The source of increasing maintenance bills, the charming timber windows that were on this Oxford family home had become warped, becoming much harder to open. This required the replacement of more than one glass pane. Located 200 yards from the house, the noisy main road traffic could be heard through the windows which also allowed in drafts even though they were double glazed.
To help them decide whether their new double glazing window frames should be cream or white, our clients discussed the options with their Oxford neighbours. The houses nearby contained either replacement rosewood double glazing windows or original windows made from wood. The decision was made that cream or white windows may not fit in with the rest of the street in Oxford. To help the clients visualise the image of their uPVC double glazing, Oxford based designers created drawings of an architectural nature, which you can see in the above gallery. After visiting our showroom, with the images in mind, the couple confidently decided on which doors and double glazing windows were to be used.
For the interior, wood with a white finish was chosen, while the exterior would be kept natural with a traditional wooden finish, matching the décor inside and out, while also matching the rest of the homes on this Oxford street perfectly. Inside, the white wood finish helps to keep the rooms bright.
With a large garden attached to the Oxford property, ease of access was achieved through installing French Doors in the Dining Room and coming out of the Den.
The clients were extremely happy with the new uPVC double glazing, Oxford residents nearby being on the receiving end of delighted recommendations too. The new windows removed drafts and soundproofed effectively against the road. Overall our clients were happy to comment that the fitting of the new double glazing windows caused minimum disruption and there was no damage to paintwork.
