Rural Cottage Windows: choosing uPVC for your home
If you live in a rural area of Somerset and thinking about changing your cottage windows, you may be concerned about how new windows could affect the style of your cosy traditional property. However, there are so many benefits to modern uPVC windows that you could be missing out by not exploring your options.
You might be surprised to hear that many traditional cottage homes in rural Somerset are now fitted with modern uPVC windows. Not only are uPVC windows more durable than a traditional wooden frame, but at Majestic Designs we offer a number of styles and colour choices to suit a traditional home. This means that you can benefit from modern technology without having to worry about the aesthetic challenges of changing your windows.
uPVC Cottage Windows
At Majestic Designs, we can individually manufacture your windows in almost any shape, size, and style. Whether you live in a ‘chocolate box’ cottage with unusually shaped windows, or a striking barn conversion with extra large apertures to glaze; we can provide the perfect solution for you.
At our state-of-the-art Cheddar factories, we use the latest machinery to manufacture only the best quality uPVC windows. All our craftsmen have years of experience and are highly skilled at creating beautiful, high performing windows. We never sub-contract any work to ensure that all our installations remain of the same high quality. All of our lead installers are MTC registered, trained to the highest standard recognised by FENSA and employed by Majestic Designs.
Your Choice of Coloured Cottage Windows
When you’re replacing your windows, you want to choose the right colour to best suit your property. At Majestic Designs, our uPVC windows are available in 12 different colours. Whilst some people stick to traditional wood grain effect finishes, you may prefer to update their traditional home with a heritage coloured Chartwell Green or an Anthracite Grey.
Coloured windows are a great way to add personality to your home. In recent years, they have become an increasingly popular choice with homeowners across the UK. If you are fed up of having to maintain your timber frames, a woodgrain effect or coloured finish from Majestic Designs could be what you are looking for. uPVC is an incredibly easy material to maintain as it only needs to be wiped with a damp cloth from time to time.
At Majestic Designs, we also install leaded and Georgian windows featuring authentic astragal bars and replica wood grain finishes. These windows are perfect for period properties when you want to retain that Georgian grandeur.
Not Just Stylish
Although maintaining the style of your home may be at the forefront of your mind, the benefits that come with modern uPVC windows could improve your home.
Living rurally often means there is little shelter from the elements, especially if you live in an older home. Poor insulation in older homes can lead to heat loss through walls or window frames and often the wind doesn’t just bring a chill but you may find that it also whistles through the house.
Modern uPVC windows could combat some of the signs of heat loss and work to soundproof your home. Every window we install features a five chamber Duraflex profile with warm edge thermal spacer bars and argon gas sealed units. This helps them to achieve such high WER scores of A+14 as standard. They are BFRC (British Fenestration Rating Council) accredited for their excellent durability, energy efficiency, and weather resistance. All our uPVC windows are A+14 Window Energy Rated (WER) as standard. Not only will your home look great, it will also be warmer and more energy efficient.
With the frames guaranteed to withstand some of the most extreme weather conditions we experience in the UK, our uPVC windows make the perfect choice for a rural Somerset cottage, especially if you are located at the top of the Mendips.
Keeping You Safe
All our uPVC windows have excellent security credentials which make them resilient from any attempted break-in. With a multi-point locking system built into the frame, lockable handles, and internal beading to hold the glass in place, casement windows are protected from being opened or removed from the outside. This gives you a little extra peace of mind that you are protected at night or when you leave the house.
Majestic Designs can help you to upgrade your rural cottage windows and experience the benefits of modern British made technology and design.
