Seaside period refurbishment
The extensive and sympathetic refurbishment of a 260-year old coastal property required a sensitive approach. The windows have a large role to play in this house, many of them providing beautiful views.
Conservation™ box sash windows were specified to provide authentic aesthetics combined with 21st century thermal performance.
Manufactured entirely in Great Britain, Conservation™ windows and doors are made from clear grade and engineered Siberian Larch, a slow growing and robust species, which achieves maximum strength and stability in fine joinery. Made to the exacting standards of the British Woodworking Federation’s Wood Window Alliance scheme, Conservation™ windows and doors are BRE A+ rated and achieve excellent levels of acoustic and thermal performance that exceed the requirement of current Building Regulations.
“Had the windows been wrong in any way we could easily have spoilt this rather handsome building. The transition from old to new had to be totally authentic and we relied heavily on the technical advice Mumford & Wood gave us. This is clearly where they have great experience. We had long discussions about how the product could be adapted to overcome complex problems with the surrounding brickwork. Mumford & Wood found a way.” Homeowner
