The sliding sash window, often referred to as a Georgian Window', reflecting the period when this style reached the peak of popularity, is a classic window design. It has a timeless elegance and beautiful proportions which enhance the appearance of almost any home - period or modern, town or country.

The sliding sash window was also created for highly practical reasons. It is one of the few windows that can be opened, for ventilation or easy cleaning, without intruding into the room or obstructing the exterior. It is no wonder that the vertical sliding sash window has remained a favourite design for builders and homeowners for centuries.

Unfortunately, the ravages of the British climate causes traditional timber frames to twist or warp, leading to windows "sticking", becoming difficult to open and close or, when the winds blow, the sashes can rattle in the frame creating a draughty nuisance.

And, of course, virtually all timber windows are painted or stained and require periodic maintenance ... stripping, filling, sanding, priming and re-painting. Today, PVC-u vertically sliding sash windows are made to a very high specification and require none of the maintenance associated with traditional timber frames.
