Authenticity and energy-efficiency are crucial to the process of installing replacement conservation area windows. With many conservation areas existing across the United Kingdom, we feel it is our duty to offer reliable window replacements to the conservation areas across Croydon, Coulsdon, Banstead, Cheam, Reigate and Surrey.
Tradition is part of our heritage, and this coincides with the process of conservation area window replacement. Although we adore tradition, we know that windows require regular maintenance and after some years require improvement. By working with our window technicians, you’ll be able to find a window solution for your period property.
What is a Conservation Area?
Conservation areas were introduced across the UK to recognise the country’s architectural history. Architectural design is part of our legacy and we want to be recognised for that. There are thousands of buildings and homes that were constructed before the 16th century across the country, and it is up to us to ensure these buildings are protected.
For many local authorities, preserving the traditional aesthetics of these areas is pivotal, and ensuring that they are maintained to promote our proud history is paramount. Many conservation areas can represent historical events, making them historic time capsules.
Many people are still unaware that they in fact live in a conservation area, so it is certainly worth finding out through your local council whether your property is part of a conservation area.
Can you replace my windows?
At Peaceful Home, it is our aim to provide an efficient service to every client. If you’re building is located in a conservation area, then we will strive to ensure that we have the permissions required to install new windows; whilst respecting the architecture. We’ll endeavour to cater to your taste as well as respect the community with any newly installed UPVC or Timber windows.
For any historical property, we always work closely with an architect to ensure that the window of our choosing is suitable. We want to ensure that your property still holds the relevant history and that you are happy with the end-product.
One major note about conservation areas is that the landscape and properties are usually protected under an Article 4 Direction, which means that any alteration without consent is frowned upon. You may require planning permission from the local authority, which we would be more than happy to assist with.
Why you should replace or repair your conservation area windows
Windows over time age and ensuring they’re energy-efficient is vital. Traditional single-glazed windows can be draughty, therefore letting warmth from your property out and allowing cold temperatures in. This is why our replacement UPVC windows and Timber windows are the solution to preventing this. With a full range of products designed for homes in conservation areas, you can be confident in our experience to upgrade your home respectfully.
Respect for Character and History
We respect every window project we undertake, especially for properties situated in a conservation area. Windows are one of the most important features of a building and we will do all we can to ensure your windows are secure and expertly installed.
Our simple and practical UPVC windows and elegant Timber windows are both traditional and stylish in design. You can guarantee quality with our window installation services in conservation areas.
