If you are having replacement windows fitted you will rightly demand the best and most efficient installation.
Well, here at Enfield Windows we are meeting that demand with the help of an exciting and relatively new product – the “Residence” range of replica timber windows.
The R7 and R9, as they’re known, are based on the depth and scale of the original timber frames, so that new windows can be fitted without all the mess and bother of cutting back the internal plaster line.
This makes the Residence range the ideal solution for replacement windows in period properties. They are beautifully engineered, offer fantastic insulation and look good enough to be used in conservation areas.
One of our clients had original windows, dating back to the 1930s, on his house in Watford, and was looking to replace all the windows at the front with high-end replica frames. After searching online, he came across the Residence range.
These are arguably the leading brand in uPVC replica timber windows. They are handcrafted using the very best materials and specification best suited to original windows with flush sashes — mechanical joins, a bespoke range of handles, working and dummy butt hinges — every detail is based on original timber windows.
The choice of colour our client favoured was a soft cream to match the original fascias and soffits. Our sales team set about obtaining a quotation based on the colour, opening configurations, and choice of hardware.
On receipt of our invoice, Enfield Windows registered the installation with the IBG Insurance backed guarantee scheme. This is a policy that covers the installation for 10 years plus monies paid.
The survey was then booked the following week, when our fully trained surveyor noted the final dimensions for manufacturing, which would include, among many details, the depth of the fanlight angles for the bay window sills.
Our surveyor also took photographs and listed any specific items and trims to enable the installation to proceed with minimum fuss and disruption.
After the survey, the order goes through to order processing and once processed and fully checked it is signed off and sent over to the manufacturers ready for production. The lead time for the R7 and R9 is generally six weeks, though some suppliers can vary.
The installation itself was carried out over two days, in which we replaced the lounge and front bedroom seven-part bay windows and a further single front bedroom window.
The completed pictures show how the R7 window is a great match to the original timber without the maintenance hassles. Our client was delighted with the installation and was full of compliments for our hardworking team.
