Sash windows are a beautiful architectural creation that is often seen as the mark of a traditional style. They are also very effective from an energy efficiency point of view, as they allow natural light to filter behind them whilst mitigating draughts through the frame, often making them popular choices for modern-day buildings looking for a classic aesthetic.
For over a century, sash windows have been a popular choice for homeowners because of their classic looks and excellent energy-saving properties. If they are bought and installed correctly, they can help save on energy bills and reduce the effects of draughts easily.
Our windows are custom-made with highly durable sashes that make it difficult for unauthorised individuals to lift them. It also makes entry more difficult for burglars as a force is needed to push the window up in the case of resistance. Sash windows are known to be more secure than other types of windows because a burglar must break through the different panes of glass if they want to gain access.
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. There is a secret to unlocking them. They are sandwiched between two powerful hardwood sides, which are often weather-stripped or covered with felt and other materials to prevent leaks.
And here’s the best part: unlike other traditional windows, you won’t have to worry about replacing any springs once they snap!

We install sash windows in many different styles and materials throughout the whole of the UK. Among each type, there are different choices for the number and location of panes per window. Here are our most popular sash windows:
A box sash window is one of many styles of sash windows we install. They feature two vertical sashes – upper and lower – that are made from wood or metal and can be opened for ventilation. This style originated in England and became popular due to its lightweight and efficiency in transferring heat. Our box sash window frames come in a range of wood finishes that perfectly blend with your home’s exterior design. Tapered-rail devices at the window frame add depth by adding additional taper to the rails.
These windows are constructed with genuine materials and come with a choice of high-quality grills and lattices, making them the perfect choice for your home. Triple glazing and warm edge sprigging are also included in box sash windows, which offer attractive features your home can benefit from inside the home or outside.
Using a spring balanced sash means modifying a window to use it with a counterweight. Unlike traditional windows, a Spring balanced sash window can be opened wider up to 90 degrees.
Its spring-loaded balance prevents a handle from being used, so, once the window is open, it will stay there until enough pressure is applied to force it shut, like an automatic garage door. With their advanced double-glazing glass design, they’re also more energy-efficient. The traditional method for providing tension for the windowpane to move with ease while holding firm is the use of elongated slots and wooden springs. Combined with lightweight, weatherproof, and paintable frames, our products have become the top choice for time-critical projects.
Georgian sash windows are a unique type of window that provides additional ventilation and provide a period style sash window. When installed, they are a discrete inclusion that adds an original look to period properties.
As part of our commitment to quality and style, we matched the Georgian sash with our two sills and arches. We use top quality, genuine parts to ensure excellent quality so you can be sure you’ll get an awesome period design.
Double-hung sash windows can be described as Victorian sash windows. By sliding the bottom half up or down, and keeping the top half stationary, the frame can be opened or closed. Window sashes made in a Victorian style are still among the most common types in use today.
There is typically a large gap below the sash where the frame meets the bottom edge – this is called the reveal, and it allows cold air to enter through this space. If desired, the classic look can be further enhanced by the addition of ornate crowns and returns. You can choose from a wide range of colours for our stunning, Victorian timber sash windows, including blue and green stains that go well with any modern exterior design. Alternatively, they can be made with single, double, or triple glazing. Bring a unique touch to your period home with this delightful window style.
