Shown below are examples of some of the jobs we have recently worked on:
All Hallows Drumcondra
See below slideshow of restoration works to windows at Drumcondra House, All Hallows during March 2017. Drumcondra House was built in the early 18th century to a design by Edward Lovett Pearce. Most of its original windows have remained intact with many original panes of glass remaining – extreme caution was required during restoration works!
3 in a row in Clontarf…
In early 2015 we were asked to restore windows in No 89 Clontarf Road. We were then approached by neighbours on both sides to restore their windows also, making it 3 in a row – a first for us!
Terenure Road – Arched sash in bad repair but came up beautiful in the end…
After Restoration (in workshop and refitted in situ):
Drumcondra – Re-instatement of sash windows with added comfort
We replaced single-glazed aluminium windows with new double-glazed hardwood sashes (fully draught-proofed) in this house in Drumcondra – see before and after photos below:
Summer 2013, complete overhaul and restoration of 9 small sash windows in the ‘Gardener’s Cottage’ at St. Columba’s College, Whitechurch, Dublin. See below photo gallery of windows before restoration, work in progress and restored windows:
Early Victorian period house in Drumcondra
In 2011 we completed the restoration of 22 sash windows of various sizes and in various states of disrepair in a house at Drumcondra Road (a Protected Structure under the Dublin City Council Development Plan).
All windows needed to be retained and were in need of a complete overhaul. This included the replacement of broken panes of glass with antique glass, repair of rotten frames, stripping and repainting of windows and frames, repair of window boxes and shutters, full overhaul of cords, weights, wheels etc and draught-proofing of all windows.
