DOUBLE GLAZED SASH WINDOWS IN CORBRIDGE
Rare blue sky and sunshine shows off a really nice job in Corbridge in Northumberland, 15 miles due west of Newcastle. Corbridge is a lovely village and although this property had no planning restrictions on it, we wanted to ensure that whatever we installed looked totally in-keeping with the property. This meant minimising the visible timber to the sides of our sliding sash windows, keeping the timber glazing bars slim and factory finishing in a colour that would really complement the sandstone of the house. Our customer chose Gardenia and is delighted with the job and the finished appearance of the windows. By spray-painting prior to assembly and glazing we ensure that all of the areas of the windows that don't ever get seen are as well protected as those that are seen. Of course the big advantage of fitting timber double glazed windows and doors is that they can be finished in any colour you choose depending on the look you want to create.
These double glazed sash windows are an almost exact match for the old wooden sashes that came out but with a huge 70% reduction in the amount of heat lost through the window. What comes as a surprise to many people is the added advantage of noise reduction, which is nearly 30dB even before looking at special noise-reducing glass combinations.
