Micron traditional replacement sash windows
Traditional solid wooden sash windows suffer from many problems including twisting, rotting and rattling in the wind due to the continuous expansion and contraction of the timber due to rain, sun and cold. These issues can be repaired by experienced craftsmen, but all to often the costs involved are prohibative or just plain expensive! Well maintained sash windows will last many years, even decades without needing major parts replaced. However, many savy sash owners have replaced the old wood windows with new generation uPVC replacements.
A significant advantage of sash windows is that they provide efficient cooling of interiors during warm weather. Opening both the top and bottom of a sash window by equal amounts allows warm air at the top of the room to escape, thus drawing relatively cool air from outside into the room through the bottom opening. With a Micron UPVC unit, the beautiful featured frame, bead and Georgian Bar of the sash window fully integrates with any other replacement window in our range - allowing you to mix and match styles throughout your house with ease. While sash windows are classically traditional, our uPVC units will seamlessly blend with more contemporary profiles in your home. Our sash windows slide up and down, and also both inwardly tilt for ease of cleaning and ventilation.
For many customers, the character and charm of a vertical sliding ‘sash’ window is simply unrivalled. Originally, this style of window was made from hard or softwood timber, but our UPVC alternatives match practicality with charm and are low maintenance, secure and thermally efficient. A vertically sliding window features two sashes which each tilt inwards independently of one another, and slide upwards and downwards as required.
