Sash windows are a traditional, vertically sliding form of window found throughout the UK. They consist of two or more panels made up of smaller sections (usually 3) that slide in and out at the same time. It is often tough to know when your sash windows need to be replaced. There are several signs, which can help you tell if you need to do this as soon as possible. Some of these include – warped and rotting wood frames, inky mold forming under the glass, and rattling windows. If you are a little unsure of what to look for, below are some few more signs that will help you along the way:
If your sash windows are draughty, it’s likely that the frame is rotting. The timber will have started to rot and you should be looking for a new window irrespective of whether the glass is still intact as this will only go on getting worse. If the frame is in poor condition, you can put up with it for a while longer but when they do fail, they can fall out completely. It’s actually much better to replace them before this point as the frames may become harder to fix and could cost more money.
The next time you’re sitting quietly at home, turn off the TV, sit down, and listen to the windows. Are they rattling? Is there an unpleasant whistle on windy nights when you try to sleep? If any of these are a problem for you, then it’s likely that your windows require replacement. This is because your sash windows have reached the point where they need servicing or repairing. Please give us a call and we’ll schedule an appointment at one of our showrooms to have our experts take a look at your sash windows.
Sash windows should be moved easily within their generous weatherings, but too often we find them exceptionally hard to open or close. This commonly happens because window cords have been overtightened over the years (if they ever had any give in them at all). Overtightening sashes can cause irreparable damage to your window frames and can prompt the need for windows replacement.
Sashes that don’t work properly let the heat out, reducing the effectiveness of double glazing and making your sash windows the costly culprit for energy bills soaring. The problem with cracked or broken sashes is that they are almost impossible to see until they are replaced.
To keep your sash windows functioning at a peak level, it’s important to ensure you don’t ignore the minor problems when they arise.
They can build up to even bigger problems in time. When you notice your sash windows are unable to function as intended, it’s time to get them replaced.
Functionality problems from a Sash window may come in many forms – such as, windows not being able to open or close properly, not locking into place appropriately or issues with latches and other similar problems.
Sash windows are typically a feature of period properties and should give your home a unique look and character. If you notice wood rot from within the sash frame or distortion as there is no longer a good fit between the two; this means your window is struggling to keep out the elements and needs replacement. The woodwork is often compromised before the glass or sashes of the window when they haven’t been replaced in many years.
Investing in sash window replacements has numerous long term benefits as opposed to fixing and maintaining them on an annual basis. A new window can sometimes pay for itself in just a few years and doesn’t fail as easily. Replacing your faulty sash windows can bring a range of benefits including better access, cost savings, increased security and reducing your carbon footprint. Below are some few more benefits of replacing your sash windows.
Wouldn’t you like to lower your energy bills? Reducing the amount of heat lost from your home could help you save on heating bills.
