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.

High-performance uPVC sliding sash windows Rotherham

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.

Sophisticated Anthracite Grey on white sliding sash windows

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.

After:

Interior and exterior view of windows

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.

Exterior and interior view of new windows

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.

What does the customer say?

“Really happy with the work and the windows fitted. Wasn’t a straightforward job being an old house, but the team were great, very professional and dealt with all the issues the old house produced. Wouldn’t use anyone else for my windows.”

Brilliant company from all we’ve dealt with, right through to the fitters, to the follow-up emails making sure everything was ok. Having used you before and after having work done to my property, I thought you the only obvious choice to return. Was a little worried as I’d had insulated render fitted and was concerned about the removal and refitting into the same size opening, and the damage it would cause. No worries, it seems. Each to their own trade as they say, and I’m glad they managed it and left me in no doubt, another great job done. Many thanks to you all. And see you in 15 years again?

After a fair few months of looking for a good window provider we can say we are one hundred percent happy with Global. They exceeded our expectations from start to finish. Michael with the quote, the lovely ladies from the office and Andy and Josh who fitted our seven windows and front door. Very professional, good quality, quick and efficient work. A pleasure to work with such a team. Our next step is the conservatory with Global. Thank you and well done to all.

Excellent Service

My mum wanted to say thank you so much for the fantastic service Global windows have given her following her burglary. From start to finish they reassured her the replacement patio doors would be robust and fitted as quickly as possible to ensure the property was secured. On the day of fitting the fitters arrived promptly and installed the doors with no mess. The gentleman who organised this from Global (sorry she couldn’t remember his name) came out to check the doors and to see mum was happy with them brought her a beautiful bunch of flowers. Mum was over the moon. Thank you so much.

We decided to re-use this Company despite moving house and County. Global were helpful and very professional at all stages of the installation. We found all their staff friendly and knowledgeable. Dates given, returning phone calls etc. were all met. The price was very competitive, the quality of their products was excellent with a good range of colours and styles. The fitters were very hardworking, managed to get the work done in one day rather than the expected 2, mainly due to the fact they worked as a team, didn’t take breaks and clearly knew their job. Great company.
