Originally built using bricks forged only a couple of fields away, this grand 1930s house in the West Midlands has seen a transformation by Timber Windows.

Mrs Walters has lived here since 1987 and comments

“originally the house had Crittall windows. We then switched to uPVC and have now decided to replace these with timber”.

Flush casement windows finished in ‘Porcelain’ with 18mm astragal glazing bars and manufactured in Engineered European Redwood.

Local showroom staff providing expert advice

Mrs Walters came across Timber Windows through a friend who had also chosen our products for their home a few years ago.

“They are very happy with their windows and doors, and recommended Timber Windows to me”.

Mark from the Timber Windows of Harborne showroom was on hand to help Mrs Walters with every stage of the project. In fact, a new bay window at the front of the property has been constructed based on Mark’s suggestion to balance out the front façade with the stepped front to the left.

Mark also made a number of other suggestions leading to a set of patio doors being replaced with French doors, and a brand-new door added to the decking area which has its own unique beach style.

Achieving a timeless look

Overall, a selection of flush casement windows, French Doors and an entrance door were chosen for the property.

“We saw ideas for colours in the brochure and opted for ‘Porcelain’ as it’s a timeless choice”.

These new windows and doors have transformed the property, a change which has not gone unnoticed in the local community!

“Some of our neighbours see the house from across the fields and have been telling us how wonderful it looks now”

Mrs Walters explains. She then goes on to comment

“passers-by and neighbours have been asking where the windows came from. They are now using Timber Windows as well! It’s also reassuring to have the nice comments from others as it gives further support to our decision”.

French doors and sidelights, and accompanying flush casement windows, all in ‘White’ with 18mm astragal glazing bars in a T-bar design and manufactured in Engineered European Redwood.

New windows creating a warmer, quieter living space

The new windows and doors have provided more than just aesthetic benefits.

“We are near Birmingham airport as well as the motorway and railway. The house is much quieter now and warmer. It’s made a world of difference!”.

With this being a ­large-scale project, the team were able to help with imaging to show how the proposed changes would look. The work was also carried out in two phases to help spread the financial outlay.
