Mr. Thornton

Description of work


Mr. Thornton is the owner of a Victorian listed property in Helensburgh built around 1883.
Many additions had been added to the original house around 1910 and the building became Grade B listed in 1993.

The customer contacted SWRS with the view to refurbishing some of the original casement windows. After carefully surveying the windows it became apparent the wet rot was so extensive on 6 of the windows that they were simply beyond the state of repair.
This included a bay of 4 and a double window.

To ensure the replacement windows matched like-for-like, samples of the original moulding detail where taken. Another challenge that we faced was to have the original lead reinstated into the top sashes. This was carefully removed and repairs were carried out. They were then sympathetically reinstated back into the new sash frames to convey the original appearance.

We also carried out refurbishment work to several other original casement windows in the house; upgrading their energy efficiency by installing our discreet draught-proofing system.

The work was carried out in an efficient manner and within anticipated timescales which kept disruption to a minimum for the customer.

"As the owner of a listed Victorian property, it was with a degree of trepidation that I viewed the prospect of having some windows replaced. In the event my fears were groundless, SWRS were on hand. A young, disciplined, careful and caring operator, Alan is hands-on, extremely competent and professional. His planning was meticulous and he delivered, on timetable, a completed project beyond my expectation. Based on my experience, I would highly recommend SWRS to anyone requiring repairs or replacement to timber framed windows of any quality or design."
