Sliding sash windows – combining traditional styles with modern technology

Enjoy the alure of this timeless style without compromising on functionality, efficiency, or security. Choose Somerville Glass and Windows Ltd for A-rated, Heritage Rose sash windows, supplied and installed in Reading.


Classic British designs brought into the 21st century

There’s no arguing the elegance of a sash window. However, traditional timber models can be a huge headache to maintain. Having worked with customers across Reading for over 40 years, we’ve often been called out for windows that no longer open due to decades of gloss paint, draughty installations, and even those where jamming and sticking is causing a real threat to safety.


We provide modern sliding sash windows which combat all the age-old problems we used to see with these systems. With state-of-the-art sliding mechanisms, double glazed technology and highly rated insulation, our new products reduce noise, operate easily, and work to keep your home secure and warmer for longer.
