PVC-U vertical sliding sash windows from Synseal help companies reach a wider customer base, especially in conservation areas, according to Neil Wakeman, operations director at Millennium Windows.

The York-based Synseal fabricator and installer recently fitted VS windows into a renovated cottage in the village of Burton Leonard, which is in a conservation area. The owners, Mr and Mrs Taylor, were delighted with the result but, more importantly, the installation was signed off by Harrogate District Council after it passed its strict renovation rules.

“We manufacture and install casement windows in any colour to discerning customers in Yorkshire,” Neil explained. “However, considering the area we are in, there are a significant number of period properties with VS windows.

“The A-rated Evolve VS windows from Synseal are in a class of their own, and customers are always impressed with the results. The run-through horns and high quality hardware are particularly convincing, and they make a huge difference to customers, especially when the windows are in colour.”

Neil explained that like every customer looking to replace their VS windows, they are drawn initially to timber replacements. “When we showed Mr and Mrs Taylor the VS from Synseal, and what we could do with it, it was very easy to get them to consider a material other than timber,” he said. “They didn’t realise how good the PVC-U alternatives were until we showed them Synseal’s range of vertical sliders.”

Mr and Mrs Taylor chose to have their windows spray-painted Heritage Green, a specialist service that Millennium Windows offers. However, Neil explained that he prefers to promote Synseal’s foiled products. “Synseal’s foiled products are authentic and very hardwearing,” he said.

Millennium Windows has also completed a large project in nearby Boroughbridge, which used Synseal’s spray-painted VS windows in a conservatory.

Millennium Windows has more than 40 years of combined experience designing, manufacturing and installing high quality A-rated windows, doors, and low cost conservatories in North Yorkshire and the surrounding area.
