Casement windows are a classic type of window. They are designed to be durable, energy efficient, and noise-reducing. They can be fitted with fly screens to keep insects out. Casement windows also face the risk of water damage. Water vapour can permeate the window and drip down the frame, leaving the glass damp. Even if the windows have double glazing, they can still suffer water damage. This is because the double glazing unit can fail.
If you are planning a renovation for your property, consider upgrading to heritage casement windows. They are made from high-quality uPVC and are a great replacement for timber windows. They also offer low U-values, multi-point locking systems, and multi-chambered profiles, making them a safe and secure choice. They are also known to reduce noise and keep a room cool.
Flush casement windows
Heritage flush casement windows offer a traditional and elegant appearance, while providing excellent thermal retention. This reduces heat loss through the window and keeps heating costs down. Plus, these windows feature sleek and simple designs and are very easy to maintain. Cleaning is simple and the frames are built to resist all weather conditions. These windows also use sustainable materials that are both durable and recyclable. Furthermore, these windows are natural heat and sound insulators, meaning you can reduce your energy bills and save money at the same time.
The heritage flush casement window has been designed to replicate traditional timber windows, but with a modern edge. It looks fantastic in both traditional cottages and contemporary townhouses. These windows are available in a wide range of styles and colours and can be custom-made in a variety of styles.
Inswing and outswing doors
When looking for a new door for your home, it’s important to understand the difference between an inswing and an outswing door. The inswing type swings away from you and the outswing style swings inward toward you. To check if the door you are considering is inswing or outswing, stand up against the hinges with your back against the door.
Inswing doors are easier to force open, especially if you live in a cold climate. Outswing doors, on the other hand, are more secure. They can be pushed inward without breaking the seal, making them more resistant to breaking. For that reason, an inswing exterior door is better for bedrooms. On the other hand, an outswing door can block a hallway or a doorway.
Cladded wood windows
Cladded wood windows are an attractive alternative to traditional windows. Typically made of hemlock or fir, these windows are known for their elegance and strength. Their exterior is made of a premium quality powder coating, which provides superior resistance to weather influences. This exterior finish is also easy to maintain, as it never requires painting. Extruded aluminum profiles also offer excellent structural stability and can effectively combat air infiltration.
Cladded windows are an excellent choice for historic properties, but be aware that they can be susceptible to rotting. Even though cladding is intended to protect wood from the elements, weak welds and attachment mechanisms can allow water to penetrate the wood, which may not be detected until it’s too late. This is why it’s best to look for windows that are designed to withstand weather conditions.
Ultra thin vacuum double glazing
Ultra thin vacuum double glazing for heritage window is a great way to improve the efficiency of your windows, preserving the historic style of your home. These windows are three to four times as effective as traditional triple glazing, but are significantly thinner. This means that they allow more sunlight in while reducing heating costs. Plus, they can save you thousands of pounds and months of restoration work.
There is a growing market for vacuum glazing units in new windows installed in heritage buildings. The reduced cavity size means that the window remains traditional in appearance, while the reduced weight means that it performs significantly better than the old windows. The new window is often referred to as a Heritage Window. One company that pioneered the use of vacuum glazing for heritage window is Gowercroft, which has won multiple awards for its innovative product offering.
There are numerous benefits of fiberglass windows, including their durability and affordability. Fiberglass is also water-resistant, and is one of the best window materials on the market. While wood is considered the gold standard for window frames, it requires significant maintenance and wear. Vinyl is also a cost-effective option, but it lacks the decorative options that fiberglass windows have.
Fiberglass is an excellent option for older homes, which may not have enough space for a wooden window. These windows are not only durable but they can mimic the look of traditional wood. They are also more energy efficient than other window materials.
