Heritage Windows & Doors in Newark, Nottingham

With such a variety of modern materials and styles to choose from these days, an increasing number of homeowners are grasping the opportunity to restore their homes’ unique heritage and character. Increasing kerb-appeal and enjoyment with ease, as well as property value, super-efficient heritage-look uPVC windows and character-rich composite doors can even meet the requirements of most conservation area officers too.

This brings us smoothly on to our next case study, which took us 2 miles northeast of Newark-on-Trent to the peaceful and secluded Nottinghamshire village of Winthorpe.

Pain Points


Heritage windows on brick house

The previous owners of this period semi-detached home had installed second-rate uPVC windows and doors that were simply out-of-touch with the original building and the surrounding neighbourhood. Therefore, heritage-inspired windows and doors infused with modern security and energy efficient qualities were required. Taking their rural heritage seriously, they also sought our unrivalled expertise regarding local planning permissions.

The Solution

Agate Grey Dual Colour Flush Sash Windows


Heritage windows

Although the property was not listed or within Winthorpe’s conservation area, the client sought advice on the best style and colour of windows and doors to seamlessly match and enhance their homes classic aesthetics, whilst complementing the surrounding area at the same time. Neatly sitting flush within the face of the frame, the authentic, slim profile of our versatile flush sash windows smoothly replicate the appearance of timeless timber whilst maximising the glazed area – flooding the space with warming natural light all year round. A+ Rated for energy efficiency, these thermally advanced window frames will keep this family warm and cosy, while virtually paying for themselves thanks to the incredible energy savings to be had.

Embracing a muted, heritage palette, dual colour neutral Agate Grey frames enhance the exterior façade whilst white frames inside provide greater flexibility over future interior decoration.

The Results

Twilight Grey Composite Door with Victorian Etched Glass

Twilight grey composite door

As part of Solidor’s beautiful Pastel Range, a traditional Twilight Grey composite front door was chosen in the simply striking Ludlow design. Sitting between dark Anthracite Grey and lighter French Grey, Twilight Grey (Pantone 7544) evokes a real feeling of tranquillity and stability. Solidor composite doors are also one of the most reliable front doors around, thanks to a robust 48mm timber core and a highly durable thermo-plastic ABS skin – allowing these homeowners to leave behind any security worries or performance issues literally at the door!

Finished with decorative Victorian etched glass, the heritage look of this rural Nottinghamshire home has been well and truly restored whilst infusing a fresh and contemporary edge that will be the envy of the neighbourhood. Complementing the new Agate Grey flush sash windows, the finishing touch came by stripping back the timber porch surround to a natural woodgrain.
