The best material for your replacement windows

Choosing the right style of windows for your home can have a huge impact on the overall aesthetic. The correct window choice can also boost efficiency, improve security and even add considerable value to a property. The first decision to make regarding your replacement windows is which material will be most suited to your requirements?

At Oakley Green, we install windows made from uPVC, aluminium or timber. uPVC windows are the most popular choice for UK homeowners. They are durable, thermally efficient and the most cost-effective option. Timber windows have a unique natural appearance and are ideal for more traditional properties while aluminium windows are sleek and stylish – perfect for more contemporary homes.

Window styles for every property type

Once you’ve decided which material is best suited to your home, it’s time to choose the best style for your new windows. It’s often a good idea to look at other properties in your area with a similar architectural style as your own. Find which ones have the most appropriate style of windows and they’ll probably look great on your home.

If you live in a modern property, professionally installed windows will enhance your home in many ways whatever style you choose. Casement windows are a popular choice while sash windows provide great ventilation capacity and a bespoke feature element. If you want to maximise natural light intake, bay windows create a feeling of light and space with their elegant curved design.

For more traditional properties, sash windows are sometimes the essential choice. At Oakley Green, we install both flush sash windows and sliding sash windows to match any heritage property’s requirements.
