two members of the team completed the work in just three weeks, which meant the classrooms were ready for use before the start of the new school term.”

“The windows look as if they are brand new, but still maintain their traditional Victorian character, and the rooms are no longer cold and draughty. We plan to get Ventrolla back to carry out repairs on additional windows.”

Wolverhampton Grammar School will shortly be celebrating its 500th anniversary, whilst its current premises on Compton Road date back to 1875. With a strong reputation for academic achievement and extra-curricular activities, the school has 650 pupils.

With over 30 years’ experience, Ventrolla offers a tailored range of period window solutions including repair and renovation, new timber windows, double glazed replacement sashes, secondary glazing solutions and a wide range of window hardware.

The company’s head office is based in Harrogate, North Yorkshire, and regional offices are also located throughout the UK and Ireland.
