Sliding sash windows 

Period style windows 

Many Victorian and Edwardian properties have vertical sliding sash windows.  Originally these windows would be made with timber and single glazed.

Timber frames can cause problems because they sometimes warp and after time the paint flakes.  Moreover, single glazing can let draughts in, which is bad news for energy loss.  Old timber frames can also rattle and be a nuisance to operate.

Fortunately there is a new modern alternative to high maintenance timber sash windows!

UPVC sash windows 

UPVC vertical sliding sash windows retain traditional features, however they come with a raft of modern features designed with style, safety and security in mind.

We partner with Victorian Sliders who are Europe’s largest manufacturer of PVCU sash windows

ECOSlide PVCU sash windows from Victorian Sliders come in a range of styles and elegant features.  They are perfect for replacing original windows, including splayed and box bay-style windows. Bespoke units can be made for arched and swept head windows.

Extra design options such as internal Georgian bars or exterior Astragal bars can be chosen to complete the look of your UPVC sash windows.

UPVC sash windows only require a quick wipe down with a cloth for maintenance.  The windows feature a tilt facility to allow easy cleaning from inside, ideal for multi-storey windows on Georgian homes.

Heritage details 

The sash windows we install come with authentic details such as Astragal bars, sash horns and original style operating features like sash lifts and pole eyes.

Colour options range from white to natural woodgrains and Anthracite Grey to Chartwell Green. However, if a bespoke shade is needed we offer a custom colour match service.

Toughened glass comes as standard for safety and security.  If a window is located in a bathroom or toilet customers can choose from a range of privacy glass. Travel restrictors and security bars increase security and above all help prevent break-ins.

In conclusion, UPVC sliding sash windows make a perfect choice when needing to replace old timber units.
