Roseview’s world-class Ultimate Rose has helped celebrated installer Truro Windows give a stylish Cornish property an outstandingly authentic facelift.
A customer approached Truro with a tricky proposition. An ageing and draughty timber sash window in a quirky Kenwyn cul-de-sac that needed replacing – but the new product had to replicate the original’s distinctive arched design down to the finest details and match the feel and character of the surrounding estate.
The owners didn’t want to replace timber with timber – the window in question was on the upper floor of the property, and they’d learned from experience that this made the already arduous task of regularly painting and maintaining a wooden product even more of a pain.
But where other installers might have panicked, Truro knew exactly where to turn – Buckinghamshire-based Roseview, undisputed masters of all things sash window.
Over forty years, Roseview’s reputation has been built on offering the most authentic, highest-performing uPVC sash window projects on the market – and its most celebrated model of all is the award-winning Ultimate Rose.
First introduced in 2013, its slim timber-like profiles, meeting rail, and period features as painstakingly detailed as full mechanical joints, run-through-sash horns and traditional sash furniture immediately marked the Ultimate Rose out as special.
But then the respected fabricator decided to try and push the boundaries even further. After extensive planning and testing, the Ultimate Rose Mark 2 was born, offering the slimmest meeting stile on the market (35mm) – which, combined with its flush run-through sash horns, putty lines, claw locks and full mechanical joints, make it the most authentic uPVC sash window ever produced.
Together, Truro and Roseview collaborated to produce an Ultimate Rose that exactly matched the design of the property’s timber window – including its distinctive arched head.
“Roseview couldn’t have been more helpful when it came to customising the product for this specific job,”commented Truro Installation Manager Matt Baxter. “We were delighted with the results – and much more importantly, so was the customer. They’re already planning for us to install more Rose Collection products at the property later this year.”
Roseview Sales Director Richard Burrells commented: “Truro Windows are a fantastic installer, and they’ve done stunning work on this project. We look forward to collaborating with them on dozens more projects in the future!”
