Before having the work carried out our flat was very cold and draughty in the winter months. We believed that having double glazing would help reduce the draughts and heat loss through the glass, reducing our energy consumption. As we had recently redone the plastering and decoration in our flat, were looking for a solution that would be the least intrusive to avoid turning the flat into a building site again.
In 2014 we were approached by an interior contracting company who were looking to replace the timber windows and doors for a property in South West London.
At The Sash Window Workshop, we are regularly contacted by home owners who have windows in their homes which are inappropriate for the property, spoiling the look and feel of their home and reducing of the value of the property.
We are also contacted by potential customers who are buying a new home and would like a budget price to replace poor quality or unsympathetic windows, so they can negotiate money off the purchase price of the property.
We decided to purchase new windows and doors as our 1960 / 1970s patio sliding door and the windows that we had at our house were very thin, and didn’t feel very secure.
As new windows and doors are an expensive purchase, we wanted to ensure that they would be of high quality and built to last, so we wouldn’t need to be replacing them a few years later. The standard of the work was therefore very important, so we wanted to be able to see the quality of the work before purchasing.
At The Sash Window Workshop, we are accustomed to providing comprehensive solutions to the complex problems our customers face with their windows and doors. Recently, we were approached by a customer who lived in a beautiful 18th Century listed building in the heart of the Berkshire countryside. The listed nature of the building was such that the customers were prevented from replacing their windows completely. Several windows across the property were in need of attention, some were letting more draughts in than others, and some could not close properly.
I purchased an apartment within a mansion block in North West London. Chosen for space, location and beautiful views it was in desperate need of complete refurbishment. This included building work, heating, plumbing and electrics. The windows also required urgent attention.
In 2006 we purchased a run down 1960's farmhouse in Gloucestershire with the vision to transform it into an elegant family home. Our project was huge and required detailed planning, attention to detail and a vision for what could be achieved. Choosing the right windows and doors for the project was a crucial part of our building plan.
Anna van Dongen, Interior Designer for her own company, Space Matters was contracted to completely refurbish a stylish Edwardian Apartment in North London. Her client had particularly wanted a complete change to the feel and layout of the apartment and wanted a finish of perfection. Part of the refurbishment required is the replacement of a triple aspect sash window bay.
