ABOUT REPLACEMENT WINDOWS
When choosing replacement windows you need to consider whether it is important that the appearance of the building is maintained. Often the motive for installing replacement windows will be to improve insulation by using double or triple glazing. Particularly if made of UPVC, these used to look very different from original wooden sash or casement timber windows. It is now possible to obtain double-glazed replacement windows in UPVC, timber, aluminium and steel, which give good insulation but also retain the original appearance. Some allow both sides to be cleaned from inside. Leading UK suppliers of replacement windows are profiled below the panel of sponsored links.

Crittall: Replacement Windows. Crittall, based in Witham, Essex, has been making metal windows since 1884. Its steel windows, with their narrow frames and narrow glazing bars, became very popular in the 1930s. With the passage of time such windows have tended to become rusted and leaky. Crittall now offers a much improved steel window which retains the look of the original, but is double glazed, draught-proof, and resistant to rust. These replacement windows, known as the Homelight range, are made of steel which is galvanized and powder coated. This eliminates the need for regular re-painting, and reduces the risk of rust. Properly maintained, Crittall replacement steel windows can be expected to last the life of the building. Crittal suggest that after ten to twenty years the steel replacement windows may need a decorative re-coat using a standard undercoat/top coat alkyd system.
