Repairs in Clevedon

Even where regular maintenance is undertaken, there are accidents.  Doors seem to take the most punishment.  This house in the Clevedon area of Glasgow was subject to damage.


Even though it is set back from the road and with a gate, the glass got broken in a few places.


This is a large entry way with a grand hall behind it.



The door of course had a new break and a few others needed attention at the same time.




In addition, the fanlight above the door was rattling, although there were no breaks.  This was re-0cemented in situ.



A view of the completed repair from the inside.

This house was built in the period 1870-1890.  When compared to the entrance at a house in Bearsden built in the period 1910-1915 
[Bearsden   ] you can see that exactly the same design was used.  This shows the large studios did recycle designs, even though in this case 20-40 years later.
