Traditional Touches

Before deciding to replace the windows, French doors and front door throughout her house, Mrs Sako investigated the option of having them repaired.

“I was surprised to learn from the quotes I received, that the costs to carry out repairs wasn’t much different to having them completely replaced.”

“I also had concerns about how poor the condition of the frames was, meaning replacing or repairing just the moving parts may have not solved anything”
she explains.

Greater thermal efficiency and improved security

Sitting in a conservation area, the home, in the city of Oxford had experienced structural movement over time, resulting in the homeowner having difficulty opening the windows. New, replacement windows could be fitted to take this into account and ensure their smooth operation.

The benefit of a new, more efficient front door was also being able to return the set up to how it should have been; recessed into the archway rather than having an inner and outer door.

With greater thermal efficiency, smooth opening, improved security and enhanced protection from the noise of the busy street outside, Mrs Sako is satisfied that she made the right choice for her home.

The beautiful Westonbirt design door carries all the features of a door from a century ago, and in this particular setting, is enhanced further by the ornate plasterwork of the entry way. The Harewood Grey colour chosen stands out against the contrasting Off-White frame, which in turn matches the sash windows.

“The house has never looked better, it looks just the way it should.”
