A sliding sash window features two glass panels that slide vertically, thereby allowing for better airflow. The word “sash” refers to a frame that holds the glass. A sliding sash window typically features two sashes that slide up and down.
Our vertical sliders are stylish and made of quality materials. What’s more, they are easy to clean and maintain. The upper sash and bottom sash tilt inwards for easy cleaning.

Sliding Sash Windows Prices
You can buy cheap casement windows from DIY stores such as Wickes and B&Q. That’s probably the cheapest way if that’s the priority. Will they stand the test of time? It’s a gamble; you won’t know the answer until they fail.
The same applies if you buy from the cheaper nationals. If you can negotiate, you may get a good price, but please look at the feedback on Trustpilot before ordering.
The cost of sliding sash windows will depend on several factors. Quality has an effect on the price, both in the materials used and the fixings.
The difficulty for you as the customer is knowing the difference. New double glazed sash windows look the same when they are fitted. It’s only in time that you start to see windows dropping because the hinges aren’t sturdy enough or frames bowing because the aluminium or steel inside the frame is not strong enough.
The fitting can also make a difference. Your windows need to move smoothly, and this relies on level fitting. Unfortunately, the industry is known for sub-contractors who value speed over quality. That’s the reason that, as a premier window supplier, we fully employ our installation engineers. They know that quality takes precedence and will take their time to ensure the perfect installation.
Sometimes, the perception of sliding sash window prices is related to house value. There is no difference in cost whether you live in Cardiff, Swansea, Newport or anywhere else. A window costs the same whether you have a 2-bed bungalow in the South Wales countryside as it does for a 6-bedroom house in the middle of Cardiff.
The difference is that when you pay for quality, you can expect your windows to last much longer. With sliding sash windows, you really do get what you pay for. Our quotes are free as standard and without obligation, so there’s no harm in letting us measure up.

Are Everest Windows Really the Best?
We would claim that our double glazing products including our upvc sliding sash windows, are just as good as Everest, especially when taking all of the factors into account. We think our consistent feedback shows that. Everest won the right to use the ‘Fit the Best’ tagline based on one strength test many years ago. Since then, they have been through many changes including closing the company and starting again twice.
We choose our manufacturers for quality, style and value and believe we match Everest for quality. When you call us, you speak to a person and are not left on hold for a long time. Our window installers are fully employed, which means that we control the quality of everything we install.
Everest sells on the basis of having a lifetime guarantee, but that guarantee is only for condensation between panes and that is an extra cost. The usual guarantees are the same as ours – 10 or 20 years, depending on the product.
With all factors considered, for peace of mind and continuous professional relationship, we believe that Heath Windows and Doors offer a better service than Everest and certainly more value.
Check our reviews and you will see that we are known to be a friendly team with an excellent reputation for quality products and service.

Are uPVC Sash Windows Better than Timber Windows?
The superiority of uPVC sash windows over traditional wooden windows or vice versa depends on various factors, including individual preferences, budget, and specific requirements.
Both types of windows have their own set of advantages and considerations:
uPVC Sash Windows:
Low Maintenance: uPVC windows are relatively low maintenance compared to timber. They do not require regular painting or staining and can be easily cleaned with a damp cloth.
Energy Efficiency: uPVC windows typically offer better thermal insulation, helping to reduce heat loss and potentially lowering energy bills.
Cost-Effective: uPVC sash windows are generally more budget-friendly than timber, making them an attractive option for those on a tighter budget.
Durability: uPVC is known for its longevity and resistance to rot, decay, and insect damage, making uPVC sash windows a durable choice.
Timber Sash Windows:
Aesthetics: Timber sliding sash windows have a natural beauty and warmth that many homeowners find appealing. They can add character and charm to a property.
Environmental Considerations: Timber is a renewable resource, making timber sash windows a more environmentally friendly choice compared to uPVC, which is a plastic material.
Customisation: Timber sliding sash windows can be more easily customised to match the architectural style of a building and can be painted in various colours or stained to showcase the natural grain.
Ultimately, the choice between uPVC sash windows and timber double glazing depends on your priorities, preferences, and budget. If low maintenance, energy efficiency, and cost are essential considerations, uPVC sash windows might be a preferred choice.
On the other hand, if you prioritise appearance, environmental concerns, and the ability to customise the windows to your liking, timber sash windows might be the better option.
It is essential to carefully assess your specific needs and consult with window experts to make an informed decision.
Of course, you may not have a choice if you live in a conservation area. We are happy to explore the options with you and price for both.,
What is the Guarantee on Sliding Sash Windows?
All our products come with a minimum 10-year guarantee. Some ranges have an even longer guarantee. So whichever glazing system you choose, you can enjoy long-lasting peace of mind.
Investing in uPVC, aluminium or timber double glazing with a 10-year guarantee is not just about peace of mind; it’s a testament to the quality and durability of our products at their core.
At Heath Windows and Doors, we stand behind the craftsmanship of our double glazed solutions, and we are committed to providing our customers with windows and doors that will not only enhance the appearance and energy efficiency of their homes but will also withstand the test of time.
