Traditional windows were required for this beautiful farmhouse in the Kent countryside.

Traditional windows are a must when you live in a 300 year old farmhouse property. Choosing the right windows was a crucial decision for these customers of ours.

Having lived in the property for nearly 25 years at the time, these homeowners were tired of having to repaint their windows every few years. We had just the solution for them: our hardwood timber windows.

Maintaining the look and feel of the existing traditional windows was key. Firstly, they certainly did not want to compromise on the beauty and heritage feel of their home. Secondly, the property is in a conservation area of natural beauty and only timber windows would be permitted.

After a meeting at the property to run through the product, a further meeting at the showroom was arranged to finalise all the finer details.

They opted to keep the colour exactly the same as their previous traditional windows with white woodgrain both sides. They went for black monkey tail handles along with black functional butt hinges on the top hung windows. They chose double glazing to the rear of the property and triple glazing at the front to reduce the noise from the fairly busy road.

We also were required to build a conservatory on the property. The conservatory had to look traditional with decorative cresting and finials along with georgian bar in the top lights. We designed with them a simple yet elegant gable end conservatory, which they would use as their dining room. As standard the roof would have our active self-cleaning blue glazing and standard energy-efficient double glazing in the windows and doors of the conservatory.

After surveying and ordering everything, our installers arrived in around 4 weeks and installed all of the windows in around a week and took a further week to install the fairly large conservatory.

We’re particularly happy with this job as the customers were so happy with us and have gone on to recommend many new customers for us!
