Low maintenance, secure double glazing
The existing windows and doors in the customer’s kitchen extension were timber. They weren’t rotten but were difficult to operate and were very draughty.
Our customer wanted reliable, low maintenance, secure double glazing which matched with the existing timber stained finish and so they chose the Rosewood colour uPVC externally and the Cedarwood uPVC internally.
We supplied and fitted an A-rated double glazed uPVC window together with a pair of French doors – all Liniar profile, Rosewood outside, Cedarwood inside and with 9mm oval rectangular leaded lights to match the existing layout.
Our customer’s existing windows were single glazed, leaded light steel frames set within white painted hardwood sub-frames. The steel windows were rusty in places, difficult to open, thermally very inefficient, and were not very secure.
We fitted blackout/white in, thermally broken powder coated aluminium window inserts within the existing timber sub-frames with leaded light effect, double glazing with a layout to match the remaining windows.
So the customer could benefit from the improved security and energy efficiency whilst still retaining the overall look of their period property.
This is an important consideration if you have an older property and wish to retain its character.
