Why upgrade your doors to the Residence Collection with Creating Spaces?

Introducing Creating Spaces’ Residence Doors – the unrivalled timber alternative door system, renowned for its market-leading status. Residence doors offer a diverse range of 20 door styles meticulously designed to seamlessly complement both traditional and modern homes.

Heritage Design for 21st Century Living

The design brief for The Residence Collection was to extract the key principles, shapes and dimensions from Article 4 directions for doors, and integrate market leading technology into the design using virtually maintenance free materials; your windows and doors won’t warp, swell, flake or need sanding and painting, ever! The Residence Collection offers a suite of thermally and acoustically superior window and door systems, featuring the latest security, maintenance and performance innovations, whilst still appearing traditional. A beautiful addition to your home.

What are Article 4 Directives and do they apply to my home?

Article 4 directions are made by the local planning authority, and this can affect you when installing windows in your home. They restrict the scope of permitted development rights, either in relation to a particular area or site, or a particular type of development anywhere in the authority’s area. Article 4 directions are used to control works that could threaten the character and architectural merit of an area or building of acknowledged importance. This means that new windows and doors may need planning permission. Windows are the defining feature and focal point of any building and the type of window installed can improve or completely ruin the look of a building, which is important in conservation areas or listed buildings.

What is a Conservation Area?

An area “of special architectural or historic interest, the character or appearance of which it is desirable to preserve or enhance”. Many of our towns, villages and cities rely on correctly specified windows for much of their architectural impact and character. Inappropriate, poor quality replacement windows can easily erode traditional features on historic buildings.

What is a Listed Building?

Listing is not a preservation order, preventing change. It does not freeze a building in time, it simply means that listed building consent must be applied for in order to make any changes to that building, which might affect its special interest. It’s there to protect the aesthetic of that building.

How does The Residence Collection fit into this?

A more modern approach has been for planning authorities to approve the use of The Residence Collection in conservation areas because of its authentic design. It has been specifically designed to aesthetically replicate the documented historical window designs from the 19th Century period and therefore has been approved for use in many areas across the UK. The Residence Collection has also been fitted in many listed buildings, however the local authority uses listed building consent to make decisions that balance the site’s historic significance against other issues, such as its function, condition or viability. With listed building consent it is not always just about the aesthetic, it can sometimes be about the material choices too.

The importance of Planning Permission

You should always obtain planning permission from the Local Planning Authority before commencing work, Creating Spaces can help you with this process, our team have access to specialists at the residence collection who have successfully worked with numerous local authority planning departments to help the process and allow these modern replication products to be installed in a listed property. Please speak to our team for further details and help in getting this product fitted to your beautiful home.

Installation of Windows & Doors

At Creating spaces we have a specialist team who understand the do’s and dont’s with windows and doors installations. 

As part of our service, one of our team will come to your home and perform a quotation survey, taking into consideration what products you currently have and providing advise on what new products you should look to install, whilst carrying out this survey we will be looking at what is involved in removing your current windows and doors and replacing them with new, energy efficient products from our range. 

Once you choose us as your preferred installer, one of the team will come back to take more accurate measurements to ensure your installation runs smoothly from start to finish.

At the end of your installation we take away your old products and send them away for recycling, helping you to do your part in taking care of our environment for the future generations.

We know that when it comes to improving your home with new windows and doors, it can be a daunting task to find a company that you can trust. Here at Creating Spaces, we are an Assure-certified installer, our surveyors and installers have been trained and signed off to complete the work meaning you can rest assured that the installation complies with Building Regulations and is therefore legal and correct. You will also be sent a certificate of registration for this. This will come directly from Assure Certification and should arrive within 28 days and proves that the work is registered with the Local Authority.

All our installers and surveyors registered with Assure will be provided with branded ID cards so you know they are exactly who they claim and they have the appropriate Mandatory Technical Competences (MTC’s) to complete the work on your home.
