Renovating a charming, coastal property

On the south coast, the 1930s home of the Thorne family has received a much-needed upgrade,

“Many of the windows were rotting, and we therefore phased our approach to replacements based on priority and to spread the cost too.”

The homeowners had clear criteria when it came to their choices for replacement windows and doors,

“it was a definite ‘no’ to uPVC as this would ruin the house and always had to be timber.”

Polstead entrance door finished in ‘Anthracite’ with a bespoke leaded, stained glass design on ‘Kathedral’ patterned glass. The door also features 18mm astragal glazing bars and a Polished Chrome escutcheon and Blacksmith Traditional letterbox. Manufactured in Engineered Meranti Hardwood.

Traditional timber windows and door

Classically styled flush casements sit alongside a Polstead entrance door featuring leaded, stained glass.

“We’ve noticed a massive difference in the bedrooms; no more draughts or outside noise. The door is so much better too, as the old one used to let in a lot of cold draughts.”

“Overall, we can say we’re very happy!”
