PVCu Sliding Sash Windows for a Grand New Build

Justin Laurence, director of Chislehurst Developments gave us the opportunity to supply the windows for this stunning detached new build. Justin has bought from Quickslide before for a previous project and was therefore well aware of the high quality of our products and customer service. On both occasions Justin dealt with our Account Manager, James McArthur. To add to this Justin said: “I bought windows from you 9 years ago and those are still in excellent condition, so I was very confident of using you again”.

When Justin initially got in touch with us he enquired about sliding sash windows made of timber. We discussed the requirements and went over the many benefits of PVCu sliding sash windows including the heritage features, low maintenance and the superb performance of the window. Especially the heritage features designed to replicate those of traditional timber sash windows attracted Justin to the PVCu windows.

The window specification was agreed and around 30 stunning PVCu sliding sash windows in white wood effect with seamless corner welds and a traditional Georgian bar grid design were sent to production. Additionally, all the windows were manufactured to high security standards to meet the security requirements set out by building regulations for new builds. The PAS 24 security upgrade is a fully comprehensive upgrade that includes 2x upgraded lock and locking keep, reinforced tilt arms and high security locking blocks fitted at the top of the top sash. To meet the requirements of ventilation also set out by building regulations, all the windows were fitted with a subtle vent in the top sash for airflow into the property.

The most important consideration was to ensure the traditional look and feel of the windows and with the addition of our heritage features the PVCu sliding sash windows have added a traditional element to the property.

As a developer it was important to Justin that every single feature of the property adds value through appearance and function. Because the Quickslide PVCu sliding sash windows come with an easy clean slide and tilt facility, this window style quickly became the most desirable choice. With the easy clean tilt facility the buyer of the home will benefit from being able to clean all the windows from inside the home no matter which floor they are on.

It was a great pleasure working with Justin on this beautiful project and now that the property has been staged with high-end furniture it’s ready to become someone’s forever home. Justin summarised his experience with Quickslide as: “From order to completion: Excellent, even when I had some awkward requirements. I would recommend Quickslide to anyone that requires window and doors”.
