Swedish composite windows for three storey period cottage in Suffolk

Westcoast Windows design high performance composite windows, manufactured in Sweden following the principles of functional, yet elegant design, energy efficiency and exceptional durability. Our windows have a unique bonded aluminium and timber construction, offering a low maintenance exterior and warm wood interior.

We were pleased to supply and fit our composite windows to a characterful three storey cottage in South Suffolk.  The previous traditional wooden sash windows were beginning to deteriorate, looking tired and had limited energy efficiency. They also required regular painting to keep them looking good – not a a quick or easy job with a three storey property.

The customer was concerned about new windows affecting the character of the cottage and wanted to retain some of the existing styling. We specified our double-glazed Classic Series in a combination of SSG90 Side Hung Projecting Window and TSG180 Top Hung Reversible Window, with glazing bars to replicate the style of the original windows. We also created shaped timber plants to some of the window heads, with scribed in pressings where the brickwork is curved, to further imitate the original period look.

With concerns that a bright classic white finish would look too stark on the traditional building, the customer selected a more subtle off white (RAL 9002 grey/white) which lends a softer, heritage feel and looks stylish on the low maintenance aluminium exterior. (Take a look at the finishes available on our HOMEOWNER GUIDANCE page – select the APPEARANCE tab)

The new windows brighten the exterior of the house while remaining true to the traditional style, and also provide peace of mind for the customer with our 10 year guarantee and many happy years not painting windows!
