In upper Helensburgh, developed by wealthy Victorian Glasgow merchants, a variety of suburban homes can be found, ranging from old traditional villas to modern new builds.
Scots architect Charles Rennie Mackintosh has also had an impact on the architecture in Helensburgh. Our customers modern home was inspired and based on Mackintosh’s designs.
Whilst only 25 years old, the black wooden windows needed constantly repaired and painted. The couple wanted to replace them but the black windows added such a contrast to their large white rendered home that they did not want to put white windows into the property.
When Mrs Bowan saw CR Smith in B&Q Glasgow advertising “Anthracite Grey”, they knew that Lorimer windows in this colour option was for them.
“The new windows are fantastic and they have really cheered up the home and us dramatically. They are nice both to look at and out of and we feel much more secure in our home. We have noticed a massive improvement in drafts and leaks and the full finished oak frames really finish the windows off inside”
Anthracite Grey is contemporary and striking colour, which will add a stylish and sophisticated look to a property and is complemented internally with a bright white UPVC finish.
