Bespoke Listed Windows & Conservation Windows
Restoration and replacement work on timber windows and doors on listed buildings and conservation properties can be difficult to get planning permission for, due to the architecturally sensitive nature of carrying out work on period windows and doors.
But at Timbawood, we have been able to fulfil the strict planning criteria for heritage windows and doors on listed buildings in over 30 unique planning authorities across London and the Home Counties, including Islington, Westminster and Richmond – due to our comprehensive range of specialist services. We have also carried out specialist restoration work on properties in Conservation Areas under Article 4 in many more authorities, including Wandsworth, Lambeth, and Kensington & Chelsea*.
The specialist services we offer for listed and conservation properties is unique to each project, and includes exact-match replacement and part replacement of sash windows, casement windows and a wide range of doors.
From our workshop in West London, we are able to offer bespoke glazing options including slimline double glazing and restoration glass – which has the slightly uneven look of the original period glass – the finest timbers, and traditional techniques including hand-puttying and hand painting for a truly authentic finish.
Our service also includes helping our clients put together listed building planning applications by supplying full detailed CAD designs for council approval.
Have a look at our case study of the restoration and replacement work we carried out on the sash windows and French doors on a unique Grade II Listed building in West London (above), for an example of the craftsmanship and process involved.
In 26 of the planning authorities, we have installed our elegant Timbalite slimline double glazing, which looks just like single glazing, on listed buildings to maximise the thermal and acoustic performance of the windows and doors without compromising the design and heritage of these unique buildings*.
We have used slimline double glazing on over 350 projects in total.
