Frequently Asked Questions: Windows

When choosing windows and doors for your home, whether it’s replacement windows or a new build, the choice of windows available on the market can seem endless.

Which Windows are Right for Me?

There are many things to consider when choosing your new composite or aluminium windows, maintenance, energy efficiency, soundproofing and more. With several options available here at Riverdale Windows we will make that choice simple for you by answering the most frequently asked questions.

What kinds of windows are available?

At Riverdale we have selected the highest quality materials that work best aesthetically to elevate your home. From a minimal slimline casement window to our more decorated personalised internal style Heritage Range, we will have a design to fit your project.
We offer bespoke windows to fit your individual requirements in a comprehensive range of sizes and shapes to fit your needs, along with many styles of opening including tilt and turn, fixed frame, sliding and open out bottom. Complimented by our large range of colours available through the RAL colour system, there is plenty to get inspired by.

Energy Efficiency

Combined with a polyamide thermal break within the aluminium profile, our windows not only meet thermal efficiency building regulations, they exceed them. Our sophisticated design means that your home will be kept warm in winter and cool in summer, in turn helping you lower your energy bills.
Our smart glass technologies and multi-chambered frames insulate your home, not just from fluctuating temperatures but also from external noise. No draughts, no cold spots, just peace, quiet, and year-round comfort.

Energy Efficiency

Window Maintenance

The days of having to use noxious chemicals and expensive bills when having to bring in qualified cleaners to maintain your windows are gone. All our windows are low maintenance when it comes to cleaning which can be done by any Window Cleaner or yourself. There is no need to keep repainting them as the powder coating on the windows is there to last.


Our designs are approved by everyone. The Master Locksmith Association awarded these locks the Sold Secure Diamond Rating for lock cylinders, the highest possible rating from the Sold Secure initiative. The SBD (Secured by Design) initiative is a quality standard for burglar-proof products, developed by the PCPI (Police Crime Prevention Initiatives) to create secure windows and doors that reduce the risk of intrusion by 75%.
They have been approved by Secured by Design, the official UK Police flagship initiative which combines physical security with the principle of ‘designing out crime’.
The British Standards Institution (BSI) awarded these high-security locks the 3 Star Kitemark – the highest security rating provided – as they withstood 5 types of attacks during testing.
