Sash windows are a traditional style of window. Commonly found in older properties, they’re usually manufactured from timber. This elegant type of window is a popular replacement in period houses, its design giving your home a sophisticated charm and style you won’t achieve from a standard casement window. Real timber windows can be expensive so home owners look to more affordable and less maintenance options such as uPVC.
Sash windows are thermally efficient and environmentally friendly which mimic the charm of a classic timber sash window, but have all the benefits of a modern uPVC system. Giving you the best of both worlds.
Whether you live in an older property or a more modern home, our uPVC sash windows are a cost-effective solution for replacing like for like replacements or alternatives to other styles. We can even install splay and 90 degree bays.
Choose from a range of colours and hardware options to complete your window and create a look that fits in perfectly with your home.

Vertical uPVC sliding sash windows are renowned for their classic design and elegant appearance and can add a touch of traditional charm to any home. Whether you are looking to replace your existing timber sash window frames, or wish to have new sliding sash windows installed entirely, the Rose Collection uPVC sliding sash windows will give you all the performance benefits of uPVC whilst being virtually indistinguishable from timber sliding sash windows.
Originally, sash windows were made using timber frames. Over time, original timber sash windows tend to present the same problems: rotting frames, rattling glazing, peeling paint and droughtiness. To combat these problems, window companies started manufacturing windows using uPVC. Modern uPVC sash windows are popular because they are energy efficient, long-lasting and basically maintenance-free. New uPVC windows are also more cost-effective than timber and can be designed to look exactly the same as traditional sliding sash windows.
Not all uPVC sliding sash windows are the same
Many heritage uPVC sash windows lack the attention to detail and quality of manufacturing needed for a truly authentic timber sash window look. The Rose Collection is a premium range of uPVC vertical sliding sash windows that are specifically designed to replicate original timber box sash windows. With their traditional design features, these uPVC sash windows are virtually indistinguishable from their timber counterparts.
uPVC vs. timber sliding sash windows
We often get asked: why choose a uPVC sash window over timber? uPVC windows have many benefits compared to timber frames: low maintenance, easy to clean, and more cost-effective than new timber windows. Some people worry that nothing can beat the look and feel of a wooden window. But we have designed the Ultimate, Heritage and Charisma Rose windows to match traditional timber styling exactly – and you won’t notice the difference.
Affordable but not “cheap” sash windows
In general, uPVC sash windows are more affordable than timber-framed alternatives. Not only that, but wooden windows can cost more to maintain over the years – due to treating and re-painting the frames every 3-8 years, making uPVC the ideal modern material for traditional properties. Rose Collection uPVC windows are available in a range of prices, from the premium Ultimate Rose window to the more cost-effective Charisma Rose. But just because our windows are cheaper, doesn’t mean they offer any less. Here are the top 5 benefits of uPVC sliding sash windows.
Traditional heritage style with the Rose Collection
It’s not just the frames and glazing that make Rose Collection windows so authentic. Our timber-replica sash windows feature period detailing such as a deep bottom rail, slim meeting stile, decorative sash horns and traditional ironmongery – as well as high-security locks. You can even choose from 6 colours and woodgrain finishes. Each of the Rose Collection sash windows can be customised to your ideal style or to fit a historic period – even achieving planning approval in conservation areas.
