Window Sales on the increase

Customers have stopped considering as house move and are instead looking after the one they are in. Window sales are up 25% on last year. Flat roofing sales are up 40%.

New Year New Roof !

December saw the launch of a new venture for our conservatory division. will cater for those clients who already have a conservatory that is adequate apart from the roof. Many conservatories are too hot in summer or too cold in winter due to the roof being incorrectly designed or specified initially. We can now offer a complete new roof only option for conservatories enabling a massive improvement at a reasonable cost. The latest self cleaning and energy saving glasses are available in the new roofs as well as opening vents if required. Read More

Aluminium has made a comeback Partly because it is 100% recyclable and also because it can be made to look very contemporary with its range of colours and slim sight lines. We can offer aluminium frames now for windows, doors and conservatories in any RAL colour. Read More

Orangeries Popular

We have noticed over the past year or so that conservatory fashion is changing somewhat. Orangeries and tiled roofs, particularly with vaulted ceilings are very much in vogue. Admiral can design and build any style of conservatory in PVC, Timber or Aluminium. The picture shows a small Orangery in the course of construction. Notice how the roof is part solid, creating a dramatic combination with the glass roof and gable. Read More

Ex-Hunts Glass staff Join Admiral

When one door (or window) closes…Having spent almost fourteen years with the same local company, Julian Hale was understandably “gutted” when Hunts Glass LLP went into administration in December 2007. Not only had he lost a job that he enjoyed, he took great pride in offering his personal approval and assistance with every conservatory and window installation the company carried out. “The company changed ownership some five years ago and if I am honest, things were never the same once the original owner departed” states Julian. “I felt that I had let people down and had determined to leave the industry and try something completely different”. That is when he had a call from Steve Thorogood MD of Admiral Homespace based at Alconbury, Cambridge. The two companies had enjoyed a friendly rivalry for many years, so there existed… Read More

Technology and Timber

In a marriage of the latest energy saving technology and engineered timber frames, Cambridge based Admiral Timber Windows are installing what they believe is the most attractive, high performing and ECO friendly wood window system in the United Kingdom. Traditional timber windows look so much more elegant than modern PVC or Aluminium frames. In many of our homes the only option is to replace the Georgian or Victorian frames with timber in order to preserve the value and integrity of the property. In the past this has meant accepting the compromise of hand-made windows from a local Joiner, often with the accompanying lack of insulation, draughts and discomfort from those bygone eras. Admiral Timber Windows offer the highest of modern insulation standards providing a U Value that exceeds most PVC windows. The units are available in Sash sliding, Flush casement… Read More

Record November

Sales in November were a record for the month. Traditionally conservatory and window sales are sluggish in the run up to Christmas. We are happy to see that Admiral appear to be contradicting the negativite press of interest rate rises and imminent price crashes in the housing market! Maybe people are deciding to move rather than improve?… Read More
