Having lived in this former farmhouse in the West Midlands for 20 years, Mr and Mrs Hughes decided that it was finally time for their windows to be replaced.

“The original windows were at least 50 years old! They were in a dire state and many wouldn’t even open.”

Finding the right windows for the home

With a desire for new windows that were both appropriate for the style of the farmhouse and also high performing, Mr & Mrs Hughes spent time looking for the right supplier and discovered Timber Windows.

“We knew that wooden windows were our best option. It wouldn’t feel or look right for any other material to be installed as it just wouldn’t be appropriate for the period and style of this house”

explains Mr Hughes.

New, authentically styled slim sash windows and flush casement windows in Engineered European Redwood have been installed throughout the property. All have a ‘White’ finish, with Brass ironmongery and 18mm astragal glazing bars resulting in a traditional appearance.

Bespoke glass design on new entrance door

Alongside the new windows, a Westonbirt conservation door with a toplight was also specified. This is finished in the shade of ‘Talisman’, features Polished Brass ironmongery from Samuel Heath and has original, uniquely designed signature glass that gives the door a stunning, individual appearance.

The new windows and door have made an immediate noticeable difference. Mr Hughes comments

“we live on a busy road with a lot of passing traffic. Since the new windows have been added, we haven’t heard anything from outside.”

As well as the reduced noise benefits, Mr Hughes also comments

“everything was installed just before Christmas and the house has felt noticeably warmer over this past winter compared with previous years. We are delighted!”
