A stone’s throw from the open green area that was once the site of the 11th-century Deddington Castle sits a row of striking period properties. Although the stone facade of their home looks beautiful, the owners were acutely aware that their inefficient single glazing was making their home draughty, cold, and damp, which in turn was causing their energy bills to rise dramatically. The homeowners wanted to replace their old windows, but before coming across CN Glass had been concerned that any new replacement would negatively impact the character of the property. Thankfully we were able to lay their concerns to rest with our suggestions for windows that were in keeping with the look of the house.
This installation included:
- George Barnsdale – historic, flush casement, timber windows
At CN Glass, we understand that replacing the windows in a period home can be a difficult decision, so our sales consultant took the time to guide the owners through the replacement window options. They were keen to find energy-efficient replacements with modern benefits and historic styling, so George Barnsdale’s historic, flush casement timber windows were a natural choice.
The customer chose this window as it is exceptionally thermally efficient and includes slim heritage double-glazed units, using a traditional putty and hardwearing paint finish in standard white. Whatever the British weather throws at these windows, we’re so confident they’ll perform perfectly that they come with a 10-year guarantee.
By choosing modern timber windows, the owners were able to find the perfect colour to tone with the stone, keep as much character as possible and replicate the current period look.
The choice of Pebble Grey (RAL 7032) on White with internal monkey tail handles gave this attractive home the perfect blend of traditional and modern.
