Choosing to replace your windows requires considerable thought; it’s important to make a well-informed choice. Deciding what’s best for your home will depend on a variety of factors. If you have decided you want your new windows to have the traditional timber-effect look, with the low maintenance and high performance of uPVC, we have two available options. At Wolverhampton Glass, we install the Residence Collection and Infinity Windows. Read on, as we discuss which option is best for you.


Residence Collection windows


Residence Collection vs Infinity flush sash windows: aesthetics

Both of these windows provide seriously impressive aesthetics to homes across Wolverhampton and beyond. The window you choose ultimately boils down to personal choice and individual taste.

We offer both the Residence 7 and Residence 9 windows. The difference between the two is that R7 windows have a contemporary flush look internally and externally, whereas R9 windows look traditional with a wood effect for a more heritage aesthetic. Residence 7 windows boast a chic modern appearance that can be applied to both contemporary new builds and traditional homes alike. Residence 9 windows are built to match the specifications of Article 4 directions, meaning they are likely to be your safest bet when replacing older windows in conservation areas.

If you are seeking to recreate the authentic timber look to its fullest, the Infinity option is another choice to consider. Infinity’s innovative design ensures that any leftover plastic has been smoothed out of the frames, leaving sleek corner joints that look just like authentic timber windows. Infinity windows are available in a selection of colours and wood grain effect finishes. From classic Chartwell Green to contemporary Agate Grey, there’s a colour for everyone in the Infinity range.

Residence Collection vs Infinity flush sash windows: energy efficiency

Both Residence collection and Infinity windows are capable of achieving A++ Window Energy Ratings and enviably low U-values of just 0.8 W/m²K. Constructed from insulating uPVC material and double glazed sealed units as standard, both of these window types provide similarly high levels of energy efficiency that far surpass Building Regulation minimum requirements.

Residence Collection vs Infinity flush sash windows: maintenance

Both options are constructed from uPVC, a material renowned for its distinctively low maintenance qualities. All you’ll ever need to worry about when purchasing either set is giving them the occasional wipe over with a damp cloth to keep them looking as good as the day they were fitted.

Could I just put on record how impressed we have been with Mick and the team who came to lay the base last week.
They arrived promptly, worked very hard and efficiently, left everything tidy, and above all they have done an excellent job in just a few days.
I assume we were lucky enough to have had your A team working here. If they are not recognised as such, well they should be!
Please thank them on our behalf for doing an excellent job.
Thanks again

Mr and Mrs Pilkington

Just wanted to thank you all for the installations carried out at my house last week. The window fitters were great, and I have to pass on an extra special thanks for the chap who came in on the Friday to single handedly fit the doors. He was brilliant and did an amazing job. All your fitters kept me informed what was going on and left no mess. So happy with the result. Many thanks to you too Matt, for juggling jobs to keep my kitchen refit on schedule. Much appreciated.

Ms Chambers

I would like to thank all at Wolverhampton Glass for an exceptionally professional and satisfactory Warmer Roof installation carried out by Carl, Alan, and Brian over the last few days. Even though the weather was less than ideal the guys worked tirelessly to ensure that all aspects of the installation went smoothly. Where there were issues, they were sorted with the minimum of fuss and their tidiness and attention to detail was impressive and greatly appreciated.

Mr Christopher Day
