Windows Repair and Double Glazing installation in Godmanchester
In June 2020 we did a small windows repair and double glazing project in Godmanchester, Cambridgeshire.
Their property is a semi-detached, badly dilapidated timber clad house located in a conservation area in Godmanchester. It was recently purchased and our clients wanted to turn this run down property into their home. They were determined to keep as many original features as possible. Despite the wooden window frames being rotten to a point where one of the windows needed a support to not fall out, our clients wanted to see if they could still be saved. They also wanted to have double glazing installed.

Accoya is the world’s leading high technology wood. Created from sustainably sourced softwood; it matches or exceeds the durability, stability and beauty of the very best tropical hardwoods. All the materials we use were selected for their top of the range quality – unique wood protection properties, drying time, consistency, colour retention, ability to move with wood without cracking and peeling. Combined with our unique window renovation techniques and craftsmanship, this makes our sash window renovation service the best on the market. Topped with a 10-year guarantee for paintwork and a 20-year guarantee for the window repairs, we created our services to be an obvious choice for our clients.
We regularly work and repair badly rotten wooden windows, so this project was not much of a challenge. All the windows and frames were carefully repaired with Accoya and Tricoya timbers, retaining their original look and dimensions.
These windows had narrow rebates and would not be suitable for standard double glazing, so we used Pilkington Spacia slim double glazing. It was a perfect choice for a historic building and had better thermal properties than standard double glazing.
The windows were spray painted and now look the way they were originally made – with neat, clean lines, but now they are protected for decades and will not need repainting for the next 10-12 years and will keep our clients’ house warm and comfortable.
Having used Alex to paint the inside of our house, we have invited him back to paint the exterior. The team are total work horses. Punctual, efficient and their work is excellent. Can’t recommend highly enough
We have used Matt and his team on a number of occasions.
The standard of work is excellent and offers value for money.
He has a superb eye for detail and does not settle for second best.
I would have no hesitation in recommending him.
Don't use gloss use Matt!
Excellent communication, service and professionalism. We spoke with Chameleon to restore some rotting wood french doors and wooden windows, as well as redecorate. Email discussions with Victoria to arrange the initial quote were answered quickly and in a friendly way. Alex and his team of decorators were excellent - they took 2 and a half days instead of 5, and worked extremely hard, leaving the windows and doors looking great. We'd use them again without hesitation and would thoroughly recommend them.
Alex and his team are superb. We have used them before, and always been impressed - as we were this time - by their work ethic, their expertise and knowledge, the quality of their work, and their efficiency. I recommend them very highly indeed.
