Roodee cottage is set in an idyllic rural setting, surrounded by National Trust green belt land, a true example of a traditional residence. The owners of Roodee cottage are sympathetically renovating this property, paying close attention to the cottage's original features and the windows are no exception. The cottage was fitted with original timber casement windows which were tired, draughty and had started to rot. Installing traditional UPVC casement windows was not an option as they would not be in keeping with the original style of the property, so an appropriate alternative was required.
After several consultations at John Knight Glass, Evolution Flush windows were the perfect choice for this cottage as they offer all the benefits of a traditional UPVC window, such as enhanced energy efficiency, 'A' rated double glazing and low maintenance. Despite enjoying these modern features, they also stay true to the original style of the original timber casement windows with their flush design, painted wood effect foil finish, Georgian style bars and mechanical joints. The windows were also fitted with traditional furniture internally such as the monkey tail handles and working peg-stays giving the authentic feel of a traditional window.
Similarly a timber effect front door was also selected from the Evolution range with a matching wood foil finish both internally and externally to match the windows perfectly. The door was also fitted with traditional cast iron effect door hardware for a seamless aesthetic throughout.
Installing Evoluton windows in Roodee Cottage has improved the comfort of this home whilst staying true to the original period and charm of the property with the added bonus of a low maintenance UPVC system removing the need to paint the windows throughout coming years, the perfect investment for the future. To say the owners of this cottage are delighted with their new windows and door is an understatement.
