Project requirements

The homeowners wanted to maximise light throughout the house, which meant windows and doors with generous proportions and double and triple aspect rooms. The new-build property follows a classic, traditional design suited to the surrounding architecture and required a sympathetic design of fenestration.



Solution

A coordinated collection of double glazed Conservation™ products have been incorporated, including casement windows; full and part-glazed French doorsets; stunning four-leaf, non-bar, bi-folding doors that truly link the house and garden; a traditional and beautifully crafted solid timber entrance door with a part-glazed inner porch door for extra warmth and security. A large fixed pane unit consisting of six glazed panels to the rear of the property opens up the picture-perfect stair well, landing and hall which is now flooded with natural light.



Benefits

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.



Client Feedback

“Planning and designing these windows and doors was part of the pleasure of shopping locally with Mumford & Wood. We visited the Tiptree showroom several times before and during the two-year build and we benefited greatly from the technical advice we received. It was invaluable and it helped us to make many design decisions. Site meetings and aftercare were first class, from start to end. In direct comparison to the old bungalow, we can definitely appreciate the improved levels of sound and insulation which are excellent and the windows enhance our views even more.” Homeowner
