Essential Windows can install or repair sash windows in your home. Sash windows add style to any home, and nothing looks nicer than a sash window that is in a good state of repair.
Although many windows can be described as “sash” we tend to think of this type of window as having panes of glass that slide open vertically. But they can be horizontal too.
Sash windows are very popular in the UK, particularly in older Victorian and Georgian period – built homes, but because they are so well liked, many newer properties are now being built using sash windows too.
Traditional style older homes with the original timber sash windows look elegant but do require regular maintenance and many of the problems associated with sash windows stem from a lack of maintenance. Often the wood can rot, or the paintwork can fail, which means that water penetrates the timber and makes the window prone to fungal or insect attack.
At Essential Windows we can measure and supply new sash windows that will look beautiful and will last for a number of years.
Sash windows are very useful to have in hot weather. They can provide quite a simple but efficient cooling system inside your home. By opening both ends of the window equally, the warm air at the top of the room escapes and the cooler air from outside is drawn in.
Our company can provide the aesthetic beauty of sash windows whilst overcoming some of the shortcomings we associate with them, such as the need for regular maintenance and painting, and a lack of energy efficiency in colder weather. Our uPVC sash windows give you the best of both worlds.
