Timber Sash Windows

5/5

Our sash windows have two movable glazed panels that slide vertically to open, and they come in a number of different styles so you can find the right window for your house. We offer a variety of designs, materials, colours and glazing options, as well as a range of attractive decorative accessories to complement the style of your home.

Sash windows are very typical for Victorian And Edwardian style buildings adding them the unique and original style.

Brand new windows come as double glazed by default which brings up the thermal properties of a property maintaining the historic look.

Product information

Traditional sloping sash windows are very popular throughout the British island. These allow for single or double or triple-glazed window panes to be added, with the traditional weights. The right tool. The right size. The right material. It all comes together with the country cottage to the modern urban house.

Features & benefits

  • Timber sash windows could be of two types, traditional cords and weights or spring balanced. The difference between them is primarily the box size, 100mm in the case of cords and weights, and 60mm when talking about spring balanced. Apart from that there are no differences between those two types of windows. All of them can go with stuck on astragal bars of different sizes to accommodate the requirements. By default sash windows are with cords and weights but occasionally depending on the openings we suggest spring balanced sash windows to facilitate smoother replacement.

FAQ

A traditional sliding sash window is a good option for a residential dwelling because a full pane of glass only has to be lifted instead of opening outward. A sliding sash window can be manually operated using a pole or crank, or mechanically by the use of weights and cords.

Although there is no standard time frame, many timber sash windows have lasted a hundred years with regular maintenance. For the best quality window with a lifespan of around 25-30 years, you should look out for simple features such as a weather proof lip on the edge or high quality seals, as well as an old fashioned cross bar for ventilation.

Research shows that an average home can increase in value by 10% with a new installation of double glovers windows. It is much more appealing for buyers to purchase a home with newer windows, as they won’t have to spend money replacing the windows themselves.

Sash windows are more traditional and have a counter-weight in the form of a steel, cast-iron or leaden weight that is balanced by the sash. They can be fitted with insulation in the window pockets, which are hollow box frames on an inside of an older window.
