The owners of an 18th Century farmhouse faced a dilemma when its solid walls gave it an E Energy Rating but also meant of course that they could not have cavity wall insulation.

Instead, Mr and Mrs Wells looked to replacing the draughty, old timber windows with triple glazed flush casements from Sternfenster’s Deceuninck range, installed by the fabricator’s retail partner Starglaze.

“With the age of the house being 18th Century, we really wanted a style that would be a nod to its heritage, whilst also offering a modern twist, and for us, white flush casements did that,” Mr Wells said.

“We have some old pictures of the farmhouse when it had wooden single pane windows, and the appearance is very similar to the flush casement we have now, which is really nice. And we went for white as it’s just timeless, and blends in nicely with the other houses in this area.

Mrs Wells added: “The farmer next door had actually just had Starglaze out to do all of their windows, so they recommended Starglaze to me as they were so impressed by them.

Sternfenster’s Deceuninck range of flush casement windows are manufactured using Graf Weld technology and have an A WER rating and u-values as low as 1.2 W/m2K.
