We were delighted to be asked to replace the windows and doors throughout this beautiful character property in Maresfield, near Uckfield, East Sussex.
The owners, Tara and Rob, had recently purchased this classic Sussex cottage and were in the process of restoring it to its former glory.
Their new home included single glazed, Crittall windows. These had unattractive interior secondary glazing, which they were keen to replace.
In fitting new windows and doors, it was essential that they were in keeping with the style of the building. The new owners were also keen to improve their home’s energy efficiency. In particular, to keep it warm during the winter months, and minimise ongoing maintenance.
We were replacing the original, Crittall style, steel windows. Aluminium windows were the obvious choice – a very close match in style, but much longer lasting and more energy efficient.
We showed Rob and Tara a range of options. We ultimately agreed that our Heritage range, powder coated in dark grey, would be the best choice.
These slim, stylish aluminium windows not only look great, they also have an energy efficiency A rating.
To ensure that the new windows were in keeping with the age and style of the home, we surface-mounted ‘astragal’ Georgian-style bars on all windows and doors.
“Monkey tail” handles complete the authentic look.
We were absolutely delighted with the final result and so were Tara and Rob:
Having bought an old cottage with single glazed Crittall windows and ugly secondary glazing we were looking for a window company that could supply new, energy efficient windows that looked right.
Window Wise came up trumps not only with slim aluminium framed windows maximising the light into the cottage but also managed to matched the crossover glazing bars to other windows on the cottage.
None of the cottage walls or window apertures are square and the Window Wise team managed to seamlessly blend the old and new, even taking on a small amount of building work to ensure that the windows were at the same level.
Two years on we still love our windows and door and would highly recommend Windows Wise to anyone.
In recent years, aluminium has become the ‘go to’ choice for homeowners seeking stylish and long-lasting windows and doors.
