Halo FlushSash proves its worth with self confessed timber installer

Tags: Windows, Halo   |   Added:

Specialist barn and farm buildings renovator Cheshire Barns Homes is committed to using traditional materials in keeping with the projects they typically undertake... but it seems Halo FlushSash has turned their head.

The developer has a strong commitment to producing homes using traditional farm buildings that are energy efficient, a philosophy that is underpinned by the company’s founder and director, Rhys Nevett, who has a vision to restore buildings with heritage to create sustainable luxury, and a desire for absolute perfection.

The traditional style of the properties they renovate must be considered against the requirements of the Building Regulations and desire of the new owners for modern comfort and performance, a balance that can be difficult to achieve. But for one recent project undertaken by Cheshire Barns Homes such potential conflicts were resolved when the firm chose Halo FlushSash PVC-U windows, for a semi-detached property located in a rural location.

Nottingham-based Fearns of Carlton were chosen by the developer to supply eight Halo FlashSash windows produced in Balsalt Grey on white, after being impressed with the authentic appearance of the frames combined with the exceptional performance. The colour was selected from a range of 29 foils available on this highly popular traditionally styled window, with the frames manufactured by Glazerite UK Group at the company’s Peterborough factory.

Rhys Nevett of Cheshire Barns Homes is committed to maintaining the traditional appearance of the properties he renovates and was impressed with the Halo FlushSash windows chosen for this project: “We are usually committed to genuine timber windows but when we saw the Halo window and learned of the energy efficiency that they brought to the project, we had no hesitation in specifying them. They provide an impressive authentic appearance that is in keeping with this project.”

For the window supplier Fearns of Carlton Jak Fearn said: “Many of the projects I work on are with timber sash windows as they are listed buildings. Fortunately as this project wasn’t listed so it gave the developer and us the opportunity to specify the Halo FlushSash. It not only looks great but offers an “A” rating which is fantastic for a traditional property.”

Chris Thompson of Glazerite was delighted: “There is nothing I love more than to get a timber window installer onto PVC-U.  We have also had a number of installations approved and passed by building control in conservation and listed buildings so even if a property is in such an area the installation of windows manufactured in modern materials should not be ruled out.”

A homecoming for Brodie - Thanks to Complete Aluminium and Glazerite
It was enough of a blow when a young Hampshire couple discovered their new-born son was severely disabled and would need 24/7 professional care. But it came as a second shock to hear he could not be allowed home from hospital because their house was not big enough to accommodate the nursing facility.  Strict rules meant he and his nurse would need separate bedrooms. But their part-owned local authority home had only two bedrooms for parents Paul Boyd and Rebecca Jones and older daughter Megan, 6, and a conventional extension would not be allowed.  The answer came from local installer Complete Aluminium Systems and The Glazerite UK Group who came up with a clever conservatory solution that would allow Brodie to live with his family after all.  A simple knock-through from the existing kitchen means the new 4m x 3m PVC-U conservatory is now the family's living space, so the original living room is now Brodie's bedroom, with a stud wall to create a hallway through to the kitchen. The team also enlisted help from other local companies, Legacy Developments, Ark Designs, Oli James Plumbing and Heating, Safeglaze Ltd, Ceramic Tile Warehouse and Park Street Interiors for other work necessary for the project. With the project now completed and Brodie home, the family could not be happier with the outcome and wrote to say: "We have been blown away by people's kindness and without it, it is likely Brodie would still be in hospital. As it stands our little family is all back together adapting to our new normal. None of which would have been possible without all your help." Greig Hayes of Complete Aluminium Systems said: "It was a rewarding experience to be able to help this family but we could not have done it without the support of Glazerite, as well as Safeglaze and the other local contractors." Glazerite Director Jason Thompson added: "This is one of those cases where a little lateral thinking could make a world of difference to a family's future. We were very glad to have been a part of it."
