An eye-catching residential home, ‘The Cedar Views’, that has been built on the south-western fringes of Woking, features REHAU windows.
Because of its proximity to Strawberry Tree, a popular period property in the area, it was a requirement that products installed at The Cedar Views would be in-keeping with the nearby property’s traditional features.
This included the windows, which needed to provide period aesthetic appeal while also providing the convenience and quality of new, modern products. REHAU was on hand to offer such a solution.
Mark Wright, owner at MA Wright, the main contractors on the project, commented: “I’ve known REHAU for a long time now and have been using their windows for decades. The products are of a very good quality and are always a pleasure to install.
“Also, in terms of budgetary requirements, these windows are a really great choice and provides another reason to choose this style.”
The REHAU Heritage Vertical sash window profile used on this project has been developed following extensive consultation with conservation bodies and housing associations.
What makes this product truly stand out is its ability to allow period window features to be preserved, while having the long-lasting reliability of PVC-U windows.
Traditional design details and sightlines of a timber box sash window, with all the benefits of PVC-U make this system the ideal replacement sash window.
Chris Whiteman, Architect at BBF Fielding who were commissioned for the project, commented: “I have the same REHAU windows installed at my own Victorian property. The heritage range is an excellent replacement for the original timber sliding sashes.
“The frames are elegant and narrow, just like the originals, but they are thermally efficient and low maintenance.
“When our client was looking for suitable windows, which would complement the period style of the property, I did not hesitate to recommend the REHAU Heritage sliding sash windows.
“We looked at various manufacturers but none of them came even close to the REHAU product in terms of aesthetics.”
The neighbouring period property’s owners were very impressed at the quality and finish of the windows, which complemented the traditional look of the property, while offering an excellent standard of performance.
Saqib Butt, owner of The Strawberry Tree, commented: “We were amazed by how REHAU’s windows were so in keeping with what we were after.
“They have met and exceeded all of our requirements and are performing exceptionally well, especially in terms of its thermal efficiency.”
