Sliding Sash Windows
Steeped in history and prestige – Sash Windows are considered by many to be the most elegant Windows available on the market.

Yet despite their beauty, Timber Windows brought with them issues such as rotting, peeling and rattling – problems that the modern world has little patience for.
In the 1980s PVC-u Sash Windows entered the market. Although they provided homeowners with a low-maintenance, easy-to-clean, simple-to-use Sash Window, they lacked the eye-catching, classic appeal of the 18th century original.
Both Heritage Rose and Charisma Rose now come with an authentic run-through Sash horn option, extending the period charm of these premium Sash Windows even further.
