Many traditional British houses still retain the original wooden sliding box sash windows and to enable customers who want to maintain the traditional appearance of their homes, Select Windows offer a PVCu vertical sliding window which although it looks similar, will out-perform the older traditional box sash windows.
An authentic appearance, which is enhanced by decorative horns, reflects the elegant looks of the original window, whilst incorporating high levels of performance and durability of modern window designs.
Anyone with original sash windows will at some point have experienced difficulties opening and closing them as years of painting and the natural ageing process of the wood causes the sashes to bind against the frames.
