Timber windows lend a distinctive character to a property. So, while there has been a trend in recent years to replace traditional wood windows with double glazed uPVC units, there is still a demand for either renovating existing timber windows or replacing fitted uPVC windows with timber.
If you are looking to have your existing timber windows repaired, then you should seek the services of an experienced carpenter with traditional woodworking skills. This is especially important if you are restoring a specific part of an existing timber window and its frame, in order to return it to its original state to match the rest of the building.
Renovation works may include adapting an old box sash, casement and non-opening window ready for double glazed window units to replace the existing single glazed panes. A window maker's knowledge of the different types of window glass is also very important because, on occasion, glass is specified which has an authentic period look, along with its characteristic imperfections. Obtaining and fitting these expensive, specialised types of glass is an essential skill if a window restorer is to work on historical properties.
HC Carpentry & Joinery specialise in sash window renovations, but also restore other types of windows in both historical and contemporary properties. We have the specialist skills to restore or, if necessary, replace curved, arched, octagonal or round windows using traditional techniques and materials.
Designing and constructing windows for property extensions and new builds requires the contractor to have expert knowledge of both traditional and modern window design. Architects are continually looking for ways to create designs that stand out from the ordinary and specially designed, shaped windows often feature in their brief.
Such windows may be circular or arched and, because they are unique in design and size, they cannot be purchased off the shelf. To produce such a window needs the skills of a craftsperson. However, if a manufactured window can be altered to meet the requirements of your project, H C Carpentry and Joinery can undertake such alterations.
