A Complete Guide To Orion’s Replacement Windows

It will soon be much lighter later in the day as the clocks are due to go forward at the end of the month which will put your windows firmly in the spotlight.

Cream UPVC Windows

What kind of shape are your existing windows in? Are they lacking the stylishness they possessed upon their initial installation? Do they also feel noticeably less secure than they once did?

If you know in your heart that they’ve seen better days in any respect, they need to be replaced and there’s no time like the present to do it. If you look at Maverick Windows serving Houston and nearby areas, you will see how quickly trends in window designs change. Why are you not updating yours? 

Orion Windows has one of the most diverse replacement window ranges in the industry and here’s our guide to what’s available.

Casement Windows

Casement windows have proved to be a timeless window design and are most typically fitted into traditional properties.

They contain outwardly opening glass panes that are operational thanks to being hinged with one or more hinges at the top or side of the design. You can have a casement window supplied in a custom-made shape and size and it is also notorious for having a very trim frame.

Tilt & Turn Windows

The versatility offered by a tilt & turn window will appeal to many people as you can create contrasting openings.

Turn the handle once and it will cause the window to tilt inwards and generate a neat little opening, with the other option being to perform an upwards turn of the handle when the window is closed to cause the window to open inwards. The latter opening is ideal if the window needs cleaning as it enables you do it from inside the house.

Sash Windows

There are two frames included in a sash window, one sitting on top of the other. You can manoeuvre each of the frames interchangeably.

Very often glazing bars are utilised to create small glazed sections and further enhance the elegance of the design. UPVC sash windows are purposely crafted to replicate the appearance of an original wooden sash window.

Georgian Windows

Similar to sash windows, Georgian windows would originally be built from timber and contain immaculate Georgian bars.

They still retain their popularity to this day as they’re perfect for those wanting a replacement window that fits in effortlessly with their traditionally styled home. Incorporating Georgian bars results in a window that seemingly consists of multiple pieces of glass, when in actual fact it is one glazed pane.  

Heritage Windows

It can be difficult finding a suitable replacement window for listed buildings and properties located in conservation areas. Planners will only allow new windows that retain the character of such residences.

Heritage windows promise to accomplish this as they are strongly influenced by 19th Century flush sash timber windows. They even come fitted with the same type of hardware that you would get with a flush sash timber window.
