Why Choose Sash Windows?
Posted on July 25, 2018.
When you’re in the market for new windows, you may find yourselves overwhelmed with the amount of different styles, designs and types available. Do you want plastic, aluminium or timber? What about Casement, Sash or Tilt & Turn? Here, we’re going to focus on the benefits of selecting handmade, brilliantly crafted Sash windows
The first thing most people consider when looking at Sash windows is that they are both beautiful and convenient. They retain the aesthetics of a period property or can add a splash of tradition to more modern buildings – making them much more versatile than people think.
Having timber sash windows will add an authentic charm to your home and the different finishes available will highlight the mastery of the grain. Having a made to measure timber window will eliminate that cold draft you’ll often find in an Edwardian or Georgian property.
Another benefit that pushes people towards buying sash windows is that they allow you to have a traditional styling but with modern technologies making your house warm and secure.
That covers the general benefits of having a sash window, but there are other questions people will usually ask before buying sash windows.
Are they easy to operate?
Yes. Timer Sash windows have a spiral balance mechanism for smooth operation. Being able to lift and slide your windows allows simple access when you want to clean them.
Is timber prone to movement?
Because timber is a natural product, there can be some element of expansion and contraction. However, with the type of engineered timber Original Windows use this movement is kept to a minimum
Are they easy to clean?
The sliding sash option makes them very easy to clean from both the inside and outside.
Is planning permission required?
Usually, even in a conservation area, replacing sash windows will not be a problem providing they are similar to the previous windows.
What types of wood are available?
At Original Windows, you get the option of either hard or softwood, both of which are extremely high quality and our entire double glazed sash production comes with a three year guarantee.
