London, UK -- (SBWIRE) -- 06/08/2012 -- The sash window repair and restoration specialists of Mill House Window Workshop have become the preferred experts for retaining the original charm and beauty of windows and doors throughout Hertfordshire and the Eastern UK region. The firm specialises in sash window repair and restoration, draughtproofing, glass and glazing, new joinery as well as restoration and customized construction of internal and external wooden doors.
While the old world charm of period homes continues to be an attractor for UK homebuyers, many have concerns and questions when it comes to restoration—especially where sash windows are concerned. “Many people are unaware that restoring sash windows to their former glory not only increases the resale value of the home, but it is also more cost efficient and longer lasting than most replacement windows,” said a Mill House Window Workshop specialist.
Working out of their large workshop in North Hertfordshire, Mill House Window Workshop has extensive restoration experience covering all types of buildings and window styles. Their craftsmen are also noted for repair and restoration of traditional internal and external doors, casement window services as well as supplying new casement windows that are made to order. “We regularly work with local conservation officers in all the areas we cover as our emphasis is on sympathetic restoration with appropriate materials that are in keeping with the appearance of the building,” said a Mill House Window Workshop specialist.
The Workshop’s full sash window repair, restoration and draughtproofing service produces sash windows that are structurally sound, work easily, and are free from draughts. Traditional materials such as lime mortars are used wherever possible as part of their preference to renovate or repair rather than replace. In addition to standard glass and hand-blown glass to match glass in pre-Victorian properties, they offer restoration glass that gives the effect of hand-blown cylinder glass. Wherever needed, they can provide solid brass catches to match the other originals within the property.
New Mill House Windows can be supplied in single or double glazed configuration with traditional weights and pulleys, and in a selection of high quality timber. All are made to order and to the client’s exact specification. “Whether it is restoration or replacement, our aim is to produce work which looks appropriate to the house’s original period while standing the test of time,” said the specialist.
