The Beauty Of Heritage Windows: What Are They?

The Beauty Of Heritage Windows: What Are They?

Carefully crafted using traditional techniques, heritage windows are commonly chosen as a replacement window for restoring and renovating a 19th or 20th century home.

Older homes that come under ‘Listed’ or residences located inside a conversation area, have strict rules to adhere to. Required by law, planners for replacement window projects impose strict rules on these kinds of properties to ensure it uphold’s the traditional look of the building.

Heritage windows are generally accepted by planners as a perfect replacement window because of their authentic styling.

An elevated version of period timber windows

Heritage windows are a great replacement for timber windows because they have the same authentic proportions and they can even be finished in a realistic woodgrain finish. The main difference is how better they perform!

Old timber windows can deteriorate over time, causing draughts within homes. Our heritage windows are made from UPVC and aluminium, which take far less maintenance.

With high levels of energy efficiency, Trent Valley Windows’ range of heritage windows will improve the energy efficiency of your home, resulting in cheaper heating bills and a more cosy, comfortable home, all while bringing charm and character to your home.

Our heritage window offering

If you’re interested in our heritage windows, you can choose from our flush sash windows and cottage windows – both of which are inspired by the period features of the original timber windows.

Our best-selling heritage window, the flush sash window design consists of openers that close into the frame to form a completely level finish.

Cottage windows contain Georgian bars to create an authentic cottage aesthetic. Georgian bars are a grid pattern which gives the illusion of several little glass panes, rather than one sheet of glass.
