If you want your London residence to be equipped with sash windows that are long-lasting and easy to maintain, our dedicated teamcan fit uPVC sash windows in your choice of design.
It’s all part of our bespoke service that lets you benefit from the structural resilience of uPVC but have it provided to a tailored design that suits your period or modern property.
While our traditional uPVC sliding sash windows look like traditional wood, they are easier to maintain and built like contemporary sash windows, right down to a flip function for facilitating regular cleaning.
We cover the uPVC with a foil depicting the wood grain effect of genuine timber. Meanwhile, each window comes with mechanical joints resembling those of an actual timber window.
We know that your period home could be located in a conservation area where it would be vital for the property to be preserved in its traditional aesthetics.
This is why we offer to manufacture heritage uPVC sliding sash windows that, with design features like a deep bottom rail and run-through sash horns, emulate traditional timber box sash windows.
This is the cheapest type of glazing we can install in a sash window.
Our double glazing options include Slimlite glass, which is visually akin to single glazing.
By adding a third layer of glazing, you can even further improve your home’s insulation.
We can produce stained glass in a stunning design that, once on your window, will draw admiration.

That difference is primarily in how the windows are operated. Basically, sash windows are slid open or closed, while casement windows are opened or closed on hinges.
Though sash windows typically open by sliding vertically, some slide horizontally instead. Meanwhile, casement windows usually open outwards, though some open inwards instead.

If you have only recently heard of these terms, you could understandably be confused by them. However, “double hung” basically just means that both of the window’s glazed panels – the “sashes” – are movable, unlike the case with “single hung” sash windows, where just one sash is movable.
A double hung sash window would make it easier for you to ventilate your home, as you would be able to open up more of the window and thus let more fresh air flow into the room.

All the same, we also offer actual wooden sash windows for an even more authentic touch.
We have strong faith in the resilience of uPVC, as borne out by the test of time in various other situations where uPVC windows have been installed.
