It’s easy to dismiss uPVC double glazing as a standard one size fits all, but there is a lot more choice in the available styles of windows then you might realise. We all have individual tastes, and these are reflected in the way that we decorate our homes and in the choices we make about double glazing. Below we will examine three types of uPVC windows that can be suitable for various architectural styles.
Georgian Bar windows
Georgian Bar windows represent an opportunity for people with older properties to conserve the authentic look of their building. There are a host of ranges within the Georgian style, each complementary to older properties.
The Georgian Bar connects to the spacer that sits between the two panes of glass. The overall effect is that the bars blend seamlessly into the window frame to capture the look of a traditional Georgian house; although you won’t find too many of these in Milton Keynes.
Casement windows are incredibly versatile and therefore, one of the most popular styles. They work well with expansive properties with grand hallways or spacious dining areas due to the amount of light they let in.
One of the features of Casement windows is the dual friction stays. These are hinges that fixed to the side or top of the frame, allow the window to open from the bottom or side for increased ventilation and easy cleaning.
Tilt and Turn
Tilt and Turn windows allow you to control the flow of ventilation in a room. By tilting the window only slightly, you can allow hot air to escape while ensuring any strong breezes remain outside. Similarly to Casement windows, Tilt and Turn style enable light to flood in through the glass to illuminate your home.
