Haslemere, Surrey February 2017 Timber Flush Casement Windows
A beautiful oak frame extension, to a historic house in the Surrey countryside. We were tasked, by the architect, to supply and install the new flush casement timber windows along with oak cladding to surround them, as well as doing the ornate lead work, acting as the external sill.
Once the oak frame was in place and the roof complete, we arrived on site to install the new timber windows in the oak frame. All of the windows were installed with a special, expanding foam gasket around them. The reason for this is that it allows the movement of the oak frame structure (as oak moves a lot as a timber) whilst still keeping the window surrounds air tight, all year round.
We then placed timber beading around the inside (with no fixings directly into the window) and clad the external with more solid oak (again with no mechanical fixings in the window), thus allowing free movement of all oak whilst remaining well sealed due to the expanding foam gasket solution. We also rebated the oak to accommodate the lead, before the capping was fixed into place. Again, the lead required no fixing, allowing free movement.
We think the leadwork, complementing the oak and the windows speaks volumes about our attention to detail. All leadwork was carried out by our team, onsite, by hand; to ensure a perfect finish.View Gallery
