Living in a period property or conservation area doesn’t mean you have to put up with draughty, rattly windows. At St. Ives Windows, we have a beautiful range of heritage windows that have been designed for older homes, including aluminium windows and doors and uPVC windows in woodgrain finishes.

Aluminium windows are a great replacement for steel windows
If you live in an older property with steel windows, then the modern equivalent is aluminium windows. They have a thermal break, which allows them to offer maximum insulation.
Not sure which windows will fit in with your period property? Visit the St. Ives Windows showroom or speak to one of our experts today. They can help you find a style that you love, while still being compliant with local restrictions.

What is a Heritage window?
Heritage windows are windows that are designed to replace older windows in listed or period properties. In listed properties, it’s a requirement that when you install new windows, they match the style of the old ones and are in-keeping with the property, so the character of the home isn’t lost. Not only do our heritage windows look the part, they also have modern features to provide insulation and noise reduction.
What are timber alternative windows?
Timber alternative windows have been designed with all the advantages of uPVC, but with the character and charm of wooden windows. Timber windows need a lot of maintenance, including sanding and painting, and they aren’t great at insulating your home. Choosing uPVC windows in a woodgrain finish means you can enjoy the advantages of double glazing – from noise reduction to insulation and enhanced security – while you still get the great look of timber, and they are almost indistinguishable from the real thing.
What is a flush window?
A flush window sits flush against the wall, inside of protruding from the outside. While windows that protrude are fine for modern homes, many listed or period homes need flush windows that sit inside the frame. Our flush casement windows are one of the most popular styles, and we can also offer styles like sash windows which are popular in older homes. You can also customise these windows in woodgrain and many different colours.
Is it more expensive to get flush windows?
Flush windows come at a slightly higher cost as they’re more complicated to manufacture, as they need precise engineering to ensure they fit perfectly into the space. This will ensure they fit perfectly flush against the walls of your home. While living in a protected area might mean you are limited to flush windows, St. Ives Windows can give you lots of style options and ensure you still get the benefits of modern window technology.

Superior energy efficiency
Our ‘A’ rated energy efficient and triple glazed windows are tested by the BFRC, which will save you money on your heating bills. By law your windows and doors have to meet strict thermal performance regulations but you can be rest assured that our products exceed current requirements.
Energy saving is incredibly important and so is keeping your fuel bills down. We are continuously looking for ways to make our projects energy efficient and one way is to choose new PVCu windows and doors. Not only will they help to keep your project warmer, they will reduce your energy loss.
Don’t just take our word for it!
Our suppliers conform to strictly controlled and independently monitored Quality Management Systems such as ISO 9001, to ensure that everything is done correctly and according to best practise.
Our windows are tested independently by British Standards for security, weather tightness and strength performance. This means that periodically, we have to send them to independent test houses, in order to be tested to destruction.
These are just some of the many standards the products in our vast range conform to. Needless to say we take the quality of our products very seriously indeed.
