Edwardian House, Berkshire
The new windows have made the house more comfortable and nicer to live in, increasing its value.
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.
In short, windows are an essential part of the fabric of any home, and ensuring that you have the right windows really can add significant value to your property. What’s more, installing the right, high quality windows will also help improve the comfort and aesthetic values of your property.
Transforming an Edwardian House in Berkshire
We were recently approached by Mr and Mrs J. who own a lovely early Edwardian home in Berkshire. Unfortunately 20 years ago the previous owner had decided to install cheap uPVC windows at the property, which destroyed the character of their home.
As a specialist in the restoration and replacement of timber windows in period properties, Mr and Mrs J. contacted us. We then arranged for one of our trained surveyors to meet them and advise what their windows should look like, and what we could do, to match the period of the property.
In addition to replacing their 19 sash windows, we also replaced a French door, and provided our draught sealing and double glazing service for their front door. They were delighted with the results.
Making these changes to their home has allowed Mr and Mrs J. to restore their home to its former glory. They now love living with their new traditional, but double glazed windows. This has not only made their home more comfortable and nicer to live in, but has also significantly increased its value.
