Ice Cream Grain uPVC Windows, for Detached House Refurbishment, Wokingham

Location: Wokingham

As part of this detached house refurbishment in Wokingham, we replaced all the old single-glazed brown wooden windows with these beautiful ice cream grain windows from the Halo Heritage range.

The Wokingham homeowners had lived in their family home for many years and decided it was time to modernise their home; the wooden windows were no longer energy efficient; they were showing signs of wear and tear, which affected the house’s appearance.

They decided as part of their house refurbishments the house’s exterior required a much-needed facelift, but they were keen for replacement windows that offered 21st-century performance but maintained its traditional appearance that complimented the style of the property.

After researching many local double glazing companies online, the Wokingham homeowners were impressed by our outstanding Trustpilot reviews, so they contacted us for a free no, obligation quote.

Our designer Joe contacted the homeowner, and after discussing their detached house refurbishment and their windows in much detail, he recommended that they visit our Showroom in Bracknell to view the range of windows we have on display.

They agreed on a whole house of replacement windows and doors at the showroom appointment, including their Kitchen Orangery extension. They fell in love with the charm and elegance of the Halo Heritage windows, finished in ice cream with a textured woodgrain finish.

After discussing the different options for the Halo Heritage Collection, the Wokingham homeowners chose the double-glazed Halo Heritage flush range in casement style with even sightlines and mechanical joints to emulate timber butt joints and finished in Ice Cream grain on both the outside and inside to give the authentic look of wooden windows.

The double-glazed glass units in the ice cream grain uPVC windows offer superb A-rated energy efficiency; they are filled with argon gas and a warm-edge white spacer bar and have a Low E soft coating. They offer outstanding thermal performance and enhance the home’s aesthetics and energy efficiency.

The Halo Heritage Collection is designed with carbon footprint reduction and sustainability in mind. A cost-effective alternative to traditional timber windows manufactured with the characteristics and charm of period wooden windows.

The Halo flush window is designed with a 70mm outer frame. The innovative double-glazed system offers higher levels of security and outstanding thermal performance. It is designed to sit flush within its frame for a stylish, sleek, virtually maintenance-free look.

They are designed with the latest security and safety features, giving you complete peace of mind and reassurance that your home is always safe and secure.

Every opening window is manufactured with a multi-point locking system whilst easy clean egress hinges are fitted as standard to all side-opening windows to follow Building regulations that the window open at 90 degrees to allow for an alternative fire escape route.

Cream uPVC windows are on-trend and popular with homeowners due to their versatility. A subtle and timeless colour oozes elegance and luxury, adding Heritage charm to period properties and contemporary new builds.

The end result is stunning; the ice cream grain colour is pleasing to the eye, compliments the traditional British brick, and adds instant wow to the property. The flush window provides clean, slim sightlines, so they are the perfect choice to help enhance authenticity that makes a statement and adds a contemporary twist to this beautiful detached traditional home.

The design of the Halo Flush Heritage system means they do not impede on the aesthetics of the windows so that the Wokingham home has retained its elegant characteristics, which provide both functional and aesthetic improvements.

Throughout this house refurbishment, many casement windows have been designed with dummy sash where no opening window is required. This design feature helps to create the timber look and ensures a balanced design with equal sight lines throughout.

The Halo Flush heritage windows have given this Wokingham property a modern makeover and a new lease of life with the added benefit of having the latest security and thermal performance.

The ice cream grain interior finish complements the neutral décor and gives the living spaces a bright and spacious feel.

The Wokingham homeowners are delighted with their new windows and doors; their house is warmer and quieter.

We have some fantastic before photos to showcase the transformation.

With the current high mortgage rates, many homeowners are choosing to start home renovation projects rather than move houses.

From a loft conversion to a bathroom renovation or open-plan house extension, many areas must be considered when planning a refurbishment project.

First are the house renovation costs and what you expect to pay. For a property renovation, you will need to consider local planning permission, party wall agreements, and a structural survey.

You may want to consider a project management team to help with the extension costs, structural work or quantity surveyors.
