Sussex-based Nuglaze Home Services recently completed a replacement window and door project with Residence 9, in a period home with true Tudor detailing, including leaded top lights, structural corner posts and two oriel bay windows, all in the No.10 Black finish.
In years gone by such installations were the domain of timber only and it is only with the introduction of R9, part of The Residence Collection, that this traditional material has been challenged. R9 remains the only true timber casement alternative window as this project shows, claims the company, and all the windows, doors and ancillaries were supplied by locally based manufacturer, Tradesmith.
The unique corner property featured two oriel bay windows, an upstairs balcony and door and other unique glazing features, which had to be completely sympathetic to the fabric of the building. Authentic butt joints, the use of black monkey tail handles and peg stays, also added to the period nature of this unique property.
Sarah Hitchings, sales and marketing director of The Residence Collection commented: ‘This unique Tudor type property is the perfect showcase for R9, with the dual colour option of No.10 Black and Grained White featured throughout. It also proves that we are more than a credible alternative to timber, yet with the longevity, green credentials, and energy efficiency properties of PVCu.
