A house full of white Sash windows

To this day, sash windows still remain an elegant part of history in the UK. A feature of many Victorian and Georgian properties, sliding sash windows are a charming reminder of the past, now capable of providing all of the benefits modern uPVC has to offer. Truly a classic window style, sash windows may have been used for hundreds of years, but that doesn’t mean that modern properties need go without.

Complete with such traditional features as deep bottom rails, authentic ironmongery and optional astragal bars, sliding sash windows from Albany help add a touch of traditional elegance to any style of property, historical or modern.

A piece of history for any home in Gloucestershire

If you find yourself living in a Victorian or Edwardian-style property, it’s likely that they’re glazed using timber sash windows. As a result, you may be finding it tedious, constantly performing regular maintenance to ensure that they are looking good and operating smoothly as the day they were originally installed, so many years ago.

Thanks to the modern developments made to uPVC, it’s possible for even the most contemporary of properties to benefit from the authentic visuals sash windows are able to provide, especially considering their high energy rating of ‘A+’. Our advanced replication techniques make for state-of-the-art sash windows that mean homes of any style can benefit from a piece of history.

Perfectly authentic and easy to open

Whereas some of the older sash windows were stiff and hard to open, Albany Windows’ uPVC sash windows incorporate a counterbalanced system to ensure that they never fail to operate efficiently and smoothly. This is achieved without ever compromising on the classic appeal of a timber slider, you can assure your desired room is instantly well ventilated in one effortless sliding function.

An aesthetic indistinguishable from timber

If you thought replacement uPVC sash windows would compromise your aesthetics if you’re living in a period property, think again! As well as classic white, our sash windows are available in a range of heritage colours and wood-effect finishes to always maintain the building’s overall character and personality.

Remember, if your home is more contemporary in style, our selection of sash windows can also complement your home, boasting clean lines and a timeless elegance. Just because sliding sashes have their roots in the 18th century, doesn’t mean they have to look as such. Albany Windows provide a range of bold and distinct colours, you can even have a different colour on the inside and outside of your windows.
