Period Properties

Do you own a Period Property? This is a term without a fixed definition and probably misused by some in the industry.

A period property can loosely be defined as any property built before the First World War.
In practice this is likely to be Edwardian (the period approximately from 1901 to 1914) or Victorian (1837-1901).
Properties built prior to that could be considered period but often more specific descriptions such as Georgian or Regency are used to show their elevated status above the Victorian and Edwardian buildings.

Around one third of properties in the UK were built before the First World War and most of these are Victorian.

Basically, the older the building the more likely it is to be listed, listed buildings mark and celebrate its special architectural and historic interests, bringing it under the consideration of the planning system ensuring it can be protected for future generations.

We here are Knowsley Art Glass take pride in being able to preserve these beautiful buildings, and offer the services to help keep these buildings looking stunning, wether it be Edwardian, Victorian, Georgian or Regency.
