Thermally efficient, competitively priced and easy to maintain, uPVC became the most popular material for replacement windows in the 1980s. It now accounts for almost 75% of the 12 million windows installed in British homes every year. But while they excel in many areas, conventional uPVC casement windows seriously lack the good looks of sliding sash windows.
To compound the problem, many properties that were designed to house sash windows had their original windows taken out, in favour of modern uPVC “mock sash” casements. People were wowed by the low-maintenance, security and most of all warmth of modern uPVC windows, forgetting all about the aesthetics in the process.
Now, many homeowners are looking to reinstate the classic looks and heritage appeal of their properties by installing new sash windows. By choosing premium uPVC sash windows, it’s possible to restore a house’s traditional appearance, all the while retaining the high thermal and acoustic performance of uPVC frames.
