Having moved from London to Harrogate, North Yorkshire 8 years ago, Mr & Mrs Bell took on their detached, 1905 built home carrying out huge modernisation works to make it suitable for modern family living, having previously had long term elderly owners.
“We’ve renovated and remodeled on a grand scale here, and as we’ve tackled each area of the house, we’ve had Timber Windows in to replace the appropriate windows and doors in conjunction with this; so far we’ve done four separate phases since 2009” Mr Bell explains.
“The original windows were cold and leaky, and as it’s quite a cold house in general this wasn’t helping; we really wanted to find a company that could provide us with good quality timber windows backed by good guarantees, and that brought us to Timber Windows via an online search.”
Being sensitive to the character and style of the house has been at the forefront of their minds, “our aim has been not to stray too far away from the style and design of the original windows, so where possible we’ve got the same configuration.”
Traditional White timber flush casement windows with chrome ironmongery and 27mm glazing bars are fitted throughout.
“We have mixed it up and been more daring with the front door; the style of the door is quite traditional but we opted for a contemporary colour and numbering style paired with the smart Samuel Heath hardware.” The design is a Frenchay door in a painted Urbane Grey finish with Chrome Ring door knocker, letter plate and Profile door knob along with sandblasted glass and clear house number.
“We’ve had no problems at all with the installation or the products over all the phases during the past 6 years, and that’s why we keep returning for further work. The new windows have made a noticeable difference to the warmth and the sound levels from outside are greatly reduced too.”
