This is our specialist area of expertise having renovated some of the oldest sash windows in Ireland. We have worked closely with heritage professionals in the past to achieve the best results for period properties and listed buildings all over Ireland.
We liaise with conservation officers in local authorities and Grade 1 Conservation Architects to achieve the best possible outcome for listed buildings.
Your home may not be listed but we will treat it with the same care and attention that we give to protected buildings. This ensures the longevity of your windows whilst improving your insulation and the smooth operation of your windows.
Whenever possible, we always prefer to renovate the existing timber due to its quality, and generally can give a new lease of life to sash and casement windows, French windows and doors.
Our Renovation process takes care to conserve as much of the window and its glass as possible. This is an essential part of the conservation process as outlined by the Irish Georgian Society and Department of the Environment (www.environ.ie).
Sometimes it is impossible to save the window and it needs replacement.
Whether you are commercial client or domestic customer we are always available to speak with you personally about the best course of action for your windows.
