During a full redevelopment of this stunning Cheshire villa the owners had concerns about the lack of thermal retention and basic comfort and use of the existing windows and doors.
With over 20 windows in total within the property, comprising from timber box sash windows, casement windows, plus a feature bowed curved window, the property was cold, draughty, and very un-efficient to heat, causing concern for the long-term use and comfort of the home.
After we had carried out a full appraisal of the issues with the property, a hybrid of replacement and restoration was suggested.
As part of a full restoration we designed new double-glazed casements using our unique Heritage Slim-Line double-glazed glass units, allowing us to recreate the detail of the windows and meet the customers’ expectations exactly. Our work also included the draught-proofing of the existing frames, and carefully fitting new locking ironmongery in a period style and finish to give maximum security without compromise to the look.
We were also commissioned to create a feature side window that recreated the architecture of the property whilst also blocking out the view of an adjacent property. Plus, a new set of double patio doors.
The new windows and doors were designed specifically to encapsulate the interior design themes and style running through the property, whilst being sympathetic to the properties heritage.
The side window was fabricated using traditional glazing techniques such as leaded soldered joints and washed stained glass to create a timeless feature piece.
