By the start of the twentieth century and the dawn of the Edwardian era, sash windows reached their peak, in terms of their popularity and their elegance and style.
By this stage, the most fashionable sash window design was the ‘six panes over two panes’ configuration, reviving Georgian style and Victorian technology, to produce a final product with the same classic aesthetics but including much larger glass panes, thus letting in more light.
However, Edwardian joiners faced the same problem as the Victorians. Large glass panels with fewer astragal bars to support them added extra strain to sash joints. Like the Victorians, they overcame this with sash horns, which allowed them to build large, strong, rigid sashes. In turn, they created a simple, yet effective style of sliding sash window.
Here at Roseview, we offer the market’s finest Edwardian windows. If you’re looking for the most authentic, traditional aesthetics, you should look no further than our stunning Rose Collection profiles. Our flagship model, the Ultimate Rose, is manufactured using an industry exclusive process that delivers completely indistinguishable aesthetics compared with real timber. You can renovate an Edwardian property without compromising on period charm.
Original Edwardian windows were not good thermally. Back then, all windows were made with single glazing and would offer very little resistance to heat trying to escape the property. On the flip side, our Roseview Edwardian windows come with innovative thermal enhancements. They are fitted with double glazing as standard, which is supported by a multi-chambered profile. You maintain period aesthetics while also getting the heat retention of market leading uPVC windows.
At Roseview, one of our proudest achievements has been faithfully replicating that much-loved sash horn. With the Rose Collection, it was our aim to reproduce these stunning sash windows down to the finest details. However, we wanted to use maintenance-free uPVC rather than timber. In doing this, it means you can spend more time enjoying your stunning sash windows, and less time tending to them. In comparison, timber windows will need renovation and re-finishing every four to six years.
The epitome of our design philosophy, each Ultimate Rose window is painstakingly detailed and virtually indistinguishable from a classic timber sash.
