Modifying a home in conservation areas, listed buildings and protected sites can be tricky, but here at Poplar, we have window options that are suitable for some of these homes. This includes a range of materials, shapes and finishes.

Elite Sliding Sash Window

The latest addition to our range of windows is the Elite Sliding Sash window, which complements older homes with its traditional design and features. It is a uPVC window though, so it comes complete with modern levels of energy performance with a Window Energy Rating of A as standard and is low maintenance too.

Due to its sympathetic design recreating the look of original Victorian sashes, it could allow these windows to be installed in conservation areas, protected sites and buildings with an Article 4 directive.

The design is of such a quality, it is difficult to differentiate between our sash windows and timber originals. It is this stunning design quality that has made it much easier to have a modern, energy efficient window installed into an Article 4 directive home.

Wooden Windows

Our wooden windows are another product that have been used in conservation areas, listed buildings and protected sites as they are all handmade to exacting measurements and styles. Available as casement, sash, cottage or bay windows, our wooden windows are made from sustainably-sourced softwood or hardwood, offering you a long-lasting, elegant and energy efficient product.

Should you wish to upgrade and replace your old wooden windows with like-for-like windows, these are the ideal choice. With all replacement windows in conservation areas or listed buildings, you need approval from your local council to install the products – as part of our service, we will take care of all the planning through our dedicated planning team. Each of our windows is made to complement your home and sympathise with the original windows to make the approval process easier.

Secondary Glazing

If completely replacing your windows is not an option, but you’re looking to improve the sound insulation or energy efficiency of your home, secondary glazing is probably the best option for you.

If you live in a listed building or conservation area, secondary glazing tends to be an accepted improvement as long as it doesn’t affect the external appearance of the property. Secondary glazing fits to your existing windows, unobtrusively increasing the comfort of your home.

It is available in a range of styles and finishes to match your existing windows. Find out more about secondary glazing.
