Window Aesthetics

Today we are spoiled for choice when it comes to replacement windows. Over the past few years window suppliers have invested heavily to produce PVC-u window systems which replicate traditional timber windows as well as much more contemporary options.

CASEMENT WINDOWS

A casement window comes in two basic options, either a storm sash or flush sash. The storm sash is the type normally fitted in most houses from sometime around the 1950’s.

This window design was developed, as the name would suggest, to provide storm proofing by overlapping the outside sash (opener) onto the window frame which helped avoid rain and wind ingress.

Prior to this most windows had a flush sash which was much less efficient in terms of weather proofing. Recent developments in PVC-u window systems has seen the reintroduction of the sash window using modern materials and manufacturing techniques which not only produces a flush sash window which performs well in all weathers but aesthetically replicates traditional styles.

Whilst PVC-u windows in the past were all very similar in terms of aesthetics and quality, the manufacturing techniques now used to produce some storm and flush sash windows means the quality and aesthetics can vary dramatically.

Some systems are still mass produced with welded corners, transoms and mullions where others are virtually fully hand made much the same way a carpenter would have done in days gone by. You can see a full range of both styles on display at our new Alresford showroom just outside Colchester.

SASH WINDOWS

The original sash window with lead weights to counterbalance the weight of the sliding sash became popular the start of the Georgian period around 1714.

The ‘Georgian bars’ were used to create smaller panes of glass due to the limitation of glass manufacturing at the time. The concept of the vertical sliding sash was designed originally to stop windows opening out onto narrow streets only later were they used in much grander buildings. For many years the PVC-u window industry has tried to replicate original timber sash windows but with limited success.

One company however leads the way and has invested heavily over many years to produce what is without question the most architecturally correct, aesthetically pleasing and highest quality PVC-u box sash window on the market.

The ‘Bygone Collection’ boasts a host of features which make it almost indiscernible from an original timber window. It has an ultra-slim mid-rail, deep bottom rail, run through sash horns, slim 18mm sealed units, traditional butt joints and a range of authentic furniture which is unsurpassed. The Bygone collection of box sash windows together with several other more cost-effective options can be seen at our new Alresford showroom just outside Colchester.
