PERFORMANCE triple glazed timber windows at low energy retrofit
I had known about Green Building Store for a number of years. When I started work on this project I came to Green Building Store for a quote, alongside quotes from two other companies. I was impressed with the quality of the PERFORMANCE range and the price was good. Another important factor for this project was that the quoted delivery time was also quite speedy. In addition to their durability and thermal properties, the windows look good too.

We have really noticed the comfort effect of triple glazing over double glazing. I’ve also been impressed with the ironmongery on the PERFORMANCE doors and windows which feel quite robust and have good seals – even on glazed openings as big as 1200mm X 1200mm.

Low Carbon Studio architect Colin Campbell undertook an extension and upgrade to his own home in  East Lothian using Green Building Store’s PERFORMANCE triple glazed timber windows and doors.

The new extension used a Douglas fir frame with larch weather boarding to the walls and cedar shingles to the roof. An air source heat pump powers the heating system and the walls and roof were super-insulated with 200mm insulation. Green Building Store’s PERFORMANCE triple glazed windows and doors were also specified.

The PERFORMANCE windows and doors have been performing well at the project and are contributing to its overall thermal performance.
