We definitely wanted timber sash windows put back in; this is how the house was supposed to be! Everyone comments on the improvements to the appearance of the house.

Mr and Mrs Parker – Hertfordshire

In this Hertfordshire farmhouse, the original wooden sash windows dating to 1863 had stood the test of time for some 125 years until being replaced with plastic alternatives in the 1990s; these however lasted only a little over 20 years before they began to fail and the current owners, thankfully decided to return their home’s appearance to its former glory.

Returning the farmhouse to it’s former glory

“We definitely wanted timber sash windows put back in; this is how the house was supposed to be!” Mrs Parker exclaims.

“Having travelled around the country a lot in the past few years, we’d seen a lot of houses of all sizes and styles but one thing we noticed was common to all of them was how the windows could make or break their appearance.”

Superior quality and attention to detail at Timber Windows

The homeowners were convinced by what they saw at the showroom, “we compared quotes and product offering with another company but we liked what we saw from Timber Windows, particularly superior were the bars and the finer details.”

“We didn’t feel it appropriate to carry the full Georgian bars design through to the timber French doors so we were able to have a bar design manufactured that we had drawn up ourselves.”

Draught free and lighter rooms

Mrs Parker, and her visitors are suitably pleased with the outcome, “We’d never lived in a home that was draught free…until now! The windows have made the rooms much lighter and they have nice details such as the cords and weights which add a nice touch of character. Everyone comments on the improvements to the appearance of the house.”

“We have further plans for the house in the future, and will be back to Timber Windows when we carry out renovations and extensions on other parts of it.”
