TIMBER SASH WINDOWS IN COUNTY DURHAM
This house occupies a commanding position atop a hill along the route of the old Roman road Dere Street, half-way between Durham and Hexham and close to Bishop Auckland.
The new owners of the house wanted a lighter, fresher look to the house and as part of the process, had decided to change the windows. What they had were dark-stained, hardwood casement windows, top-hung over fixed lights and they did nothing for the appearance of the property.
It was clear from looking at them that the original window reveals had been built for sliding sash windows and so that is what we put back in. The best option in this case was our Slimline Sash window as these offered the greatest width of glass and so would let in more natural light.
Rather than opt for white windows in a white-rendered house, our clients made the inspired choice of having us factory-paint the windows in Little Green Paint Co.'s Limestone 238. As you can see, this gives just enough colour without losing any of the fresh and bright appearance of the house.
These timber sash windows can be supplied in either engineered Redwood or hardwood and fully-finished in any colour or even different colours outside and inside.
