Agate Grey Windows – Evolution Timber Alternative, Thatcham

Location: Reading

This stunning family house located in the sought-after village of Bucklebury Alley in Thatcham has been transformed with agate grey windows.

The Thatcham homeowners contacted Thames Valley Windows to replace the original timber windows in their family home with a like-for-like replacement that offered high performance, energy-efficient and maintenance-free windows.

One of our designers contacted them to discuss their requirements and part of their design brief was that the replacement windows would retain the charm and character of their property.

After a visit to our Bracknell showroom to view the range of double glazed wooden and timber effect windows we have on display. The Thatcham homeowners were drawn towards the Evolution timber alternative uPVC windows and doors.

The traditional authentic timber-look joint and 45mm deep cill that replicates that of a timber window was the key feature and the reason they choose Evolution so to preserve the classic look of their Thatcham property.

The Evolution Flush windows and doors blend traditional 19th-century beauty with 21st modern technology offering greater longevity with low maintenance to both contemporary and traditional properties.

Their range of timber alternative windows and doors are the latest innovation in uPVC windows that delivers exceptional energy efficiency and thermal performance. A-rated flush sash window systems are virtually indistinguishable from traditional timber windows that can meet local authority regulations for use in conservation areas.

The handcrafted timber-look joint and innovative woodgrain effect finish offer a cost-effective alternative to traditional timber windows. They are the perfect choice for period properties or conservation projects to preserve the aesthetics, look, feel, and maintain the past’s architectural heritage.

As well as standard colours, Evolution offers over 200 RAL colour options to imitate the look of hand-painted wooden windows. A range of wood effect finish options, including woodgrains and textured foils, complement any brick, stone or mortar.

The end result is stunning. The sleek flush-fitting appearance on the exterior and the authentic wood detailing means that the Evolution Flush window retains the traditional look that the homeowners wanted and offers the added modern benefits of durability, security, and exceptional thermal insulation of a uPVC window.

We designed, surveyed and installed seventeen double glazed timber alternative windows and two sets of French doors, finished in dual colour. The homeowners chose Agate grey for the exterior and white for the interior.

They chose a contemporary Ventiss teardrop satin chrome handle offering a minimalist finish and touch of elegance to the timber alternative windows for the window furniture. Whilst the multipoint locking with shoot bolts offers enhanced security.

The subtle tones of the agate grey windows contrast beautifully with the timber cladding facias and pale brick colour providing it with a contemporary design finish. Whilst the white blends well with the neutral colour tones of the interior.

The modern slim sightlines allow for maximum amounts of natural light to flow into the Thatcham property.

However, the main feature in the living room is the two sets of French doors which create a stunning focal point to the rear of the property.

As part of an extensive home renovation project, Solarlux Wintergarden and recently a bespoke garden studio to the Reading property.
