If you live in Guildford and you’re considering restoring or replacing your windows, before you go ahead and get any work done it is always best advised that you first find out if you live in a Conservation Area. This is especially prevalent if you live in a home from the Georgian, Victorian or Edwardian periods.
Conservation Areas are areas that have been marked as having special architectural or historic interest. Keeping the properties in these areas as close to their original look as possible is of utmost importance. This includes keeping the original windows in place or where necessary, having replacements installed that are as close to the originals as possible.
