We recently transformed a square bay window in a terrace house in Bracknell, with energy-efficient white slim uPVC windows.
During the first national lockdown, the Bracknell homeowners decided it was a good time to start some home renovation. They had lived in their family home for a few years, and their existing double glazed windows and sliding doors were no longer efficient or secure.
They found Thames Valley Windows online by a Google search and completed a request for a free no-obligation quote for seven double glazed windows and one set of French doors and a replacement front door for their property. They also wanted to add a new double- glazed window for the garage.
Our designer Chris contacted the Bracknell homeowners to arrange a virtual showroom appointment to view the slim uPVC windows and doors on display. At the meeting, Chris listened to their requirements and provided a couple of quotes for the different options.
Chris worked closely with the Bracknell homeowners to supply and install a complete architectural glazing solution throughout the property.
The owners decided on Halo’s System 10 Rustique Royal Range casement windows and doors due to the slim even sightlines, modern performance, low maintenance the superb A-rated energy efficiency, and the high standard security features the system offers
They choose a smooth white finish internally and externally, ensuring the new windows and French doors were in keeping with neighbouring properties. They also opted for an egress hinge, internal bevelled beading and white handles for all of the casement windows.
An egress hinge is a popular choice for uPVC windows as it provides a smoother operation and allows the windows to open out to nearly 90 degrees. They have a typical “scissor” style friction stay with a button that allows the easy clean mode to be set.
Alongside the clean and sleek looking square bay window in the lounge, we also installed white uPVC double glazed French doors to the rear of the Bracknell property and a secure and thermally insulated anthracite grey composite door from the Apeer contemporary range.
All of the double- glazed windows and doors have greatly improved the property aesthetics and thermal performance. The slim sightlines allow for large panes of glass which provides lighter and brighter living spaces and help reduce energy bills.
The Bracknell homeowners are delighted with the new replacement windows providing outstanding thermal and acoustic performance, making the home quieter and warmer. To help with light control in the lounge they choose blinds for the window dressing in the square bay window another popular option is plantation shutters.
Halo’s System 10 range offer market-leading innovation with high-quality uPVC window frames and distinctive features, impressive functionality, stunning aesthetics and unrivalled quality.
The window system features internal chambers to drain any water ingress from the frame effectively. They are rot-proof and naturally resistant to atmospheric corrosion and mould, and offers excellent energy efficiency.
