Choosing the Perfect Heritage Windows For Your North East Home

February 6, 2024|News

Whether you own a charming period property in need of replacement windows or a contemporary home in need of timeless character, nothing quite beats the appeal of heritage window styles. And, thanks to modern double glazing and the development of uPVC windows, homeowners can enjoy all of the benefits of classic heritage styles with none of the drawbacks.

No matter what style you are looking for, we can help you choose the perfect windows for your North East home.

What are heritage windows and why choose them for North East homes?

REHAU Heritage VS3

Heritage windows are designed to replicate the traditional windows found in historical or period properties. Many homeowners in the North East choose these styles because of their ability to preserve the architectural style of the region’s historic homes while providing modern energy efficiency and durability.

Sliding sash windows: timeless elegance with modern performance

One of the most popular heritage window styles, sliding sash windows have been adored for decades. They still adorn Georgian and Victorian homes in conservation areas nationwide.

At Tyneside Home Improvements, our sliding sash windows are made with premium quality uPVC instead of wood, so North East homeowners can enjoy elegant aesthetics without the maintenance requirements of timber sash windows. With exceptional security, outstanding thermal efficiency and impressive durability, our uPVC sliding sash windows offer the best of both worlds.

uPVC flush sash windows: timber style without the maintenance

Flush sash windows are fast becoming one of the most popular options for homeowners in the North East. With a timeless style that harks back to timber windows of centuries past, our flush sash windows combine historic charm with the high performance of modern materials.

With a sash that sits ‘flush’ to the frame, this window style offers a clean and refined aesthetic. Heritage styles aren’t just for historic homes, however, and flush sash windows are a popular way for North East homeowners to add character and charm to modern properties.

Colours and woodgrain finishes

While all of our windows come in a range of colours, for those looking for a truly authentic heritage window style for their North East home, we offer a range of timber-effect finishes. Our range of finishes allow homeowners to enjoy the beauty of timber windows combined with the performance of uPVC!

Both our sliding sash and flush sash windows can be made with wood-grain foils, bringing a truly elegant charm to your heritage windows. Choose from a range of textured wood effects, such as striking Mahogany or classic Golden Oak for a refined finish.
