Slimline Windows for Heritage Homes

Published 8 August 2023 by Sternfenster

Heritage homes have a timeless appearance that can be the envy of people living in more recently built properties. Traditional houses often have a charming, classic aesthetic and possess more personality than many 21st century new builds. One of the many features that make heritage homes stand out is their windows, but underperforming original frames will need to be replaced eventually. For homeowners looking to renovate their heritage home and replace traditional steel windows, aluminium slimline windows are the perfect solution.  

The Best Slimline Windows for Heritage Homes 

When it comes to renovating their heritage property, many homeowners seek to protect the classic look, while also installing products that offer modern day performance. For example, lightweight aluminium frames can closely replicate the look of steel and windows made from this material can be more beneficial for your home. Modern aluminium windows can enhance the energy efficiency of a period property, alongside capturing the traditional window style. 

Sternfenster is a market-leading window and door fabricator, offering the Heritage 47 range of slimline aluminium windows. The Heritage 47 profiles can be used to replace steel windows in listed buildings and also bring a touch of classic charm to more contemporary properties. As aluminium is not as heavy as steel, the Heritage 47 windows have a simple functionality and are easy to install. 

Finding the perfect window design can be a challenge but with the Heritage 47 range, homeowners can enjoy the best of both worlds – authentic style and contemporary performance.

Benefits of Slimline Windows 

Aluminium is one of the strongest materials used in the window and door manufacturing process today. Not only is aluminium incredibly strong and capable of supporting heavy structures, this durable material can withstand the natural elements and requires little maintenance to remain in top condition. 

Here are the main benefits of aluminium slimline windows: 

• Exceptional performance – Windows in the Heritage 47 range are capable of achieving U Values as little as 1.5W/m²K, meaning they offer excellent heat retention. The slimline aluminium windows are built to last and will provide peak performance for many years to come. With aluminium windows installed, homeowners can achieve the look of genuine steel frames, while also enjoying unrivalled performance.

• More natural light – Modern uPVC frames can be chunky at times and this thicker design can be problematic, especially if you are hoping to enjoy maximum natural light in your home. With slimline windows, heritage homeowners will have an enhanced view of their surroundings and their rooms will be flooded in stunning sunlight. The sleek, slimline aluminium frames closely replicate the look of vintage steel and make it possible for homeowners to protect the heritage personality of their property, without sacrificing any of their views.

• Improved energy efficiency – The cost of energy in the UK has never been higher and more and more homeowners are looking for ways to save money on their heating bills. When compared to traditional single glazing, modern aluminium windows have the capability to successfully regulate a property’s temperature all year round. Windows in the Heritage 47 range achieve a B-energy rating and make cheaper energy bills a reality

• Versatile & bespoke designs – Slimline aluminium windows are available in a variety of different styles. Homeowners can keep things simple with a fixed or casement window, or opt for a more modern and versatile frame such as the popular Tilt & Turn profile. Alongside having a selection of frames to choose from, the slimline windows are available in a large selection of colours, with multiple hardware options to choose from.

As you can see from the list above, slimline aluminium windows have many benefits and can enhance properties in more ways than one. Recapture the traditional appearance of an older property and enjoy many modern benefits with the Heritage 47 slimline windows range.
