On a visit to our Showroom they soon realised that UPVC does not mean white windows. They were amazed at the choice on offer and began to appreciate that foiled profile might just be the solution they were looking for providing a period feel with the benefits of modern secure, energy efficient windows. White foil is soft and delicate with a convincing timber look. Not only did the profile fit their requirements but our tear drop handles and decorative stays would replicate their originals perfectly.
They also began to explore the different designs that could be achieved using dummy sashes to help achieve symmetry that was important to them. They began to get excited about what could be achieved.
This just left the lead design. With our bespoke glass design service we were also able to produce a template of their existing glass to be carefully reproduced in antique lead creating a sympathetic but practical solution.
They mentioned their idea of designing a new window in the eaves that would create a view of the garden and possibly a window seat to enjoy it from. This would require having building inspectors involved and a specialist roofer’s skills, all of which they assumed would not be a service we could offer. We were of course delighted to offer our services to design, take care of the planning and co-ordinate the project.
