Flush Casement Windows
Heritage property in need of renovating and new windows
Situated in a quiet village in Northamptonshire, this former farmhouse owned by Mr & Mrs Biggs has benefitted from new flush casement windows from Timber Windows.
“The house was originally built in 1709 and when we bought it, we decided to completely renovate it”
Mrs Biggs comments. She goes on to explain
“When we started stripping the house, we found an abundance of original features; fireplaces, timber beams, oak window cills etc. The house is full of beautiful, traditional English history”.
When describing the state of the windows that were in place at the time of purchase Mrs Biggs comments
“we believe the windows were last replaced in the 1970s and when we purchased the house, they were in a dire state. They had been repaired countless times throughout the years and it was quite clear that they were rotten and at the end of their life”.
Replacing windows in a conservation area
“The house is in a conservation area and the local authority informed us the new windows must be both timber and like-for-like”.
When seeking new window suppliers, Mrs Biggs looked online to research different companies and explains
“I found Timber Windows online and wanted to visit a local showroom. I like to see products in person to see the quality first hand.”
“The showroom was fantastic! There were photos of previous customer jobs which was very helpful and I could go through colour swatches to pick the perfect one for my home”.
Flush casement windows were specified for the farmhouse and all are finished in ‘French Grey’ with Antique Pewter Peardrop ironmongery, 27mm astragal glazing bars and are manufactured in Engineered European Redwood.
With an original stable door in place at the rear of the property, Timber Windows were able to help the owners match the new shade, for the door to be repainted, creating a consistent, traditional look throughout the property.
Efficient fitting process causing minimal disruption
“The fitting process was so efficient! They would completely finish one window before moving onto the next one so there was minimal disruption and they were so clean and tidy, you wouldn’t even know they had been in!”
comments Mrs Biggs.
The guarantees in place on the Timber Windows range was also crucial in the purchasing decision process.
“A long guarantee was a must for us. I want the windows to outlive me!”
Mr Biggs jokes.
“With the windows complete, this was our last big job for the house so now we can just enjoy our home and beautiful garden”
Mr Biggs concludes.
