Can I change my current window without affecting it structurally? I still want inward opening casement windows but I want one with only one key locking handle to lock to the mullion on each side, I want to remove the top fixed window so I have 2 long panes on each sides, windows that make no sound when opening (currently mine makes this bouncing sound as it has nothing to soften gravity's pull) and I want internal blinds with triple glazing, I live in a block of flats and not in a listed building or a conservation area but I want no reason for the council to say no.
Hi bob341, If you building is less than 30/40 years old it is unlikely that the windows would be a structural element - you replacement window company should be able to advise. The change to not having false fanlights should not present a problem with your local council. Having one central locking handle may not be possible with such tall, inward opening triple glazed windows - again talk to your window supplier. Regards S
