At Droylsden Glass, we install high performing uPVC vertical sliding sash windows for homeowners across Greater Manchester and the northwest of England. If you live in the local area, we can help you to transform your home with the highest quality uPVC vertical sliders available today.

Vertical sliding sash windows are synonymous with period properties. Used extensively during the Victorian era, these original timber sliding sash windows were the inspiration for our modern uPVC versions.

Our uPVC vertical sliding sash windows combine the convenient functionality and attractive appearance of original timber sash windows with all the benefits of modern technology. They are an excellent choice for installations in all property types, so whatever type of house you call home, uPVC vertical sliders will be the perfect fit.

Conservation area approved uPVC sliding sash windows

Although our uPVC vertical sliders are compatible with both modern and traditional homes, they remain a popular choice for homeowners living in UK conservation areas. A conservation area is an area of special architectural character and historical interest. Properties located in conservation areas are governed by stricter planning controls when it comes to making alterations.

All works carried out on a conservation area property must be in keeping with the area’s specific character and the property’s architectural style. Fortunately, our uPVC vertical sliding sash windows have been accepted for use in conservation areas across northwest England. It’s always a good idea to check with your local authority before you start a glazing replacement project, but in most cases, approval will be granted when you choose the right windows.

A+ energy efficiency rated uPVC vertical sliding sash windows

One of the main reasons why homeowners choose to upgrade their windows is to improve their home’s thermal performance capacity. Draughty windows can have a big impact on heat escaping from your home and cause your home heating bills to skyrocket. With modern energy efficient replacements, you can create a warmer interior living environment and save money on reduced heating bills.

With uPVC vertical sliding sash windows from Droylsden Glass, you can be sure that your home’s thermal performance will be the best it can be. When you’re selecting your new windows, you can opt for a Warm Edge Spacer bar version to maximise thermal performance. The Warm Edge Spacer bar reduces heat loss through your windows and enables your new windows to achieve a maximum A+ Window Energy Rating (WER).
