Are virtually maintenance free and easy to clean. Apart from the odd wipe down with soapy water every now and then, once your replacement windows are installed you won’t have to worry about treating them like you do with certain wooden varieties of windows that can swell and rot. uPVC windows will never need to be painted, is an extremely thermally efficient material and can provide your home with greater heat insulation than aluminium and wood windows can. For a modern home that consists of many modern fittings and features, uPVC is likely to be your best option as it will maintain the style of the property. Perhaps one of the main reasons that so many people opt for uPVC windows is that they are usually cheaper to buy than aluminium and wood windows.
Are more versatile than uPVC and aluminium windows. In being able to paint, varnish and make wood windows any size and colour that you want, you have greater freedom over the style and overall look of your home with windows that are made from wood. Wood windows arguably look more refined, sophisticated and ‘tasteful’ than uPVC windows and aluminium options. If your home is an old, traditional and rustic property then opting for wood windows will help retain your home’s character and appeal. As wood is considered to be a sustainable building material because it is derived from a renewable source, installing wood windows will mean you are diminishing your carbon footprint more than if you opt for uPVC windows.
Are structurally the strongest type of window and are much stronger than uPVC windows. In this sense, windows made from aluminium will not sag in the sash no matter how heavy the insulated glass is, unlike uPVC windows where this can sometime pose as a problem. As you can paint aluminium windows, similar to windows made from wood, you have greater freedom over the style of your window so that you can create a more defined look in your home.
A sash window or hung sash window is made of one or more movable panels, or "sashes", that form a frame to hold panes of glass, which are often separated from other panes. Although any window with this style of glazing is technically a sash, the term is used almost exclusively to refer to windows where the glazed panels are opened by sliding vertically, or horizontally in a style known as a "Yorkshire light" or sliding sash.
The sash window is often found in Georgian and Victorian houses, and the classic arrangement has three panes across by two up on each of two sash, giving a six over six panel window, although this is by no means a fixed rule. Innumerable late Victorian and Edwardian houses were built in England using standard sash window units approximately 4 feet in width, but older, hand-made units could be of any size.
Constructed in uPVC, Aluminium or classic wood, we're happy to create made to measure solutions for your home, old or new.
Is a window that is attached to its frame by one or more hinges. Casement windows are hinged at the side. They are used singly or in pairs within a common frame, in which case they are hinged on the outside. Casement windows are often held open using a casement stay. Windows hinged at the top are referred to as awning windows, and ones hinged at the bottom are called hoppers.
Advantages of casement windows are:
Variety of design features. Casement windows offer a number of attractive design features such as French, flat top, pushout, top down grille, colonial grill, prairie grill, and no grill. They can be customised for precise size and desired colour, and they look attractive in a number materials. Typical casement window materials include wood, aluminium or uPVC.
Second most efficient window. Casement windows are the second most energy-efficient, after fixed-pane windows. The window sash presses against the frame on closing, creating an airtight seal. This helps prevent air entry and leakage.
Easy to open and close. Because they use single-lever latches or tandem latches, casement windows are easy to open and close. Most models can also be fitted for automatic openers.
Excellent ventilation. Casement windows open all the way outward. Unlike double-hung windows, which are closed on top, casement windows are wide open from top to bottom and side-to-side providing excellent natural ventilation and light.
Disadvantages of casement windows are:
Size limitations. Casement windows are designed to open outward. Because of the design, the windows can’t be too large or too heavy. The opening has to be strong enough to support the window, so we would recommend smaller and more lightly constructed windows.
