Nostalgia added to new build

Rehau products installed at a new residential home The Cedar Views, on the south-western fringes of Woking, had to be in-keeping with the nearby The Strawberry Tree, a popular period property in the area.

This included the windows, which needed to provide period aesthetic appeal while providing the convenience and quality of new, modern products.

Mark Wright, owner at MA Wright the main contractors on the project, said: “I’ve known Rehau for a long time now and have been using their windows for decades. The products are of a very good quality and are always a pleasure to install. Also, in terms of budgetary requirements, these windows are a really great choice and provides another reason to choose this style.”

The Rehau heritage vertical sash window profile used on this project has been developed following extensive consultation with conservation bodies and housing associations.

Traditional design details and sightlines of a timber box sash window, with all the benefits of PVCU make this system the ideal replacement sash window, the company said.

Chris Whiteman, architect at BBF Fielding who was commissioned for the project, said: “I have the same Rehau windows installed at my own Victorian property. The heritage range is an excellent replacement for the original timber sliding sashes. The frames are elegant and narrow, just like the originals, but they are thermally efficient and low maintenance. When our client was looking for suitable windows, which would complement the period style of the property, I did not hesitate to recommend the Rehau heritage sliding sash windows.”
