PRLog - Jan. 17, 2012 - Whether or not you would like to live in a period property, you’ll most likely agree that they do look like wonderful places to live. They often have enduring design features as well as being generously proportioned both inside and out. The fact that they have lasted so long is testament to both the style and the build quality.
However, we find ourselves living in an era where living in such a property is becoming increasingly expensive. Modern homes are built with energy efficiency in mind, despite the fact they often lack character, they have the advantage of the most up to date building materials and fixtures.
A window firm based in Hampshire, UK called Met Therm Windows has a solution which may help to modernise period properties in a cost effective way. They supply metal period windows that are A rated in terms of their thermal properties and are ultra slim which is often a sticking point in upgrading this type of window as they can fit in many types of window frame. Even modern build projects are buying their windows to get the period feel but with modern technology.
One type of window that is currently being replaced with these metal period windows frequently are crittall windows. These were very popular windows in the Art Deco period of the 1920’s and 1930’s.
