Flush casement windows, front doors, stable doors and French doors were all part of the remarkable transformation of this 1820’s cottage in a village just outside of York.
Before this renovation, homeowners Mr and Mrs Milton experienced a dreary, dark house. The couple explains “At some time in the past, the cottage was given dark sash windows, which were of poor quality – they rattled, had thin single glazing and were the source of many draughts”.
After a consultation with our team, Mr and Mrs Milton decided Cottage Flush Casement Windows would be an ideal choice to suit the style of their property, whilst creating a noticeable change from what had been in place previously.
In terms of style, the couple chose a French Grey colour finish with 18mm astragal glazing bars, and a Staverton entrance door in a matching colour. Their new entrance door was detailed with black ironmongery and leaded glass.
A year after installation, Mr and Mrs Milton are experiencing many benefits from their new windows and doors. “We’ve had the new windows and doors in for a year now, and have been through a winter too – we even turned the thermostat down as the house is so much warmer.” This also isn’t the only benefit the couple explains “although rural, we live on quite a busy, pass-through road, and we barely hear anything from outside now, not even the rain!”
