2021 has undoubtedly been a testing year for many. Despite the challenges of this year, we have worked tirelessly to continue to deliver our range of high-quality, bespoke steel windows, doors and conservation rooflights.
Clement has had the pleasure of working with a number of new clients, delivering a unique range of steel-framed units across both residential and commercial clients. Here are a few of our favourite projects from 2021.
Ground-breaking modernist house updated with new Clement windows
The owner of this Grade II* listed property in Surrey was looking for windows and doors to complement the original ‘modernist’ aspects of the property. Built-in 1932 by well-renowned architects Connell, Ward and Lucas, this home is a perfect example of the Modernist Movement in architecture. Finished with our EB20 windows coated in matt Pastel Blue, and EB20 doors with multi-point locking, the rooms in this home benefit from the early morning and late afternoon sun.

The December 2021 issue of 25 Beautiful Homes includes an article about interior designer Anne-Marie Leigh’s beautiful Arts and Crafts home which in turn features EB16 leaded steel windows by Clement.
Clement specialises in the manufacture of custom-made steel windows, doors and screens and has applied this expertise in steel fenestration to develop a range of high-quality rooflights that are regularly specified by architects and conservation officers as complementary additions to your home.
Our conservation rooflights are modern replicas of Victorian originals. Available in eight standard sizes, we can also manufacture bespoke ones to your exact requirements. Clement rooflights come in two profiles, one for slate roofs and another for tile, so we are sure to have a solution for your heritage project.
We were delighted to be back at the Grosvenor House in London on 2nd November to present the award for the Small Project of the Year category at this year’s Building Awards.
Clement Windows Group Chief Executive, Peter Clement, presented the award to architectural practice Woods Bagot for their design of the new library at St Mary’s Calne School in Wiltshire.
Opened at the end of 2020, the library was designed to reflect the school’s history and its local surroundings. The building’s lower level includes an informal lounge area which houses the school’s fiction collection, while the upper level is intended for more focused, individual study.
Steel windows and doors are generally very low maintenance. However, with the winter months ahead, it is best practice to carry out some routine cleaning and upkeep to ensure they’re doing the job of keeping your home safe and warm.
There are several benefits to steel windows and doors. As steel is one of the most strong and durable materials available, the longevity of correctly designed and constructed steel frames can be enhanced if good maintenance practices are observed.
Clement’s windows, doors, screens and rooflights are hot-dip galvanised and coated with a strong polyester powder paint to prevent rusting, but it is still vital to keep the frames clean to ensure they last well.
We’ve put together a list of some essential winter maintenance and cleaning tips to ensure your steel windows and doors remain in the best condition to take on the wet and windy months ahead:
HGV driver shortages, port blockages, energy price increases…everywhere we turn at the moment there seems to be bad news BUT buy your conservation rooflights from Clement Windows Group and be assured of good stock availability and quick delivery times!
Clement Conservation Rooflights are competitively priced and available in eight standard sizes with delivery generally within 2-3 working days. They are manufactured in two profiles, one for thicker roofing types such as pantiles and the other for thinner materials like slate. This means that with very little effort your rooflight can be installed to lie as flush as possible with your roof, achieving an even, level finish.
Making the return to office-based working more palatable, Clement Windows has recently manufactured and installed new steel windows at two stunning office refurbishment projects in Central London.
Imagine our excitement when we heard that a Clement steel door was on the cover of the latest House & Garden magazine!
We were thrilled to see a project we worked on for homeowners Mark and Georgie Rowse had been featured not only on the cover, but also across a 10 page article ‘Barn to be Wild’ in July’s issue.
What does ‘home’ mean to you? In most cases, at the forefront of your mind will be a space that provides comfort for you and your family. A huge amount of reassurance comes from the feeling of safety, and luckily there are a number of precautions you can take to ensure the security of your home is optimised.
At Clement Windows, we are able to deliver high quality, high security, steel windows and doors to fit your bespoke designs, offering support at every stage of the process.
Securing your home
Windows and doors are probably the most important factors in securing your home but are all too often neglected in favour of other automatic security systems.
Although the front door is the most common entryway to your home, windows are generally the most fragile and therefore the easiest points of entry for unwelcome visitors.
It is important to make sure that all possible entry points to your home are up to scratch when it comes to security.
As a recipient of the Best of Houzz awards 2021 in both the design and customer service categories, Clement Windows has been recognised by the online home improvement platform for unrivalled excellence in the steel window industry for six years running, as a result of the glowing testimonials given by both our commercial and residential customers.
At Clement Windows, our number one priority is providing a quality product and excellent service to our customers. Our steel windows, doors, rooflights and screens are approved by some of the most exclusive accreditors, in order to assure our customers that they’re getting the best of the best.
According to Barbour ABI’s Economic & Construction Market Review, total contract awards for 2020 reached £57billion, despite a 5% fall due to the COVID pandemic.
The UK construction industry is huge and moves at a fast pace and companies need to keep up if they are to meet quality benchmarks and health and safety standards, something that became only too apparent when COVID struck last year and a whole host of changes needed to be introduced in order to keep projects going.
At Clement Windows we are proud of our heritage as manufacturers of high quality steel windows and doors and we have worked hard to achieve and maintain a number of professional accreditations that reflect our commitment to excellence, providing our customers with peace of mind when selecting us as partners for commercial projects.
To gain these accreditations, business must submit to regular assessment and testing and meet a minimum standard and only members who achieve 100% pass rate gain the use of the mark. Below we explain a little bit more about some of the accreditations we hold.
