Finding the right windows to suit heritage properties in the countryside can be a difficult task. At Mendip we have a range of windows designed to suit every type of property, style and budget. We decided to investigate the best window options for homes trying to create a traditional, vintage look. Here’s our recommendations:
Timber sash windows: authentic aesthetic, modern technology
Timber sash windows are great at creating that authentic, ‘traditional’ look to a property. Their traditional style makes them perfect for homes in conservation areas, or for homeowners wanting to create the traditional look of real timber windows. Available in a variety of wood-grain finishes, these windows are manufactured using traditional joinery techniques to ensure that they achieve the highest levels of quality and authenticity.
Technology has come a long way since the sash windows of a hundred years ago. New timber sash windows can boast amazing thermal efficiency values, making them brilliant at improving the energy efficiency of your home and saving you money on your fuel bills.
Residence 9: timber-effect windows for heritage properties
Designed to look exactly like traditional 19th century flush sash timber windows, Residence 9 timber effect windows are a clever way of creating the authentic look of timber windows, for less.
Residence 9 windows look exactly like timber, but do not require the time and effort that has to be spent maintaining timber windows. These windows are created from high quality uPVC: the easy-to-manage and cost-effective alternative to timber. Residence 9 windows are so authentic looking, that we can even install them within conservation areas.
A range of heritage colours and hardware
All of our windows can come in a range of heritage RAL colours: from popular Chartwell Greens to various greys and oaks. These colours are great at recreating that classic vintage style that many homeowners strive for in their properties. Combine this with heritage hardware, such as iron fastenings and brass handles and you can create a window that blends seamlessly in with any heritage property.
