A flush fit first

A Norfolk couple are the first people to have Rehau’s Rio flush fit windows installed in their home, fabricated by Climatec and installed by Tim Whipps Windows.

Mr and Mrs Farrell were originally looking to replace their old externally beaded PVCU windows with a like-for-like replacement. However, after looking at the options for the standard casement windows, both Tim and the Farrells’ decided that actually this was not the best option.

Tim Whipps, who exclusively installs Rehau window products due to their ease of installation and high quality, took the couple through the new range of Rehau Rio flush fit windows, as showcased in his Climatec brochure, which they agreed suited their property style better.

The Rio flush fit window has a realistic timber look and feel that blends in with the exterior structure. It also offers the added benefits of durability, security, and energy efficiency of a PVCU window.

There were 12 windows to install, all pearl grey on white, and took approximately four to five weeks from the initial conversation to installation. Tim used the fully welded jointing option, although Climatec also offers a mechanical joint and an external timber look (ETL) weld option.

“It’s just like any other Rehau casement window installation I’ve done,” Tim said. “I was very impressed.”

John Banks, product manager at Climatec, said: “Tim isn’t the first installer to praise the new Rio window and how it makes their lives easier by being based on the Total 70 profile. It’s well known to be installer friendly and our customers have shown an encouraging interest in Rio.”

Mr Farrell said: “It’s the best decision we’ve ever made; the windows look really good and, more importantly, expensive. They’ve added huge value to our home in so many ways.”
