Replacement timber windows create an impact

Mr & Mrs B live in a well maintained Georgian semi in Whalley Range Manchester.

The original timber windows which, after over 100 years’ service, were in need of replacement. They contacted Bayfield Timber and asked us to provide a quote.

We visited their home on a `no obligation` basis and advised they visited our showroom in Altrincham to view the quality of the timber windows we were proposing to install. Having viewed the range of replacement timber windows available, Mr and Mrs B decided to place their order with Bayfield Timber

The windows they selected were laminated, engineered softwood produced by Westport Ltd in Maryport, Cumbria. In our opinion, West port is the finest factory joinery in the UK.

The windows were from the Westport System X range. The casement windows were factory glazed and fully finished in the RAL colour of the client’s choice.

The West Port System X Window is a high performance, top & side hung fully reversible window allowing six different window operations. This style of window complies with the latest building regulations for fire escape & thermal performance and has many benefits including;

  • Concealed hinges
  • Built-in child proof restrictors
  • Tested to BS7950. Enhanced Security
  • Outstanding foul weather performance to BS6375 parts 1 and 2

The Windows are guaranteed for 8 years against the paint and 30 years against the Timber.

In addition to replacing the windows, Mr & Mrs B were keen to restore and keep the leaded and coloured glass. Bayfield Timber removed the glass from the existing windows and temporarily glazed them. We then cleaned, restored and encapsulated the glass between the 2 outer glass pieces. The new windows arrived with the original glass already fitted. A detailed survey was completed to ensure the windows would fit well when placed in their original position behind the brickwork.

Mr and Mrs B also chose new architraves from our standard range which complete the finished look of the windows in the traditional and the most attractive manner.

Around 6 weeks after the receipt of the signed order, confirmation and terms of trade, they were delivered.

The installation process was organised to suit Mr and Mrs B and took around a week.
Mr and Mrs B decided to add to their order.

Mr and Mrs B were very pleased with Bayfield Timbers work and added a new timber outer door to their order.

As the first installation was nearing completion they also decided to replace some Velux roof lights and added some bi-folding doors to their order. This resulted in the original contract more than doubling in value and encompassing a wide range of product.

Proof that a job well done can pay huge dividends in the form of repeat orders!! Most of our customers have previously ordered from us or have been recommended by friends and family.
