Vertical sliding windows are a feature of many of the UK's distinguished older properties and other buildings and have not been easy to replace when they fall into a state of uneconomic repair.
UPVc has traditionally been regarded as unsuitable because it has not before captured the real 'look' of the original designs. Today however there are new vertical sliding windows which not only have the design details of traditional windows, but are so similar that they may even be specified in areas where only like for like specifications will meet local planning requirements. The Classic vertical slider has been developed in response to this need.
Another great feature of Upvc sash windows is that not only do they go up and down like traditional sash windows but they also tilt inwards. This feature allows you to clean the outside of your windows from the inside – good idea!
Whilst there is no guarantee against condensation,Upvc windows dramatically reduce the likelihood of condensation compared to traditional wooden sash windows. The safety features on Upvc windows are also a vast improvement on traditional sash windows. With the latest in multi-lock technology and the benefits of toughened glass double glazing it will be much more challenging for any would-be burglar to break into your property.
Specifying a like for like replacement, especially in a sensitive area, leaves many architects and specifiers at a loss to find something of the right calibre. Indeed, many are averse to selecting anything other than timber because of the fear of not being able to find designs that capture the aesthetic appeal of the originals in any other material.
