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. 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.
Installed correctly and maintained properly, sash windows are the ideal choice for any homeowner who wants to save energy. When specified and installed correctly, they can be a cost-effective way to regulate temperature and minimize the effects of draughts.
The sashes (operating shutters) have a great impact on the window’s strength and its weight. 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.
Sash windows are low maintenance thanks to their design and durable materials. The secret is in the way they open. To reduce the risk of rust, the moveable components are sandwiched between two incredibly strong hardwood sides, often with a layer of felt or weatherstripping in between.
It also won’t need any spring replacement once it snaps, unlike other traditional windows!
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. Need assistance?

We install several types of sash windows. Each window type has many variations in the number and location of its panes. Some of the most popular sash windows we offer are:
There are many styles of sash windows we offer, including the box sash. It’s a traditional style window that features two vertical wooden or metal sections – the upper and lower sashes which can open for ventilation. This style originated in England and became popular due to its lightweight and efficiency in transferring heat. The box sash windows give homeowners a clean and classic look by enhancing the outlook of any property and are also designed to blend seamlessly with the building structure, making them an aesthetically pleasing choice for homeowners. By using a series of tapered rails, an extra depth is added to the window frame.
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.
Spring balanced sashes are windows that have been modified to allow them to use a counterweight. Unlike traditional windows, a Spring balanced sash window can be opened wider up to 90 degrees.
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. Due to their innovative double-glazing design, these windows are also more energy-efficient. To move the windowpane with ease in all conditions, we use traditional elongated slots and wooden springs to provide the tension needed. The combination of these features, combined with our weatherproof, lightweight, and paintable frames have proven to be the most popular choice for period and time-sensitive projects.
These Georgian style sash windows provide extra ventilation and are an excellent choice for those in search of period style sash windows. These components integrate discreetly into period properties and bring a sense of originality to them.
