There’s no denying that much of the appeal brought with original timber frames is their classically timeless look. One major drawback, however, was always the vast amounts of upkeep required to keep them stylish and authentic. Enter Albion Windows’ eclectic range of heritage windows, specifically designed to deliver modern performance benefits with the historical aesthetics of true timber. Do they much up to the originals though? Let’s find out:
Subtle authentic details that replicate 19th century timber
One of the most important elements to any authentic uPVC window system seeking to replicate the feel of real wood, is without question all the little slight details. From authentic butt hinges, integrated sash horns, to distinguishing astragal bar layouts, today it’s easy to tweak how authentic you wish your new wood-effect windows to be depending on what you choose to leave off and what to leave on the table.
Our range of heritage frames give homeowners the ability to incorporate all these elements and more, along with a host of convincing wood-effect finishes like Vintage Rosewood, Eternal Oak, and Natural Oak. Especially when fitted as either a classic window style like casement or sliding sash, even up-close people will struggle to identify the difference.
The low-maintenance alternative suitable for rural homes
As alluded to earlier, modern heritage windows not only match up to original timber frames, but actually improve upon them by way of performance, convenience, and security. Heritage windows can offer A-rated energy efficiency levels to keep heating bills low and costs down, while standard multi-point locking works to dissuade potential invaders and still not disrupt the impressively natural aesthetic.
On top of this, the need to varnish, re-paint, and just generally pay close attention to your house’s window frames goes out the window with Heritage frames thanks to uPVC’s low maintenance sensibilities. The material is highly flexible when compared to the inherent rigidity of timber, therefore making it a breeze to simply wipe down any present dirt that might arise on the odd occasion. For reasons such as this and more, heritage windows from Albion suit both rural and contemporary properties.
