PVCu Sliding Sash Windows

PVCu sliding sash windows which replicate the traditional vertical sliding wooden windows often seen in Victorian style properties are probably the most expensive of all PVCu windows. They are also expensive to install, as any existing box sashes (containing the weights and cords which operated the original wooden sliding windows) normally have to be removed and the internal reveals made good.
