Safe, stylish, sound-reducing sash windows
Modern sash windows share the same appealing appearance as their period predecessors but contemporary manufacturing and fitting techniques mean that the sash windows of today are much more reliable and long-lasting than those of bygone times, when the trades of windows craftsmanship and fitting were changing and materials and skills were not as advanced.
The best types of timber were not as easy or quick to source hundreds of years ago, with specialist materials taking months to arrive in the country by water. Now, sash window companies can access use the most durable timber from around the world with relative ease, improving the structure and stability of the window frame. Modern moulding and carving techniques mean that the timber can be crafted to a range of standards or bespoke styles, depending on your unique requirements.
A variety of glazing options are offered, including laminated or toughened glass, although most sash windows comes with double glazed safety glass as standard. Well-made double glazed windows that are properly fitted can reduce noise disturbance and provide extra security without compromising on style.
