Pupils and staff at two Warrington primary schools are feeling the benefit of new thermally-efficient PVC-U windows supplied by Total Glass and installed by their long-standing customer Goldseal Tradeline Ltd.
Goldseal installed more than 270 A-rated white tilt-only windows at Oakwood Avenue Community Primary and Beamont Community Primary Schools during the Easter holidays to minimise disruption to the schools’ day-to-day operations.
The new windows featured Georgian bars integrated inside the doubled-glazed panels in keeping with the buildings’ Victorian origins. Providing improved security, natural light and ventilation, they replaced end-of-life single-glazed timber sliding sash versions.
Commenting on the projects, Goldseal Director Rick Fairclough said: “Both schemes progressed very well and the flexible delivery service to site by Total Glass ensured the windows were there on time when we needed them. We pulled our programmes forward to ensure we finished before the start of the new term.”
He added: “The new windows have greatly improved the appearance and thermal efficiency of the schools and feedback has been fantastic. Both schools have invited us to price further refurbishment work, including remaining windows and doors.”
Gary Cunningham, head of Oakwood Avenue Community Primary School, commented: “From start to finish Goldseal were extremely professional and we were delighted with the quality of the work done. We were continually informed about when the works would take place and how they were progressing. Disruption was kept to a minimum and because the works finished ahead of schedule school returned to normal in a matter of days.
“Rooms were handed back to school in a clean state and as the works were completed to a high standard, there was no need for contractors to return to address any issues. I would strongly recommend Goldseal to anyone thinking of renewing their windows.”
