Slimline Windows & French Doors in Rosewood: Woking, Surrey

22nd May 2019

The Project

Our Woking clients had lived in their home since 1985 and were in the process of moving to another place when things fell through. So, rather than move, they chose to improve their current home instead.

As Woking is a town that we often work in, coincidence would have it that this particular client of ours already knew a lot of people who had hired us to improve their home. So, being already aware of our expert credentials, they chose us to enhance theirs too.

For this particular home improvement project, we replaced virtually every window on our client’s home with our very own uPVC slimline windows. We also replaced a set of old aluminium sliding patio doors with a matching set of slimline French doors.

How we helped

The original windows on our client’s home were built from dark timber, an appearance that they were hoping to retain if possible. After finding timber window replacements too costly, they opted for uPVC versions. Generally, uPVC windows are more cost-effective than timber ones, yet they perform just as well. For example, our slimline windows achieve energy ratings of ‘A’. So, by replacing their existing windows with them, our client’s property became instantly more energy efficient.

However, to ensure our clients were still able to enjoy the natural beauty of dark timber, a rich Rosewood finish was applied to the windows and French doors. Although this Rosewood finish ensured the traditional charm of their property was retained, we completed its traditional look with a couple of other features.

The first being the use of French doors. These are the classic patio door solution, meaning they could still transition between the inside and outside of their home but they could do so whilst enjoying a quaint, charming design. To finish off the look, rectangular leaded glass was added to them along with the windows.

Thanks to the new windows and French doors, this property now performs as a modern home should but it still has all of its original character.

How they found working with us

In addition to being very happy with how much their new windows looked like their old ones, our Woking clients had this to say:

“An excellent installation carried out on time! The fitters Stef and Andy arrived early every day. They were very clean and tidy, ensuring they used dust sheets and cleared up all of their mess.”

Located only a short distance away from our Sheerwater home, we’ve helped Woking homeowners to improve their properties since 1972. So, if you’ve got a project in mind for your Woking home, please feel free to get in touch with us as we’ll be delighted to help.
