When we think of vertical sliding sash windows, we visualize elegant British Victorian architecture that’s oozing with unique character and charm. So, when a Rotherham homeowner asked us to restore his properties’ distinctive Victorian identity, we graciously seized the opportunity with both hands!
Revitalising Rotherham Victorian window restoration
Built in 1840, Mr Windle had become disillusioned with the fact that the original windows had been replaced with substandard uPVC windows by a previous owner. Mr Windle wanted to restore the traditional look of his home, whilst capitalising on the modern performance that present-day home improvement products have to offer.

After a visit to our local window showroom in Handsworth, the quality and performance of our innovative uPVC sliding sash windows thoroughly captured Mr Windle’s attention. Eagerly ordering 7 vertical sliding sash windows, further contentment arose when the customer realised the wide range of colour finishes that were also at his disposal.

The choice of dual colour window frames provided Mr Windle with a subtle and sophisticated look on the outside, whilst re-establishing a classic Victorian appearance inside. Grey windows and doors are becoming a real favourite with homeowners throughout South Yorkshire and beyond, thanks to its neutral yet versatile qualities. We’re sure you’ll agree that Anthracite Grey is particularly striking on period properties like this; stylish yet subtle and never depreciating the original features.
As some of the replacement work was situated on the ground floor, secure locks and hardware were also important aspects to consider. Mr Windle soon realised that peace of mind comes naturally with our uPVC vertical sliders. Featuring high-performance key-operated sash locks alongside authentic sash window furniture, they provide the ultimate finishing touch.
Able to achieve U-values as low as 1.5W/m²K, the Windle family never have to worry about draughty, rattling sash windows either. They can also look forward to notable savings on their energy bills further down the line.
