The Sash Window Workshop, the leading specialists in the sympathetic replacement, restoration and repair of traditional timber sash windows and casement windows and doors, have created an infographic guide to listed buildings within the UK.

The visually stunning infographic will give owners and would-be buyers of listed buildings an easy-­to-digest overview of key listed building facts and regulations, plus where to go to look for funding.

With a total of 374,081 listed buildings in England, fans of period property are more than likely to stumble across a listed building in their search for the perfect home, and many may need advice and guidance on the rules surrounding listed building renovation, and the alterations that may require listed building consent.

Recent research has revealed that the last five years has seen one in ten homeowners in the UK break planning or building restrictions, the need for homeowners to carry out thorough research on the property they are planning to buy, and the works they are planning to carry out, has never been more important.

Further figures have shown that over the same period more than 176,000 homeowners have been ordered by local authorities to take down or correct changes to properties that weren’t carried out within planning guidelines.

For would-be buyers of listed buildings owning a home of special architectural and historic interest, that may date back to as early as the 15th century, comes with the responsibility to maintain the building’s character for future generations, and this may require homeowners to base their redesign on the needs of the listed building, as opposed to their style preferences in some cases.

The Sash Window Workshop’s infographic guide to Listed Buildings in the UK outlines some of these requirements, such as the need to preserve or re-use original materials where possible, giving those who are interested in owning a listed building an insight into some of the renovation challenges they are likely to face.

The Sash Window Workshop can help with many aspects of your listed building renovation including sash window restoration and casement window repair. They also offer timber secondary double glazing which can often be installed in listed period properties without the need to obtain planning permission.
