Timber Sash Window Replacement In Surrey
Upgrading Historic Window & Door Designs With Modern Day Performance
Symmetry and balance were the guiding principles for this window and door project. Marvin Architectural was specified by the client to replace their family home’s old wood windows and doors in Surrey. The original wooden single glazed windows presented many problems for the homeowner such as rotten timber and poor energy efficiency which caused unpleasant drafts in the home.
With the size of the luxurious home being approximately 4000sq ft., there were a couple of challenges in this luxury window and door project that needed to be addressed.
Replicating Original Georgian Sliding Sash Windows & French Doors
The client requested to replicate the original Georgian window and door designs. The 18mm ovolo glazing bar profile was specified by the client for both the sliding sash windows and french doors. This resulted in both consistent narrow shadow lines and sightlines throughout the home.
Maintaining low U-values without sacrificing the authentic historic appearance was crucial to the client. Offering a range of 4 authentic profile styling designs combined together with the latest in timber technology, Marvin Architectural’s traditional double glazed timber windows and doors offered the superb thermal and acoustic performance required by the client.
The engineered finger-jointed timber provides both greater structure and prevents the windows and doors from warping or twisting. A pure white paint finish (RAL 9010) was applied to both the interior and exterior of the windows & doors, using premium quality Teknos paint to prolong the lifespan of the products.
Marvin Architectural allowed the finished home to maintain period feeling both indoors and out. The flexibility of these premium products helped to make the design vision of the client work, and all the elements came together in a seamless, well-crafted whole. The smooth installation by Marvin’s in-house installers was greatly appreciated by the client for their swift work and meticulous attention to detail.
