Sliding sash windows

Suppliers and expert installers of traditional sliding sash windows, vertical AND horizontal sliders, from 300 year old design timber windows with historic glass and lead sash weights to A rated PVCu conservation grade replicas and modern new build equivalents.

As sliding sash experts we cover a very wide area, based in Oswestry, Shropshire we’ve worked from Chester in the north down to Leominster in the south, from Dolgellau in West Wales to Market Drayton and Nantwich in the East. We really do get to see a lot of Shropshire fitting sliding sash windows!

As you’d expect from a company with a lot of experience we also offer a lot of options, if you’re fortunate enough to own a listed building and one or all of the current sliding sash windows are considered beyond repair then we can offer you 300 year old design timber replicas, pre-finished with either modern microporous paints or simply basecoated for finishing later. Installed using traditional burnt sand mastic with any localised lime mortar / brickwork repairs carried out as required by our experienced lime work builders.

If you simply want to retain the character of timber and don’t mind the maintenance that comes with it then we can offer a modernised version of the listed sash window with draught seals and slim unit double glazing or even a modern version with spring balances and double glazing, again pre-finished in your choice of paint and installed using traditional methods whenever required.

If you want the look of sliding sash windows, but none of the maintenance then we offer three! different versions of that too. Made by Roseview windows, their Rehau heritage profile PVCu sliding sash window is as good as it gets and is frequently mentioned by name by conservation officers and architects as being THE window as far as non timber sash windows go. As authorised installers for Roseview windows, you’ll be dealing with a company that is not only familiar with the product but also installs them on a regular basis.

The first is the Ultimate Rose, a traditional carpentry technique mechanically jointed window incorporating the all important run through horn, manufactured from a woodgrain coated PVCu plastic. Passed by numerous conservation officers as a suitable replacement in sensitive areas the Ultimate really is the ultimate modern day alternative and even available in “Secured by design” specification for vulnerable areas. After the Ultimate we have the Heritage Rose, the same window but in the gloss finish PVCu we all know so well as being modern plastic but again with mechanical jointing where required and hidden welds where nesessary.

When it comes to sliding sash windows it really does pay to speak to us before making a bad choice, we really are the experts, if you don’t already know your deep bottom rail from your run through horn then please ask.

Our phone calls, emails and even quotations are free and hold you under no obligation whatsoever to buy anything, that’s simply how we do business.
