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. Sash windows are effective and practical, allowing natural light to filter into the room while keeping out the cold. Because they don’t move around like other types of windows, they make a great choice for an architect or engineer who wants classic aesthetics and high levels of efficiency.
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.
One of these features is the additional weight added to the sash of a window which prevents them from being easily lifted. 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.
Sash windows are also very cost-efficient, which is ideal for anyone looking to simply replace their old windows or add more to an existing home. The secret to opening them is hidden in plain sight. Most of their moving parts are encased between two incredibly strong hardwood sides, and a layer of felt or weather-stripping encloses them from the elements.
Here’s what’s even better: unlike other traditional windows, you’ll never have to replace springs once they break!
In terms of real estate, a home’s windows are considered to be one of its most valuable assets.

Box sash windows make a beautiful addition to any home, offering functionality and beauty in harmony. 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 windows are perfect for modern homes, with an exterior design to suit a range of different buildings. By using a series of tapered rails, an extra depth is added to the window frame.
The windows are made from high-quality materials and decorated with premium materials to fit any home style. Box sash windows also feature triple glazing and warm edge sprigging, which provides attractive features that look good 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.
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. Due to their innovative double-glazing design, these windows are also more energy-efficient. We use the traditional method of elongated slots and wooden ‘springs’ to provide tension for the windowpane to move with ease but still hold firm in all conditions. These factors have made them the best choice for period and timely projects, in addition to their fully weatherproof, lightweight, and paintable frame.
Georgian sash windows provide additional ventilation and are perfect for homes that require period style sash windows. Their distinctive appearance adds originality to the properties of the era in which they are installed.
A real statement of quality and style, the Georgian sash with its two sills and arches are an important detail for us here at Trade Timber Windows and Doors Kingston-Upon-Thames. We use top quality, genuine parts to ensure excellent quality so you can be sure you’ll get an awesome period design.
Essentially a classic double-hung sash window, a Victorian sash window boasts a classic double-hung design. By sliding the bottom half up or down, and keeping the top half stationary, the frame can be opened or closed. 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. There are many beautiful colours available for our Victorian timber sash windows, including a lovely green and blue stained finish to match any exterior. Alternatively, they can be made with single, double, or triple glazing. Get this charming window style today to complete your period home.
