TIMBER WINDOWS CUMBRIA
Blackthorn Timber Windows supply and install timber windows within the Cumbria area, and we offer the most comprehensive range of wooden windows in quality softwood or hardwood.
We provide a wealth of information on our website about timber windows, but we'd be happy to visit your home or arrange a call-back.
We have a no pressure approach to meeting our customers and we always send written quotations following a visit. We understand that these projects sometimes take a while to get off the ground and we know that our customers don't want to be hassled so we simply send the quotation and wait. Some customers come back within a week, others take a month or even a year and that's fine.
Below you'll find a selection of work we have undertaken in the Cumbria area, supplying and fitting timber windows.
Norman Arch Glazing Bar detail, Cumbria
Located near to an ancient abbey, this house reflects the surroundings with a fine timber glazing bar detail. In this case id is applied to Flush Casement windows but can equally work on Stormproof Casements and Sliding Sash windows.
Traditional Box Sash Windows in Cumbria
The small villages nestling between Carlisle and the Pennines in the north-east of Cumbria contain a wide range of architectural styles and ages. This installation of box sash windows was at a really nice house in just such a village, commanding spectacular views of the Lake District fells in the distance.
The old sash windows were draughty, impossible to open and prone to excessive condensation throughout the winter. This, in-turn was making them mouldy on the lower timber rails.
Some of the windows were absolutely fine and these have been left in place but most of the ground floor and half of the upstairs sash windows were changed. We installed our traditional sash windows complete with brass pulleys and lead weights to re-create the full character of windows in a property that has always been rather grand.
