Re: Re: Irish say no to PVC windows
Just a question – are there PVC sash windows? Maybe I’m just being paranoid, but some of the new sash windows that have gone into houses here in Limerick (e.g. on O’Connell Ave./Ballinacurra Rd.) seem to have quite thick frames and glossy finish. They are *miles* better than adjoining ordinary PVC windows, but they aren’t quite as good as remaining old sashes or even some other new ones.
Do some of the new sash windows just have very glossy paint or even a plastic coating on the timber? And a more basic construction?
There are also houses with rectangular frames where the top of the window opening is arched – would the originals have been like this in some cases? There are other instances in different terraces where the original frames are arched at the top like the window openings, but maybe they weren’t all like that?
In any case, nice to see new sash windows going in, even in the current climate.
