Enhanced Curb-Appeal with Flush Windows

Traditionally, flush windows were commonly used on original timber framed windows, a testament to their long-standing appeal and functionality. This window style is distinctive in that the sash sits flush in the frame, creating a sleek and streamlined appearance.


This is in stark contrast with a standard window where the sash sits on top of the frame, creating a different aesthetic and functional profile.


The flush style creates an elegant and consistent look across the whole window. This uniformity is maintained irrespective of which sections of the window are designed to open or remain fixed, contributing to its aesthetic appeal.


The popularity of flush windows is on the rise, not just with traditional timber frames, but also with other frame materials including UPVC and aluminium. This highlights their versatility and wide-ranging appeal.


They are now often referred to as timber alternative or heritage style windows, an acknowledgement of their historical roots and their ability to emulate the classic charm of timber.


UPVC framed windows can be further enhanced with a wood grain finish and authentic timber-like joints, adding to their resemblance to traditional timber windows. Further authenticity can be achieved through the addition of dummy stays and ornate monkey tail handles, which can produce the ultimate heritage style appearance, a nod to historical window styles.
