The walnut tree is a symbol of intelligence, wisdom and inspiration so it’s no surprise that the owners of this self-build in South Lincolnshire plumped for George Barnsdale windows and doors.
The walnut tree is a symbol of intelligence, wisdom and inspiration so it’s no surprise that the owners of this self-build in South Lincolnshire have created such a beautiful home. When choosing materials, a list of key considerations was used by the couple to assess potential suppliers including locality, quality, service, product specifics and price.
“We didn’t choose suppliers based on price solely, we decided we were prepared to pay more for high quality and that’s what we got from companies like George Barnsdale.”
Kate and Leeson first became aware of George Barnsdale windows whilst visiting their architect who had them at his own property. Established in 1884 George Barnsdale still operates out of the same site in Donington, Lincolnshire so the self-builders paid a visit to the showroom and factory which helped them make their minds up. They were particularly impressed with the level of customisation available, the quality of the products and the wide range of colours available. They also saw first-hand the lengths the company goes to in order to ensure their products will last at least 60 years with minimal maintenance. The unique four stage paint process and features like the patented sash seal reassured the couple that there really was no need to look outside the area for timber windows and doors.
Commenting, Kate said:
“Incorporating unique features like the glass etching really helped to personalise our home and we are delighted with the final results. The quality of the windows and doors is second to none.”
