Location: Littlewick Green, Maidenhead
We recently installed white wood effect uPVC windows into a detached 1920’s house in a semi-rural location in Littlewick Green, Maidenhead.
The homeowners have been customers of Thames Valley Windows for 21 years since we first designed and installed a conservatory in 2009!
They had no doubt in returning to us when they required fifteen additional replacement windows to match their 2013 installation of Evolution Storm 2 timber alternative windows for their family home.
Littlewick Green is a popular classic English village of just a few roads, mostly set around its picturesque village green. The idyllic village location has been featured in several episodes of Midsomer Murders.
Our designer Chris contacted the Littlewick Green homeowners to arrange a date and time to visit their home to discuss and measure the windows.
Storm 2 is part of the Evolution timber alternative window range. The uPVC window frames with a wood effect finish are manufactured with the most exemplary attention to detail, providing timber’s authentic look and feel.
The window frame is 82mm deep and features a handcrafted square timber butt joint and a deep 45mm cill replicating the aesthetics and beauty of a traditional wooden window.
These timber effect windows are manufactured from high-quality uPVC material with the benefits of thermal insulation and noise reduction performance and come with an energy rating of A as standard to help lower energy bills.
Inspired by traditional joinery and craftmanship, the Storm 2 windows combine innovative design and modern state-of-the-art technology to design bespoke wood effect windows with period detailing, including Georgian bars or leaded windows.
Evolution Timber alternative windows are available in standard white, or a range of colourful colours with a wide selection of wood grain effect finishes suiting both traditional and contemporary properties and offering more excellent security features.
The Littlewick Green period property is believed to have been built in the late 19th century and benefits from Art deco characteristics features such as geometric shapes, vertical clean lines, a curved front door and arched doorway, and leaded fanlights.
The white wood effect uPVC windows offer all the beauty and warmth of traditional timber windows and are in keeping with the traditional aesthetic of the Tudor style exterior of exposed black beams and gable features and blend in with the brickwork.
The casement windows are finished with a white wood grain and ovolo edges that closely resemble the timeless and traditional look of timber windows but are energy efficient and virtually maintenance-free. The double-glazed units are toughened, filled with argon gas and have a low emissivity coating which helps to retain heat within and provide long-lasting thermal efficiency.
The traditional wrought iron monkey tail handles, and peg stays complete the period look.
The clear glazing allows natural light to enter the property and provides the Littlewick Green homeowners with splendid rural views.
Evolution uPVC windows and doors successfully replicate traditional timber, making it an ideal window solution for a conservation project as local planning authorities approve them.
The Littlewick Green homeowners are delighted with their white wood-effect uPVC windows and gave Thames Valley Windows the following 5-star Trustpilot review:
All very smooth, efficient and easy Good crew and support
