The original timber windows on this lovely family home in Oxford were past their best; they had warped, making them difficult to open, and were getting expensive to maintain. Several panes of glass had had to be replaced. The windows were drafty and, despite being double glazed, let in quite of bit of traffic noise from the main road some 200 yards away.
When choosing their new windows, our client spoke with neighbours to get their thoughts on whether a white or cream option would work for the window frames. The other houses in the street are a mixture of the original wooden windows and rosewood replacement windows. It was felt that a white or cream option may stand out a little too much. Our Designer produced Architectural Drawings (which can be seen in the gallery above) to help them visualise this. This, together with a trip to our Showroom, meant this couple could confidently make a decision when choosing their new windows and doors.
A natural wood finish was chosen for the exterior and a white wood finish on the interior, both in keeping with the aesthetics of the property, the street and the internal decor. The white inside helps to really brighten up the rooms.
French Doors were installed in the Den and Dining Room, giving easy access to the large garden.
Our client is delighted with their new windows and has recommended us to a neighbour. No more drafts and the sound proofing has been massively improved. They commented that there was very little disruption when the fitting team were in and no touch up was required to any paintwork.
A lovely project 🙂
