Will Modern Or Traditional Windows Best Suit Your Home?

There are far easier jobs in life than attempting to replace your current windows as you cannot underestimate the impact windows have on the overall aesthetics of a property, least of all your own.

Any replacement windows you invest in need to be true to the original style and character of the house, otherwise you run the risk of diminishing its appearance and seeing your money wasted.

You should have no difficulty finding a suitable replacement window at Bon Accord Glass as we have an extensive window range made up of all sorts of modern and traditional window styles.

To determine if a modern or traditional window style is what your home needs, you really need to see all of our windows in person first. But, for now, here’s a summary of three of our most popular windows…

Aluminium Windows

You can immediately detect when you’re looking at an aluminium window as it has an incredibly slender profile and this makes the glass inside of it the primary focus of the design due to it being expansive. External views through an aluminium window are unbeatable.

All of the coloured finishes used on our aluminium window frames are powder-coated and applied abiding by a strict 11-stage process. This method of application is what gives our aluminium window finishes such emphasis.

Flush Casement Windows

It was way back in the 17th Century that the first flush casement window was created, and 400 years on, the flush casement is still well-loved. Our flush casement range is a recreation of a traditional flush casement, with all the usual characteristics retained (flush fitting), only with the window manufactured using a UPVC frame, rather than timber.

We have labelled the range ‘Envisage’ as we could envisage it being a big hit with householders seeking a modern version of a classic window that would improve the look, security and thermal efficiency of their homes.

Sliding Sash Windows

Another classic window design that dates back several centuries is the sliding sash window. As its name suggests, the window has a sliding mechanism, enabling one or more movable sashes to open, and our modern sliding sash windows offer exactly the same operation.

But, again, we have crafted the sliding sash window from UPVC, as opposed to wood, so that it can resist weathering, something that leaves traditional sliding sash windows looking tired and threadbare. They really suit traditional residences if you happen to live in a long-standing home.


You can get information about our other modern and traditional window styles here, but if we were you, we’d head to our Aberdeen showroom to fully appreciate what they have to offer.
