Address: Reform Street SW11
Service: Overhauls with painting and sash replacement
Job value: £6,000 – £7,000
Reform Street is situated in the Clapham Junction area, near to Battersea Park. It is just off busy Latchmere Road before you reach Battersea Bridge. South of Reform Street is the popular Shaftesbury Park Estate Conservation Area which is based upon the English Victorian worker’s cottage.
The customer we carried the work out for, Ms. M, required a mixture of overhauls and sash replacements for five of her windows. Our carpentry team installed three new pairs of sashes and draught proofed two pairs of sashes. In addition to the draught proofing we also carried out painting work to those two windows, something which is not automatically included within the specification.
Initially Ms. M was mainly interested in our draught proofing service as a way of reducing heat loss through her windows without the expense associated of replacing them. However, once we explained the benefits of upgrading to timber double glazed sashes as part of our sash replacement service, she decided to use this service for her bedroom windows.
The joiners in our East Sussex workshop particularly enjoyed making the sashes for this job because they had a chance to utilise their skills for the complex six over six designs.
