Mr and Mrs Smith own a beautiful property in the Derbyshire countryside. When they wanted to renovate the old hall they found it difficult to find a suitable supplier for the internal and external joinery.
Because the property is a listed building there were certain demands from the local authority conservation officer. In a nutshell, the new windows and doors
Of course, the Smith’s only wanted windows and doors that matched the charm and traditional appeal of their home. But it’s cold up in the Derbyshire Peaks, so they also wanted modern day perfomance.
Fortunately, after months of fruitless searching, the Smiths came across Gowercroft. They quickly realised the our range of heritage windows and doors were exactly what they were looking for. They looked the part, and they performed spectacularly.
Naturally the Conservation officer needed to be assured that the installation would be in keeping with the regulations. We helped the Smiths prove that our slimline double glazed units were more than acceptable.
Aesthetically, they have the appearance of a traditional single glazed window. However, the slim double glazing and polymer putty ensure that the units are soundproof and have excellent heat retention. These qualities make them the ideal choice for conservation projects.
We also designed, manufactured and fitted the doors on Old Longmoor Hall. Again, we were making sure they fitted in perfectly with the existing installations but still offered modern day performance.
All of the installation was built from Accoya – a modern hardwood with excellent structural strength. Our Accoya is from fully sustainable sources. It also is very hard wearing and will offer years of maintenance free service.
Our workshop in Alfreton has a meticulous design and build process that ensure the longevity of our windows and doors. From concept to construction and in the painting process, our tried and tested methods offer many years of service with the minimum of attention. We can also offer our own maintenance service and guarantee – see our pages on TimbaCare here.
