It is not often we have the chance to work in such a beautiful and unspoilt location, but recently Arden Windows won a replacement ‘supply & fit' project with the Duchy of Cornwall to do just that.
The properties, mostly traditional stone built, are owned by the Duchy of Cornwall and set in an idyllic location in Somerset not far from historic Bath.
Arden Windows' modern over rebated casement window, the ‘Warwick' was used to replace old steel windows, and then Arden's Stratford door sets were installed to match. One of the key success factors in winning the contract was the environmental advantages of Arden Windows timber products which aligned with the environmental approach and values of the Duchy of Cornwall.
By utilising water based Boron preservative and micro-porous water based paints, a significant reduction in VOCs (or Volatile Organic Compounds) which are known to detrimentally affect the environment is achieved. Arden Windows were complimented by the Duchy of Cornwall on the high level of product quality and installation finishing achieved.
