Monday we were working in Canterbury replacing some old original box sash windows. It was important to install a window in this period property to match the old ones.
The Rehau Heritage window is quiet difficult to tell the difference between the old window and new. With the added bonus of better security, double glazed A rated units to help with heat loss and noise reduction.And low maintenance with no more painting.
We even used a classic archetrave on the inside to help make the internal surround more original looking.
The job took a day to complete and these were the last two remaining windows left to install as we had previously replaced all the other windows last year.
This bay window was replaced with Victorian style sash windows. The bay widow had been previously replaced with UPVC casement windows which did not suit the property very well and were poorly fitted.

Although the property is in a conservation area in Hernebay which falls under article 4 this only applies to the windows on the front of the house. Now these window has been fitted the owners are keen to have the rest of their windows replaced once planning permission has been granted.
This is the third property we have fitted these type of windows in this street.
These windows were fitted just before Christmas in Herne bay but the scaffolding has only recently come down. The windows had to go through local planning as they are in a conservation area under article four. This took about three months before it was granted. The windows had been changed about twenty years ago and were not in keeping with the original style. This UPVC Victorian style windows are an exact replica of the original windows and look so much better with the added benefit of low maintenance and double glazing. These windows are A rated which will help to keep more heat in and help to reduce any condensation.
