Traditional glazing in Salisbury, Wiltshire, Hampshire & Dorset

Traditional glazing is more than just a practical element, it’s an aesthetic choice. It imparts a sense of character and authenticity to your space that modern alternatives can’t replicate. For heritage properties, maintaining traditional glazing is not merely about aesthetics. It’s about honouring the historical significance of your building and preserving its story for generations to come.Traditional glazing reflects the craftsmanship of a bygone era. Each window represents a piece of artistry that deserves to be safeguarded.

Challenges of Traditional Glazing and Older Wooden Windows

Traditional glazing methods, often found in historic or heritage buildings, involve the use of wooden frames and single-pane glass. These windows can be delicate and require regular maintenance to prevent air and water leaks, as well as to preserve their aesthetic and historical value. Over time, the window putty that seals the glass in place can deteriorate due to exposure to the elements, temperature fluctuations, and natural ageing.

The Role of Window Putty

Window putty is a crucial component of traditional glazing. It serves two primary purposes:

  • Sealing: Window putty seals the gap between the glass and the wooden frame, preventing drafts, moisture, and pests from entering the building.
  • Aesthetics: It also provides a finished look, filling in gaps and irregularities and contributing to the overall appearance of the window.
