Keeping metal window frames in a good condition is crucial in maintaining the aesthetic appeal and character of a building. While metal and leaded windows are durable and last for a long time, they can develop warping and rust without proper care and attention.
At Sherriff Stained Glass Specialists we specialise in metal window restoration and leaded window restoration. There are several benefits to metal window repair and restoration. Read on to discover some of the advantages of restoring old metal casement windows.
Metal windows often are a key part of the façade of an old or listed building. Therefore, it is important to preserve this component of the building using metal window refurbishment. Metal windows that have fallen into disrepair will spoil the aesthetic of the building.
It is not uncommon for leaded windows and original metal window frames to develop rust and even become discoloured over time. Metal window restoration will restore these traditional windows to their original architectural beauty and ensure that they stay true to the original design for many years.
While it is important that a building’s windows are aesthetically pleasing, it is also crucial that they maintain their structural integrity. Without proper metal window repair, aging metal frames will warp and the window seals will deteriorate. This will compromise the safety of a building as the window frame and glass is more easily broken. Metal window refurbishment and lead glass repair gives peace of mind that the windows will once again provide increased privacy and protection.
Improved functionality and maintenance
One of the biggest advantages of leaded window restoration and lead glass repair is the improved functionality and ease of maintenance. Perhaps the biggest difficulty with ageing metal frames is that they no longer open and close as easily as they once did. Handles and hinges and any other moving parts are more easily affected by rust. Once the metal has deteriorated it can be difficult to operate and maintain. Therefore, it is important to protect your metal windows by hiring a specialist to perform a metal window repair.
Value for money
A key advantage of metal window restoration is that it saves money in the long term. Effective metal window repair provides better insulation and therefore reduces heating costs. A modern weather seal will greatly improve the metal frames resistance to rain and wind. With less of a draught in the building, it will reduce energy bills and make the interior much warmer all year round.
Performing a metal window refurbishment is also significantly cheaper than having the metal frames removed and replaced with new ones. Keeping your window frames in good working order will save you the expense of fitting new frames throughout the building.
