Brochure convinces planners that Masterframe sashes fit in conservation area

Tuesday, April 09th , 2013

York Vale Conservatories used 10 Masterframe Windows vertical sliders in a £30,000 new conservatory to match timber sashes in an Edwardian-style property in Newton-on-Ouse, a conservation area. It took two to three months to finally get planning permission but Jim Casey, Managing Director of York Vale, was determined. “I invited the planners to the showroom so they could see for themselves the high quality and authentic details of Masterframe’s Classic Range. But the Masterframe brochure I sent was enough to convince them that the windows would look good in a conservation area. You really can’t tell the difference between the original timber windows in the house and those on the new white conservatory. Now we have had approval from the council, other planning issues should be a lot quicker.”

“This was a big achievement for York Vale. It’s the first job we’ve done using Masterframe, but its one we are proud of and a good advert for future works. Having Masterframe as an option sets us at the higher end of the window market.”
