Renovating an old vicarage

Situated in the West Midlands countryside, the Old Vicarage is home to Mr & Mrs Horsford.

The couple had plans for works at the house,

“when planning permission was granted for the extension, we started our search for replacement windows that matched those currently fitted; at that time we weren’t going to change all windows, so a good match was critical”

Mrs Horsford explains.

“We searched many places and suppliers, and even large home exhibitions at the NEC, but they all lacked the authenticity and the aesthetics….glazing bars were too thick and clumsy, and most just didn’t have the right detail.”

Slim sash window finished in ‘Off-White’ with 18mm astragal glazing bars and manufactured in Engineered European Redwood.

Windows and doors that make a statement

An impressive set of French doors with accompanying casements now extends out from the kitchen and dining area, while a number of slim sash windows feature throughout the rest of the house.

“The company was recommended to us by a neighbour who was very happy with the windows they had had. We were so pleased after the first installation that we decided to have the remaining windows replaced across the rest of the property.”

French doors with toplights and sidelights finished in ‘Slate Grey’, manufactured in Engineered European Redwood with Samuel Heath Antique Brass Unlacquered ironmongery.

Improved security and heat retention

“The quality of the windows and doors is lovely…they were on the more expensive side but not the most expensive quote we had. We felt that Timber Windows’ products were a sympathetic fit for our Old Vicarage.”

“The house feels warmer, cosier and totally secure!”

“We felt Timber Windows was the best product we had seen by far, and a great match to our existing windows”

“They work like a dream….and anyone who has had old sash windows to contend with will know what I mean”
