Conservation Area Window Replacement

If you live in a conservation area, what are the best windows for you? Homes in these areas often have strict rules for new installations. Because the property is usually a classic home or is surrounded by them, you will want to retain the area’s distinctive and authentic style. As a result, options such as uPVC and aluminium windows would go against this.

One option that suits conservation area homes is timber windows. Wooden windows are a timeless design, offering authentic quality that is perfectly in tune with traditional homes. You may have heard that some outdated timber profiles have a reputation for struggling over time and requiring regular upkeep and expenses.  This is not the case with Dempsey Dyer timber windows.

We believe every home in a conservation area should benefit from high-quality windows. As a result, we supply market-leading timber windows that will enhance any home. Our designs are more resilient, long-lasting, and can even save energy inside your space. Because of this, you can preserve a property’s highly sought after conservation style while transforming its performance.

Rules for Conservation Area Windows

Firstly, you’ll need to know the rules for conservation area windows to figure out what you can install. If you live in one of these areas, it can be tricky to find windows that meet the standards of conservation areas. Often, they’ll stick out against your home or others, detracting from the area’s overall cohesive style.

Under legislation introduced in 1995, local authorities can make further restrictions as well. Known as Article 4 Directions, these rules make finding replacement windows for a conservation area even tougher. Your local authority may judge the glazing bars, rails, sashes, and so much more. Even the smallest detail in your window can make the biggest difference.

We work with timber windows that uphold conservation area rules. Because of this, you’re far more likely to get the approval of authorities for your installation. Not only that, you won’t have to compromise on the design of your window. You’ll still get high-quality timber and double glazing, all with authentic style.

Timber Conservation Area Windows

Because of the rules, timber conservation area windows are usually the best option. But that isn’t the only thing that makes modern timber windows attractive. Wooden windows are still the most attractive product on the market today, as they have a look that other windows can’t match. While uPVC and aluminium windows can all come with woodgrain finishes, but for many homeowners, nothing beats the real thing.

Modern timber windows have more resilient softwood, which is sourced sustainably. Because of this, these designs shatter the myth that timber windows don’t last long. According to the BRE, many timber conservation area windows can last for 60 years, and we’ve seen examples of these windows making it past 100.

Also, timber conservation area windows give you more options. Because they have a timeless look, you can style the windows more creatively without worrying about them looking out of place. Not only that, you won’t have to pay higher prices for many of those options! As a result, you can get windows that pull on your heartstrings without pulling on your purse strings.

uPVC vs Timber Windows

At Dempsey Dyer, we offer both uPVC and timber windows for trade and commercial customers. But which of these windows should you bring into your product line? Both offer their own distinct benefits that often make uPVC and timber windows the opposite of each other. As such, it’s hard to decide which one is better for your business.

With uPVC windows, you’ll be able to provide a durable window in a range of designs to your customers. The uPVC frame is versatile and fully weatherproof, meaning it can reliably perform for years to come. Timber windows, meanwhile, have an authentic look that stands out, and with the proper maintenance can provide a sense of period quality for homes that lasts too.

With Dempsey Dyer, though, you don’t have to choose. We offer both uPVC and timber windows in a range of designs, and we use market-leading quality components and materials. And, if you’re struggling to decide, why not get the best of both worlds? We have a range of timber look windows available to our customers with short wait times and bespoke, responsive service!

Benefits of uPVC Windows

uPVC windows are impressively weatherproof designs. That means the uPVC won’t struggle in harsh weather conditions. The frames will keep their shape and strength, ensuring continued performance for the design. Also, you’ll provide homeowners with a window they don’t need to maintain, as the uPVC won’t crack, twist, warp or discolour for years to come.

Not only that, uPVC windows are thermally efficient designs. The durable uPVC frame is air and water-tight, preventing cold air from getting around the windows and into living spaces. Our designs have advanced double glazing too, improving insulation even further. That way, you can help your customers invest in a window that saves them money on energy bills!

With Dempsey Dyer, your business can also offer a vast range of uPVC windows. You can order traditional designs, including the flush sash casement range and our mock sliding sash windows. We also offer uPVC Stormproof windows that are even more equipped to deal with poor conditions. However, with uPVC, this performance can sacrifice the authentic quality of timber.

Benefits of Timber Windows

Timber windows have a quality that modern windows struggle to match. Wood has an authentic look, blending seamlessly with traditional properties and adding a sense of class to modern ones. However, at Dempsey Dyer, you can give your customers better performance too. Our timber windows are updated for the modern day with the components in our designs.

For example, when you bring our timber windows into your business, you’ll get designs made with Accoya wood. Accoya is a high-performance, modified species of softwood which is Class 1 for durability and quality. Because of this, you can offer your customers wooden windows that are durable and resilient, helping them last for years longer.

However, unlike uPVC windows, timber windows aren’t quite as weatherproof. That means wind and rain can still affect the frame over time, meaning they may not stay as pristine for as long as uPVC. So, both uPVC and timber windows have their own unique benefits. If you’re unsure which is the right choice for you to offer, there is a versatile third option that we’re proud to share.

Combining Benefits of uPVC and Timber Windows

Instead of comparing uPVC and timber windows, why not combine them? With Dempsey Dyer’s timber look windows, you’ll add a window that has the look of timber with the performance of uPVC to your range. Because of this, these windows stand out with their stunning aesthetics and are easy to maintain over time.

Our timber look windows take advantage of the Deceuninck 2800 profile, offering all the performance of uPVC. Not only that, you’ll be able to give your customers the chance to control the look of their windows completely. We offer a range of woodgrain finishes and colour options, and you can order any configuration with short wait times with Dempsey Dyer.

As a result, our timber look windows give your business more flexibility. You’ll be able to offer a unique design that your customers will love, perfectly filling the middle ground between timber and uPVC. You’ll be able to confidently offer what the market wants. Drawing on our vast experience, we identified a way to bridge the divide between uPVC vs timber, combining the best of both worlds for exceptional results.
