At Storm, we cover the entirety of the UK, including its offshore islands. Recently, we’ve been carrying out work on the Isle of Wight. This gem of an island located off the south coast of England, was highly fashionable during the Regency, Victorian and Edwardian era, not least because that was where Queen Victoria chose to spend much of her free time.
As a result, the island is home to lots of outstanding period properties, all of which have a range of requirements when it comes to energy efficiency.
Storm Windows has been visiting the island to carry out work, beginning with a couple of trips on the hovercraft as foot passengers. We took our surveying equipment to measure and template windows. When it came to installation we took two vans across on the ferry.
We carried out work for a residential customer with a holiday flat near Ryde whose previous owner had used our services. The new owner wanted glazing that would deliver improved thermal efficiency, lower energy bills and warmer property. They were also looking for extra protection from outside noise due to the property being on a busy street.
To achieve this we fitted lower vertical sliding sash units to the building’s beautiful original sash windows along with curved-in plan units to two bay windows.
Thanks to some clever planning we were able to survey and fit new windows on the same trip, minimising our carbon footprint and keeping our customers happy!
We thoroughly enjoyed our time on this unique island and hope we can play a further part in looking after its architectural heritage over the years ahead.
