Hi - just wondering if anyone had any advice on this.
We have a Victorian house in a conservation area (so need to keep the sash windows - would want to anyway). They are knackered. Loads of gaps.
We have had subsidence but the insurance doesn't cover the windows as they count as historic damage. Our insurance company is about to get the work done on the rest of the house and were thinking it would be a good time to have the windows done as well.
Could you recommend a good company to do the work? (SE London). Also any idea how much five windows would cost? Thanks in advance.
Our house is also Victorian in SE London. We used the Sash Window Workshop for about 5 windows over a 7-year period. The first time they came, they measured up all the windows we knew we wanted to have restored/replaced and we asked them to do the each one when we could afford it. They weren't cheap but really good consultants, customer service and craftsmanship and we've never regretted it.
I used to have a Victorian house and also used the sash window workshop, they made new sashes for us, and refurb end two that had been painted shut and had the cables removed. I was very happy with what they did.
