Victorian house with traditional sliding sash windows

The Victorian era was a time of great change across the UK. The Industrial Revolution instigated a wave of mass migration from the countryside to the larger towns and cities. This resulted in millions of properties being built to house both the richer middle classes and the poorer working classes. Victorian properties, therefore, encompass everything from large detached properties to small terraced homes.

Today Victorian properties are extremely sought-after for homebuyers. Their large high-ceilinged rooms and ornate architectural designs offer home owners a style not present in modern architecture. One of the distinguishing features of properties built during the Victorian era is their sash windows.

Replacement sash windows for Victorian homes

Original sash windows from the Victorian period were made using timber frames and single glazing. Even though they were built to last, they are now well over a century old, making them prone to problems. The timber frames may have been neglected and started to deteriorate but even if they are still in good condition, the single glazed glass panes will not provide the levels of thermal and acoustic insulation expected today.

When you want to improve your home’s heat retention capacity without having a negative impact on your property’s aesthetic appearance, there is a solution. uPVC sash windows from the Rose Collection are designed to faithfully replicate the classic style while bringing your home into the 21st century in terms of performance.
