Buckinghamshire is a county noted for its character and period properties, many of which feature sash windows as one of their finest attributes. But sash windows are high maintenance and whilst beautiful and elegant, not known for their draught-proofing abilities and superior thermal regulation.
Chameleon offers a remarkable new slim double glazing system, Fineo, for the sash windows on period and character homes throughout the villages and towns of Buckinghamshire. It can be retrofitted into existing timber sashes without any alterations.
Savour modern comforts by fitting Fineo glass to your classic sash windows without changing either their structure or appearance. Fineo glass is lightweight and very thin – a mere 6.7mm in thickness – ideal for the old-fashioned narrow rebate of sash windows. Fineo glass has the same thermal properties as standard triple glazing.
Fineo double glazing for sash windows is successfully installed on countless properties in Buckinghamshire and so many households are already enjoying the luxury of a warmer home with a constant temperature throughout the rooms and much lower energy bills. Chameleon can make any necessary adjustments to the windows when the glass is fitted without disturbing the frames or interfering with the balance of the weights and pulleys system.
If your windows are in need of a little care and attention then we can refurbish them with the use of Accoya and Tricoya timbers, giving the timber decades of weatherproofing and rot resistance something simply not possible with more traditional hard and soft woods. Refurbish your classic sash windows with products which preserve and enhance them, the chance to have the best of both worlds, a period home with energy-efficient windows yet without departing from the original wooden casements which are such a hallmark of the house.
Draught proofing the sash windows on your Buckinghamshire home will reduce heat loss so as well as enhancing the comfort of your home, your pocket will benefit as well from lower energy costs.
