Traditional Timber Windows and Doors, The Cotswolds

Cotswolds home improvement renovation project

“Could not be better – first class”

The Sash Window Workshop were contacted by a couple looking to renovate their period property in the Cotswolds by installing replacement windows.

Their current windows were 2 over 2 sash windows, but these didn’t suit the style of their home so they wanted to get an idea what other styles of sash windows would look like to restore the property to be more period appropriate.

Their enquiry was assigned to our sales surveyor who sent them examples of what 3 over 3 sash windows, 4 over 4 sash windows and 6 over 6 sash windows would look like and discussed the different options with them. After discussing with the customer, a quote was sent across for replacement 6 over 6 sash windows and new doors.

The customer decided to split the work required across several separate orders between October 2020 and July 2021.  After the initial order was placed, they also decided to upgrade the casement sashes in their casement kitchen window.

As the property was in a conservation area and the windows were not being replaced like-for-like, the customer needed to obtain planning permission for the new windows. After the order was placed with us, we did a manufacturing survey and sent across detailed drawings to accompany their planning permission request.

The door and windows were then made to the couple’s exact requirements in our workshops. They were manufactured in Accoya, which comes with a 50 year anti-rot guarantee, and were finished in a bespoke semi-gloss paint.

After the windows and door were manufactured, they were installed by our skilled fitters.

In total, across both the orders, 1 complete new window and 2 complete new French doors were manufactured and installed for the customer, along with 24 sets of windows (sliding sash and casement) having new sashes manufactured and installed into the existing window frames.

Since completing the work, the customer has commented that the product and service was excellent and noted that they would recommend us to others.

The customer has since placed another order for additional work to be carried out at the property.
