One of Enfield windows most recent installations was to a property in the Palmers Green area of north London. With it’s strict conservation rules and regulations, the client wanted to ensure the new windows would be exact replicas of the originals.
Based on a friends recommendation the client contacted Enfield Windows. After inspecting the quality and craftsmanship of our engineered timber windows we were asked to quote for the project.
On visiting the client we explained the benefits of our timber windows over the more conventional timber windows on the market. Each timber window we supply and install is made from a sustainable Maranti Hardwood. Each frame section and opener is made up of multi layered timbers cross grained and glued. This gives the frame extra strength that helps resist any warping and twisting.
Once the frame has been manufactured it goes into a spray booth where the process of adding various protective coats bases and finishes are applied. First is an Anti-Fungal protection coat that seals the bare wood, followed by numerous primer coats. The final finish coat is supplied by leading paint manufacturers Remmers. Their range of micro porous paint is the only paint finish which allows the timber to breathe and adjust to the conditions without cracking or peeling. The spraying process of our timber windows can take up to a week from first to final coat. This leaves a perfect, truly stunning factory finish every time.
Whilst taking the dimensions for the windows, we also offer our customers the option to supply a sample of architrave around 200mm to send to our manufacturers. This ensures a completely replicated finish.
The production time is generally around six to eight weeks during which time the installation is booked in ready to be installed within days of delivery. The installation itself was carried out over three days allowing enough time to carefully remove the old frames to minimize disruption internally and externally.
The finished result shows how Enfield Windows range of timber windows can enhance your home whilst retaining all of the original character.
