House to Home Transformation; Reigate, Surrey
This house situated in the historic market town of Reigate, in south east Surrey whilst a good shape was quite heavy on the eye from the exterior and the layout of the house was quickly found to be unsuited to family life.
On the exterior Inappropriate casement window designs busy with applied lead and a mix of materials; bricks; render and tile cladding all made for a very busy first impression of this home. Back to Front Exterior Design have transformed this property not only on the exterior creating a traditional simple design but internally too with a contemporary living space for a growing family.
With the introduction of a few carefully chosen natural and sustainable materials including slate and timber the house had been transformed, a real life ugly duckling story.
“Sash windows are incredibly versatile and Bereco’s attention to detail on the period features give a warm and welcoming exterior and create a great backdrop for a stunning contemporary interior. “ Alexandra Hull. Back to Front Exterior Design.
100% FSC Redwood timber sliding sash windows and timber doors all fully factory finished from Bereco timber windows have been fitted in place of the aged uPVC casement windows that once featured here. With this the home now boasts improved energy efficiency with u values of just 1.2W/m²K on the windows and 1.4W/m²K on the doors and a real sustainability with all the wooden windows and doors having a proven life span in excess of 60 years meaning the Turpin’s won’t be replacing their new windows any time soon.
“We are very pleased with the stunning windows supplied by Bereco. The quality is impressive and the finish is beautiful. The service was very good and they were able to tailor our order to our exact requirements, down to the colour of the internal trims. We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Bereco “ Mrs T. Home Owner.
A soft pastel colour pallet for both the render and the windows and timber doors have transformed this house into a contemporary home with a traditional edge and the results well they speak for themselves.
