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.
Installed correctly and maintained properly, sash windows are the ideal choice for any homeowner who wants to save energy. It is possible to save on energy bills and reduce draughts by installing them correctly.
The added weight of the sashes (operating shutters) can prevent someone from lifting the window open. Having the window extra heavy also makes it more difficult for a burglar to break in, since a stronger force is required to lift the window 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.
You can keep your sash windows in good working order with little attention needed thanks to their design, plus their durable material helps them last for many years. It’s all in how they open. 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 install 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:
A box sash window is one of many styles of sash windows we install. It’s a traditional style window that features two vertical wooden or metal sections – the upper and lower sashes which can open for ventilation. Developed in England, this style was popularized for its lightweight and excellent heat transmission. Our box sash window frames come in a range of wood finishes that perfectly blend with your home’s exterior design. Tapered-rail devices at the window frame add depth by adding additional taper to the rails.
These windows feature authentic materials and premium decoration options, making them perfect for any style of home. 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.
Spring balanced sashes are windows that have been modified to allow them to use a counterweight. Sash windows with Spring balance can be opened wider than traditional sash windows, up to 90 degrees.
The balance of the window is spring-loaded, so there is no handle to pull, and once it is opened, it will remain open until enough pressure builds up to close it, similar to an automatic garage door. With their advanced double-glazing glass design, they’re also more energy-efficient. The traditional method for providing tension for the windowpane to move with ease while holding firm is the use of elongated slots and wooden springs. 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.
Georgian sash windows provide additional ventilation and are perfect for homes that require period style sash windows. These additions create an original look in period properties when installed discreetly.
At Trade Timber Windows and Doors Wandsworth, our Georgian sash is fitted with two sills and arches to create a real statement of quality and style To ensure quality workmanship, we utilize only top-grade authentic parts, so you can ensure you’re getting a period piece that’s of the highest quality.
A Victorian sash window is a classic double-hung sash window. To open or close, the bottom half of the frame slides up and down, but the top half remains stationary. One of the most popular window styles in today’s market is the Victorian sash.
The gap beneath the sash where the frame meets the bottom edge is called the reveal, and it lets cold air into the house. In addition to the classic look, ornate crowns and returns can be added at the top and bottom. You can choose from a wide range of colours for our stunning, Victorian timber sash windows, including blue and green stains that go well with any modern exterior design. Alternatively, they can be built with a single, double, or triple glazing arrangement. Finish your period property with this delightful window style today.

There are different frames available for our sash windows, so you can choose the one that is best for you.
uPVC frames provide excellent energy efficiency and resistance to the elements in our Sash Windows.
Aluminium is one of the most versatile frame materials out there. In a window, it provides outstanding thermal properties despite its lightweight, rust resistance, and corrosion resistance.
We manufacture composite sashes from a sandwich of polyethene (HDPE) and aluminium, which makes for a strong and durable frame. 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.
Whenever it comes to windows, wood is the ideal material. Natural fibres such as wood are biodegradable and renewable. Plus, wood’s low perceived cost and high perceived quality meet every standard criterion set by our customers… and can certainly meet yours!.
