Spoiler Alert - You Don't Have To Compromise On Heritage Properties

An old house in Wales

People who own older properties believe they have to choose expensive new windows that preserve the character of the property or go for a cheaper alternative and spoil the aesthetics - but this is not the case.

A couple who bought a 1902  double-fronted Victorian semi  in Whitland, West Wales, found themselves in the that situation. The windows in the property were old, draughty, single-glazed timber sash windows which needed replacing. To fit modern timber sash windows proved to be very expensive and the alternative, fitting PVC casements, did not appeal.

All Seasons UPVC in Milford Haven offered a solution with Victorian Sliders ECOSlide PVC-U sash windows.

Up close ECOSlide offered an appearance that matched the property and is virtually maintenance free and energy efficient. All Seasons installed eleven ECOSlide windows on the property maintaining the look of turn-of-the-century grandeur.


 “More than a fifth of the UK’s total housing stock in Britain dates back to before 1919, which means that at least one in five British houses were built at a time when sash windows were the norm.”

“With ECOSlide, we cover all bases – authentic-looking sash window products made of modern materials, that are much more cost-effective and require only minimal maintenance," adds Victorian Sliders' Jones. “That’s why three thousand installers around the country use ECOSlide to appeal to homeowners with this style of property.
