Aaron Fountain, Director of ADM Windows, said: “Our customer wanted to replace the ageing timber windows of his farmhouse and replace them with high quality windows that would enhance the heritage look and offer modern day thermal efficiency and security.” This installation is the latest in a growing number of projects for ADM Windows that involve the Spectus Flush Casement. Aaron comments: “We’ve seen a tremendous growth in interest in the Spectus Flush Casement window since we added it to our portfolio. I’m not surprised, though: it delivers what the market needs.” The Spectus Flush Casement window’s aesthetics reflect the looks of traditional 19th century timber casement windows but with the added benefits of 21st century security, thermal efficiency and low maintenance, making it an ideal product for heritage refurbishments.
