This Wokingham property is now more energy-efficient thanks to the white uPVC casement windows we recently installed.
The semi-detached family home is situated in a quiet cul-de-sac in a sought-after area in Wokingham.
The existing double glazed uPVC windows were 25 years old and offered minimal thermal benefit, and were in desperate need of replacing.
Noticing one of Thames Valley Windows vans in the Wokingham area, the homeowners got in touch for a free no-obligation quote for replacing 11 windows, including a bay window.
Our designer Joe contacted the homeowners and arranged a home visit. Joe took some sample frame sections with him to demonstrate to the homeowner’s the different options.
After talking through their home improvement project, they arranged an appointment at our Bracknell showroom to help with the decision-making.
At the appointment, they had the opportunity to view a range of full-size uPVC window styles on display, with the opportunity to open and close the windows and feel the quality.
The Wokingham homeowners also decided to replace their existing front door, a set of French doors at the back of the house, for An Line sliding patio door.
They chose System 10 Royale Range from Halo for the replacement windows, all finished in smooth white for both the interior and exterior and decided on a welded joint look.
