According to Historic England, there are around 10,000 conservation areas across the UK. A conservation is an area of specific architectural or historic interest. Properties located in conservation areas are protected by legislation that limits the level of renovations allowed on the building. Any works carried out must be in keeping with the area’s particular character and ensure that a building’s heritage aesthetic is maintained.

Can I install uPVC windows in conservation areas?

House with Sliding Sash Windows
The simple answer is YES. uPVC windows are often accepted for use in conservation areas across the UK. Before you start a conservation area window replacement project, however, you will need to liaise with the local authority to ensure that the windows you intend to use do not detract from the area’s character.

At Victorian Sliders, we have supplied uPVC sliding sash windows for use in conservation areas across the UK. Our conservation sash windows are designed to tastefully replicate the traditional appearance of original timber windows. They can incorporate a range of classic features into their design and will help to significantly improve a building’s thermal performance capacity.
