Period windows

What are wooden period windows?

With its rich history spanning centuries, the UK has some beautiful properties that characterise traditional style. Period properties typically date back to the 1400s and early 1900s and feature Georgian, Tudor, and Victorian characteristics. As the buildings age, renovating them and restoring their former glory is advisable—enter period windows. Unlike other styles, period windows are designed to align with a period property's style while incorporating modern features, including glazing bars and toughened glass. Many period window styles also align with the restrictions on listed buildings, adding substance to ever-popular styles.

The key characteristics of timber period windows:

  • Authenticity: These wooden windows replicate traditional styles, using frames and panes seamlessly blending in with the property.
  • Glazing bars: Many period windows utilise glazing bars, allowing for the functionality of new windows but creating smaller panes - in line with traditional style.
  • Detailing: Every period property has unique details that make it stand out. Wooden windows follow suit with small decorative features that bring history to life.
  • Energy efficiency: Available with double or triple glazing and other features, period windows maintain aesthetic appeal but reduce your reliance on gas and electricity.

The benefits of timber windows for period properties

Whether you’re looking for new or replacement windows, opting for period styles means you don’t have to compromise. Modern windows and doors are fine for new builds, but adding them to a character building can negatively impact the aesthetic.

Investing in these windows offers homeowners many benefits.

No sacrifices

There are uPVC windows in the period style, but nothing beats timber. Many period properties used timber windows for their original style, and the material continues to be one of the most sought-after in Europe.

Adding timber period windows to your property means you can choose from infinite styles and maintain curb appeal rather than settling for less attractive options.

Preserving history

Period properties dating back to the 1400s and even earlier are full of character and history. Each has a story, but many lose their charm due to renovations. Period windows elevate the property’s style while also protecting its heritage.

If you own a listed building, the windows also align with the regulations in place, ensuring you benefit from functionality while keeping the building’s history alive.

Customisation options

Older windows typically use one pane of glass, making them less effective than modern double and triple-glazing options. Period windows are designed to maintain the same design but accommodate additional features, including superior glazing and security.

Many also come with further options, including toughened and coloured glass, giving you more flexibility.

The types of period windows available

With so many style-defining eras in the UK, period windows deliver versatility. They come in a range of styles, combining timber window frames with secure glass for a long-term investment in your property.

Georgian style windows

Beginning in the early 18th Century, the Georgian period is known for neoclassical architecture, which still exists in some homes today. Georgian-style windows incorporate features that exude elegance and offer timeless style.

Victorian style windows

Renowned for its transportation, industry and architectural innovations, the Victorian period combined older window styles with unique details to create ornate finishes. Advances in glass manufacturing also allowed for flexibility in glass pane sizes and styles.
