Restoration of old sash windows
Repairing rather than replacing is what good conservation practice is about, using compatable timber for splicing and repairs, keeping as much of the orginal fabric as possible. Cylender glass for glazing replacements as modern glass looks very different from old glass. Good draftproofing brings up their thermal performance in a visualy sympathetic way.
