    Dear Blogger,

    The Glasgow City Heritage Trust does currently only offer grants of up to 40%. New rounds of grant enquiries will be accepted from 1 April 2011 onwards.
    Our Building Repair Grants are not specific for windows, all external work to traditional building items such as slated roofs, masonry, timber doors and windows are in principle eligible. Please check our website for more details.

    Hi there

    Can anyone recommend a good builder they’ve used in the past for extensions/renovations? We are moving to a house in the Gardens soon and are planning on putting an extension on the back.

    Many thanks

    Hi there

    Can anyone recommend a good window cleaner? I’ve tried the one listed in the trades section but the mobile didn’t work and I couldn’t get an answer on the landline.

    Many thanks
    Katie

      Hi Katie, try 07890641431. Our window cleaner recently passed on his client book to another company. This is the number we have but we’re not sure if it’s the old window cleaner or the new one! He just turns up, does half the street and then knocks on the door. If you get no joy I’ll make a note of the number/name next time he calls.

    Thanks Laura, I called the number you gave me and the guy has actually broken his ankle! So if anyone else is looking for windows cleaned, he gave me his brother in law’s number which is 07545281385.

    does anyone know of a good value sash window restorer – that has worked on the flats at Kirkcaldy Road / Fotherignay Road?

    we’re having the whole house done, as well as windows – so would need to be good value.

    thanks

    Hi – just found this trades list. What a great resource!

    I am looking for a handyman, rather than specialised tradesman, to do some odd jobs around the house. Can anyone recommend someone?

    Thanks

    @Elaine Vallance
    You could try Jim Howie (Howie Building Services) on 07932 716078 or Tom McGill on 0797 175 8355. I’ve used Jim for building & electrical work (& lots more) and Tom for roofing, plastering, pebbledash. They both have reliable associates who fill in the gaps if they don’t have the skills. Worth getting quotes from more than one person, of course.
