The USPs available to installers to help sell their windows and doors to the general public is large now. Security, build quality, energy efficiency, door designs. There are plenty of them. Colour is perhaps one of the biggest growing trends of the moment too. In particular, heritage colours. The types of colours really traditional windows and doors used to be. Things like Agate Grey…

Agate Grey available from John Fredericks

For a little while now the fantastic new Agate Grey colour has been available as part of a wider range of colours and foil finishes from John Fredericks.

The demand for more colour and more choice has been very apparent over the last couple of years, especially so for heritage colours such as Chartwell Green, Slate Grey, Cream and so on. And the popularity for Agate Grey has been steadily rising too.

Previously only available as a spray finish, Agate Grey is now held as a stock finish by John Fredericks, as part of it’s growing heritage range of PVCu windows and doors.

This great installation by Artisan Windows demonstrates the effectiveness of the colour:

This installation is a good demonstration that heritage colours like Agate Grey and others suit buildings other than rendered or traditional ones. The timber cladding on this home contrasts really nicely against the Agate Grey finish.

The trend for heritage colours is going to grow in popularity over the coming years. Reds and blues are nice, but perhaps not the right colours for windows. Heritage colours on the other hand lend a more subtle effect, allowing the homeowner a choice of colour, without having to worry about a brash, in your face effect.

If you’re interested in Agate Grey, or are in the market for a supplier to service your needs and interests in the expanding heritage colour sector, John Fredericks could be the ones to speak to.
