We recently installed flush casement uPVC windows, from the Halo Flush range into a detached house in Wokingham, a historic market town in Berkshire.
Our clients were completing some renovations and general updates to their family home and had been looking at replacement windows and doors for some time. Thames Valley Windows was recommended to them for double glazing.
After a visit our Bracknell showroom, they were very impressed with our uPVC window range, and our design service. We worked with the client to supply and install a complete glazing solution for a small extension and an update to windows and doors throughout the property.
A mixture of high-quality uPVC double window designs to suit each room was chosen for the windows throughout the house in a mix of mechanically jointed and fully welded joints.
To the back of the house, our clients chose Halo flush casement uPVC windows for the landing, bathroom, kitchen, and bedroom.
For the small extension to their family room, they chose a uPVC roof lantern from Ultraframe to replace the old polycarbonate roof and uPVC casement windows and French doors from Halo.
To the front of the house, the original single glazed timber sliding sash windows were losing heat and not keeping warmth in each room. They wanted to maintain the existing aesthetic of this Wokingham property, so they chose energy efficiency sash windows from the Genesis range. A superb authentic-looking uPVC alternative flush sash window featuring sash horns.
Soon after our client confirmed their order, a survey was arranged with our client to finalise all the measurements and finer details. Shortly after the orders were placed with the manufacturers the date for the installation, was confirmed with our clients.
Our team installed all the flush casement uPVC windows and French doors in Wokingham in one day. The Flush casement windows with visible timber joint are incredibly pleasing to the eye with slim even sightlines to allow more sunlight to permit through the glass and naturally warm the house, deliver maximum thermal performance in their home. In the girl’s bedroom, we installed a large fixed window with obscure glazing for additional privacy. In the boy’s room, we installed a tilt and turn window from Rustique Royale range this window style has child safe restrictors and safe locking handles to ensure safety while allowing fresh air to ventilate the room.
The outward opening white uPVC French doors on the extension add class and elegance to the back of the home. They are creating a sense of space and openness while offering a seamless transmission between the family room and garden.
The combination of the roof lantern and large glazed French doors increases the amount of natural sunlight that floods into the family room, giving both light and warmth to the interior of this Wokingham home saving energy as well.
All the flush casement uPVC windows were fitted with shoot bolt locking systems to provide high levels of security, and the graphite handles were the perfect finishing touch.
All Halo windows and doors are argon gas filled and have a thermally efficient spacer bar, achieving a u-value of 1.4. Multi-chamber design ensures that the upgraded energy ratings of all their new glazing would substantially enhance the comfort of your home throughout the year but will also lower heating bills.
The homeowners are delighted with the transformation of the windows and doors and the new contemporary look throughout the house. The previous condensation issue has disappeared, and the new double glazed windows make the property much cosier and quieter.
