Mila Window and Door Maintenance regenerated 294 windows in a 16 storey block of flats in Hastings converting them from an ‘old-fashioned’ Pivot style window to a newer and easier to use Tilt and Turn style.
Social Housing repairs and maintenance specialist Mila Maintenance & Installation has pioneered a new ‘Refurbishment’ or ‘Regeneration’ solutions for windows installed into high rise housing to avoid the need to replace them.
The new offerings have been developed in consultation with clients who have problems with their windows in high rise housing stock and where the blocks have subsequently been rendered or over-clad making the cost of replacing the windows for a second time extremely expensive, environmentally unfriendly, and disruptive to residents.
With both solutions the key point is that the existing window frames remain in situ. Refurbishment of the existing windows, or regeneration, which involves remodeling the styles and operation of the windows are undertaken without the need for scaffolding externally or the need to disturb the render or cladding.
All works are carried out from the inside; windows are fully modernised and upgraded; windows have new guarantees issued on them, so extending the life of the client’s assets; residents have all the benefits of new windows without the disturbance in their homes of having them ripped out and re-installed; client’s benefit financially and environmentally.
