Windows the way they are meant to be19/05/2017
The Residence collection and Residence 9 is a new window system designed to replicate the 19th Century Flush Sash Timber Window.
It can be considered for use in Conservation Areas due to its authentic appearance. This authentic design is also appealing to any homeowner who wants a top end luxury window brand.
Looks Like Wood, Feels Like Wood and Outperforms Wood.
If you are replacing windows in an historic house or character property, you may feel inclined to choose wood. Here are some considerations…
Wooden windows require regular maintenance over the years to keep them looking their best.
This upkeep is both time consuming and costly.
Wooden windows are expensive and will often cost more than Residence 9.
The Residence 9 finishing layer only needs occasional cleaning with soapy water.
No painting or special maintenance required.
Wood distorts when wet and cracks when extremely dry on hot days. Sashes can be tight to open in the winter because they swell but drafty in the summer as the timber dries out.
This can put pressure on handles and locks as they are forced to operate.
The thermal performance or insulation gained from Residence 9 will usually outperform a timber window with like for like glass.
Put Residence 9 alongside a timber window and ask yourself which is more beautiful? Could you distinguish the material from the kerbside of your home? Which will be more beautiful in 5 years time.
