Renovating a country cottage

Having now retired, Mr & Mrs Viner decided to carry out a range of improvements to the Berkshire cottage they’ve called home since the 1990s.

With some parts of the cottage dating to the 1700s, the couple describe the issues previously experienced,

“the old windows were in very poor condition, and required a lot of upkeep – the cost of repairing and repainting was no longer the most economical option, and they weren’t helping on the heat retention front either.”

Flush casement windows featuring 27mm astragal glazing bars, finished in ‘Smoke Cream’, manufactured in Engineered European Redwood.

New, elegant timber flush casement windows

Elegant flush casement windows in a ‘Smoke Cream’ finish with 27mm horizontal astragal bars were selected to retain the correct appearance.

“We’re very pleased that the new windows are so traditional looking, and in keeping with the house.”

In summary, Mr & Mrs Viner comment on the overall improvement,

“we’ve noticed a massive difference in how much better the house feels in all weathers, and we’ve found that our energy use has dropped as a result too.”

“It’s a simple pleasure to be able to open windows without them getting stuck”

“We were never put under any pressure at the showroom, and were given time to make decisions.”
