Reply To: Irish say no to PVC windows
A few ‘protected structures’ near me recently replaced their windows with PVC. It is amazing how much it changes the look of the building. What I think looks nearly as bad as replacing sash windows with PVC is the replacement of original windows within our 20th C. buildings which were fitted out with either metal or wooden window frames. The ones I am mainly referring to are the 1940s and 1950s suburban houses which are being destroyed by PVC.
I am also pretty sure that I noticed the facsimile of Archers Garage has been fitted out with PVC. At least they are trying to keep it as historically accurate as possible by imitating what probably would have happened to the original had it survived!
