A conservative conservation installation from Picton

Glazerite UK Group customer, Liverpool based Picton Glass and Joinery, completed an impressive renovation project recently in one of the city’s key conservation areas.

A total of 48 windows were installed on the Parkfield Road building, which is home to nine apartments in the Sefton Park area. The project took around three months to complete.

Frank Hare, owner of Picton, was approached by a long-standing customer to supply and install the windows and together, they worked with the city’s conversation department to satisfy specific planning requirements, which included providing sample windows and technical information for prior approval.

Frank said: “The installation included a selection of products to the front of the property, including Residence 9 flush casements and Veka vertical sliding windows, with Veka FS70 casements to the sides and rear of the building. The original timber architraves were retained inside to keep the authentic period appearance, and all were finished in a white foil. The property owner is really pleased with the finished results.”

Glazerite’s group director, Jason Thompson, said: “Looking around at the surrounding properties that still retain original windows it is very in keeping with the heritage style, but with greatly improved security and thermal efficiencies, and Frank’s customer will have much less upkeep over the years to come.”

Picton Glass was set up by Frank in 1969 and the family-owned firm has been buying from Glazerite for five years. Frank added: “We believe that Veka is one of the best profiles out there and as a small company that largely goes off recommendation, we believe in only using the best products to retain our quality reputation. Glazerite not only offers a fantastic product, but also a great support package, which we have made use of with marketing support such as flyers and brochures for local promotions.”
