Rebuilding a window into a cellar exterior wall - Restoration & Refurbishment job in Rochdale, Lancashire

2Rebuilding a window into a cellar exterior wall

Job Description

A previous cellar window had been bricked up years ago. The cellar gets a bit damp, and we would like to have the window rebuilt in, using a double glazed unit, to allow sunshine in and dry out the area better. The approx. sizing of the window opening would be 45" x 50" but as it is a 130 yr old victorian house, the walls are thick, and the external part is stone. The cellar ceiling would need to be supported at the window frame, and some exterior work needs doing to enable light and air in but not rainwater. Next door's house still has a window, so it is workable somehow. We are happy for work to start as soon as practical.
