Bespoke bay windows in Cottingham

Ms Shaw, Cottingham

Why did they choose EYG?

  • Wanted to update ageing wooden bay window
  • Keen to use modern UPVC replacement
  • Needed energy-efficient double glazing
  • Wanted windows to open in French door style
  • Eager to use well-established company

What did we do?

This beautiful ornate bay window design is typical of those used on homes in Cottingham, a lovely village location with a number of period properties.

Whilst the homeowner wanted a French door-style opening for the main window, they were keen to retain as much of this imposing bay’s original charm as possible.

So, we came up with a draft-reducing solution which would not look out of place or detract from the property’s ornate kerb appeal.

The decorative stone arch was retained to form a key part of the design, with the new double-glazed window fitted behind it for a modern twist on a classic look.

Decorative horns were incorporated into both of the adjacent single UPVC windows, which featured clear glass to give the overall scheme a traditional finish.

How long did it take?

  • Installation wise, we were done and dusted within a day - although we obviously spent more time designing and manufacturing the windows.
