Replacing old, poor performing windows and doors in this Victorian property is a project currently being undertaken by Mrs McCaffery.

“The old sash windows would rattle when I opened the door and I was worried that if I opened them, I wouldn’t be able to close them again. I also had to use my hip to barge the old stable door open!”

Mrs McCaffery explains.

When deciding on replacing the windows, Mrs McCaffery goes on to comment

“At first, I felt a little guilty taking out the original windows but then thought to myself, given the opportunity, what would a Victorian prefer? And with that in mind, I had made my decision”.

Flush casement windows providing superior performance and appearance

Flush casement windows have been installed on the first floor of the property including two bay windows and all have a dual colour finish, with ‘French Grey’ applied externally and ‘Off-White’ internally. These feature Black Monkeytail ironmongery and 18mm astragal glazing bars throughout.

Both the entrance door and stable door at the rear of the property also have the same dual colour finish and feature Black Cottage handles.

Delighted with the appearance, the existing ground floor windows have now been painted to match the ‘French Grey’ finish of the first-floor windows.

“As soon as the first window went in, I was delighted so I decided to match this colour with the windows on the ground floor”.

“I always thought to myself, what difference can windows really make? But I’m astonished! At each stage of the installation, the house became quieter”

Mrs McCaffery explains.

Returning to Timber Windows and recommending to friends

With the first floor of the house now complete featuring products from Timber Windows, Mrs McCaffery tells us of her plans for the rest of the house.

“The kitchen extension had been done before I was aware of Timber Windows but I will be changing these now as the Timber Windows products are far superior”.

“The windows are gorgeous and I love them. I will be back to the replace the other windows I didn’t do first time around”.

“I get so many lovely comments from visitors and neighbours, I feel almost like an ambassador for Timber Windows now!”

Mrs McCaffery says with a smile.
