Award-winning timber Conservation™ windows and doors by Mumford & Wood have been specified by Wide Sky Architects in the refurbishment of a 1930’s Arts and Craft property in Buckinghamshire which is typical of the local vernacular.

When purchased two years ago the property was tired, dated and badly in need of total transformation both inside and out but now it is truly a ‘des res’.

The property has been completely remodelled: the footprint of the original building retained with the benefit of two and three storey extensions made to either side giving a total area of 420m².

Windows and doors were in a poor condition, a mix of rotting timber and inappropriate, ill-fitting plastic. All were replaced with high performance, double glazed Conservation™ products which not only made an immediate improvement to the aesthetics of the property but totally changed the interior ambiance with style, light, warmth and comfort.

Lee Kirby, director at contractors KD-B Developments Limited, said "These windows will last a lifetime. Not only do they look great but together with all the other high specification materials and systems we have incorporated into the build this house will exceed even todays’ standards of performance and sustainability.”
