Case studies


Massey Limited specified Dakea Better Vintage windows for new housing development in a prestigious residential area in Sutton Coldfield. Chosen to blend in with the aesthetic of the surrounding area, the Better Vintage windows were praised for their easy installation and competitive pricing.

The private Manor Drive estate, consisting of five, five-bedroom detached properties, was developed by Massey Limited to meet increasing demand for executive homes in the area. A total of 25 Better Vintage KCV C4A centre pivot conservation roof windows were installed across the development along with Dakea KUF C4A Vintage Flashing. Ideal for heritage areas and renovation projects, the KCV is made of kiln-dried laminated pine wood, from FSC certified forests, with a black lacquer external profile and glazing bar. The Better Vintage also comes with a free underfelt foil collar (RUC) fo quick and easy installation every time.

Nigel Massey, Director of Massey Limited commented: “We chose the windows on the recommendation of our handle supplier, Hart Ironmongery, who use and supply Dakea products. We had not worked with Dakea before, but the windows were of an excellent quality and the price was right, so we took the recommendation. When we got to site, we were really happy with the delivery of the products, ease of installation and also the finished look, so we will definitely work with Dakea again in the future.”

I recommend Dakea windows to customers regularly and they are never disappointed.” The Dakea Better Vintage with flashing is suitable for all roofing systems with a pitch of 15-90°. All products come with a 10-year guarantee as standard, which can be extended to a 20-year guarantee when the window is registered on the Dakea website.
