New windows for period country home

Located in the heart of the Nottingham countryside is Felley House, a period country home set in two acres of private land. 

Complete with an indoor pool room, five bedrooms and many additional reception rooms the property is more than striking – and boasts over 100 windows. So when replacement windows were required for the home it was no minor job. 

It was Paradise Windows in Nottingham that undertook the installation, electing to replace with PVC-U Rehau Total70 chamfered profiles in white. Z-section profiles were used in the manufacturing to facilitate fitting around the stone mullions present in certain windows at the home. 

Mark Millward, Managing Director at Paradise Windows, explained how the installation came about: “The owner of Felley House needed to replace the windows as part of a general refurbishment project, but as the property has so many windows and many are very different, we needed to test one in situ initially. 

“At first steel was specified for the windows but it was proving very expensive – I suggested PVC-U in order to reduce cost but to deliver equivalent results in terms of the profiles. 

“We installed a few windows using the Total70 profile to ensure the style suited the property. When the owner saw the profiles installed he was very happy, and we continued with the project over a number of weekends to fit in with wider refurbishment work taking place on site at the same time. 

“Overall the project was very straight forward, and the windows were easy to install. I’d only ever recommend Rehau for a project like this due to the quality and ease to work with. I have been installing Rehau profiles for 25 years and I trust the product to meet all the required standards and provide the correct solution to the specification.”

Following the successful installation at Felley House Paradise Windows have since been commissioned to work on further projects for the customer, demonstrating the establishment of a successful relationship.
