Replacement Sash Windows and Roof Lantern For Victorian Family Home
Nestled on the outskirts of an idyllic village in the heart of Buckinghamshire, this elegant Victorian property needed a bit of modernising. The original sash windows had a unique periodic design but were looking a little old and tired, giving the whole building a worn aesthetic.
For this project, we worked collaboratively with the client’s chosen installer. We regularly met with them on site during quotation surveys and consultation meetings and supplied the sashes lose from the frames for ease of installation.
We replaced the windows with 6 legacy spring balanced sash windows in a period style, incorporating a range of double, triple and single windows. Ensuring that the windows worked in harmony with the architectural heritage of the building, we perfectly matched them with the original designs, which had a rather unique style.
Our legacy glazing products are 4/8/4mm (16mm) krypton filled units, which are the thinnest designs we can use. These high-performing windows were perfect for this project, as their thin shape still maintains a traditional aesthetic while offering the insulation and security benefits of a modern glazed window. Painted in Westbury White, the joinery was treated with a three-coat, spray-applied, microporous paint system; ensuring a durable and high-quality finish for years to come.
In addition to the windows, we also supplied a striking entrance door featuring an insulating Tricoya™ panel with decorative moulding. Tricoya™ is made from Accoya™ which is a sustainable engineered softwood. A front entrance door should always complement the overall feel of the home, and the bright moss-green door with a solid brass knocker and letter plate gives a smart first impression. Creating a two-tone effect, the inside of the door was painted white to match the interiors. Finally, we designed an eye-catching glazed fanlight above the door, with circular timber glazing bars that give a unique look to the entrance.
