Re: Re: Irish say no to PVC windows
Anyone know how much those windows have devalued the house?
I mean in real estate price terms rather than any personal perception. I know I’d now be unwilling to buy that house (if I had the money) and I guess many on this forum would also be effectively removed from the pool of potential buyers – but I’m also sure that we are not the market forces in this matter.
Does anyone work as a property surveyor and might know? I see so many advertised properties that have diametrically opposed features listed – “period features”, “double glazed”.
The most effective way of preserving these may be to build on peoples preference for “period charm” and with a little education the market could be steered away from this kind of practice. Surely the tendancy is towards people paying a premium for a non-vandalised house?
