Timber or PVC Sash Windows

At sashwindows.ie we supply timber sash windows in a treated soft wood, with the trade name of “Accoya”. This timber is guaranteed against rot for 50 years and is well worth checking out on Google. We also supply the “Heritage” slim-line PVC sash window and an aluminium sash window called “Alutherm”

Replacement Timber windows

When replacing windows in a “Protected Structure”, it is now a requirement of planning law, that only designs, identical to the originals, can be used, once permission has been sought and granted by the Local Authority.

Even where there is no “protected structure” issue, many people are so fond of the ‘look and feel’ of timber, that timber it must be, whatever about the maintenance bother.

In “protected” buildings even the weights and cords must be reinstated. In less sensitive buildings a more modern spring system can be used, if required.

“Heritage” PVC windows

While not having the ‘look and feel’ of timber, the new generation of slimline PVC sash windows certainly improve on the sad PVC window image of yesterday. You can clearly see this in these ‘before and after’ photos: the left picture is of a timber original Victorian window (in Dublin) and the right picture is its “Heritage” PVC replacement.

Aluminium sash windows

We supply aluminium sash windows mainly to the commercial market, particularly where a specifier has a preference for that material and also where colour choice is required.
