Re: Re: Restoring sash windows
I note you have not compared prices nor have denied that restoration is not what Bolgers do anymore.
I had a good look at the website and note they talk a lot about conservation but isn’t conservation is where you keep the old ones in place not throw them out onto a skip or whatever.
Restoration is where you repair the damaged ones and get them back to a sparkling state, this is what I do and very well too:D
I’ve always thought that grants should be available for restoration not for ripping out perfectly good windows and replacing them with sashes that any joinery could make, Bolgers or otherwise.
I also note that you have not understood what I was talking about when I spoke about using plastic parting beads, What I meant was when it expands it splits the side of the frame.
Its getting harder and harder to make ends meet isn’t it….
