If you live in a heritage home or a property within a conservation area, our uPVC sliding sash windows are an ideal choice, especially when combined with a traditional woodgrain foil finish. From Rosewood to Irish Oak, you’ll be able to enjoy the authentic look and feel of timber sliding sash benefits without any of the historical drawbacks.

The style is complemented by low maintenance qualities, meaning you’ll never need to sand, clean or varnish the frames as you would with a traditional timber sliding sash window. With a modern uPVC sliding sash from Tyneside Home Improvements smooth sliding function and operation are guaranteed.
