Sash windows are particularly popular at the moment amongst customers choosing to refit period properties, as they seamlessly complement historic features in old buildings. 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.
The classic look and excellent energy efficiency of sash windows have made them a popular choice for homeowners for over a century. 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. A burglar also has a hard time forcing a window up if it is heavier due to the additional force required. 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.
Sash windows are low maintenance thanks to their design and durable materials. There is a secret to unlocking them. Moveable parts are enclosed between two solid hardwood sides, often covered with an additional layer of felt or weather-stripping to prevent the elements from getting into them.
And the best part about our windows is that they are stronger and more reliable than even the highest quality traditional windows! Our reinforced springs prevent sagging and bending, even in the worst conditions, so you won’t have to worry about replacing any parts.
Windows are one of the most underrated and overlooked features of a home and in actuality, have more of an impact on its overall value than anything else. Sash windows are a cost-effective way to improve the value and thermal efficiency of residential or commercial properties. Looking for assistance?

We specialise in installing 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:
A box sash window is one of many styles of sash windows we install. These windows have two vertical wood or metal components; the upper and lower sashes open to allow for ventilation. The heat-transfer efficiency and lightweight nature of this style contributed to its popularity in England. Trade Timber Windows and Doors Harrow’s box sash windows are also characterised by a warm and stylish exterior design that blends seamlessly with the architecture of your home. By using a series of tapered rails, an extra depth is added to the window frame.
These windows are crafted from the highest quality materials, providing a classic look and modern soundproofing properties. In addition to triple glazing and warm edge sprigging, box sash windows offer attractive features that are visually pleasing whether viewed from inside or outside your home.
A spring balanced sash is a window that has been modified to allow it to be used with a counterweight. Sash windows with Spring balance can be opened wider than traditional sash windows, 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. With their advanced double-glazing glass design, they’re 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. These factors have made them the best choice for period and timely projects, in addition to their fully weatherproof, lightweight, and paintable frame.
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.
Detailed work is important to us at Trade Timber Windows and Doors Harrow, and the Georgian sash along with the columns and arches are real statements of quality and style. The period design you will receive from us will be made out of top-class authentic parts to ensure quality craftsmanship.
Essentially a classic double-hung sash window, a Victorian sash window boasts a classic double-hung design. Open or close the frame by sliding the bottom half up or down, while the top half stays stationary. The Victorian sash is very traditional, and still make up one of the most common styles of windows today.
The reveal is the space left between the bottom edge of the sash and the frame, and it naturally creates openings for cold air to enter. You can further enhance the classic look by adding large, ornate crowns. Our stunning Victorian timber sash windows are available in a wide range of colours, including beautiful blue and green stained finishes to compliment any exterior. Alternatively, they can be made with single, double, or triple glazing. Bring a unique touch to your period home with this delightful window style.
Although Edwardian sash windows have long been popular in historic houses, they are also becoming more popular in contemporary homes.
You can install them in a new house or renovate an existing one, and they add a sense of history. The distinctive shapes of Edwardian sash windows of the era are outstanding. Several historical features remain unchanged, which makes it unique. Edwardian sash windows that are traditional and authentic can fit any style and any job, but also will pay for themselves many times over thanks to the money you’ll save on your utility bills.

There are different frames available for our sash windows, so you can choose the one that is best for you.
Sash Windows come in uPVC frames that offer energy efficiency and insulation from the elements.
Frame materials like aluminium are some of the most versatile on the market. The material is lightweight, rust-resistant, and provides excellent thermal properties when used in windows.
Using high-density polyethene (HDPE) to strengthen the frame, we sandwich it between two metal pieces to create exceptionally strong and durable sashes. A latex acrylic finish is applied over the frames to protect them from UV rays, weathering, animal damage, and chemicals that might lead to corrosion.
When it comes to windows, wood is the best choice. The natural fibres of wood are biodegradable and renewable resources. Not only does the wood frame meet every standard criterion set by our customers, but it also performs well and is reliable. Aesthetically and functionally, our wooden frames provide a warm, cosy feel, and they are available in a variety of designs, from modern to traditional.
