Ex-Vicarage transformed into quiet, cosy nest


This period gem included seventeen original sash windows; functional, but looking a little jaded. Peeling paint, draughts, heat loss and traffic noise were all perceived problems in need of a solution.

We recommended upvc Heritage Windows with a Cream finish for all the exteriors, and smooth white internally - and replicated the upper sash pane configurations to authentically match the originals. The Heritage Range is particularly well suited here, as many windows feature a distinctive 'three over one' glass arrangement requiring thin - astragal bar - period detailing to replicate the original glazing, all available as standard on Heritage Windows.

High efficiency A rated argon filled low-e glass units were supplied together with lockable high security sash catches - in an authentic period style -. finished in brushed satin to compliment the integral bottom sash lifters and upper sash pull handle.

Exposed sash box detailing on the outside is painted with Dulux Heritage Cream to mirror the upvc window colouring, with original cills re-faced to match.
