Restoring a 1700s country home

With origins to the mid 1700s, Mr & Mrs Whelan’s Cambridgeshire home was desperately in need of changes to make their living conditions more comfortable,

“some of the windows were believed to be the originals, with thin picture glass, all having had numerous repairs and the addition of secondary glazing, however it had come to the point where there was nothing further that could be done to maintain these”

they describe.

The owners wished to replicate the original cottage style design, as well as have the benefits of a modern window,

“heat retention is a key concern especially as I feel it is essential to do all you can to make your home more energy efficient, and we wanted the simple joy of windows that opened and weren’t painted shut.”

Professional Timber Windows showroom experience

“It was good to be able to visit a showroom, and to have a pressure-free overview of the available options. The quotes included a few options to consider; the information was all patiently provided, and the home visits were extremely helpful.”

Cottage casement windows were chosen in the shade of “Off-White” with 22mm true bars, 14mm ultra slim double glazing and authentic putty glazing.

Expert fitting service

“The fitting team were extremely good with a high level of attention to detail”.

“The putty glazed windows sit very well with the exterior of an old property, and it is a delight not to have the secondary glazing. The standard of the paint finish looks almost miraculous compared with what was there before; a huge improvement.”
