Heritage Sash Windows
yoursashwindows.com are passionate about preserving listed buildings. That’s why we pay such close attention to detail when refurbishing and replacing heritage sash windows in conservation areas throughout the country.
If you live in just such an area, there are some additional layers of regulation of which you need to be aware before making any alterations to your property. This is because Conservation Areas are protected areas of special architectural and historic interest where unique and distinctive features must be preserved. If you live in a Conservation Area, your local planning authority (LPA) will let you know what you can and can’t do to your house when you purchase it and should keep you updated of any changes to their guidance.
If you wish to carry out repairs or maintenance on your heritage sash windows, your LPA must make an assessment of your property and the planned work to ensure that the building’s character and appearance will not be negatively affected. ‘Article 4 Directions’ allow this process to occur. If the work is deemed to be in keeping with the area’s character, planning officials will provide approval.
At yoursashwindows.com we design, manufacture and install heritage sash windows which very often satisfy Article 4 Directives. We work exclusively with wood to ensure an authentic finish which is sympathetic to a building’s appearance. Thanks to our craftsmen’s attention to detail and years of experience, we are able to improve your home’s security and energy efficiency without compromising on its aesthetic appeal. We can even install double-glazing units that feature a range of traditional detailing to ensure they meet planning controls.
As we bespoke manufacture everything at our Stockport-based workshop, we can also incorporate unusual designs and details into your windows and provide exact replicas of your original frames if a replacement is necessary.
