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. These windows ensure you get a seamless visual link between the inside and outside of a building, whilst also promoting openness and freshness in airflow.
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.
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 easy to clean, and their design provides them with minimal upkeep. There is a secret to unlocking them. Their moveable parts are sandwiched between two incredibly strong hardwood sides, often with a layer of felt or weather-stripping in between them to keep out 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. 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. Have a question?

We specialise in installing several types of sash windows. There are a variety of ways to arrange the number and location of panes in each type of window. We have listed our most popular sash windows below:
As one of many styles of sash windows we install, box sash windows are among the most popular. There are two vertical wooden or metal sashes of this window, each of which can be opened for ventilation. English in origin, this style became popular due to its efficiency for transferring heat and its lightweight material. Trade Timber Windows and Doors Snaresbrook’s box sash windows are also characterised by a warm and stylish exterior design that blends seamlessly with the architecture of your home. This is achieved by a unique tapered-rail device, which adds extra depth 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.
Windows with spring balanced sashes use a counterweight in addition to a balance spring. Up to 90 degrees of opening can be achieved with a Spring Balanced sash window, much more than other traditional windows.
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. 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. 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. Their distinctive appearance adds originality to the properties of the era in which they are installed.
Detailing is important to us at Trade Timber Windows and Doors Snaresbrook and the Georgian sash fitted with our two sills and arches are a real statement of quality and style. We use top class authentic parts to ensure quality workmanship so you can be certain of getting a period design that will be great.
Classic double-hung windows are Victorian sash windows. Open or close the frame by sliding the bottom half up or down, while the top half stays stationary. Traditional Victorian sash windows remain one of the most common types of windows to this day.
The gap beneath the sash where the frame meets the bottom edge is called the reveal, and it lets cold air into the house. The classic look can be enhanced further by adding ornate crowns or returns to the top and bottom. There are many beautiful colours available for our Victorian timber sash windows, including a lovely green and blue stained finish to match any exterior. Various glazing configurations are also available, including single, double, and triple glazing. Bring a unique touch to your period home with this delightful window style.

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.
There are many different types of frame materials out there, but aluminium is the most versatile. It’s lightweight, rust-resistant and, when used in a window, provides outstanding thermal properties.
Composite sashes are made from a high-density polyethene (HDPE) core sandwiched between two sheets of aluminium, creating a sash that is both strong and durable. To protect the frames against damage from the sun, weathering, animals, and chemicals, a latex acrylic finish is applied.
When it comes to windows, wood is the best choice. Natural fibres such as wood are biodegradable and renewable.
