Conservation approval for tasteful timber window replacement
Brook House had last been renovated in the 1970s. At this time, the windows were replaced with single glazed wooden replacements. Over time, the windows began to fail and became prone to interior condensation. The owner Paul Hodgkinson states that: ‘I was having to repair and fill the old window frames every other year, plus they caused condensation and damp, it was becoming a losing battle.’
Once Paul decided to replace the old failing windows, he contacted several companies in the local area for designs and prices. He also needed to contact the local Conservation Officer to gain approval for the replacement windows. Unfortunately, the Conservation Officer wasn’t happy with some of the windows. The window bars on some of the options were too thick whereas others were deemed to be unsympathetic with the local area.
Running out of options, Paul discovered George Barnsdale. He liked the look of their timber windows and was put in touch with their local approved partner Lifestyle Windows. From here, the team at Lifestyle managed the entire project from survey to installation. After much discussion, the Conservation Officer finally approved the George Barnsdale Spiral Balance sliding sash windows for the project.
