By their nature, gable windows are usually custom built, dependent on the framing, slant of your roof and size of your home. Not to be confused with dormer windows which are located in protrusions from the slanted part of a pitched roof, gable windows sit on the sides of a home just beneath the roof. All of our windows are made to measure, 100% made in Germany and tailored to your size, colour and material requirements.
Choosing the Right Material for your Window Frame
Whether for a conservatory, orangery, dormer or a simple gable, you have the choice between four different material options. Your choice of window materials plays a large role in determining the insulation properties, colour options, maintenance requirements, security and cost. There are timber and uPVC, or aluminium clad versions of both.
First and foremost, it is important to select a material that either matches your existing facade, or appears to match it. We offer windows in the entire RAL colour range making it easy to find the specific colour or shade you need. Next, each material offers a different mix of advantages of strengths.
The most common today, uPVC is best thought of as a blank slate with a myriad of configuration options. It does not begin with the same natural insulation ability as timber for example. However, as a material, it is by far the most flexible and easy to work with. Modern engineering and designs enable multiple internal chambers in the frame with the option of foam filling that can far surpass timber.
Timber is a natural insulator and proven material through history. It offers the most character and beauty of any material and excellent durability with proper care. Each species of wood features a slightly different insulation value, toughness and appearance providing homeowners a great deal of flexibility as well. We offer many species, including but not limited to walnut, cherry, pine, larch, eucalyptus, meranti and more.
Aluminium combines a sleek modern look with extraordinary strength and long term durability. It is used to clad either our timber or uPVC frames, boosting their weather-resistance, insulation value, security and appearance
