Windows

Windows and window accessories; single glazed, double glazed.

Windows and window openings are used to provide light, ventilation and, of course, a view to the outside world. Windows come in innumerable styles and designs including side hung windows, sliding windows, top hung windows, box sash, and many more.

Window accessories such as awnings, shutters and louvres can help add style and security to a window opening. The right window can help improve a buildings thermal mass, through the selection of double glazing, the right window seal and the type of window frame.

Window repair and refurbishment are often more cost effective and appropriate solutions, especially in period properties or listed buildings. Damage can be fixed without complete replacement of the window, sympathetic to the style and fabric of the building. Modern innovations in materials and techniques help improve thermal and sound insulation, safety and longevity of older windows.

This section provides a comprehensive list of manufacturers, distributors and installers of windows and window accessories, in a variety of materials to meet your specifications.
