Do you want to add that wow factor to your home? The Residence 9 collection is a luxurious timber effect uPVC alternative to traditional timber windows.  Residence 9 windows are designed to replicate the authentic look of timber whilst incorporating modern energy-saving features.

Flush Sash Windows

Although you may not know what a flush sash window is, you have probably seen one before. Our high quality aluminium and uPVC flush sash windows have been designed to deliver a completely flush appearance. The exquisite flush frames feature a sloping edge on the exterior, with the option of a sculptured frame inside.

A variety of colours are available such as light oak, cream, anthracite grey and rosewood, just to name a few. At DM Windows, we have found the perfect balance between providing the highest quality flush sash windows whilst remaining affordable. Our flush sash windows are also often approved in conservation areas.

Heritage Windows

While there are several uPVC window styles that can help achieve that traditional look, aluminium windows have also increasingly been able to provide sought-after sophistication.

At DM Windows, our steel-look Heritage aluminium windows are designed to deliver slim sightlines whilst remaining a hard-wearing material. Their excellent corrosion-resistant properties make them effective in coastal areas. Replacing your old windows with aluminium windows have become very popular because of their minimalist design, durability and the fact that they are more cost-effective and a lightweight material compared to old steel window frames.

Our Heritage windows are available in a range of handles and locking mechanisms to compliment your home. Handle styles include; Espag, Monkey Tail, Modern and Art Deco.
