Residence Collection Windows – the key differences

The Residence Collection is a high-quality luxury product. It is a leading brand that manufactures an incredible uPVC timber effect window that has been designed to replicate the 19th-century window style.

You can offer customers the next generation of uPVC windows, which will meet current design trends and boost your profit margins simultaneously! Let’s look at the differences between the Residence 7 and Residence 9 collections and see which one your clients will choose for their next home improvement project.

Residence 7 Vs Residence 9 windows

The Residence 7 and 9 collections do share similarities, but they have some differences to consider.

The two collections offer different profiles. The Residence 7 windows offer a fully flush profile inside and out, as Residence 9 offers a flush exterior profile and a decorative internal appearance. They do share the same bespoke range of hardware and accessories so you can customise the new windows to your client’s preferred home style.

What are the differences between Residence 7 and Residence 9 windows?

Although the Residence 7 and 9 collections have similarities, they offer several differences that make the profiles differ.

The modern manufacturing process of Residence windows

The modern manufacturing process for the fabrication of the Residence window collection improves the window’s strength and removes the need for glass bonding. The perfectly sealed joints in the Residence frames will not crack, move, or open and are screwed and glued together just like timber windows.

This process is known as authentic timber weld and has revolutionised the industry. Residence windows are leading the way in this manufacturing technique. The advantage of this technique is the internal weld strength increases the rigidity of the profile giving a market-leading edge.
