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!

  • 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.

  • 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!

  • Very professional. I have used other window companies before but the service provided by them left much to be desired when compared to Window Santuary. Any snagging problem was promptly sorted out by the management promptly and to our satisfaction. The workers were very punctual, came daily and stopped only when fully finished. I would highly recommend this window company to others.
