Replacing aluminium with engineered timber

Originally built in the 1830s, this grand, late Georgian property on the outskirts of Birmingham has returned to its roots thanks to Mrs Jacobs and Timber Windows.

“Roughly 10 years before I bought the house and moved in, it was owned by a builder who carried out a renovation. He decided, for expedience to install large pane aluminium windows across the house which were quite frankly, terrible!”

With a number of the windows on the property rotting, Mrs Jacobs was desperate to replace them as soon as she could.

“It was always my intention to have traditional and more appropriate sash windows installed but I needed to wait until I was in the right position to do so.”

Timber windows and doors that present an authentic Georgian appearance

Mrs Jacobs came to Timber Windows and specified slim sash windows along with a set of French doors and an arched casement window. All have been finished in White, with 18mm astragal glazing bars.

The new windows and doors lend the home a more authentic appearance, respecting its history and Mrs Jacobs is delighted with the end result.

“It’s absolutely wonderful! It’s like having a birthday everyday when I see my house now!”
