There’s nothing quite like good quality windows to give your house that special “kerb appeal.”
In our latest timber window installation in Leytonstone, North London our client wanted to get rid of all the old aluminium windows in his property and replace them with original-looking timber sash windows.
After being contacted through our website we arranged an initial sales meeting to meet the client and go through all the items required and the exact specifics for the project.
Our quotation was to replace all the windows with hardwood sliding sash windows, with the frames painted in two different colours – “RAL 7016 Anthracite Grey” on the outside and white on the inside.
Quick Sales Meeting
The sales meeting took no longer than 45 minutes, during which our helpful and experienced sales rep took all the necessary measurements to provide an accurate and detailed quotation. Within 24 hours the quotation was emailed over to the client, itemising each room with its specification and the cost to supply and install.
Our timber products are of the very highest quality and are manufactured using the latest in CNC machinery and temperature controlled spray booths to create a perfect build and multiple layers of micro-porous paint finish every time. The glazing consists of a 4mm glass pane, 16mm warm edge spacer bar and a further 4mm glass pane, giving an overall thickness of 24mm. All our glazing is Argon filled, ensuring a low UV value of only 1.1.
Full site survey
After the sales contract and final order details were confirmed, we carried out a full site survey and made a series of test holes in the existing frame to ensure that the dimensions were accurate and that the new windows would be in proportion and a snug fit.
The lead time for all our timber windows and doors is six to eight weeks from our survey, although the dual colour requirements on this particular project stretched the lead time to 10 weeks. This was because each frame had to be meticulously taped during the paint process to produce a perfectly finished dual coloured window.
After six weeks we were notified of the confirmed delivery date then the installation was booked in, with a completion time of three to four days. Our experienced fitting teams are highly skilled in the replacement of timber windows and doors and, as shown on all our blogs, the end result of a flawless installation is a superior finished product.
And it obviously did have the desired “kerb appeal” as we have since been instructed to replace old window frames with new timber sash at a neighbour’s house just down the road!
