Types of uPVC Windows
No matter what style or shape of windows you have on your home, we can provide beautiful new uPVC windows and matching patio doors.
Casement windows are the most versatile and popular style that we install. A casement window has an outwards opening that can be wherever you wish on the window. A popular choice is the bottom half of the window fixed and the top half opening horizontally. Alternatively you could opt for the whole window pane opening vertically like a door.
Tilt and Turn Windows
With tilt and turn windows the whole pane moves. It can either tilt inwards for ventilation or can be opened like a door inwards. This type of window is often used above ground floor for safety and ease of cleaning.
Sash windows also known as Vertical Sliders are most popular as replacement windows on traditional buildings such as Edinburgh tenements.
