This beautiful and traditional cottage has been rejuvenated with Timber Casement Windows in Reading, Berkshire, adding further character to this family home. The original windows didn’t look their best, and were no longer energy efficient or secure.
The replacement timber windows are made from European Redwood Timber and finished with monkey tail and antique black tear drop handles.
The owners particularly wanted the long-lasting security that our Timber Casement Windows in Reading range offered. Any homeowner can enjoy complete peace of mind knowing they are custom built for safety and are naturally resistant to mould, rot and atmospheric corrosion, allowing them to enjoy these windows with minimal maintenance throughout the year.
These high-quality Timber Casement windows are a charming addition to any home. The owners commented: “The process started back in September 2018 and after the initial discussion with Freddie who took on board what we were trying to achieve with this project he worked tirelessly to come up with a proposal that matched our budget constraints but also suited the ‘feel’ of an 1850’s cottage. We took the opportunity to visit the show room in Bracknell and that helped make our minds up that wooden was worth the additional cost and with a handful of tweaks we agreed to the proposal and staged payment process”.
These new modern engineered timber casement windows in Reading will last a lifetime. Our client said: “The quality and finish of the final product is excellent but the real stars of the show are the fitters. February saw some of the worst weather of the year but they worked around that to ensure we were as water tight as we could possibly be by tackling each window in a way that could be completed inside difficult light and time constraints – plus, they had to deal with fitting issues that due to the age of the cottage no one could have fully foreseen. If you are lucky to have Jamie & Sid as your team then you will be very pleased with the end result, but in truth the additional crew that came out to assist with our project were also very good and so I would have confidence in who ever turned up to fit. In short, a top quality product with superb fitters”.
As homeowners, we continue to seek out simplicity, efficiency and beauty throughout our homes. It’s no secret that we are veering more toward the modern and contemporary in our style choices. Beyond looks, we expect high performance in the form of efficiency, functionality and durability.
