Oak effect residence 9 windows with a view out from kitchen onto the garden

You might have heard of Residence 9 windows but what are they and would they suit your home? One of the most popular window brands in Britain, these could be the perfect choice to add some heritage charm to your home.

What are Residence 9 windows?

Residence 9 windows are a luxurious timber effect uPVC alternative to traditional timber windows. They have been authentically designed to fit into period homes and conservation areas. Using British joinery techniques, they’re indistinguishable from real timber. They will certainly add the wow factor to your home. With the choice of a flush sash or storm-proof windows for extra weather protection, you can choose the best window style for your home.

Like uPVC, these windows only need a simple clean to keep them looking as good as new for years to come. The colour won’t fade, crack or flake and the windows will be an effective defence against the elements and intrusion. With a nine-chambered profile design, heat cannot escape and the cold can’t get in. Say goodbye to draughts! You’ll be able to enjoy a comfortable temperature all year round as well as lower energy bills.

Problems with Residence 9 windows

There has been an issue with certain companies manufacturing Residence 9 windows with profiles that haven’t been bonded to the glass unit. As it’s designed for use as a glass-bonded system, this can severely limit the windows performance. A number of complaints have emerged on installations of these unglazed windows. However, Emerald solely use reputable fabricators and will never install Residence 9 windows that haven’t been glass bonded, meaning such issues needn’t occur.

Here at Emerald Windows and Doors, we offer Residence 7 and Residence2 alongside the popular Residence 9.
