Period Lead Windows
The Midlands or elsewhere, period lead windows are a classic glazing option that really add a touch a class and timeless elegance to a property. Period lead windows refer to an older window style that came into use from the end of the Middle Ages as glass began to be used for windows. At the time glass was very expensive and hard to work with, and it was nearly impossible to produce large panes of glass. Instead of a single large pane of glass, windows would be made of smaller pieces of glass that were joined together with thin bars of lead. Period lead windows became a classic design and examples of period lead windows can still be found on older properties. Modern plate glass windows are beautiful, but they can look out of place on an older property, whereas the period lead windows The Midlands homeowners can access are perfect when added to an older property to really complete a traditional style.
