What are Residence 9 windows?
Simply put, Residence 9 is a new window system which has been specifically designed to replicate the 19th Century flush sash timber windows that you tend to find in cottages and heritage properties up and down the country. These new windows are perfect if you’re looking to upgrade your classic windows but you still want them to look authentic and you don’t want to lose any character appearance.
How are these windows made?
These windows are made to meet key design principles, shapes and dimensions from the Article 4 Conservation Area guidelines, but they also integrate industry-leading technology to ensure that they overcome any issues homeowners may have with their current windows. When creating Residence 9 windows, every aspect was considered, from glass bonding and chamber design to lock and hinge retention.
Residence 9 windows can be manufactured in numerous sizes and styles to replicate the original windows on your property. They have ornate detailing on the inside yet they sit flush to the outside. You can choose between different hardware for your windows too so, you can ensure that all of the finer details like the handles and peg stays are perfect. Georgian Bar latticework to the glass can even be replicated if requested.
Why choose this type of windows?
There tend to be three main benefits of choosing Residence 9 windows;
One of the main reasons why people turn to Residence 9 windows is because they are virtually maintenance-free. If you have had classic old timber windows for a long time then you will know how hard it can be to keep them looking good. Thankfully, Residence 9 is manufactured from a composite material which gives them the traditional look of timber but you don’t have hassle of wood. Residence 9 windows won’t ever warp, swell, flake or need sanding and painting.
Another reason why people choose Residence 9 is because they are incredibly energy-efficient windows. They can accommodate both double and triple glazing so you can benefit from the market-leading thermal and acoustic performance. Usually, you can expect windows to have 3, 5 or sometimes 6 chambers, in high quality windows but, these windows have 9 chambers. This gives them one of the best energy ratings on the market for windows of this kind.
Lastly, many people opt for these windows because of the level of security they offer, especially when compared to classic timber windows. They feature the latest security technology and are specifically designed with safety in mind. Unlike your old windows, Residence 9 windows make it almost impossible for intruders to gain unauthorised access through them. You can rest assured knowing that you and your family are safe.
