A draughty Edwardian detached house has been transformed into a warm and comfortable space, thanks to a range of external and internal insulation measures and use of PERFORMANCE triple glazed timber windows and doors from Green Building Store. The original windows included 4 bay wiindows and had single glazing, with some secondary glazing, and were mostly unopenable and painted fixed shut.
Triple glazed timber windows & doors
Green Building Store’s PERFORMANCE triple glazed entrance doors and inward opening tilt & turn windows were specified for the renovation project.
The clients commented: “We chose the PERFORMANCE range from Green Building Store because the windows were of a high quality and the price fitted our budget. We wanted the best windows we could find. We were installing other insulation measures in the house and didn’t want to spoil the effect by installing poorly performing windows.”
“We’re really pleased with the windows and doors from Green Building Store. The house is now warm and easy to heat and the triple glazing also helps make the house feel really quiet, despite living near some busy roads and ‘rat runs'”.
The Edwardian house features 4 large non-standard hand-finished asymmetrical bay windows and so care was needed to get the exact sizing and shape.
The clients added: “From the outset we knew that the bay windows would be complicated, so we wanted to have the windows fitted by experienced joiners and not just window fitters. Green Building Store’s fitting team are all experienced joiners and they did an incredibly good job in a difficult setting.”
The clients added: “It was good to deal with a company that offered personalised service and we developed a good relationship with Green Building Store’s fitting team and those back in the office.
The fitting team were really flexible about the timings of removing the old windows and installing the new ones, so that we could install the new windows in conjunction with our external wall insulation”.
