Self Building a dream home

This self-build home was constructed in 2007 by the Coates family to meet their own specification and requirements; during this time however some compromises had to be made in order to complete the project, “at that time we couldn’t afford the windows that we wanted” and they opted to put uPVC mock-sash casement style windows in with a plastic door too.

“We always wanted wooden sash windows, and the style supplied by Timber Windows was better than any other we had seen”, and ultimately seven years on, the homeowners were able to correct the original installation with their ideal window type.

Choosing timber sash windows

Throughout the property, Hidden Spring Sash Windows were chosen with the internal finish being White, and Tent Grey for the external faces, with a single 18mm vertical astragal bar; finished with brushed metal catches, lifts and limit stops. Replacing the old front door is a matching Tent Grey Kingston design with antique black ironmongery and Arena patterned glass. In addition a Stable Door and two sets of French doors complete the replacements.

When asked what the main factor was in their decision to use Timber Windows, Mr & Mrs Coates cite quality as most important to them, “the approach from the sales staff and the professionalism of the whole team gave us the confidence that we were dealing with a company who would deliver a quality product and install it in a very professional manner.”

The team who fitted the windows were polite and very hard working professionals.

Obvious transformation

The transformation is obvious for all to see, and have brought a range of benefits, “the windows are not bulky, and do increase the feeling of space and light into the rooms. Aesthetically, there is simply no comparison to the windows they replaced.”

“We are very pleased with the finished product; the windows and doors, and especially the French doors have enhanced the house. The colour and design have also softened the house and blended it into the landscape.”

Mr & Mrs Coates’ delight continued through to the final phase of the process, “the job was completed on time and with no mess, we are very pleased. The team who fitted the windows were polite and very hard working professionals. We would definitely use Timber Windows again.”
