Everything You Need to Know About Residence 9 Windows

A Comprehensive Guide To Residence 9 Windows

There will most likely be a number of you reading this that, up until this point, have not paid particular attention to the type of windows that your home currently possesses. If you do not have a vested interest in exterior design and home improvements, this is understandable. That being said, if you are looking to replace your sash windows with models that offer a distinctive upgrade, it is imperative that, at the very least, you take a moment to learn about Residence 9 windows. These are one of the flagship products that we offer here at Premier Windows, and therefore we are pleased to shed some light on their incredible features.

A Quick Introduction

In case you have not come face-to-face with Residence 9 windows in the past, allow us to provide you with a little context regarding how these came into existence. In short, these were thought up by designers that loved the aesthetic appeal of traditional timber sash windows but wanted to drastically improve their insulating capabilities. It was from this concept that Residence 9 began to take shape.


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 window?

There tend to be three main benefits of choosing Residence 9 windows:

Low maintenance

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. 


Energy efficient

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. 


Timber Comparison

Contrary to popular belief, Residence 9 windows are excellent when it comes to visually mimicking the timber windows that you would usually find in listed buildings. Unfortunately, these older products are poor when it comes to energy ratings, and this can be a costly affair as time goes by. Residence 9 windows are, for the most part, double-glazed units, meaning that they can retain thermal energy incredibly well. When you combine this with top-tier visuals, you are left with a product that is highly desirable from all angles.


French Doors

If you are intrigued by the prospect of using Residence 9 technology but feel as if your current windows are more-than-capable of functioning to the highest order, you may be interested to learn of a recent innovation involving French Doors. These can be placed at the rear of your property and can allow you to finally fulfil your dream of having a seamless transition from your home to your garden. Though these products are fairly new to the market, they have quickly become a hot-seller. 


How Do They Fare Versus Timber?

Whilst it is certainly true that the primary reason behind people opting for timber windows is their fantastic appearance, there is a drawback which cannot be ignored – namely, the level of maintenance that is required for them. In direct contrast to this, Residence 9 windows are incredibly easy to clean, and simply require a wipe-down every once in a while to ensure that they remain pristine. The uPVC, which acts as the predominant material, will not require any paint or varnishing during their lifespan; this will make your life considerably easier.


Can The Tech Be Used Elsewhere?

 A little-known fact is that Residence 9 technology can be utilised within both windows and doors. Case-and-point, in recent years there has been a line of French Doors that are created using the unique uPVC finish that can be found within their window counterparts. The high-quality nature of these products make them the perfect solution for anyone that is looking for a picture-perfect exit to the garden. This type of patio door will ensure that your home will be the envy of all those that have the opportunity to see the rear of your property.
