A Cotswold Home Improvement

The client wanted to refresh the look of their home, but also modernise and future-proof. Improvements in airtightness and insulation were critical to this client, as was the quality of the product used and its likely longevity.

In this project, a 70mm depth mahogany window was removed and a 115mm depth composite window was installed. Significant gains in thermal performance were made from the quality and insulation around the installation, with the Tremco Iilbruck i3 system being used to enhance thermal and acoustic performance.

The AuraPlus flush casement was provided as a straight replacement for a traditional softwood window. The external finish was a 30% gloss level Pebble Grey (RAL 7032) along with a contrasting (RAL 6003 Olive Green front door from the same product range). Colour-coded aluminium cill pressings were fabricated and installed as part of our work.

Not only does the style fit in with the area, but the choice to not have any glazing bars means more light entering the home and a much cleaner design.
All windows were provided with friction brakes, to hold the window open at any angle, and our German installation technique will allow the windows to achieve their true potential for many years to come.
