Authentic Georgian Style with Evolution Windows

November 12, 2018 by harp_admin

The Georgian window is the original multi paned window which became popular in the Georgian Period 1714 -1811 and was designed to bring in light, especially in darker narrow streets. Another notable feature were the intricate glazing bars which held in the brittle handmade crown glass. A lot of the earlier Georgian windows had quarter panes to the outside edge of the windows whereas the later Georgian windows had panes which were evenly split.

Classic Georgian windows have bars running across the frame and vertically to create multiple glass panes. They were developed at this time because glass was expensive. Large panes of glass were too expensive to make hence many smaller panes were used because the window tax was only reduced towards the end of the Georgian period. Georgian style replacement windows offer a truly authentic look with all the benefits of modern technology. Beautifully crafted replacement Georgian style windows come with exciting choices. Not least, the opportunity to choose from an almost limitless range of colours, profiles, finishes, handles and locks for the look you want.

Our Evolution timber alternative Georgian style casement window is one of the most authentic looking Georgian windows available on the market. Available in both Storm and Flush timber effect profiles.
