We stock a wide range of colours and styles of windows to meet the needs of every customer. With so many products to choose from, some people can feel a little overwhelmed. However, we believe that having plenty of choices on offer is the best way for our customers to secure a style that will suit their property best. To help you make the right decision, we’ve created a handy guide which details the benefits of each window style we have on offer.
A casement window has hinges at the side. This allows you to open them outwards to let in fresh air without bringing in rain or dirt. Because the opening mechanism allows you to swing the panel wide open, they allow maximum airflow into your home. Their ease of operation and simple aesthetics makes them a very popular choice in all manner of homes. With toughened glass and handles fitted with key locks, they’re also secure and energy efficient. uPVC casement windows come in a huge range of colours that are easy to clean and maintain.
Sometimes known as sash, vertical sliding windows have a timeless appeal and are often well-suited on heritage buildings. To bring this style into the 21st century, the frames can be made with modern uPVC in styles that mimic aluminium and timber. Operation is easy, you simply slide each sash up and down to let in the breeze. Because the frames slide against each other, they won’t take up any additional space when opened.
Bay & Bow
Bay windows are ideally suited to homes with fantastic views and impressive sized rooms. However, there’s no limit to where they can be used. If you want to let in plenty of light, add kerb appeal and create the illusion of extra space, a bay window is sure to meet your needs.
The definition of a bay window is glazing that protrudes outwards from the building. Because it comes outwards, it introduces light from many different angles. This makes your home appear brighter. What’s more, the additional panels required to create a bay set-up means that you can fit more openings to introduce more ventilation.
Bow windows are very similar to bay. The main difference is that a bow set-up has the appearance of a gentle curve, whereas bay is more angled without protruding corners.
