Sash windows are particularly popular at the moment amongst customers choosing to refit period properties, as they seamlessly complement historic features in old buildings. 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.
The classic look and excellent energy efficiency of sash windows have made them a popular choice for homeowners for over a century. They can reduce the impact of draughts and help save on energy bills if properly installed.
The sashes (movable shutters) have an added weight to prevent someone from accidentally 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. 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.
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.

We offer a variety of sash window types and styles. Among each type, there are different choices for the number and location of panes per window. Some of the most popular sash windows we offer are:
A box sash window is one of many styles of sash windows we install. A traditional style window, it includes horizontal wooden or metal rails that open for ventilation. Originating in England, this style was largely popularised due to its lightweight and efficient heat transfer. 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. This is achieved by a unique tapered-rail device, which adds extra depth 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. 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. Unlike traditional windows, a Spring balanced sash window can be opened wider up to 90 degrees.
A spring balance eliminates the need for a handle; once the window is opened, it stays open until enough pressure has been built up to close it, similar to an automatic garage door. The energy-saving properties of their innovative double-glazed glass design make them even more cost-effective. A traditional method of using elongated slots and wooden ‘springs’ provides sufficient tension for the window to move freely without any hindrance, while still holding in place under all conditions. We attribute this to the weather-proof, lightweight, paintable frames we offer, that allows us to serve the needs of time-sensitive and period projects.
We offer Georgian sash windows, which are unique types of windows that fit those with a need for a period style window that also provides ventilation. These additions create an original look in period properties when installed discreetly.
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 Ilford. We use top class authentic parts to ensure quality workmanship so you can be certain of getting a period design that will be great.
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. The Victorian sash is very traditional, and still make up one of the most common styles of windows today.
A sash has a natural space between the bottom edge and the frame called the reveal, which naturally encourages cold air to enter through the frame. You can further enhance the classic look by adding large, ornate crowns. You can choose from a range of gorgeous colours for our stunning Victorian timber sash windows, including blue and green staining to complement any exterior. They are also available in single, double, or triple glazing configurations. Get this charming window style today to complete your period home.

You can choose from a variety of frame materials for your sash windows.
Our Sash Windows are available in uPVC frames which are designed to offer energy efficiency and insulation from the elements.
Frame materials like aluminium are some of the most versatile on the market. Applied to windows, it provides excellent thermal properties because it is lightweight and rust-resistant at the same time.
Several layers of high-density polyethene (HDPE) with two layers of aluminium create a frame so strong and durable that, when replaced, it will last hundreds of years. In addition to protection from UV rays, weathering, animals, and chemicals that might cause corrosion on the frames, a latex acrylic finish is applied over them to ensure their longevity.
Wood windows are the best option. Several natural fibres make up wood, a renewable resource and biodegradable material.
