What Is a Sliding Sash Window?

If you’re a homeowner wondering what a sliding sash window is, we’ve got you sorted! Sliding Sash windows utilise a design that has been loved for centuries. These windows offer the perfect space-saving solution, and unlike other designs, the panes slide upon one another. This allows you to make full use of the space around the window. 

Sliding Sash windows are ideal for older properties that need to replace old timber windows. The homeowner can enjoy the timber look without the same high maintenance issues wood provides. Instead, you’ll enjoy all the benefits associated with modern uPVC.
