Residence Q&A – Is R9 Conservation Area and Listed Building Approved?

May 30th 2018

A Conservation Area is an area of specific architectural or historical interest, the character or appearance of which is desirable to preserve or enhance.

Many of our towns, villages and cities rely on historic windows for much of their architectural impact and character. Inappropriate, poor quality replacement windows can easily erode traditional features on historic buildings.

Residence 9 windows are not a regular UPVC window system. It’s a clever blend of old and new. It fuses classic aesthetics with a twist of modern materials.

We have taken great care to purposefully design to Conservation standards, from the profile depth to the external sightlines ands the elegant heritage decorative details. R9 is well loved by planners and Councils and has been accepted into various Conservations Areas throughout the UK, and more recently into listed buildings. This is testament to just how accepted they are as a true timber alternative.

This Grade II listed College building in Scarborough. The image directly below on the left shows the old wooden windows, in a rotten state, in much need of replacement.  The image to the right is R9 in Grained White timber effect foil finish – a like for like replacement that not only maintains the buildings character, but the added reassurance and benefits of a market leading, modern window system too.
