More than 30 Residence 9 windows, French doors and a Solidor stable door helped to retain the traditional look of a period property in Buckinghamshire installed by Bahama Windows and Conservatories.

Bahama owner Paul Pixley explained: “The new windows had to be in keeping with the area and like-for-like with the old wooden frames. Because Residence 9 frames replicate the traditional look of timber, choosing this system meant the homeowner could get a close match to the original windows, coupled with the modern benefits and low maintenance nature of uPVC.”

The homeowner chose Clotted Cream in and out and selected Monkey Tail handles for an authentic finish on the hardware.

The R9 install from Bahama Windows took place last autumn shortly after Glazerite introduced Timberweld technology to the fabrication of its Residence 9 and Residence 7 products. Timberweld allows for greater efficiency in manufacturing and eases frame transportation for the customer as windows can be ordered unglazed, therefore removing the additional weight of bonded glass. 

Bahama Windows, which has been established for 50 years, has worked with Glazerite for over a decade and regularly installs Veka, Halo and Residence Collection windows. Now Paul is looking ahead to more R9 installs this year, having seen a recent increase in requests for flush sash windows across his patch. 

Glazerite sales and marketing director Jeff Dunn added: “Manufacturing R9 with Timberweld opens this premium product up to more of our installer base as a result of easier transportation and handling, without losing any of its authenticity. We’ve already seen a number of our installers begin to specify the system as a result of this and look forward to the opportunities it can bring to their businesses.”
