TOPIC: Replacing or refurbishing windows in an Edwardian house

Replacing or refurbishing windows in an Edwardian house 11 Jul 2018 18:11 #3963

One of the glories of Palmers Green are its streets of Edwardian houses, and one of the principal glories of those houses is its Edwardian woodwork, used in doors, windows and other features.  But what to do if you live in an Edwardian house but the windows need replacing or refurbishing either because they're in poor condition or because you want to keep warmth in and drafts and road noise out?

Replacement windows on the Lakes Estate

The Friends of the Lakes Estate Conservation Area have recently issued a guide with advice on these issues.  Though it's intended primarily for people living in the conservation area, who have particular legal obligations, there are many more owners of Edwardian houses in Palmers Green who are keen to maintain original features but need advice on what to do and where to go.

The new guide is available on the Friends of the Lakes Estate pages of this website, alongside an earlier publication with advice on improving and renovating front gardens.

Ayrton Bespoke located in Crouch End have done numerous properties in the Lakes with new wooden frame box-sash windows completely indiscernible from originals despite being techically double glazed - you can't tell other than under microscope or by the freshness of the woodwork.

Always pass the Enfield planners as the designs are like for like and I'm aware of a few that have been done without such rigmarole and have never been challenged as they're so perfect.

As long as they're wooden frame box sash and same styling/design, there should be no impediment for such positive investments and upgrades.

Agreed. I have Ayrton windows and they are a perfect replica of the originals. Happy to show anyone on the Estate looking for replacements.
