Conservation Area Window Replacement

10 February 2021

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 You may have heard that some outdated timber profiles have a reputation for struggling over time and requiring regular upkeep and expenses.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.
