Things to Consider When Choosing Windows for Your Period Property
At Input Joinery, we understand traditional windows are an essential feature in building character in a period property. However, replacing windows in an older property is not as straightforward as replacing windows in a modern home. So here are our top things to consider when choosing windows for a period property.
1. Harness its character with timber windows
If you own a period property, you should definitely consider timber windows. You should think twice before installing plastic windows, as a newer material they can often look out of place on a period home and even ruin the aesthetic. There is a misconception that timber windows are high maintenance, however wooden windows are very durable and require little upkeep. Timber is naturally a great insulator and our bespoke timber windows include weather stripping, draught excluders and 24mm Argon filled double glazing as standard.
2. Embellish the history of the building
If your home is a listed property or in a conservation area, then you may be restricted to which windows you can choose so make sure you check with your local area whether any restrictions apply. Our traditional sash windows featuring weights and lines really help to accentuate the charm of a period property, as well as providing high-performance design that is made to last.
3. Find your own style
Almost all properties built within the Georgian and Victorian period feature sliding sash windows. This trend continued into the Edwardian era, where we also saw a surge in the popularity of traditional casement windows - a style still proving popular to this day. Traditional casement windows are great for creating a rustic cottage feel for your period property.
Every property is unique with its own personality and flair. Our wooden windows are crafted to compliment your property’s style, with a wide range of glass and paint finishes to choose from.
