Autumn Home Improvements in Bracknell, Berkshire are the timber slide and tilt sash windows specialists
'Choices' traditional vertical sliding windows, meet the demands of modern life
Developed with elegance and practicality, 'Choices' slide and tilt vertical sliding sash timber windows meet the demands and needs of modern day life, as their versatility also means that cleaning and maintenance of the windows is a breeze!
Craftsmanship and beauty come as standard
'Choices' slide and tilt timber windows operate the same as a traditional sash window, but feature an added benefit which makes it easier to clean as they tilt inwards! Easy to operate, the handle of the window rotates by 90 degrees to allow the window to tilt open. This also enables the user to utilise a secure ventilation position. For security and safety, the handle can also be locked in the same position.
