Timber Windows installed in Chester

Alternative Timber Windows, Chester

The owners of this stunning period semi detached Edwardian residence in Chester wanted to replace their existing timber windows due to the on-going maintenance costs, as well as the lack of energy efficiency associated with single glazed units. As the character of the windows is integral to the look and charm of the property choosing the right replacement was of great importance to the owners, so having seen how modern UPVC windows look it was clear that a modern UPVC window was not an option. After a visit to our showroom and looking at various window options including timber and our specialist range of timber alternative UPVC windows, our clients were surprised with how authentic our UPVC timber alternative windows from Evolution look.

The Evolution windows and door range has been specifically developed for this type of property, with many features developed into the window to imitate the look of timber without the need for the regular re-painting required by timber windows. Some of the standout features on these windows include traditional butt joints, astragal glazing bars, black wood-grain frame with white wood-grain casements, slimline frame to match timber, cast iron monkey tail handles and peg stays.

To the rear of the property the owners have added an orangery which has been designed to blend in with the original style of the property. Matching brickwork and windows has blended this addition seamlessly with the property. A feature skylight has been installed to flood the rear of the property with natural light, which has been given a traditional look with ornate glazing bars, completing this project perfectly.
