A window to the best of all worlds
For those who live in a conservation area, have a period property or simply prefer the look of traditional windows, timber is no longer the only option.
For many years, foiled UPVC windows were clearly distinguishable from those made of wood.
However, thanks to advancements in design and technology there are now products available that offer the appearance of timber with the advantage of being low maintenance.
Created using the hallmarks of traditional joinery, the Heritage range of flush, sash windows are designed with 19th century detailing but made from modern, composite materials.
The authentic appearance of the Heritage range has been created considering Article 4 Conservation regulations to conform to historical design guidelines. Details include traditional putty lines, butt joints and ironmongery.
The foil that helps create the textured appearance of timber is continued throughout the window, including the reveal at the edge of the frame.
To maintain the period appearance it’s important to choose the correct colour and finish. The Heritage range comes in a number of classic shades as well as natural finishes including English and Silvered Oak.
It’s this attention to detail that has helped the Heritage range win the approval of planning officers.
Remember that conservation guidelines vary between local authorities, so it is advisable to check for your specific area.
