Lorimer Double Glazed Sliding Sash Windows

Mr and Mrs Alexander’s home falls into the former and when they bought their home in Dalkeith, saying it was a ‘fixer-upper’ would be an understatement.

There’s something so special about period houses. They’ve got so much character, so much charm, so much history… however, they also have so much maintenance, so many windows and so much to do to keep them feeling as charming as they look.

“We knew it was going to be a big renovation job,” said Mr Alexander, “but we could see the potential. We’ve done a huge number of renovations to the house, and the windows were a big part of the upgrade.” said Mr Alexander.

The couple were passionate about retaining the house’s original features, opting for Lorimer sliding sash windows to replace the old and crumbling sash and case timber windows. Now their home is lighter, brighter, cosier and toastier – without compromising on style – not to mention how much less time it takes to look after their new windows.

“It’s been a lot of work,” said Mrs Alexander, “and absolutely beyond a doubt that it was worth it.”

Dalkeith and Eskbank

Located on the River Esk to the south-east of Edinburgh, Dalkeith has grown dramatically in recent years to cope with demand and its growing status as a commuter town to Edinburgh. In recent years, a station has also been opened in Eskbank to service the reintroduction of the Borders railway line, which has reduced commuting time to the city centre.

Split into four areas all with different property styles, the centre of Dalkeith and Eskbank features many large Victorian houses as well as a number of new housing developments.
