Timber Casement Windows Restore Edwardian Style to This Family Home
The owners of this classic Edwardian home were in need of replacing their original, drafty single glazed windows. They knew they wanted to stay in their property for another 20+ years so were looking to upgrade to double glazed replacements, without losing the property’s elegant characteristics and style that they originally fell in love with.
After receiving a recommendation, the owners chose Westbury Windows & Joinery to supply new Accoya® casement windows throughout the house, additional legacy box sash windows for their fabulous side bays and a new entrance door at the back.
Each of the legacy box sash windows were designed, measured and installed onto the stone cills to retain original features. Painted in Westbury White, the windows sit perfectly, complementing the beautiful Edwardian red brickwork.
By design, all Westbury timber sash windows have a 68mm deep profile to improve the thermal performance through the wood components. Allowing them to incorporate a much thicker and wider choice of energy efficient glass and greater depth for moulding and glazing bars.
The new entrance door to the property’s boot room was designed to be in keeping with tradition and painted in Westbury Grey. Faced with Accoya®, this stable timber will not move and crack the paint.
By using a water-based, microporous paint system, these beautifully crafted timber windows and doors will stand the test of time. And the owners are happy with the knowledge that, if cleaned twice a year, these timber windows and doors will not need repainting for 10-12 years.
The owners can now enjoy their beautiful home for the long term. The new timber windows and doors look like they belong, retaining the property’s elegant heritage but with today’s high-performance materials and systems.
All Westbury joinery is bespoke and can be adapted to fit any style of house. We work hard to provide the right product and design to make a house feel like a home.

We feel as though Westbury has really helped improve our home and we’re very pleased.”Mr C
