An Edinburgh homeowner turns to Ventrolla for a second time to restore the working order of their sash windows.
The combination of decaying timber frames and ill-fitting sashes made two windows of a period Edinburgh home difficult to open. It’s a common problem with original sash windows which means that you can’t open the windows when you want to let the fresh air in. However, it also causes draughts, making your home cold when you would rather keep the heat in. The windows were simply no longer functional. The homeowners listed the issues as: “Draughts, rotten timber frames, windows sticking and difficult to open”
It’s a familiar story for many a period property owner; it’s easy to love the distinctive character and original details that give such homes enduring appeal. However, these same features can pose challenges when their appearance has faded over time, or they no longer function quite as well as they used to.
In the case of period timber windows, the challenges caused by aging can have a big impact.
When the owners of a handsome Victorian property were looking to faithfully replace some of the original windows in their 1870s Edinburgh home, a friend recommended that they enlist the help of Ventrolla, the period window specialists.
