Contemporary/Traditional Windows

Heartwood has just finished a window job with the perfect balance ofdetail of windows contemporary and traditional design. The main uprights/mullions on the inside are moulded with the same mouldings copied from 16th century mullion windows, the opening and fixed sashes are more modern with a smaller ovollo moulding. The glazing panels are large sealed units with a high insulation value (argon gas filled k glass). The overall effect is a large glazed area creating alot of light in a large sitting room and the perfect marriage between modern and traditional.

Testimonials

Heartwood Construction shows a refreshing enthusiasm and a professional approach to the inevitable repairs that are required. The installation of a concealed steel (T / flitch plate) inside a prominent oak beam was completed with a minimum of fuss and no unsightly reminders. Chris Payne richly deserves his 2009 Sussex Heritage Trust Award for a competent and sympathetic approach to historic restoration.

I would like to add my name to the many satisfied customers of Heartwood Construction and Joinery. In our case they constructed a complex solid oak stair case over three floors, with an extra landing. This complex construction was in an Oast House which does not know what a “straight line or right angle” is! So this was a very complex difficult construction. We were delighted with the outcome, which was finished to an extremely high standard, and fitted with minimal disruption. I certainly would recommend Heartwood where complex hand crafted skills are needed.
