Timber sash and casement windows
Enfield windows recently undertook a project in the Finsbury Park area of London.
The client was refurbishing a large town house which also required new timber windows. After visiting our website they arranged a visit to our showroom. There, we discussed the various options available and the numerous benefits our hardwood window range offer.
After the plans for the project were sent to us, we were able to form an accurate and competitive proposal. The project consisted of thirteen timber sash windows, one timber casement window and French doors in RAL colour 9001. (An attractive cream)
With every timber project we undertake, liaising with our manufacturing partners is a key part of our success, every detail is planned and accurately executed. We offer clients the option of taking a small section of architrave from the original windows in the property to use for a near perfect match when producing the new factory finished trims. Often the window architraves will match with the existing internal door frames.
The character of a property and its heart often lies in the original door and window frames so keeping them accurately replicated is part of the attraction when using timber. With the added benefits of energy efficiency, safety and security, timber windows are becoming more and more popular around the London area.
After our proposal was agreed, Enfield windows completed a detailed contract and a survey was booked. We made templates for all of the three front arched windows and sent these to our manufacturers. This ensures a perfectly accurate fit.
During the surveying process we often take various key photographs and specific details to create a file that contains all the information we need. This ensures every department within the company from ordering, manufacturing and installations are fully informed at every stage.
The installation was scheduled over six days with four installers on site to help. Having a large team of installers helps when some of the larger windows weighed in excess of 150kg.
As the pictures show, the new timber sash windows add a large part of the character to the now fully restored property. The clients were thrilled with their new timber windows and also commented on the additional warmth in every room and reduction in outside noise the new double glazed windows offer.
