Entrance Doors & Sash Windows
Restoring a beautiful townhouse
Considering this four storey 1830’s Bristol townhouse sits in a conservation area, it is perhaps surprising that until recently it was decked out with a selection of poorly suited uPVC and aluminium windows;
“I’m not sure how that was ever allowed”,
homeowner Mrs Ward says.
Having owned the property since 2013, the owners have been working tirelessly to renovate the house, including replacing all the windows and doors across three phases, beginning in 2016.
Traditional replacement timber sash windows
Sash windows, including those with swept heads, finished in a classic ‘White’, were installed throughout, along with a striking new front door and basement door, both in a colour complementary to Fired Earth ‘Nordic Light’ with ‘White’ frames.
“We chose different options to suit different parts of the house, varying specifications and ironmongery finishes.”
Making a grand entrance
Owing to its proportions, the main entrance door gives a real sense of grandeur, with the design elements carefully considered,
“Phil from the Clifton showroom was excellent in his design advice to ensure they were in keeping with the property; correcting previous design mistakes.”
“We’ve been very happy throughout – the windows installed four years ago, still look just as good as those installed this year.”
“The team were very flexible and patient throughout, giving us time and advice to aid our decisions – there was no pushy sales tactics.”
“Noise reduction has been a massive improvement.”
“The windows are lovely, we’ve been very happy!”
