Sarah Starkey, Sales Development Director at Stevenswood, explains how a timeless window design can still add real value to a home.
As Yazz’s 1988 #1 hit record put it, “the only way is up.” That song probably now classes as a ‘golden oldie’ and vertical sliding sash and case windows certainly do. They’ve been around since the 17th century and were the builders’ window of choice for centuries.
That means there are a lot of sash windows out there and there’s a big market for bringing them up to date. Replacing them is vital to improve energy efficiency and security, but it’s equally important (and sometimes the law) to keep that traditional style.
That’s where our range of VEKA vertical sliding sash windows comes in. They look exactly like traditional timber sash windows, making them ideal for heritage retrofits such as listed buildings. But with PVCu construction, double glazing and the latest locks, they also meet all current standards.
That’s a great package for customers who need to combine classic looks with modern functionality, even before you consider the VEKA range’s fuss-free installation and ease of maintenance.
All of this is backed by a range of colour and woodgrain options to ensure that windows match the building perfectly, while a choice of cills and horns provides further scope to personalise the job.
