Are Georgian sash windows the perfect windows? The ultimate in symmetry and design? Period homes are a finite resource and are in constant demand. That is despite the draughts and obligatory extra layers of clothing that we need to enjoy the high ceilings and views through the single glazed panes.
Fortunately for us, there have been huge advancements in glazing and timber joinery. As such, we can continue to remark on the ceiling roses and dado rails as well as keeping our heating bills down. You too can live in modern luxury with the most ultimately beautiful windows and not worry that you are single-handedly destroying the planet with your oil fired central heating turned on ad infinitum.
Here we focus on recent restorations that Timeless Sash Windows undertook in Ireland. Some have retained their single glazing for conservation reasons but we have restored and draught proofed the timber frames and sashes. In other windows we have fitted slimline double glazing to keep the narrow profiles of the glazing bars.
If you have any questions, our surveyors are experts in period window restoration and can give you the best advice. We also work closely with architects and builders to keep plans running on time and to budget. Our office in Trim is open Monday – Friday from 9am -5pm on 046-9023323.
