I chose windows and doors in keeping with the existing ones and those of the properties around me. They look beautiful and serve extremely well for heat insulation and noise reduction. They also give peace of mind with regards security.
Mr Bonner – West Midlands
This 1860’s semi-detached house in Edgbaston, West Midlands has undergone on an extensive refurbishment thanks to current owner, Mr Bonner, with the replacement of windows and doors being part of a much larger project.
“I chose windows and doors in keeping with the existing ones and those of the properties around me” Mr Bonner explains.
Having visited theTimber Windows showroom in Harborne, he was able to select the items and finishes to achieve the required result.
A grand bay window to the front of the property now has a traditional box sash window running on a chains and weights mechanism, and stands at 2.3 metres tall. Elsewhere, a number of sash windows with our slimmer box depth were specified to suit the openings. To the rear of the property a set of French doors with toplights open up the lounge and Bi-Folding doors liberate the kitchen area. All the items are painted in a ‘Cream’ finish.
Security, heat insulation and noise reduction
“They look beautiful and serve extremely well for heat insulation and noise reduction. They also give peace of mind with regards security.”
The only area of the house to be changed from its original formation is the kitchen and dining room, replacing a smaller opening previously, and this has become one of Mr Bonner’s favourite parts, “I am very happy with the final result. The ease of opening the new sashes is great, and the Bi-Folding doors add a whole new dimension to my kitchen, which now flows beautifully in the garden.”
