An Introduction To uPVC Sash Windows
uPVC sash windows are exactly what they sound like – a traditional-style sash window constructed from uPVC rather than timber.
uPVC sash windows offer the same elegant looks as their timber equivalents but with many advantages. They are energy efficient. Here at Majestic Windows, for example, our sash windows are A+14 energy rated as standard. They are easy to maintain too – no sanding down or repainting required.
We fit uPVC sash windows all over Somerset and are suitable for many types of properties.
uPVC sash windows in listed homes and conservation areas
If you live in a listed home or in a house in a conservation area, strict rules apply about what you can and can’t do to your property. When it comes to the windows, this can be problematic. Timber sash windows may be authentic but when they reach the end of their purposeful life they are draughty and difficult to use. You want to have the benefit of modern double glazing but you also want to retain the elegant beauty of your home’s windows. Sash windows are the perfect solution because they give you the best of both worlds.
We work with many customers who live in houses like these to help them balance modern living standards with the aesthetic requirements that their heritage properties demand.
uPVC sash windows in period homes
Many Victorian and Edwardian homes would have had timber sash windows originally but over time they’ve been replaced with standard uPVC casement windows. At the time, this would have made perfect sense. Double glazing offers a multitude of benefits over standard single glazed timber windows.
But these days, you don’t have to make a choice between energy efficiency and authentic looks. You can use uPVC sash windows to have the benefit of energy efficiency and security and restore the beautiful heritage looks of your home at the same time. We find many of our customers are choosing to do exactly this.
uPVC sash windows in modern homes
When you first think about sash windows, you probably think about a traditional home. But sash windows are a design classic that work well in a building of any age. As evidence of this, many of our customers chose to have uPVC sash windows in their new build homes. They add an extra level of visual interest, especially when they’re in a modern shade such as Anthracite Grey.
