Case Study – Dormer Windows

Aluminium is an excellent solution for dormer windows.

The brief

The original part of the property already had two Dormer windows and our customer wanted to fit another two or three Dormer windows, replicating the existing style.

Our approach

We matched the old windows with new sub-frames for the new Dormer windows. The new sub-frames included the same level of detail on the frames. We also matched the details of the original windows exactly, so that the new matches the old throughout – even though the windows have been fitted at different times the result looks the same.

When the customer came into our showroom he showed us the plans of the extension he was going to build. We discussed materials and we completed a site visit of the property, so that we could check the age of the property and the existing windows. Initially, the customer had thought about replacing three or four Dormer windows. However, a decision was made to replace all of the existing windows with new sub-frames and new casements.

We worked with the local builder to ensure a superior finish to the project.

Product focus

We used products from the Alitherm Heritage range.

The result

The property now benefits from brand new Dormer windows, which work perfectly with the windows that were originally part of the property.


Our Google Reviews

  • The team at The Window Sanctuary have been a delight to work with. They have given us really personal customer service, ensuring that every final detail works for us and our build and have listened to what is important to us (happy to be flex when we change our minds!). Quick to respond and offering a really consultative approach, alongside good value for high quality products, I would strongly recommend their service. I was really specific in what I wanted for bifold doors, wanting time achieve that much coveted Crittall appearance and they’ve made this work for us with a good quality option that doesn’t break the bank. What a find!

  • The Window Sanctuary supplied and installed our patio doors. We are extremely happy with the service they provided and couldn’t be happier with how the doors have turned out. They are exactly the look and quality that we were after.

  • We recently had a new front door and windows fitted. Very efficient service from start to finish with everyone extremely helpful. The fitter was very careful especially bearing in mind it was raining on the day of fitting. Would definitely recommend.
