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.

  • We had a few quotes for 2 x black aluminium windows and French aluminium doors with fixed side panels. The Window Sanctuary were the most competitively priced and were quick to respond to our quote request and follow up questions. The timeline they gave for delivery and installation was accurate and the installers did a great job. We are really happy with our high quality and stylish looking doors and windows! Makes such a difference to our house.

  • The Window Sanctuary supplied and installed a window in the current house we are restoring. We were extremely happy with the service and quality of the window. Would definitely recommend this company for your period windows.

  • A great experience with these guys from beginning to end. We had 2 windows replaced and had them altered to larger sizes. Also had 2 doors replaced, one to a full size which meant taking out walls and sidelights. A messy job but the team came in and within 2 days it was out with the old ones, all rubble taken away, and new frames in. The second team then came in to install the glass and the bars and make good the walls inside and out to a fine finish. Couldn't fault it. Amazing work. Would and have recommended this company to everyone who has seen and admired our new windows and doors. A++++
