Why Choose Georgian Windows?

If you’re looking to update the exterior of your home but you want to retain its traditional character and improve thermal efficiency, then a Georgian window is ideal for you!

Surrey is known for its classic properties, making the Georgian style window the ideal choice for many of our clients. Whether you’re looking to replace your current Georgian windows or bring their ageless style to your property, we can help you.

What are Georgian style windows?

Georgian windows come from one of the most respected periods of architectural history. It’s a classic style of window, and even today, is extremely popular among homeowners. Georgian window systems normally follow the pattern of ‘six over six’, meaning six panes sit on another six in each window. Each pane being separated by a Georgian bar or a metal bar.

Georgian windows are full of character and are expertly manufactured for an authentic look. With excellent insulation qualities and very little maintenance required, they are the perfect solution for those who require traditional windows without the maintenance required for a period wooden Georgian window. Although they were previously made from wood, they’re now typically constructed with uPVC. uPVC offers affordability, durability, and the option of an authentic woodgrain effect.

Choose Your Georgian Style: Georgian Bar or Astragal Windows

The Georgian style describes the classic gridded windowpane. Today, this can be achieved in two ways:

  • With a double glazed bar window; where an internal bar is located between the glazing.
  • With an astragal bar window; the bars are externally planted on one pane of glass to give the impression of individual pieces of glass being sealed together.

Due to their historic style, these are instant choices for those customers who own an older property and want to keep the period charm. We can fit Georgian windows in an array of finishes, helping these windows blend seamlessly into your period property.

We have an experienced team of fitters who have been installing Georgian windows since 1972, so whatever your requirements, you can guarantee that we will be able to meet them for you!
