Aesthetic Appeal

Double glazing in modern Dundee home

One of the main reasons householders are drawn to French casement windows is their aesthetic appeal which will automatically enhance your home. 

French windows reflect classic, timeless Italian Renaissance architectural designs that add a touch of class and sophistication to any home. And modern materials such as uPVC give your new French windows a sleeker, more contemporary appearance that will make your home stand out.

Unobstructed Views

When you have two standard casement windows together, a vertical dividing bar remains in the centre when you open them. This interrupts your view.

With a double-paned French window, the central post moves with the window frame so you get an unobstructed view. You can also open your windows wider.

Thermal Efficiency

UPVC (unplasticised polyvinyl chloride) double- or triple-glazed French windows provide excellent thermal efficiency, with insulation properties that minimise heat loss in winter. This cuts heating costs.

Your uPVC windows will also help keep your house cooler during periods of hot weather.

Enhanced Security

Our French windows have a locking system designed for windows by Yale, a global leader in home security. This provides enhanced protection against forced entry, and comes with a lifetime guarantee. 

A further security option is Yale SensCheck. These window sensors allow you to remotely monitor the status of your French windows in Scotland from anywhere, anytime, with the Yale Smart Living Home App. 

Increased Property Value

French Windows Scotland – FAQs

Most frequent questions and answers

French windows are so called because they became popular in 17th century France during the Renaissance period, but the earliest examples of “French” windows probably originated in Italy.

When the French returned from the Italian Wars, they brought with them Italian architectural principles of symmetry, proportion and geometry. These influences led to generously sized windows that maximised light and ventilation in buildings and could also be used as doors to provide access onto balconies.

The terms French window and French door are often used interchangeably because they both have similar mechanisms.

While French doors are full length and have a door handle, French windows are typically half length and narrower, with a window handle. But they can still provide an emergency exit.

French windows are double-paned, hinged units with a high glass-to-frame ratio and can be opened inwards or outwards, or sometimes both ways. 

The central post (mullion) of a French door or French window isn’t fixed in place but moves with the door or window when you open it. This allows for an uninterrupted view of outdoor spaces.

Friction hinges allow you to open your French window (or French door) as wide as you like, without the need for hooks or catches.

UPVC French windows cost less than other types of French windows. However, French-style windows are more expensive than standard casement windows.

Larger French windows or bespoke shapes cost more than standard sizes. Creating a new opening in a wall to install a window is more expensive than replacing an existing window. The type of glazing you choose also affects the price.
