house and you might be unsure as how to proceed in replacing your windows. In keeping with the demand for improved insulation from both user and Building Regulations points of view the path to energy efficient period windows lies with your local planning authorities 'default process' that gives allowance for period properties. We therefore consult directly with your local planning and building control office to ensure our installations meet the correct standards for your period house.
Much has been done by us and others in this specialised field to improve the thermal and
acoustic properties of replacement copy period windows.

When considering renewing
your windows please bear in mind that 'part' replacement, ie. keeping and renovating your main framework, that which is generally made from more substantial timber members than the sashes and simply renewing those glazed sliding sashes is generally considered as best practice and is un-regulated by Building Regs.
