Traditional Casement Windows and Door Replacement Project

Beauty and performance combined with Signature's replacement wooden windows

Traditional Casement Windows and Door Replacement Project

The dream family house in a very sought-after area in the city centre had one major problem with its poorly installed PVC windows: the draught coming into the house made the rooms extremely uncomfortable. The key objective was to increase thermal comfort and to achieve the perfect design and colour to the new windows. Another challenge was to adjust the shape of the bay windows so they would perfectly fit into the existing frames.

TRADITIONAL REPLACEMENT PROJECT IN THE CITY CENTRE

This semi-detached house is located in a very sought-after area in the city centre. After moving in 2012, the homeowner found problems with the PVC windows, which the previous owner had installed. The draught coming from the windows even made the curtains move and caused a great discomfort for the family.

High-performance solutions combined with a sleek design

After researching for the best solutions to improve performance, another personal challenge was to find the perfect design for the new windows. The house was built in the 1930’s in Art-Deco style typical of the red brick terrace buildings in this suburb. The Signature casement window with overhead awning provided the best value and matched the exact appearance the homeowner was looking for.

One of the major challenges of the replacement was the bay window. The original bay window had six panels and the Signature design team drew up an option of window design with 5 panels. This created a more aesthetically pleasing look.

The quality and beauty of the timber on the casement windows from Signature’s traditional range were the major factors that influenced the decision to go with the Signature company. A bespoke wood entrance door worked very well with sidelights and transoms. The energy efficiency of the house was enhanced by as much as 37%. With its original appearance brought back to life, the house now has the kerb appeal it deserves.
