Replicating authentic timber windows – Can uPVC sliding sash windows do justice?
Authentic timber windows have a unique yet classic style and individual character. They are found in period properties across the UK and have become a part of the national heritage. Unfortunately, over time, they start to deteriorate from becoming thermally inefficient, posing security risks, chipping and rotting and many more issues that give homeowners headaches.
But when the time comes to get a sash window replacement, you can count on the Rose Collection to truly replicate authentic timber windows and fit different period styles of homes. Our range includes three different sash window styles: Ultimate Rose, Heritage Rose and Charisma Rose.
With their woodgrain foil finishes, our uPVC sliding sash windows are highly indistinguishable from authentic timber windows. As well as having advanced performance due to being made from robust uPVC profiles. This expert guide discusses whether our uPVC sliding sash windows do justice when it comes to timber sash window replacement. Read on to find out more.
