Case Study – Modern Aluminium Windows

Aluminium is an excellent replacement for traditional steel
windows and doors.

The brief

This beautiful Sevenoaks property was extensively expanded and refurbished in 2018/9 to accommodate a growing family’s needs.

Under the direction of celebrated local Architect Carmen Austin, The Window Sanctuary were awarded the contract to supply and install new aluminium windows, doors and an impressive curtain wall feature to the main façade.

Our approach

All window and door products were produced in thermally efficient aluminium systems.

The clients were particularly pleased with the “can do” attitude of our fitters and their ability to coordinate seamlessly with Simon King Construction, the chosen Builders.

A total of eighteen windows, six door sets and 24m² of curtain wall were successfully installed on time and on budget.

Product focus

Modern aluminium windows are highly thermally efficient, so they have very good energy efficiency. They also stop any future chance, or heavily reduce any future chance, of condensation through a hot/cold transfer. Due to the slim aluminium frames, a lot of architects tend to specify them on their projects. In addition to the slimline frames and thermal efficiency – the aluminium windows come in a range of colours to suit your home.

One project in particular used anthracite grey, which is a RAL colour, in a nice matt finish, so it didn’t look too modern. The customers were trying to create, or trying to retain, an Arts and Crafts style theme as well as reducing any future maintenance costs. So rather than 1930s style timber frames, they decided to fit the windows direct to the brickwork with tile hanging above, for that character appearance, but with no maintenance.

The result

Under the direction of celebrated local Architect Carmen Austin, The Window Sanctuary were awarded the contract to supply and install new aluminium windows and doors, plus an impressive curtain wall feature to the main façade.

The result is nothing less than a total transformation of the home!

  • 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++++

  • One year ago we had our windows and doors installed. We are very happy with the product so far. What made me write a review one year later is their amazing customer service. Our door needed adjustment and I asked someone to look at it and fix it. They send an engineer the next day, who came on time and managed to fix it. Very pleased. As it is quite rare these days, companies cut corners and dont look after their clients.

  • The team did a great job installing new sash windows in our flat: the wood grain effect on their PVC looks great, they took away our old windows and worked swiftly, on time and on budget to get the new ones fitted. I can definitely recommend them! Thanks!
