Sash windows Gloucestershire
The manor houses of Gloucestershire are beautiful reminders of bygone times, with their sash windows and old stone walls. Bring a bit of history into your home with Gloucestershire sash window specialist Box Sash and see how we can transform your property with a touch of classic elegance.
Popularised during Georgian times, sash windows are key features of some of the county’s best-loved manor houses, such as Snowshill and Hidcote. The period features add understated panache to traditional homes, as well as more modern properties built in the period style. Unlike older sash windows, however, contemporary versions are made with newer techniques and better quality materials to withstand the test of time.
Sash windows – built to last
Professionally made and fitted sash windows are not only beautiful but also durable, with a lifespan of decades – if not longer. Traditionally timber framed, sash windows allow plenty of light to fill the room without letting any heat escape, protecting the property from draughts and keeping your home warm in the winter and cool in the summer.
Modern sash windows are usually double glazed for energy efficiency, also reducing levels of sound pollution and providing enhanced property security when compared with single glazed versions. Most sash windows are fitted with locks and keys, too, for added peace of mind.
Easy to maintain, the upkeep of sash windows comprises standard cleaning and the occasional maintenance of moving parts to keep your investment in tiptop condition. With the correct maintenance, sash windows are built to last, but just in case a problem should arise, qualified sash window manufacturers provide a lifetime parts guarantee to ensure that help will be on hand.
Bespoke box sash windows
A key benefit of made to measure sash windows is the ability to customise designs to suit your property – and your taste. Choose a reputable window manufacturer who offers bespoke services for the most control over how your windows will look when fitted. There are all sorts of elements you can customise, from the colour of the window frames to the glazing finish.
A professional firm will make sure that your new windows match the internal and external features of your property for a seamless appearance inside and out – even the external glazing bars and horns and the interior mouldings can be perfectly matched up. You can also choose from a wide range of fittings for your windows, including sleek or satin chrome, copper and brass.
There are various glazing options to choose from, too. Most modern sash windows are double glazed with safety glass for efficiency, security and soundproofing. Safety glass is less likely to break than standard glass and poses less of a risk when damaged. Alternative glazing options include laminated, toughened or acoustic glass, while obscured options can be used to protect your privacy. For heritage homes, stained glass sash windows can make an impact and add unique character to your property.
