Replacing windows and doors without compromising your property’s character
Replacing windows and doors is a fantastic way to make your home more energy efficient, saving you money and keeping you cosy as the winter nights draw in. You’ve worked hard to make your house a home; upgrading to more energy-efficient windows and doors shouldn’t involve compromising the character that makes it yours. Whether you’ve opted for a sleek new build or a charming period cottage, we offer well-designed quality windows and doors that maintain your desired lifestyle without sacrificing any modern comforts. There’s bound to be a perfect fit for your home amongst our range of stylish options.
If you’re wondering where to buy windows and doors that best suit your needs, please read on to discover more about our energy-efficient options.
1. Double Glazing
A great window should help to keep your home warm and your bills down. Double or triple-glazing is a must-have feature for modern windows, and it is such a popular feature for a reason. 18% of a home’s heat loss occurs via windows, and single glazing loses heat twice as fast as double glazing. Choosing double-glazed windows will increase your home’s insulation significantly and save you money and stress when managing your energy bills. You will also benefit from noise reduction, reduced condensation and higher security.
We love to chat about the weather in the UK, most likely because we experience an unpredictable variety of seasons, sometimes even in one day! You want a home that can face blustery autumn storms, icy winter mornings and random summer heatwaves. Our hybrid windows cope excellently with whatever the Great British weather decides to throw at them.
2. Hybrid Windows
Hybrid windows are designed to be weather-resistant and are an excellent choice to avoid warping, rusting or rotting. They are a low-maintenance option, too. There’s no need to update their external paint. With a longer lifetime than PVC-U windows, you can tick ‘sort windows’ off your list with no worries once installed. We are pleased to offer both flush and lipped casement options at Benchmark, so whatever your style, you can still invest in the highest quality.
3. Noise Reduction Windows
More and more of us are working remotely or in hybrid roles. Installing noise-cancelling windows will allow you to set up your desk next to the natural light of your window without having the bin collection broadcast to your whole team call! Whether you’re looking to upgrade your home office or create a quiet sanctuary in your living room, we would love to chat with you about noise-cancelling options. Our services include effective installation and specialist noise-reduction glass.
4. Timber Replica
Sussex is home to a beautiful selection of traditional period cottages straight out of iconic paintings and postcards of the English countryside. If you have invested in your dream period home, retaining its unique aesthetic will be close to your heart. There’s no need to compromise on the beauty of your property when installing new windows. Our Timber Replica windows are designed specifically for this purpose.
Timber Replica windows mimic the traditional style of period windows, including having a rustic wood grain effect. The fine craftsmanship makes these windows virtually indistinguishable from original period windows. We can produce these windows in a wide range of colours to complement the aesthetics of your home.
The value of your home will be increased by installing new windows, offering the modern comforts of increased energy efficiency, insulation and minimal maintenance. Timber Replica windows are an elegant and stylish option to benefit your lifestyle.
While upgrading your windows, why not also treat yourself to some sophisticated new doors? Timber Replica doors make an excellent paring with Timber Replica windows.

What colour would your dream doors be? If you’ve been collecting door colour inspiration from homeware magazines to elevate your doors, we have great news. Our doors come in various colour options, meaning you can find an excellent match for your scheme. For the minimalist, we offer a range of calm, sophisticated neutral colours. If you’d rather make a statement, why not opt for a fun yellow or a pop of red? Choosing your door colour is a great way to add personality to your home.
If you choose Timber Replica doors, whatever colour you pick will be finished with a classy, authentic woodgrain finish. Timber Replica doors retain the distinctive look of wooden doors whilst providing you with all the benefits of low-maintenance, non-wood doors.
