Monkton House Window Restoration

Sustainable Window Restoration on 15th Century Castle

Andy and Anna bought A-listed Monkton House near Edinburgh after falling completely in love with it, and they’re only the seventh owners in more than five centuries. Their dream is to make the castle as eco-friendly as possible while keeping its unique character, focusing first on boilers, solar panels, greenhouses, and, of course, restoring the old sash and case windows. Eco Sash & Case has been chosen to carry out the window restoration.

Many are the original oak windows and no two windows are the same.  However, wherever possible, the sash and case windows are being reused and preserved, in keeping with Eco Sash & Case’s mission to offer a more sustainable, eco-friendly window repair and replacement service for historic properties.

“Because we run weddings and events, Eco Sash & Case work around our guests, in between bookings,” says Anna. “They mostly operate here but sometimes take the windows away to their workshop in Edinburgh to be rebuilt”.

“They’ve been very good at advising us. Eco Sash has restored the windows very carefully and did a lovely job of finishing and repainting them. The heat retention has improved and guests are finding the rooms noticeably more cosy!”

So, if you’re looking for a venue for a wedding, family or group holiday, or a special birthday party, check out Monkton House near Musselburgh!


Window Restoration by Eco Sash & Case

Old windows are usually made with high quality wood frames that are made to last. For this reason, it is much more sustainable and economical to repair and refurbish them, rather than replace them.  By keeping the original frames it also maintains the original character of a period property. Depending on your budget, the age of the glass and your requirements, we can often upgrade the glazing to double glazing which provides added warmth and soundproofing. Another option we offer is to add our draught proofing system
