VENTROLLA Carry Out Caring Restoration At Residential Home

Sash window renovation specialist Ventrolla has completed a window renovation project at a beautiful residential care home in Chard, Somerset.

Ventrolla Wessex minimised the disruption for residents at Chard Manor care home as a result of exceptional planning and organisation.

Marc Vickery of contractors Voyage Care instructed Ventrolla to renovate 13 sash windows after receiving a number of recommendations, including one from English Heritage.

Marc said: “Ventrolla carried out a risk assessment each morning and would keep all staff informed of the daily schedule. Many of the patients living in the home have learning difficulties, so it was important to avoid disruption. Every evening the patients could return to their rooms, which were left clean and tidy.”

The unique Ventrolla Perimeter Sealing System was applied to the gaps in the sash windows to allow for smoother movement, eradicate draughts and reduce rattles. This helps to reduce noise, making the manor warm and comfortable for the residents.

Mark added: “Ventrolla were very well organised and I was incredibly impressed with the work and the consideration towards the residents.”

In addition to the 13 windows that were restored to their former glory, seven window frames were renewed and six new sills made.

Ventrolla had to work closely with the local Conservation Officer to ensure that the restoration work on the Grade II listed building was in keeping with regulations.

The former farmhouse dates back to the late 1650s. In the middle of the 18th century the building was extended, a new facade added and the sashes were installed.

Chard Manor has up to 10 residents with learning and behavioural difficulties. The home offers varying degrees of assisted living. The aim is to provide a warm and cosy but empowering environment.

Ventrolla offers a bespoke renovation service for timber sliding sash and casement windows as well as timber doors. The company has its central office in Harrogate, North Yorkshire, with additional locations throughout the UK and Ireland.
