Rehau installer Quality Trade Windows has transformed the energy performance of a historic residential property in East Kilbride, Glasgow, while retaining its original gothic styling. 

the company was contacted regarding replacing 11 windows in a Victorian property where the original single glazing was causing the home to lose a significant amount of heat.

All 11 windows were replaced with Rehau’s Heritage Vertical Sliding window system. The finished product was designed in white woodgrain with Georgian bar arches with run-through sash horns.

The company’s Stuart Carlin said: “The job in East Kilbride was a tall order because of its unique gothic design requirements. Aside from aesthetics, there were other priorities to take into consideration including energy performance, security, dimensions and other window features..”

Samsara McDonald, Commercial Sales Manager at Rehau’s Windows Division, said: “When Quality Trade Windows briefed us on the East Kilbride period property, we knew the exact product for the job. It’s not often that we get the chance to work with gothic buildings, but we were able to meet all requirements with the Heritage Vertical Sliding system.

“True collaboration with Quality Trade Windows ensured the project was finished on time and within budget, leaving the client to enjoy the windows in all their glory. Now they have better heat retention, higher energy efficiency, improved security, and all while preserving the original gothic features of the building’s exterior.”
