Replacing doors and windows in listed buildings
October 24, 2023 | Blog
Replacing the windows and doors in a listed building is often a common area of controversy and strict control. Windows and doors are a major part of a building’s facade and character and so therefore it is a crucial aspect of any restoration project.
Buildings are ‘listed’ because they are considered to be of special architectural or historic interest and as a result require special protection. Undertaking a restoration project on an old piece of architecture undoubtedly presents many challenges as the buildings must be restored and maintained to exact standards. We work with conservation officers to ensure the aesthetics of these types of houses are retained.
Our new Heritage Range aims to help simplify the process of replacing windows in ‘listed’ buildings by offering a selection of products specifically designed for buildings where conservation approval is required.
The range includes single glazing, slimline glass options, reduced sections on sliding sash and deeper bottom rails, making it ideal for projects that require particular attention to detail. The range also includes ten timeless entrance door designs that are perfect for recreating period aesthetics.
The technical information on our Heritage Range is now available to download from the Bereco Resource Centre and we are continuing to work with our customers to ensure that our windows and doors are a perfect fit when it comes to restoration and conservation work.
If you are working on a project that requires particular attention to detail then why not give us a call on 01709 838188 to discuss the project and we can recommend the best options from our Heritage Range for you.
