Repair and reproduction of windows and doors

​​​​​​​​​​If you are repairing or replacing windows or doors (866kb PDF) in a listed building or in a conservation area it is likely that special planning policies and controls will apply, leading to a requirement for planning permission or listed building consent. 

We are often asked for names and addresses of window repairers, manufacturers or suppliers.

Although we cannot make any direct recommendations, below is a list of companies that may be able to undertake traditional window and door replacement and refurbishment works in Cardiff.

Please remember that in order to preserve historic fabric and character, repair (4.6mb PDF)​ is almost always preferable to replacement, with the additional benefit of not requiring planning permission. 

Where a building is listed, you should always check if listed building consent is required.

It is stressed that the list is not one of recommended suppliers: further trades persons, companies or suppliers can be found online. 

Ultimately, enquirers must satisfy themselves of the likely price and quality of materials and workmanship. It is also important to check that the appropriate drawings can be prepared by the company chosen.

If the works you have in mind require permission, pre-application discussions​ could save you time at the application stage. 

Specific examples might be:

  • planning permission, or
  • listed building consent. 

If you contact us through our form before applying, we may be able to give you an indication of whether you need one of these. ​
