SO MANY CHOICES

Window design choices

From a terraced property to a country pile, period building or contemporary residence, your home was designed to a particular style.

The windows chosen at the time complimented that style and we believe passionately that, wherever possible, it should be maintained or retro fitted.

 

Useful tip

Stand well back from the property and look at the whole elevation. Does the property stand alone, or is it adjacent to other properties of a similar design?

Are the windows well balanced and symmetrical in design. If not, now is the time to rectify matters. The value of your home and its desirability can be seriously affected by poor window planning.

OUR ADVICE IS ABSOLUTELY FREE AND GIVEN WITHOUT OBLIGATION TO BUY

 

Framing material

Timber is ideal for traditional casement and sash windows. With multiple protective treatments and microporous paint sprayed finishes, it can closely replicate the original frames.It is the ideal choice for purists.

Aluminium offers either a complete replacement solution or can be inserted into an original timber surround. This often obviates the need for redecoration of surrounding walls.

Initially, aluminium is scratch anodised to prevent oxidisation and then polyester powder coated from a choice of over 200 colours. This is the ideal choice for replacing ageing draughty and rusting steel windows or to produce a minimalist effect where very slim framing is preferred. PVCu is a more bulky material requiring concealed steel strengthening. It is a functional and generally lower cost option offered in plain or grained finishes available in an attractive range of colours.

Glazing

Building regulations dictate that all glazed products achieve a minimum u-value. All DGCOS members must strictly comply and register new installations with the local authority.

Specialist energy glass and argon gas filled cavities are industry standard, as are solar control and sound reducing options. We will be pleased to advise you accordingly.

Lead and Georgian features are also available.

 

Survey

This is the crucial first stage of any new project. Apart from providing accurate measurements prior to manufacture, the company surveyor’s job is to convey the exact nature of the site noting where protective coverings are required such as for carpets, stairs, glass roofs, plants and bushes that need attention. He will also take note of any special requests regarding parking of vehicles, clearance of old materials and so on. A health and safety assessment is conducted as part of the survey to ensure that the appropriate access equipment and tooling is used during installation.

A copy of the manufacturing schedule will be presented to the client for sign off prior to commencement of manufacture. Sizes are of course the Company’s responsibility.
This schedule forms the basis of the installers’ site instructions.

 

Installation

The Window Sanctuary employs its fitting staff directly. We have found over many years that the best results are achieved from a team mentality. Regretfully sub contractors rarely display this trait.

While competence is essential, we value attitude to work just as highly and our customers can rest assured that our fitters will act courteously and respectfully at all times and that they are proud to be part of a successful team.

  • 5 star review  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++++

  • 5 star review  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!

  • 5 star review  A great experience with The Window Sanctuary. They supplied and installed some celestial windows and roof lights to a loft conversion that we carried out. It is a period property with original sash windows and it was important to us that the new windows were in keeping with the character of the original house. We are delighted with the finished product. The customer service was very good and they were amenable when our architect got carried away and the window sizes increased quite materially from the original quotation - thereby working hard to minimise the extra costs. The quotation process was quick and efficient. Their surveyor, Steve, was very professional and also had a strong technical knowledge to help advise us during the build stage. The installation team were very professional and worked extremely hard to get the windows fitted during poor weather. The lady on the front desk, Jeannette, was also very friendly/helpful despite my numerous calls to the office throughout the process. There were a few delays but this was the result of CoVid as opposed to anything in their control, and Simon worked hard to get the order pushed through the suppliers and installed promptly. I always like to support local businesses and this one did not disappoint. Will definitely use them again going forward for any further works. Thank you.
