French windows - an elegant choice for the modern home

Everything you want from a window frame in one beautiful package. Thermal efficient, wide opening capabilities and enhanced ventilation, get it all with Somerville Glass and Windows Ltd in Reading.


Bring the outdoors in

The French window's best-known characteristic is its large opening. These frames are part of the flying or floating family, meaning they do not have a centre join and can open all the way out, without the obstruction of any structural elements. Without the requirement for any specific mechanisms, you can open the window both inward and outward, allowing fresh air and natural light to flood your rooms. 

Whilst framing the beautiful view of the outside world, the large glass area offers a seamless, stylish look that makes your windows the centrepiece. Combined with thermal properties and the ability to increase ventilation, this investment might be the one that's right for you.
