We are always delighted to work with our clients to improve the appearance and value of their properties and this particular commission was especially gratifying. Set within a leafy cul-de-sac on the outskirts of Haywards Heath this attractive, tile hung detached property had been well maintained by previous owners but the replacement white upvc windows and doors with false glazing bars were creating a busy and cluttered overall appearance to the exterior of the property.

Working closely with the current owners, it was agreed that the appearance of the windows and doors needed to be upgraded to timber and the new design should be more streamlined and simplified. The joinery would be manufactured in utile hardwood for longevity and the thermal values of the double glazed units would be improved to meet with current Building Regulations. It was agreed that the glazing bars should be removed and that the windows should be replaced with simple flush casement windows with mullions and no fanlights. The triple windows either side of the front door were constructed with a floating mullion so that they could be opened fully for added ventilation on the ground floor and to open up the interior to the garden beyond.
