If your home is located in a conservation area, you have a period property or simply prefer the look of traditional windows, then timber is no longer the only option.
Thanks to advances in design and technology there are now products available on the market that offer the appearance of timber while being low maintenance.
The Heritage Windows range of flush, sash windows are designed with 19th century detailing but made from modern, composite materials.
The authentic appearance of this range of windows has been created under the guidance of Article 4 Conservation regulations to conform to historical design guidelines.
All-important details such as traditional putty lines, classic ironmongery and butt joints make for a window with classic appeal.
The frame is finished with a special foil that helps create the textured appearance of wood. This is carried through the entire frame to give an authentic-looking timber appearance. In order to maintain the period appearance, it’s important to choose the correct colour and finish.
The Heritage Windows range comes in a number of classic shades as well as natural finishes including English and Silvered Oak, which has helped it to win the approval of many local government planning officers. It is important to remember that conservation guidelines vary between local authorities, so it is advisable to check for your specific area.
