Explore Indie Cambridge - Cambridge Classics
If you own a period house, then you will no doubt love the original features you get in these types of properties. Cosy open fire places, pretty cornice detailing, and original fixtures and fittings are all part of the picture. Another important feature – both from the inside and outside – are traditional period windows. Sadly, some of these have been replaced with less than attractive alternatives or, over the years, the original windows are now in need of some TLC. If this is the case, then it’s time to give Cambridge Classics a call.
From traditional windows including sash, casement and Norfolk slider through to lovely wooden shutters, classic bespoke doors and interior and exterior decorating, Cambridge Classics aims to provide all these with the highest level of quality and service. And they’re not just about the looks. The double-glazed windows are made using energy-efficient glass and the space between the glass is filled with Argon gas which saves heat loss through the glazing. This also means less noise coming in from outside, so you can truly enjoy your period home in comfort.
Cambridge Classics is a family-owned and managed business with over 15 years’ experience and knowledge. Its dedicated team of carpenters and decorators work closely with trusted local suppliers and 2019 has seen an exciting move for them to brand-new offices and showroom on Cherry Hinton Road in Cambridge – the city they know and love.
The building itself has been a work in progress – it had no heating for three years! But that’s okay. As you can imagine, the team at Cambridge Classics are no strangers to creating beautiful spaces and transforming houses into homes!
