For many homeowners, the original windows form an integral part of the character of their property. From sliding sash windows to ornate stained glass, beautiful glazing definitely gives a property its finishing touches.
It’s fairly common to see period properties with arched windows, as well as some less common shapes like circular windows and ornate gable ends. While we don’t recommend single-glazed replacements for these windows, we can closely match your new double glazing to mimic the original look.
Not every home will suit arched windows!
Don’t worry if your home isn’t suitable for an arched window, it isn’t a common feature we get asked to replace. So, if you are with the majority of home-owners looking for traditional uPVC double glazing options then we have a wide range available.
We can also supply our standard uPVC window range in 24 hours! We are one of the few window manufacturing companies in the UK that don’t ship in imported windows so we can provide one of the fastest turnaround times in the South East.
All of our windows conform to PAS24 security checks so you can be confident that our windows will be secure as well as delivered fast!
Replacing Arched Windows
Arched windows give the illusion of height and space in a room, as well as adding visual interest to a property. Not all arches are created equal, and some are more common than others.
Arched windows are also called radius windows. They are curved only at the top, and may open or remain permanently fixed. The top curved section, when fitted as a separate section, is called a fanlight, and it’s this section that’s responsible for letting extra light into your home.
If you need replacement arched windows, the key thing is to get a professional fitter to do a survey. There are many angles and curves to take into account, and the existing windows should be inspected by our team before the order is confirmed. Arched windows look simple, but it’s easy to get the measurements wrong and end up with a window that doesn’t fit the opening.
Benefits of Arched Windows
We’ve already touched on the way arched windows can illuminate dark areas of a home and give the illusion of higher ceilings. The elongated shape of an arched window naturally draws the eye upwards, making it an interesting feature, both inside and out.
Modern glazing techniques allow you you replace arched windows with double or triple glazing, and you can also vary the colour of the frames. When we replace your arched windows, we can make new frames from aluminium or plastic, depending on your preference and budget. uPVC windows are inherently low-cost, low-maintenance and attractive, while aluminium frames offer a thinner profile. We can manufacture windows in a range of standard colours, or we can create frames in one of hundreds of RAL colours instead.
When you order new arched windows, you can change the way they operate, incorporating new openings and even a sliding sash at the bottom. Georgian bars help to break up a large window and give it an interesting appearance.
