Sash windows are the classic old-world style of windows with a very traditional feel and are often viewed as the symbol of traditional architecture. In addition to their beautiful aesthetic qualities, they are very effective in terms of energy efficiency, as they allow natural light to filter behind them while minimizing draughts through the frame, making them an ideal choice for modern buildings that seek a classic aesthetic.
Since they offer classic looks and excellent energy savings, sash windows have long been a popular choice among homeowners. The right ones can reduce draughts and lower energy bills if they are purchased and installed correctly.
The added weight of the sashes (operating shutters) can prevent someone from lifting the window open. The extra weight also helps slow down entry by a burglar due to the force needed to push the window up if there is resistance. Sash windows also have historically been more secure than other types of windows because burglars have to break through layers/panels and they are usually back-filled with glass pieces on impact and therefore difficult to enter.
You can keep your sash windows in good working order with little attention needed thanks to their design, plus their durable material helps them last for many years. The secret to opening them is hidden in plain sight. Their moveable parts are sandwiched between two incredibly strong hardwood sides, often with a layer of felt or weather-stripping in between them to keep out the elements.
And here’s the best part: unlike other traditional windows, you won’t have to worry about replacing any springs once they snap!
The windows of a home can have more of an impact on its overall value than anything else. Sash windows do create value in buildings, and because they stay open without the use of any additional equipment, they can ultimately help you save on energy costs. Would you like some help?

We install several types of sash windows. With each type, there are many variations in the number and location of panes per window. These are some of our most popular window styles:
Sash windows are available in many styles, including box sash windows. There are two vertical wooden or metal sashes of this window, each of which can be opened for ventilation. Developed in England, this style was popularized for its lightweight and excellent heat transmission. Our box sash window frames come in a range of wood finishes that perfectly blend with your home’s exterior design. It is accomplished by installing a special tapered-rail device that gives the frame extra depth.
These windows provide unprecedented levels of authenticity, craftsmanship, quality, and personalization. Box sash windows also feature triple glazing and warm edge sprigging, which provides attractive features that look good from inside or outside your home.
Windows with spring balanced sashes use a counterweight in addition to a balance spring. A Spring balanced sash window can be opened much wider than other traditional windows, up to 90 degrees of opening.
As a result of the spring-loaded balance, there is no handle to pull, and once the window has been opened, it will remain open until enough pressure builds to close it, the same way an automatic garage door does. They’re also more energy-efficient thanks to their innovative double glazed glass design. To move the windowpane with ease in all conditions, we use traditional elongated slots and wooden springs to provide the tension needed. These factors have made them the best choice for period and timely projects, in addition to their fully weatherproof, lightweight, and paintable frame.
