Leaded Windows: Not just for Period Properties!

Evolution leaded windows modern kitchen

When it comes to period properties, leaded windows are still one of the most popular choices. But don’t think they are just confined to older houses; this specialist window can look very stylish on contemporary properties too. However, it’s not just the aesthetic appeal that’s important to today’s homeowner. Leaded windows have evolved to incorporate modern technologies, resulting in Evolution’s timber-alternative leaded windows being highly energy efficient and virtually maintenance free.

The Evolution of Leaded Glass

Leaded glass has stood the test of time and has remained a firm favourite for centuries. While leaded windows were originally constructed from individual pieces of glass encased by lead came, Evolution manufactures the modern-day version by applying the lead to the surface of the pane. This means Evolution’s leaded windows can now be upgraded to triple-glazing (for enhanced energy efficiency) or incorporate noise-reducing acoustic glass.

All of Evolution’s timber alternative windows are completely bespoke. If you are looking to replace your current leaded windows with like-for-like, Evolution’s trusted retail partners can design them to replicate the original. While most customers choose a diamond or square leaded pattern.

Flush Leaded Windows

Evolution’s Flush casement windows offer a timeless appeal, characterised by sleek window lines that fit flush into the frame, in contrast to Storm windows that overlap the frame. These timber alternative Flush windows feature handcrafted joints and exquisite wood-effect detailing across the frame. The minimalist appeal of Flush windows means the greater glazed area allows even more light to flood into your home. Each has excellent energy efficiency and 1.4 U value energy rating or better and a huge choice of frame colours.
